UPCOMING RELEASE: Marrying Out of Money
We posted last week about Nicky Schmidt's third novel, The Anti-Model Agency, which is due for release next year. However, we don't have long to wait until Nicky's second novel is published. Marrying Out of Money will hit the shelves in November. Here's the synopsis (via ChickLitClub).
Marrying Out of Money follows the life and perils of rich
coffee heiress Lou, who is madly infatuated with the less than erudite,
tree-hugging, scruffy-to-the-point-of-smelly Hedge - member of rock band 4BY4.
Lou's social-climbing mother decides that enough is enough, and hooks up with a
poverty-stricken aristocrat to arrange a marriage between Lou and the snotty,
outrageously good-looking Harry Partington - 40th in line to the throne. Not
surprisingly, for both parties, it's hate on first sight. Still desperately in
love with rock star Hedge, but with her beloved father ill and wanting nothing
more that to see her married, Lou sets about making herself so repulsive that
the aristocrats decide a future on a derelict council estate is preferable to
having her as a daughter-in-law. Of course, nothing goes according to plan, and
Lou finds herself questioning the wisdom of her actions, when she discovers
that horrible Harry has a sensitive side after all.
