9780006496748: The Switch

From the bestselling author of The First Wives Club and Bestseller, a witty social satire of love, marriage, and the games men and women play with each other.

Sylvie knows she has a lot to be thankful for. So what if her husband, Bob, is only interested in what she has to say ‘in four words or less’? The kids are off to college, and she is sure her marriage is about to bloom again. In fact it has already, but not with her. When Sylvie confronts Bob’s mistress, she is amazed: except for a gap of ten years and fifteen pounds, Marla could be Sylvie’s twin. But while Sylvie wants passion and romance, Marla just wants a husband of her own.

And so their scheme is hatched: a nip and tuck and some blonde highlights for Sylvie, some brown hair and a few extra pounds for Marla, and the women are ready to switch places. The result as they juggle their new lives and identities is hilarious and enlightening. But just how long can they keep their charade going, and will it all end in tears?

Review:

‘A bubbly, fizzy story’
Mail on Sunday

‘Fizzing with acerbic dialogue and high-level sexual slapstick, this is a very funny romantic comedy, offering plenty of catharsis for women at both ends of the marital spectrum, and very little comfort for the husbands in between’
Good Housekeeping

From the Back Cover:

HOW DOES A CLEVER WIFE GET HER CHEATING HUSBAND BACK? SHE BECOMES HIS MISTRESS.

Now that the kids are off to college, Sylvie hopes that her marriage is about to bloom again. Until she discovers that her husband, Bob, has a mistress called Marla. It’s small consolation that the other woman could be her identical twin – except for a gap of ten years and fifteen pounds.

Sylvie soon realises that Marla is as miserable as she is . While Sylvie wants passion and romance, Marla just wants a husband of her own.

Together they hatch a plan: a nip and tuck and a few blonde highlights for Sylvie, some brown hair and a few extra pounds for Marla, and the women are ready to switch places.

The outcome as they juggle their new lives and identities is hilarious and enlightening. But just how long can they keep their charade going, and will it all end in tears?

“Full of wisecracks … Olivia Goldsmith can keep you reading”
