It's Ex-Wives versus Next Wives in this latest novel from bestselling author Jane Moore--a sexy tale of modern (re)marriage, packed with razor-sharp wit and high-stakes drama.
It's Alison's wedding and she and her groom, Luca, have just exchanged vows and are preparing to cap off their perfect day at the reception. But before the champagne even hits the crystal stemware, Luca's first wife storms in and makes it clear that she intends to remain very much a part of his life. When the fuss has died down, Alison finds an ally in Fiona, who confides that a few women she knows have recently started something called the Second Wives Club--a group of female friends who get together to bitch and gossip about the drama that inevitably unfolds when you marry someone else's husband.
The club's founding members include Julia, a stunning self-proclaimed trophy wife whose husband insists on remaining uncomfortably close to his former spouse; Susan, whose live-in boyfriend is the classic widower who can't let go of his beloved ex's memory; and, of course, Fiona, whose cross to bear is the teenage stepson from hell and an ex who's bent on sabotaging her relationship. Fortunately, the Club gives them a place to vent, and together they contend with malicious rumors, scheming divorce lawyers, and ex-wives intent on revenge--until they decide that it's time to stop settling for second best . . . and then the fun really begins.
Told with Moore's signature wit, wisdom, and sass, "The Second Wives Club" proves that second wives can be every bit as winning as the girl next door--and offers a dishy, unputdownable look at the modern marital love triangle.
