The Desperate Wife’s Survival Plan

The Desperate Wife’s Survival Plan


From riches to rags...

Charley Summers doesn't have a care in the world. She lives in the lap of luxury, supported by her rich husband and surrounded by a loyal group of friends.

Until the business goes bust and her world collapses. Before long the bailiffs have taken everything, and as if things weren't bad enough, she catches her husband with another woman. Suddenly, Charley needs a job, any job, so she can start repaying some of the money her husband squandered.

But with nowhere to live and no recognisable skills, how on earth is she to do that?

Charley needs a survival plan fast!


  • This is a brilliant novel about discovering your passions and believing in yourself. A powerful tale of friendship, ice-cream and more ice-cream. Alison Sherlock has made me want to read her previous book, The Desperate Bride's Diet Club and her future novels because no matter what happens, I know she'd have a soft spot for her characters and you can always count on Alison to brighten your day! I loved it. It made me laugh, swoon and fall in love with the hero!
