A fabulous return to glossy romance for teens!

Alice Henshaw thought she'd got over her first love, Jack. Even an invitation to his wedding doesn't get to her - well maybe just a little. But Alice has a new boyfriend now, and she's going to put the past behind her . . .

Arriving for the weekend at the stunning Chateau near Paris where the wedding will be held, Alice and her best friend Lara, their boyfriends in tow, are all set for a romantic few days in the city of lovers.

But weddings have a way of shining a light on relationship issues, and it isn't long before Alice is questioning her feelings for her boyfriend Cal, along with those for the bridegroom Jack . . . not to mention her growing unease with Jack's fiancee Nathalie.
