Kate Shaw, an acting beauty editor for a fashion magazine, has just been told that her services are no longer required. Through no fault of her own, she finds herself single, homeless and in desperate need to help her family survive its own financial and emotional crises. Known for her love of all things Jane Austen, Kate is given a freelance gig that changes everything: to research whether it is possible, in these modern times—and at a certain age—to marry well.
What starts as an article quickly turns into Kate’s real-life quest. From the polo fields of West Palm Beach to the glamour of London’s social scene, Kate chases the man of her dreams, a charming and elegant older financier. But she keeps running into a brooding Englishman who works at an impeccably Austenesque estate. Caught between Mr. Rich and maybe Mr. Right, Kate must choose what she really wants out of life: to marry for money or risk it all for love.
