About the Book

After years of being ignored in her marriage, Luisa has fallen for Jarvis. She comes up with a plan to find a new wife for her husband Luke so she can exit her stagnant marriage while keeping everyone happy.

It's been no easy task, but she has finally connected Luke with a suitable replacement wife and stepmother for eight-year-old Max, and the new relationship is taking off.

What Luisa's careful plan hasn't taken into account is the renewed spark of emotion when she sees Luke at his best again, rising up out of his slump to show another woman the care and attention he hasn't shown Luisa for years. She starts to remember what it was about Luke that she originally fell in love with ... but is it too late?

'This is more than a simple romantic comedy -- Wiseman aims for something much truer and deeply honest about modern marriages' Kate Braithwaite, author

'I know far too many Luisas and Lukes, making this all the more painfully real' Raven Haired Girl

'A serious, sobering and thought-provoking story ... a painfully real read with flawed characters and plenty of heartbreak' Bookaholic Confessions
