Twenty eight year old Holly Hastings knows there has to be more to life than what she currently has. Writing obituaries pays to a certain extent, but it is not the dream job or salary of the creative writer she dreams of becoming. The occasional one night stand does not add up to true love either. Since money and its associated luxuries will not come to her, then Holly is going after them, and she is taking her best friend George along for the ride. All Holly needs to do is find a single millionaire to make all her dreams come true.

Marrying Up brings a sparkling star, Jackie Rose, onto the literary scene. Packed with memorable characters and dozens of hilarious moments, Marrying Up is a Grande cup of reading pleasure which will transport booklovers from New York to sunny Florida and then across the United States to California.

With Holly learning everything she knows from America’s sweetheart Marilyn Monroe, one will find it hard to dislike her even though she has a strong tendency to be shallow. Great enjoyment comes simply from watching her attempts to find her Mr. Rich. A surprising twist in the romance department will have readers flipping rapidly through the pages in amazement.

When not laughing about Holly and George’s antics, readers will also find themselves in a lake of reflection, pondering life choices and the risks we are all willing to take to find happiness and love.
