School of FortuneBook - 2007
A fun, fresh frolic of a novel starring a spoiled but lovable Texas heiress out to reclaim her fortune
Pippa Walker's wedding was to be huge-- Texas huge--complete with twelve bridesmaids under contract from Pippa's mother to stay lean and long-haired, gondolas flown in from Venice, A- and B- guest lists. But when Pippa finds out her handsome husband-to-be isn't what she thought, she bolts from her own wedding, shocking society and getting herself disinherited. The only way she can get a piece of the family fortune back is to earn a degree from a school. Any school. It's a tough assignment for a girl who dropped out of SMU after pledging Kappa Kappa Gamma and shopping at Neiman's for a year.
But Pippa is nothing if not up for a challenge. Attracting one hilarious misadventure after another, she tries to earn her sheepskin at: driving school, matchmaking school, even a circus academy. It's only when she hits rock-bottom--The Mountbatten Savoy School of Household Management--that things begin to look up. But can she really be falling in love with a...valet?
