Ricky’s plans are very calculated and she gets more than she bargained for when agreeing to marry Sandy for whom she is caregiver during his rehabilitation.

As she works her way into an arranged marriage Suzanne falls for an exotic looking man who is not what he seems on the outside.
Phillipa is the a widowed mother-in-law who detests her daughter-in-law every way possible since marrying her son JD “Boy” Carmel and time has not put her at ease.

How to Un-Marry a Millionaire is an enjoyable read until the eco-terrorist plot that did not align with the rest of the of the book. The semi-plot felt out of place and without it I would give a higher rating of a definite four. I recommend to readers who love chick-lit and drama novels over a lazy weekend.
