Blog Tour: Million Dollar Mistake by Meg Lacey

Author: Meg Lacey
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd.
Date of Publication: October 2012

In addition to overseeing the financial affairs of the wealthy Kristoff family, Nicholas Demetrious specializes in hauling its rambunctious members out of trouble. Especially his distant cousin, Raven Rutledge.

Raven is in way over her head. She accepted the invitation to the Exeters' Adirondack house party as a refreshing change from her jet-setting lifestyle-until she learns the guest list includes his entire family. His ex-girlfriend. And the junior Exeter's intention to propose.

If ever she needed suave, sophisticated Nicholas's persuasive powers, it's now. Then he's there with a plan to get her out of this tangle: sweep her off her feet. But their pretend passion turns all too real. And what started out as a weekend of fun threatens to shatter into betrayal and heartbreak.

Million Dollar Mistake is a quick and well written read.  It kind of reminded me of a soap opera.  Four people trying to figure out what is in their hearts makes for an amusing adventure.  Out of the two couples, I like Raven and Nicholas the best.  They so obviously are suited for each other.  I didn't much care for Jackson and if I was Lorianne, I would have given up a long time before this weekend.  He really needed to grow up.   My favorite character was Nana.  She was too funny.  I always love an old woman with lots of spunk!  I will admit that the back and forth between the four did get a little tiring after a while.  But I still enjoyed the book.
