Summary
Four very different women, one awfully charming man and a dark secret that binds them all . . . Marian Keyes' This Charming Man follows women who have been caught in a web of modern love. 'Everybody remembers where they were the day they heard that Paddy de Courcy was getting married' Slick, handsome politician Paddy de Courcy is on the up. His party is set to do well in the elections and he's just announced his engagement to the beautiful Alicia. Which is news to his girlfriend, Lola, who, within hours, finds herself dumped and warned not to talk to the press. Yet journalist Grace is on the prowl. She has been after Paddy ever since he ruined her sister Marnie's life way back in college. Grace is looking for the inside story and thinks Lola holds the key. But do any of them know the real Paddy? 'So funny, so perceptive, so real. I changed my life for this book' Mail on Sunday 'The laughs come fast and furious . . . a gripping, compelling tale' Sunday Independent 'The queen of page-turners . . . brimming with her trademark down-to-earth wit' Cosmopolitan 'Gripping from the start . . . the master at her best' Daily Telegraph
Summary
Lola has every reason to be interested in who Paddy'S marrying - because although she's his girlfriend, she definitely is not the bride-to-be. Heartbroken, she flees the city for a cottage by the sea. But will Lola's retreat prove as idyllic as she hopes? Not if journalist Grace has anything to do with it. She wants the inside story on the de Courcy engagement and thinks Lola holds the key. Grace knew Paddy a long time ago. But why cant she forget him? Grace's sister, Marnie, might have the answer but she also has issues with the past. Her family is wonderful but they cannot take away memories of her first love: a certain Paddy de Courcy. What will it take for Marnie to be able to move on? And what of the future Mrs de Courcy. Alicia is determined to be the perfect politician's wife. But does she know the real Paddy de Courcy? Four very different women. One awfully charming man. And the dark secret that binds them all.
