A slick romantic comedy, which may be a little predictable with the ugly duckling of the story turning in to a swan to get her man, but it is still great fun and an incredibly enjoyable read.

Synopsis

The Importance of Being Married by Gemma Townley

Jessica Wild isn't big on commitment. 'Don't depend on anyone' is her motto. But her friend Grace, a sweet old lady she met in her grandmother's nursing home, can't believe that Jess is truly happy on her own. Eventually Jess caves and tells Grace she's got a boyfriend: her glamorous boss, Anthony Milton. When in time her fantasy boyfriend becomes her fantasy husband, Grace is thrilled for Jess. So much so, that she leaves Jess an inheritance. But there's a snag. It's in the name of Jessica Milton.

Grace trusted Jess to look after the house she adored. If Jess is to keep that trust, it will mean turning her Little White Lie into a Big White Wedding - and getting Anthony to fall in love with her and pop the question for real. With the help of her formidable best friend Helen and Gloria, a Russian escort experienced in the ways of men, Jess reluctantly learns the art of flirting, seduction and playing hard to get. But just when it appears that Operation Marriage is a success and Anthony is about to ask the million-dollar question, Jess wonders if it's right to say 'I do' for all the wrong reasons...
