Will Mingo and Francois get hitched?

Honolulu’s hottest forensic accountant Mingo McCloud is launching the criminal investigation he never dreamed possible. The perp? Himself.

It’s wedding bells in Waikiki with Mingo set to marry Francois. Friends and family arrive from all over the world, and just as the intrepid pair gets ready to say “I do,” they don’t. A mysterious woman shows up at the service, claiming to be the long-lost wife of…Mingo!

Needless to say, Mingo is stunned. Not the least because he’s never dated a woman, much less married one. The whole family’s in an uproar, especially when the shady lady produces wedding pictures and love letters allegedly written by Mingo.

He and Francois are determined to unravel the mystery. But for Mingo, the shocks don’t stop coming when it appears he has a trail of busted female hearts behind him, as well as some serious grifting. What the heck is going on? Is he the victim of a conspiracy, or is something else happening? Are parts of Mingo awake and doing things he knows nothing about when he’s sleeping?

And here is the scoop!

The psychic predicted Ky would meet his one and only. What in the world does he do with two guys who both match her description?

Ky Maxwell is desperate for work. When his cushy studio PR job disappears, his former boss takes pity on him, referring him to an independent movie company going into production with a huge sci-fi trilogy.

Ky’s excited until Lisa, his prospective employer, insists on doing an astrological chart of Ky as part of the interview, along with a psychic reading. His crazy maybe-boss predicts a new man coming into Ky’s life. She goes into great detail. He’s a fire sign, probably a Leo, his first name starts with a T, he’s in his early 30s. And…he’s the one!

Ky couldn’t be less interested. He needs work. Love won’t pay the bills. He doesn’t get the job because Lisa believes their stars are out of alignment. Really? The reading is proving to be frighteningly accurate. Since he’s cut off from her, though, he has no idea which of the two wonderful new guys he meets is his forever man. How can he choose? Or will they, too, soon vanish as fast as Ky’s last paycheck?
