This is a delightfully fun story. Marrying Up introduces three very unique, spunky females, all of British heritage and all from vastly different social strata. Each one has their eye set on a goal, but each will go about it in her own way. Polly is an archeology student, determined to make a name for herself in the field and win her prince charming through her field. Allison is a social climber who changes her name to Alexa and builds a backstory for herself, hoping to catch a prince. Florence, otherwise known as Florrie, is an aristocrat in her own right, and is determined not to do anything unless it is fun. Max is a local veterinarian with a secret heritage who deals with all three. He loves Polly, Alexa is determined to marry him, and Florrie wants nothing to do with him, even though he is betrothed (through no choice of his own) to her. Add a scheming mother and friend, and hilarity ensues.
Marrying Up is a delightfully charming story with fantastic characters and a fast paced, funny storyline. Any girl who has ever dreamed of marrying a prince will love this novel. And many will come to realize that the prince they once dreamed of is often right in front of them.
Scheming social climber Alexa may be humbly born, but she's a class-hopping cruise missile aimed at the very top of the gold-digging tree. Only a title, a mansion, and family tiara will do. Befriending clueless aristocrat Florrie means the grandest doors swing open and the prince of her dreams is in sight. But has Florrie's mother, the formidable Lady Annabel, figured out Alexa's scheme? Beautiful but penniless student Polly, meanwhile, is in love. But Max, the handsome young vet she's found, might not be as ordinary as he seems.
Eye-widening snobbery and more than naked ambition abound in this deliciously satirical novel of the upwardly mobile.
