"An Ideal Wife" by Gemma Townley
Is it possible for a woman to be the Ideal Wife? Jessica Wild-Wainwright is about to find out.
The third instalment of Gemma Townley's hilarious Jessica Wild series is An Ideal Wife, following up The Importance of Getting Married and A Wild Affair. Jessica is married to her wonderful husband Max and everything is perfect. Except for one thing: she never confessed that she kissed Max's rival right before their wedding. Jessica decides that the best way to make up for this is to become doting, devoted and domestic - everything she thinks Max wants and a lot of what she lacks.
Unfortunately, as usually happens to Jessica, things don't go as planned. Before she knows it Max is in the hospital with a broken leg and a sexy nurse to care for him, Jessica is running Max's company just as they undergoing an "ethical audit", there is a mystery man in her soon-to-be-married mother's life, her semiretired Russian stripper friend has asked her to hide a mysterious trunk and there are two men in sunglasses and a Black Hummer following her around. Can Jessica continue to be the Ideal Wife with all of this on her plate?
An Ideal Wife is an easy and fun to read novel. Jessica Wild is a great character who is funny and realistic in the most wild and entertaining situations. Even though the book is the third in a series, it does stand alone. You do not need to read the first two books as Townley does a good job of catching the reader up without spending too much time on the past. However, if you are a fan of chick lit I recommend reading the entire series as you won't be disappointed.
