Synopsis

"A brilliantly juicy Cinderella tale."—Heat


Beautiful but broke student Polly
and scheming social climber Alexa may have grown
up in the same place, but they couldn't be more
different. Polly's just fallen for Max, a handsome country vet.
But Alexa can't be bothered with love—any guy with a pedigree
will do, mind you, as long as he comes with a title, a mansion,
and a family tiara.



Alexa wiggles her way into friendship with Florrie, a clueless
aristocrat who could support entire countries with her spare
change. Suddenly the grandest doors swing open for Alexa,
and a new life is so close she can taste it. Polly could care less
about Max's money, but his mysterious habit of disappearing
scares her. What's he hiding?



Razor sharp in its wit, and as fresh as newlywed royals, Marrying
Up
reveals how sometimes a rags–to–riches story can rip a girl
to shreds—and how sometimes the rewards of love aren't always
what you expect.


"Holden's tale of social snobbery and bare–faced ambition is a modern fairy tale that chimes perfectly with our post–Will and Kate world."—Glamour
