Shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2008.
RNA panel comment: "An excellent modern romance, sharp and witty. The characters were well defined and dialogue flowed along nicely. For me, a perfect read."
Lucy stole her friend Rose’s ‘happily ever after’ because she wanted Rose’s husband, Peter, and Lucy always gets what she wants. Big mistake. Rose was the ideal wife and is the ideal mother; Lucy was the perfect mistress.
Connie – best friend to both Lucy and Rose – is stuck in the middle. She’s got Lucy’s worries about being wife, mother and career bitch in one ear and Rose’s struggle at being a plain old single mum in the other. But Connie has her own troubles: she’s just got the hang of family life when an old flame pops up to rekindle a bit of passion … on the side.
For Rose, Lucy and Connie – young wives all – it looks like there’s a few more twists in the marriage tale still to come …
