American readers fell in love with Elizabeth Buchan?s Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman. Now, with the delicious sequel to that beloved New York Times bestseller, Elizabeth Buchan answers the intriguing question: What happens when the mistress becomes the wife?
Minty Lloyd has what she always wanted, her prized Nathan and twin boys, but she is haunted by the glamorous new life of her predecessor, Rose. Then an unforeseen event forces the rivals to renegotiate their relationship. With Buchan?s signature talents, Wives Behaving Badly is a delightful novel that reaffirms its author as our wisest and warmest revealer of women?s intimate lives.
Get ready to cheer for Rose Lloyd, a woman of young middle-age who proves that starting over doesn’t have an age limit. After twenty-five years spent juggling husband, career, and kids with admirable success, Rose suddenly finds both her marriage and her career in unexpected ruin. Forced to begin a new life, she is at first terrified, then energized, by her newfound freedom—it’s amazing what prolonged reflection, a little weight loss, a new slant on independence, and some Parisian lingerie will do for the psyche! Witty, insightful, and emotionally resonant, Buchan’s novel will strike a chord with anyone who has ever wondered what Middle Age would look like from the other side of the looking glass (answer: much better than you could ever expect).
