What would life be like with the one who got away? For Gwen Merchant, love has always been doled out in little packets—from her father, who buried himself in work after her mother’s death, and from her husband, Peter, who’s always been respectable and safe. 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.

Editorial Reviews

“Asher brings an abundance of warmth and wisdom to this tale of lost-and-found love.” Publishers Weekly
“Balances the lighter side of life with the sadder realities. Surprising, poignant moments pave the way for a…satisfyingly happy ending.” Booklist

“A sexy rumination about love and loss, truth and lies, marriage and friendship, with a daring, propulsive plot…I ate it up.” Lisa Gabriele, author of The Almost Archer Sisters andTempting Faith DiNapoli
