Overview

A delightful new romantic comedy from an author who "never disappoints."* (New York Times bestselling author MaryJanice Davidson)

She was the perfect party-planning, haute-to-the max trophy wife. Now Maxine Cambridge is broke, unemployable and living with her mother and teenage son in a retirement village, with her self-esteem kicked to the curb.

Until her geeky former classmate Campbell Barker returns, all grown-up- and off-the-scale smokin' hot. Campbell refuses to believe Max isn't that smart, funny girl he's crushed on since high school. The more Max tries to show him he's wrong, the more she rediscovers her long-retired mojo. Now, she's ready to throw down some payback on her ex-life and fight for what she deserves...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Launching the Ex Trophy Wives series, Cassidy aims for slapstick comedy but misses the mark. After Maxine Cambridge's husband trades her in for a younger model, Maxine is reduced to working at a fast-food restaurant. Even worse, she and her son are stuck living with her mother in a senior citizens' retirement village. Enter Campbell Barker, a former high school classmate of Maxine's who's morphed from geeky to sexy. Campbell remembers the sassy prom queen that Maxine used to be and urges her to stand up to her soon-to-be ex-husband. Even though Maxine has sworn off men, she finds herself attracted to Campbell. Straddling the line between romance and women's fiction, Maxine's journey to empowerment is meant to get readers cheering, but her irritating antics and constant overreactions make it hard, as do the abundant clichés. (Dec.)
