Book Spotlight & Giveaway (US/Int): The Husband Diet by Nancy Barone

by davincikittieJuly 6, 2013

Erica Cantelli’s life feels more suffocating than a size 4 dress.

On the surface she’s maintaining the image of successful career woman, perfect wife and a doting mother with two wonderful children.

In reality she’s running out of hours in the day; 6 dress sizes bigger than she wants to be; and the only man who shows her any affection is her gay best friend.

In fact fantasizing about how to kill her increasingly disinterested husband is just about all that keeps Erica sane. That and a whole different type of fantasizing about the incredibly handsome new school Principal, Julian Foxham.

When her husband jokes about trading her for two size tens, Erica knows something has to change. But is another diet really the answer? Or is getting rid of him the fastest path to happiness? Now if she could only stop thinking about the gorgeous Mr Foxham…

For any woman who has ever felt under appreciated, or thought about giving up on their dreams, Erica is a hilarious breath of fresh air.

[quote]The Husband Diet is for fans of snarky humour, women who know what it’s like to feel under-appreciated, and those that don’t think plus size heroines only come in a size 12. With a simple honesty that is in turns both hilarious and touching, you’ll laugh and cry. Sometimes both at the same time. [/quote]

    This would be a great read to laugh about. I guess as we get older, we are having trouble with our weight, time, and relationship with our spouses (significant others). We could call it our mid-life crisis that we want to be the size when we first met our spouses since they are not paying attention to us any more. I would love to read this book and have a good laugh.
