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.
I received an e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
