    All who cheered for Rose, the wife who was usurped by a young mistress, Minty, in Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman will undoubtedly want hear Wives Behaving Badly in order to follow the fortunes of these women and, of course, Nathan, ex husband to one and now husband to another. It's an interesting scenario Elizabeth Buchan has crafted. There are jillions of stories about the fate of mistresses but few follow a mistress who becomes a wife. At first, Minty was ecstatic at the thought of actually becoming Nathan's wife. But, for her, matrimony isn't the exact bed of roses that she had anticipated. It is now some seven years later and the joys of parenting their twin boys aren't quite as pronounced as they once were. (This feeling is exacerbated after Minty takes a sneak peek at Nathan's diary). Perhaps this is because Nathan's job is at a bit of a standstill and, after all, he does have two grown children from his first marriage, Poppy and Sam. Poppy doesn't care for her stepmother one little bit and she's not shy about showing it. On the other hand Rose has really blossomed. She's now a successful travel writer with TV appearances to her credit. Just how Minty copes with life not turning out as she had once planned is what this story is all about. Don't expect Wives Behaving Badly to deserve the subtitle Rose's Revenge because Buchan has a few surprises in store. Ably read by classically trained actress Justine Eyre, this is a fresh look at what could happen the second time around. - Gail Cooke
