The groom is AWOL. It's Scout Rutherford's wedding day and in the next 24 hours, she is shot at, lied to, forced to reveal a secret, abducted at gunpoint and thrown down a ravine. But a night spent in hiding with her friend Ryder Dean changes everything she believed about their friendship and most of all herself. Nothing ever happens in Mandrake Falls. Except the day Scout Rutherford got jilted.
