Russel Middlebrook is gettin’ hitched!
The wedding is taking place in a remote lodge on an island in Puget Sound. Russel and his husband-to-be have invited all their close friends to spend the whole weekend together beforehand.
And for the first time in his life, Russel is determined to not be neurotic, and not over-think things.
But that’s before things start going wrong. Who expected a dead killer whale to wash up on the beach below the inn? And what’s this about a windstorm approaching? Then there’s the problem of Russel’s anxious fiancé, who is increasingly convinced the whole thing is going to be a disaster.
Meanwhile, the wedding is taking place near the ruins of a small town, Amazing, where, a hundred years earlier, the people supposedly all disappeared overnight. Why does it feel like the secret at the end of the road to Amazing has something to do with Russel’s own future?
Can Russel’s friends Min, Gunnar, Vernie, and Otto somehow help him make it all make sense?
It’s funny, because contrary to what the religious nutjobs tell you, I think gay guys like weddings more than anyone else. And it isn’t that we’re mocking the institution of marriage, or because we want to destroy it all to hell. It’s because we really, really want to get married.
