'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 marketing executive of a global sportswear company. But things are not quite as they appear - 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 - what she needs is a 'wife'. An advertisement is placed in the local paper and it isn't long before Alex believes she has found the perfect person. Ella comes across as enthusiastic and terrifically capable - a brilliant cook, and carer. But Ella isn't quite what she appears, and pretty soon Alex is contemplating 'divorce'...show more
