Charlotte has an announcement and a surprise. She’s getting married – that’s the announcement. He’s OLD – that’s the surprise. He’s rich – well, that’s the icing on the cake! This was enough to make Charlotte’s Auntie Patsy begin to think about her own three daughter’s futures. Patsy Nicholson called a meeting with her daughters, Rachel, Meredith, and Shelly. She told them to “… aim high. Think old money.” But, the daughters maintained they wanted to marry for love. Patsy told them love can always go wrong “and let’s face it, it’s better to be miserable in comfort than to be miserable in poverty.”

Meredith seems to always attract the wrong guy – men that take advantage of her goodwill. Her latest, Clint, just broke up with her. After the mother / daughter meeting, she begins reading “Why Bitches Get Husbands and Nice Girls Don’t.” Ben Forsyth, heir to Bessington Manor, seems to really like her. But, she’s taking the book very literally and is literally spurning his every overture.

Rachel meets Ben’s friend, Daniel D’Abarnville. He’s really handsome! She then meets author, Gavin Jameson who was a guest speaker at her bookshop, ‘Books and More’. Gavin has told her all about Daniel’s past and it doesn’t sound good. But, Gavin is giving her mixed signals also.

Shelly is the youngest and flightiest sister. She may take mom’s advice seriously – someday.

There is some mystery woven into the story about what really happened to the girl’s father, Patsy’s husband. Patsy hasn’t even talked about him since the girls were children. The sisters have a very close relationship that Patsy had worked hard to cultivate. Once I began reading, I was engrossed hook, line, and sinker. The name would imply that Charlotte is the protagonist. She’s not. The primary character is Rachel who I believe is the middle sister and she is the ‘brainiest’ of the three. This is a short, easy read; it’s fun and enjoyable. I rated the novel at 4 out of 5.
