e've been told that money can't buy happiness, but not everyone believes this aphorism. Even the most successful people who seem to have everything their hearts desire may not be happy or contented.
n this new novel by Dorothea Benton Frank, you'll meet a couple, Olivia Ritchie and her husband Nicholas Seymour, who spend a tumultuous summer sojourn seeing how money may not solve all problems.
liva, an interior designer, and Nick are contemplating a move from New York City to Charleston, South Carolina, where Nick was raised. With dwindling financial resources, this might not be a sterling idea, but Olivia has kept mum about the couple's diminished bank account which could hinder a comfortable retirement.
layed off against this situation is the trip the couple embarks upon with Olivia's billionaire clients and their friends. To say this will be a memorable couple of months will be an understatement, but it will hammer home the idea that there's more to true happiness than possessing a fat bank account.
rom Sullivans Island, Necker Island and Nantucket to the shores of Southern Spain, this will be an amusing excursion and one the reader will savor from start to finish.
