ABOUT THIS BOOK
Lesley has always fancied herself as an amateur sleuth, a sort of modern day Miss Marple without the support stockings.
So when Al wants to hire her to investigate his elderly uncle's young fiancée, she jumps at the chance. It doesn't hurt that the job will involve posing as Al's girlfriend and joining his glitzy, star-studded family on holiday in Nice.
Stella still can't quite believe she's engaged to legendary actor Sir Peter Bradshaw. She accepted what she thought was a deathbed proposal. Now she has a living, breathing fiancé and a wedding to plan.
First, though, she has to get through a holiday in the South of France with Peter's extended family, who all seem convinced she's a gold-digger with her sights set on the family fortune.
As Lesley bonds with Stella over shopping trips and bottles of rosé, she thinks she has it all figured out. After all, it's no great mystery why a young woman would marry a fabulously wealthy seventy-two-year-old with a heart condition, is it? It's an old story.
And Al may be the nicest boyfriend she's ever had (even if he is fake), but Lesley believes in instant attraction and there's just no spark ... no matter how fit he looks in his swimming trunks. So there's no chance he's going to grow on her.
But people have a way of surprising you, as she's about to discover ...
FOR LOVE OR MONEY by Clodagh Murphy is a wonderful story full of laughter, misunderstandings, and a few secrets thrown in for good measure. But it is the warmth and connection that I felt with the characters that make this story truly special.
Lesley is happy enough being single, even if her parents are not, and her freelance job is perfectly fine albeit a little dull at times. When Lesley meets Al at a singles event, she knows instantly that there is no connection no matter how nice he is, but when he asks her to pose as his girlfriend for a while to unmask a potential gold-digger who is about to marry his wealthy, famous, old uncle, Lesley cannot refuse! Soon, she finds herself mixing with successful actors and holidaying in France, and even becoming friends with the supposed 'gold-digger' herself, Stella. But the more time Lesley spends with Stella the more she is sure that Stella is not after anyone's money but that Stella is certainly hiding something, but what is it?
Lesley is also getting to know how lovely Al really is and when his ex-girlfriend shows up and appears to want Al back, Lesley cannot help but feel a flutter of jealousy. Throw in a mother obsessed with getting on YouTube, some heartbreaking secrets from the past, and plenty of sizzling tension, and this book has got it all!!!
I adored every word of this book and from the moment I picked up FOR LOVE OR MONEY by Clodagh Murphy I couldn't put it down. Lesley is hilarious and felt like a best friend by the end of the first chapter and I loved watching her realise what a good guy Al is. Stella is an enigma for some of the book where I knew she wasn't using anyone but yet knew that she was hiding something from everyone. When the truth is revealed my heart broke for what had happened to her and I desperately wanted her to find the happiness and love that she deserved.
FOR LOVE OR MONEY by Clodagh Murphy made me laugh, made my eyes tear up a little, and kept me hooked from start to finish, and is sure to please fiction fans everywhere. Buy this book and enjoy a beautiful story that has something for everyone!
