Worn Out Wife Seeks New Life: ‘Escapist summer reading at its best.' Jill Mansell Kindle Edition
‘Escapist summer reading at its best.' Jill Mansell
Tess Simpson needs a break!
No one appreciates her at home. No one appreciates her at work. And now her dog has died. She’s had enough!
Maybe what she really needs is a break from hopeless husband, Dave, the ungrateful ‘kidults’ and the lacklustre job.
River Romero needs a break!
She’s had success in the past, but screenwriting is a tough career in a tough town and her next script has got to fly or River’s dream career is over.
Everything about River’s L.A. life sounds exciting to Tess, from the condo with a pool, to the Hollywood glitz.
Everything about Tess’s English country life sounds so calming to River, from the wisteria over the front door to the peaceful bedroom.
Both women want their lives to change, but real life isn’t like the movies.
And what if getting away from it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be?
A laugh out loud emotional read, perfect for fans of Fiona Gibson, Tracy Bloom and Sophie Ranald!

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Their son, Alex, was saying everything was great in his job and he was feeling fine but was that actually true.
The lady, River, who she swops with, is a script writer with a deadline to keep.
Some parts in this book are funny, some very sad, but in all, the book was very entertaining.
Having recovered from the beginning I could not put it down it was so insightful into family dynamics. I love this book
Thank you Carmen for a fabulous unexpected read
