Marrying for Money
By Chrissie Manby
Have you ever thought of marrying for money? Fun romantic fiction for the girl-about-town by chick lit bestseller Chris Manby, who will make you laugh out loud.
When the glamorous Grosvenor sisters arrive in the exclusive Hamptons beach town of Little Elbow, all eyes are on them.
Gorgeous Grace and Charming Charity are soon favourites on everybody's guest-list. Except that of their neighbour, Marcella Hunter. Heiress Marcella doesn't want the competition and when Grace starts dating the dull but extraordinarily rich Choate Fitzgerald - someone Marcella has had her eye on - the gloves are off. Marcella determines to find out where the sisters really came from. And exactly how they can afford to rent a six-bedroom beach house in this millionaires' playground.
In the process, however, it becomes clear quite a few of the people spending the summer in Little Elbow are not what they seem . . .

Chrissie was raised in Gloucester, in the west of England, and now lives in London. Contrary to the popular conception of chick-lit writers, she is such a bad home-baker that her own father threatened to put her last creation on www.cakewrecks.com.
