The Foster Husband

Front Cover
Pan Macmillan UK, May 1, 2013 - Fiction - 300 pages

What if you could start your relationship again, from the beginning?

Kate left her seaside home town of Lyme Regis for the bright lights of London when she was eighteen, and never looked back. Why would she? She had it all: the glamorous career, the big townhouse, the gorgeous husband. Until her marriage failed and she found herself with nowhere else to go but home.

Now she's unemployed, separated, and holed up in her dead granny's bungalow while she works out what to do with the rest of her life. Worse, she's forced to share the bungalow with Ben, the clueless and domestically challenged fiance of her bossy sister Prue.

Ben is a man in need of simple instruction. And Kate is a woman in need of a project. Her own marriage may be beyond saving, but perhaps she can stop her sister's husband from making all of the mistakes that doomed her own relationship. Kate decides that she will secretly train Ben, her foster husband, as a selfless pre-wedding gift to her sister. Ben will be the man her own husband should have been.

But Kate may be about to learn a few of her own lessons about what makes a good marriage.
