The Starter Wifeby Gigi Levangi Grazer
Synopses & Reviews
Gracie always believed she and Kenny were different from other Hollywood couples. She was never supposed to be a starter wife....
When Gracie Pollock is dumped by her husband, Kenny — on her cell phone, no less — mere months before their tenth wedding anniversary, she is left completely dumbfounded. Sure, life as the wife of a semi-famous Hollywood executive often left her yawning, but she was blissfully accustomed to the luxurious and cushy lifestyle it afforded her (not to mention a fabulous designer wardrobe).
But Kenny had moved on (and younger) to a new pop tartlet girlfriend who seems to be everywhere Gracie turns. While she's seeking refuge at her best friend's Malibu mansion, one day a mysterious hunk saves her from drowning — and suddenly drowning in her sorrows seems like a waste of time. And when she finds herself smitten with Kenny's boss, one of Hollywood's better-known Lotharios, Gracie discovers that life after divorce — Hollywood-style — isn't so bad after all!
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!
