Ellie and Dan are living proof that opposites attract . . .
He always follows instructions and she throws the manual away. He loves sports whereas Ellie s allergic to any form of exercise. Ellie doesn't have a mother. And Dan does - a mother who wants to take over . . . everything!
At first Ellie is thrilled to have Linda as her 'adopted' mother and to be a part of the close, loving Cooper family. But when she and Dan decide to get married and wedding plans progress, she starts to wonder: is it normal for Linda and Dan to speak on the phone twice a day? How on earth do they come to be having a reception with Chilean bloody seabass and humongous bloody white ribbons tied everywhere when all she wanted was a quiet registry office?
Is Ellie marrying Dan . . . or his mother?
