Filthy Rich Paperback
by Wendy Holden
'A modern day Jilly Cooper' Glamour. Another fabulous novel from bestselling author WENDY HOLDEN.
For fans of MARRYING UP. When Mary meets Monty, heir to a stately pile, happiness seems assured.
But as the mansion crumbles, passion wanes along with the heating. Banker's wife Beth swaps Notting Hill for weekends at a bijou cottage.
They only offered a smidgeon over the asking price. So why don't the locals like them? Eco-harridan Morag is the terror of the village, with her objections to everyone and everything. Uber-WAG Alexandra needs a footballer's mansion and fast.
There must be a Hello!-tastic country pile with spa, champagne bar and parking for six SUVs somewhere? Ambitions clash when the village launches an allotment project and no one escapes the bitter struggle over sex, power and money which threatens to blight more than everyone's carrots.

Review by riverwillow
Slightly better than the average chick lit (how much I hate that description) as Holden gently sends up the needs and aspirations of her characters. This fitted the bill perfectly for an undemanding, funny, late night read. The characters fits their stereotypes perfectly, with the requisite one or two characters whose integrity and dignity are restored, or still intact, at the end of the book.
