The Pretend Wife by Bridget Asher

What would life be like with the one who got away? From the author of My Husbands Sweethearts hailed as a laugh-and-cry novel, thats whip-smart, tender, an undiluted joy to read, comes this bighearted, funny, fiercely perceptive tale 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 father, a marine biologist who buried himself in work after her mothers death; and from her husband, Peter, whos always been respectable and safe. But when an old college boyfriend, the irrepressible Elliot Hull, invites himself back into Gwens life, she starts to remember a time when love was an ocean. What does Elliot want? In fact, he has a rather surprising proposition: he wants Gwen to become his wife. His pretend wife. Just for a few days. To accompany him to his familys lake house for the weekend so that he can fulfill his dying mothers last wish. Reluctantly Gwen agrees to play along, with her husband Peters full support. Its just one weekend-- what harm could come of it? But as Gwen is drawn into Elliots quirky, wonderful family, his astonishingly wise and open mother, his warm and welcoming sister, and his adorable, precocious niece, she starts questioning everything shes ever expected from love. And as she begins to uncover a few secrets about her own family, it suddenly looks like a pretend relationship just might turn out to be the most real thing shes ever known.
