From the Back Cover
'Don't you dare be happy, you bastard.
That's what I thought when I heard. Don't you dare be happy'
Slick, handsome politician Paddy de Courcy is on the up. His party is set do well in the elections and he's just announced his engagement to the beautiful Alicia. Which is news to his girlfriend, Lola, who, within hours, finds herself dumped and warned not to talk to the press.
Yet journalist Grace is on the prowl. She has been after Paddy ever since he ruined her sister Marnie's life way back in college. Grace is looking for the inside story and thinks Lola holds the key.
But do any of them know the real Paddy?
Four very different women.
One awfully charming man.
And the dark secret that binds them all . . .

My favourite character was Lola and laughed out loud several times when she was rattling round Knockavoy. I simply could not stop reading it and got very irritated when my life intervened.
So, for me, the best Marian Keyes yet.
This Charming Man deals with some very serious issues and deals with them well in my opinion. The tension builds up and even if you've worked out what's going on some of the scenes are still shocking. I felt that maybe the ending was a bit too trite and it leaves some important loose ends hanging - ready for another book perhaps?
I found the characters convincing apart from Damian who was just a bit too good to be true. I would love to see more of Dee Rossini who seemed like an interesting person, as was Lola in fact in spite of the style in which her sections were written.
I'm not a particular MK fan though I really enjoyed `The Other Side of the Story'. `This Charming Man' is every bit as good as that and I recommend it as an example of chick lit with a bite.
