Publisher's Summary

Lola has every reason to be interested in who Paddy de Courcy is marrying - because although she's his girlfriend, she definitely isn't the bride. Heartbroken, she flees the city for a cottage by the sea. But will her retreat prove as idyllic as she hopes? Not if journalist Grace has anything to do with it. Grace knew Paddy a long time ago. But why can't she forget him? Grace's sister, Marnie, might have the answer but she also has issues with the past. Her family is wonderful but they can't take away memories of her first love: a certain Paddy de Courcy. What will it take for Marnie to be able to move on?
And what of the future Mrs de Courcy? Alicia is determined to be the perfect politician's wife. But does she know the real Paddy de Courcy?
Four very different women. One awfully charming man. And the dark secret that binds them all...

Amazing, thoroughly brilliant.

Absolutely amazing stuff. I could hardly believe how much I enjoyed this book. The narration was lively and enjoyable (adorable accents) and the story itself was brilliant. I really do enjoy Marian Keyes' portrayal of strong, smart and yet flawed women. I think that much of her brilliance lies in her ability to pull her reader in with humour, and then deliver her sucker punch. I also liked that it was a big fat long unabridged book - totally creditworthy! :)

I love Caroline's delivery - she brings the quirkiness to light and is able to really bring the characters to life.

This Charming Man

This is a brilliant book . Marian Keyes has incredible talent , her character descriptions are so detailed that for a long time after you finish reading the book you find yourself thinking of the people in her story , she makes them very real. The story keeps you guessing , very unpredictable , funny and worth while listening to.

Keyes at her best!

I'm an avid Keyes fan, and this book, in my opinion is one of her best! It's well narrated, and laugh out loud funny, but also has a 'keep you guessing' element. If you like Marion Keyes, then don't hesitate in getting this download!

No prepositions!!

This book has some of the most annoying writing ever!!! A third of the book doesn't use prepositions which is like listening to someone read a grocery list. I persevered because it was rated so high but the author really needs a rap over the knuckles for using such poor skills. Other than that third it's not too bad.
