With a plot that would rival Shakespeare, Married To Maggie hinges on secret schemes, double crosses, an arch-villain and nothing being as it seems. When Maggie Gray loses her job as a nurse, she is tempted into accepting an offer from billionaire oil tycoon Loy Vincent, to marry his grandson Ty. In a quirky twist of fate, Ty also hires Maggie to pose as his wife, in order to get his grandfather off his case. The novel takes place over the seven days from Maggie and Ty’s meeting to their wedding day and what a seven days it is.
The heart of the story is Maggie Gray herself, who is a terrific combination of vulnerability and grit. A dedicated cardiac nurse in her late twenties, she has a full life; helping at shelters for the homeless and dogs as well as belly dancing and socialising with her best friend Nancy. She’s not a woman to be pushed around and has no problem in standing up to the ferocious Loy Vincent and Ty’s snobby friends but at heart she is kind and caring. It doesn’t take long for her to regret becoming embroiled in the madcap scheme as her feelings for Ty are genuine and real.
Ty is also a likeable character, a man trying to live up to the reputation of his imposing lineage whilst making his own mark. There are lots of other engaging characters, most notably Ty’s mother Ellen and my own personal favourite, the paparazzi photographer Chaz Rosston. Romes’ skill as a writer is evident in her ability to bring her characters to life which makes her readers believe in them and care about them.Read more ›
The characters – Ty is the perfect hero: attractive but endearingly flawed. I loved his vulnerability as he grieves his father’s death. And Maggie is just brilliant: so strong, but also a big softie beneath it all – very easy to identify with.
The plot – I loved the double dealing; such a refreshingly new idea on which to base a love story! The story has plenty of depth to it, and lots of action. Jan is expert at knitting together all the threads to make for a really interesting, engaging read.
The realism – I really believed in the story and the characters. Poor Maggie, what a pickle she gets in simply because she cares for people so!
The passion – oh, such passion! Wonderful chemistry.
The wit and appealing tone in the writing – it’s a pleasure to read. I especially love the dialogue – I felt I was there in the scene, listening to real people talk.
The compelling pace – I found the book to be a real page-turner.
The ending – which of course I won’t share here; suffice it to say that it left me closing the book with a light heart and a wide smile.
In sum, a really great romance novel I’d recommend heartily. Heartwarming and mood-boosting: the literary equivalent of coffee and a muffin with a good friend.
I thought the book was well-written, with well-drawn characters. I particularly liked the way Ms Romes developed the emotions in the main characters from their first meeting where nothing much is going on between them to the gradual awareness of both of them as their feelings begin to develop. The Dallas elite circle was well described too.
I loved the book. It was entertaining and I think it deserves every one of five stars.
Jan's writing is crisp, original and feels fresh. Her descriptions and dialogue are those of a talented writer. 'Razor sharp anguish spliced across his chest.' 'She blew past the stop signs.' 'The air was charged with ions of unease.'
While the outcome wasn't entirely a surprise it was satisfying.
