This Charming Man

by Marian Keyes
£7.99   paperback  Penguin (2012)

This Charming Man by Marian Keyes

"Everybody remembers where they were the day they heard that Paddy de Courcy was getting married"
But for four women in particular, the big news about the charismatic politician is especially momentous . . .
Stylist Lola has every reason to be interested in who Paddy's marrying - because she's his girlfriend, yet she definitely isn't the bride-to-be . . .Journalist Grace wants the inside story on the de Courcy engagement and thinks Lola holds the key . . .while Grace's sister, Marnie, still can't forget her first love: a certain Paddy de Courcy. And what of the soon-to-be Mrs de Courcy? Alicia will do anything for her fiancé and is determined to be the perfect wife. But does she know the real Paddy?
Four very different women.
One awfully charming man.
And the dark secret that binds them all ...
Marian Keyes wrote this book to raise awareness of relationship abuse and researched it with the help of Women's Aid and survivors of domestic violence.
"When Marian was researching This Charming Man she spoke to Women’s Aid and a number of women directly affected by domestic violence. Many of the women told Marian how their abusive relationships did not begin with violence and abuse but with charm and romance. This Charming Man will resonate with so many women who have lived with domestic violence, and who have been in abusive relationships with men who are charming in public yet violent behind closed doors.”
(Nicola Harwin CBE, Chief Executive of Women’s Aid)
