Trying to juggle work, the loss of her cleaner and her mother moving in after a fall, Alex decides to take up her friend’s suggestion that she needs a “wife” to take care of everything at home. However, what seems like the perfect solution just might turn out to be a complete nightmare with divorce on the cards very soon. Once again Annie Sanders brings us fun and warm characters to sympathise, empathise and generally amuse ourselves with.

If you like Annie Sanders you might also like to read books by Milly Johnson, Carmen Reid and Lou Wakefield.

Synopsis

Busy Woman Seeks Wife by Annie Sanders

'What you need,' said Saffron, pouring Alex another glass of wine, 'is someone to take away your worries, someone you can rely on, someone to deal with all the boring details.'
'But I've got a bloke already,' protested Alex.

'No, no!' replied Saffron. 'I mean, what you need is a WIFE.'

On the surface Alex Hill is every inch the polished high-flying career woman. But that just means she's rushed off her feet with barely enough time to take out the bins, let alone pull together an amazing product launch. Then she discovers her Spanish cleaner has been using her flat to turn tricks in the afternoons, and in her bed! And to top things off, her demanding mother - an ageing 60s style icon - has a bad fall, requiring her to move in with Alex indefinitely. With so much to juggle, Alex begins to realise that she needs someone more committed than a cleaner - so she advertises for 'a wife'.

Enter Ella - a brilliant cook and carer. But Ella isn't quite what she appears, and pretty soon Alex is contemplating 'divorce'…
