Overview


Looking for love in all the high-end places…

After writing her own obituary as an experiment, Holly Hastings realizes that her life isn't exactly blazing a trail of glory. The twenty-eight-year-old is broke, bored at work and perpetually single. But after watching an old Marilyn Monroe movie she realizes what she can do about it: Marry a millionaire—and write about how to do it! This had to be the answer to the prayers of an obituary writer who's spent more time lauding other people's lives than living her own….

Taking leave from her job (if not her senses), Holly decides to better her chances of mingling with the moneyed by getting the heck out of Dodge (aka, Buffalo, New York) and heading to millionaire-rich towns on both coasts. Her honesty and common decency make it hard to fully embrace the shallow life, but Holly finally lands herself an eligible millionaire in San Francisco and an all-expenses-paid trip to Easy Street. Too bad about that inconvenient crush she's developed on her neighbor. Will Holly stick to her plan for marrying up or will she choose marrying right?

    Painful Read

    I am sorry to say that this book is a painful read and the writing style is not engaging. There is a clear effort to make the dialogues witty and cute but the effort put is just too much that the result is to the contrary. Dry, boring, and painful.

    fantastic

    Though the plot of this book seems a bit shallow and pointless, it is much more than that. The author describes Hollys emotions very real like and adds some twists which make somethings different than they appear. It is encouraging for people to just not waste life and follow their goal and dreams like Holly did. Only what she discovered was much more.

    Marrying Up

    Dr. Martingale suggests to his high strung client, Buffalo Bugle obit columnist Holly Hastings to write her own obituary, which she does. By doing so Holly realizes she is lonely in spite of fine friends and her life is boring. When she sees the Marilyn Monroe film How to Marry a Millionaire, she decides to make that her quest culminating with How to Book, but mostly so she can begin living her own life rather than precariously that of dead people. With the help of girl pal George, Holly takes a leave of absence and begins searching for a wealthy mate; this means leaving Buffalo, which may have been the millionaire capital of America but that was two centuries ago or so. After several aborted efforts, Holly thinks she has found her affluent hunk in San Francisco so why it is that Remy next door is the one that touches her soul. Holly comes across as shallow as she chooses to seek money over a loving nurturing relationship until Remy makes her reconsider her choices. The amusing story line is somewhat inane, but chick lit fans will appreciate this MARRYING UP to a millionaire romantic romp. Harriet Klausner
