Kate Shaw, an acting beauty editor for a fashion magazine, has just been told that her services are no longer required. Through no fault of her own, she finds herself single, homeless and in desperate need to help her family survive its own financial and emotional crises. Known for her love of all things Jane Austen, Kate is given a freelance gig that changes everything: to research whether it is possible, in these modern times—and at a certain age—to marry well.

What starts as an article quickly turns into Kate’s real-life quest. From the polo fields of West Palm Beach to the glamour of London’s social scene, Kate chases the man of her dreams, a charming and elegant older financier. But she keeps running into a brooding Englishman who works at an impeccably Austenesque estate. Caught between Mr. Rich and maybe Mr. Right, Kate must choose what she really wants out of life: to marry for money or risk it all for love.

Editorial Reviews

"[A] delightful page-turner of a romantic comedy that's filmic in its deft depiction of characters and sharp plot twists." - THE GLOBE AND MAIL"A 'self-professed Jane Austen addict' tries her hand at gold-digging, with disastrous and hilarious results, in Izzo's charming first novel. . . . Kate's search for love contains a surfeit of laugh-out-loud moments. Spectacular descriptions of lavish, character-filled parties add further froth to the escapist fantasy." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY"Kate Shaw is the Bridget Jones for our age. Unstoppable, unflappable, full of charm and quick-witted manoeuvres, she trips, stumbles and soars her way into our hearts. This is a seriously funny book!" - WILL FERGUSON
