A funny and fiercely perceptive novel about a happily married woman and the little white lie that changed everything…

For Gwen Merchant, love has always been doled out in little packets - from her widowed father and from her safe and respectable husband, Peter.

But when an old college boyfriend, the irrepressible Elliot Hull, invites himself back into Gwen's life with a surprising proposition, she suddenly starts questioning everything she's ever expected from love.

Elliot, it turns out, is in need of a pretend wife, just for the weekend, in order to fulfill his dying mother's last wish.

But as Gwen finds herself drawn into Elliot's quirky, wonderful family - and uncovers a few secrets about her own - a pretend relationship just might turn out to be the most real thing she's ever known...
