Marrying Up by Wendy Holden

Today's selection is Marrying Up by Wendy Holden. I must say it was delightful. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading the book. First of all I must say that there are a couple story lines in the story that all interrelate with one another. So, if you are not a fan of that you might not like this book.

First of all, we have Polly and Max's relationship. Let me rephrase that, a budding relationship when Max is called home. Max never tells Polly where he's from or that he's a crown prince. He just wanted to be a normal guy to her. Sometimes that never really works to well.

Next you have Allison Donald, who wants to be wealthy beyond means. She's willing to do anything to become a social highlight among the creme de la creme. So, she decides to go through a transformation. Not a physical one, but with a new persona. She heads to London to become Alexa MacDonald.

Finally, you have Lady Florence Trevorigus-Whyske-Cleethorpe (aka Florrie). The best way to describe her would be a valley girl of England. However, she is a socialite always in the scandal sheets. You wouldn't expect anything less from her.

So you have all these characters that are intertwined with each other in some way. Alexa attaches herself to Florrie trying to climb the social ladder using her. However, Florrie is too ditzy that she doesn't even know it.

Overall, I liked the book. Granted there is a lot going on in Marrying Up. However, if your not afraid to take on the challenge of keeping up with all that is going on, you might actually enjoy the story. I have to say writing a review for this story was a bit of a challenge, but I still liked the book.

That's all and I hope you enjoy whatever your reading.
