The Foster Husband

Front Cover
Pan Macmillan, May 9, 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 media career, the gorgeous husband. Until her marriage failed and she found herself with nowhere else to go. 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 her new home with Ben, the clueless and domestically challenged fiancÚ 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. But Kate may be about to learn a few lessons of her own about what makes a good marriage. Praise for Pippa Wright ‘The bad dates are hilarious, and if you have read Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series, you'll know what we mean when we say you'll get the same sniggering-on-the-bus moments . . . Pretty brilliant’ Heat ‘Girlie, fun and well written, this will definitely make you giggle’ Closer ‘If you fancy a splash of humour with your romance then you’ll love Lizzy Harrison Loses Control’ Sunday Express
