Megan is desperate for a baby, running hard on the IVF treadmill and heading for the edge. Meanwhile, her PR spin-doctor husband, Laurie is distracted by very different desires. Enter Carla, an ambitious young singer, who can give them both what they want-at a price.

For years, Megan was a much-loved schoolteacher, but her world falls apart after she's unfairly dismissed. She hopes having a baby will fill the void. Instead, her discovery that Laurie has secretly fathered a child, adds insult to injury. Finally, Megan devises a plan to take back control of her life.

How far will Megan, Laurie and Carla go to get what they want?

Set in Sydney against a backdrop of corporate cover-ups and the cult of celebrity, The Spin Doctor's Wife is fast-paced, heartbreaking and funny.

"Theresa Miller perfectly captures her characters with empathy and insight. If you enjoyed Allison Pearson's, I Don't Know How She Does It, you'll love The Spin Doctor's Wife."

- Petronella McGovern, bestselling author of Six Minutes
