The Marriage Caper by Sandra Edwards - Review

The Marriage Caper

Title: The Marriage Caper

Synopsis: Andre de Laurent is the second son of an extremely wealthy family, which basically means he’ll always be number two. That is, until his mother’s uncle dies and leaves him a multi-billion-dollar fortune. So what’s the trouble? Andre has sixty days to take a wife, and he’ll have to remain married for one year or forfeit the inheritance to distant relatives—who are hell-bent on claiming the inheritance as their own. Aspiring actress Tasha Gordon has never wanted anything quite so much as that big break—until she met Andre de Laurent. Could his offer turn out to be the role of lifetime? 

My Thoughts: I loved The Marriage Bargain so much, and I was dying to know what would happen with Andre and Tasha. So I jumped at the chance to review The Marriage Caper. Sandra Edwards definitely did not disappoint. A handsome de Laurent and a woman who can stand her ground made this book perfect for me. It may have even out done The Marriage Bargain.

Andre was fun in the first book. I loved his character. In The Marriage Caper readers get to see a much bigger picture of him. He has insecurities, he's funny, and he is very honorable. Tasha entertained me in the first book, too, although her part was small. I loved her in this book. She has remarkable strength. The things she goes through are not easy, but she holds her head up and does what she thinks is right. 

This book has a slightly similar premise as the first book. They get married, each for their own reasons, but also because they love each other. Of course secrets, family drama, and tragedy ensue. Edwards really took me on a roller coaster with these two characters. I was constantly wanting to know what happened next, and I stayed up late just to finish reading the whole book. Well worth my sleepiness the next day. Awesome job Sandra Edwards! I hope I'll be reading Lecie's story one day, too.

About Lola

Lola JamesLola James has been reading romance novels since her teens, and fell in love with the paranormal after discovering Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. Her love of the dark worlds of vampires and witches, as well as her fascination with Greek mythology led her to create the Spellbound Series, an ongoing Paranormal Romance combining all of the above into tales of suspense with a little bit of humor in an Urban Fantasy setting. A long time lover of reading and writing with a passion for a great story, James became discouraged by the complicated and arbitrary publishing process, James had initially set down her laptop and her hopes of being a writer. However, with the purchase of her first e-reader, James became re-energized by the new possibilities for an undiscovered author to reach the masses. Dusting off her keyboard she finally finished Bound to Remember, the first book of the Spellbound Series and self-published it. Energized and ambitious, James is now hard at work on both the Spellbound Series as well as the Fate Series, a paranormal romance about dreams and what happens if they come true.

About Author Liz Schulte

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue.

As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more. When Liz isn't writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between.
