After a slip up too far, Mark enrols himself in the "School for Husbands" in a bid to prove to his wife Sophie that he is willing to make the effort to keep their family together. While he attempts to shape up in the spousal stakes, a very eligible millionaire starts to pursue Sophie. Another great read from Wendy Holden.

The School for Husbands by Wendy Holden

Catherine King seems to have a perfect marriage. She, her successful author husband Alexander and their daughter live in an enormous house full of precious antiques. But as Alex`s bestselling star rises, his besthusband status is sliding out of the chart.

Catherine feels neglected. Alex forgot her birthday, she`s almost invisible at his launch party and when he doesn`t come home one night, she makes a rash decision. She calls divorce lawyer Septimus Steele. Upset and paranoid, she merely wants to assess her legal position. But slimy Septimus is very convincing and Catherine finds herself persuaded that the cracks in her marriage are irreparable.

For Alex, the shock of separation is immense. So when he sees an advert for a residential course, tailor-made to tackle his husbandly ineptitude, he goes for it. The lessons he will learn at the School for Husbands will be unlike any class he`s taken before. But will they be enough to win his family back?
