From the author of 'Naked in Knightsbridge', winner of the Pink Thong Award 2009-2010 for Most Promising New Author and runner-up for Best Debut Novel comes Nicky Schmidt's much anticipated new book.


"That’s what fiction is all about, giving us a story so off the wall you just love it. And love it I did. I eagerly await the next Nicky Schmidt adventure, it’s bound to be just as brilliant. I just hope we don’t have to wait a year and a half for it!"
. . . Leah Graham, Chick Lit Reviews.

"Marrying Out of Money is a witty example of what happens when your mother meddles in your love life instead of letting nature take its course."
. . . ChicklitClub.

"I love the humour of this book. The comic moments come thick and fast and help to give pace to the plot as it covers the machinations of the dysfunctional characters. But there are some deeper, more emotional moments as well, particularly in the plot line involving the magnificent Fin."
. . . Helen Hunt, Bookersatz

"Nicky Schmidt has written a very entertaining book with some larger than life characters. I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it for a light, entertaining read."
. . . DotScribbles

"'Marrying Out of Money' by Nicky Schmidt is a sort of 'anti-romantic comedy'. The characters were over the top and hilarious, especially the two mothers. But I loved the story behind the Lou and Harry, how the young kids want to marry for love and not just money, stability, or titles."
. . . Samantha, Chicklit Plus.

"There's a surprising amount of deep and meaningful issues looked at in what is at first glance a light hearted book. These involve family, background, health and what it takes to keep a business prosperous. People would go to extreme lengths to get what they want, although the outcome isn't always what they imagined. I loved the end of the book, because several of the characters end up somewhere different. I'll definitely be rereading this one!"
. . . Jessica Pitcairn, Nayu's Reading Corner.


'Marrying out of Money' is the story of Lou Hubbard, modern-day heiress to a billion pound fortune, who is determined not to marry aristocratic playboy Harry Stomeworth in an arranged marriage. In order to extricate herself, she decides to become as undesirable as possible, with hilarious results.
