The Bride Will Keep Her Name by Jan Goldstein

Synopsis (from the publisher): Madison Mandelbaum is on top of the world. She's got a loving—though totally neurotic—family, two fabulous best friends, and best of all, she's head-over-heels in love with Colin Darcy, an investigative reporter for NBC, distant relation to the Queen, and—most importantly—Maddie's fiancé. Be careful what you wish for, her mother's always warned, but, with Colin on her arm, Maddie is certain, at last, nothing could possibly go wrong.

But with one dream-filled week to go before the wedding, an anonymous email arrives suggesting her fiancé may not be the man she thinks he is. Someone's idea of a pre-wedding joke, she's certain. Yet as more sinister phone calls, text messages, and disturbing clues turn up, all linking Colin to the murder of a sexy callgirl, Maddie realizes that she must get to the bottom of this. Fast.

As the clock counts down toward the ceremony of her dreams, Maddie's life is turned inside out. Between dress fittings, entertaining future in-laws, planning rehearsal dinners, and putting on a brave face, Maddie and her bridesmaids are propelled into a stunning undercover investigation, plunging them into a seedy underworld of anonymous sex and backroom politics. As her breathtaking search brings her ever closer to the knowledge she desperately seeks, Maddie finds her heart being tested in ways she'd never dreamed. And in her non-stop, gasp-inducing race to take back her life and dreams, Maddie discovers just how far someone in love will go to cover up the truth, stumbling upon a shocking secret she never saw coming.
