Dreams for the future and a secret that will change everything.
The first time Zoe Tisdale’s Barbie and Ken dolls got married, it was all about the ceremony. Twenty years later, she’s devoured hundreds of wedding magazines and planned thousands of events. All of her dreams will come true when she’s promoted to Event Manager at the lodge she’s worked at for the last decade. Of course, life seldom works out the way one hopes it will.
