IN HOLLYWOOD, THEY LIKE TO LOVE 'EM AND LEAVE 'EM.

The Starter Wife

A scathingly funny novel from the bestselling author of Maneater.

When her husband, Kenny, dumps her by cell phone (!) mere months before their ten-year wedding anniversary, Gracie Pollock is dazed and confused. Though life as the wife of a semi-famous Hollywood studio executive often left her yawning, Gracie always believed she and Kenny were different from other Hollywood couples. She never thought she'd be a starter wife.

But Kenny has upgraded, and with images of his new pop tartlet girlfriend everywhere Gracie turns, she seeks refuge at her best friend's Malibu mansion. Then a mysterious hunk saves her from drowning and suddenly drowning in her sorrows seems like a waste of time. And when she takes up with Kenny's boss, one of Hollywood's better-known Lotharios, she discovers that maybe life after divorce -- Hollywood-style -- isn't so bad after all!

I decided to pick up a book from Chapters while at the cottage a couple weeks ago and I picked this one up because it was all over the store (yes I guess their promoting worked on me.) Turns out the book is fabulous (and hilarious.) It is about a 40 year old divorcee who was married to a big time hollywood producer and her life as the divorce unfolds. It is both a comedy and a story of love (all different types of love) and I would highly recommend it for relaxing, cottaging, commuting or just a fun read. This book will definitely keep you entertained!
