Perfect Wives by Emma Hannigan

Perfect WivesPerfect Wives by Emma Hannigan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wasn't sure when first starting to read this book it would be a bit like 'holiday wives' all sort of LA Hollywood style.
I couldn't have been more wrong!

Jodi Ludlum is a well known actress married to a well known actor, and together they have a son named Saul.

Jodi, as a Mom wants to get Saul away from the limelight, all the lights, attraction and stage talk and let him lead a near to 'normal' life as possible so she decided to go back to Dublin where she grew up.

Now picture a beautiful cottage, country village surroundings. Beautiful, but she cannot escape her popularity and is recognised by many of the Mom's in the school playground when she enrolls her son at the school. Of course, typical to human nature most of the Moms are gasping for breathe and wanting to make a friend of her.

I won't tell you much more about the story as I want you to read it. Its a lovely story of how friendship grew between two Mom's, its also got a shocker at the end of the story.
I had a question mark all along in my head about her husband, well,when you read it, you will find out.

Its not a straight forward story at all, I think Emma Hannigan has weaved a brilliant piece of artwork there and keeps your slowly trailing along a path where clues are, but you just don't pick them up.

A valuable lesson in life is there also, I'll leave it to YOU the reader to find that out!

Thank you to Headline publishers via Net Galley for allowing me to read and review this lovely book. Thoroughly enjoyed it.




When actress Jodi Ludlum returns home to Ireland to raise her young so in the leafy South Dublin village of Bakers Valley, she's determined to shield him from the media spotlight that has dogger her throughout her glittering career. Even if coming home means leaving her husband - and waking old ghosts.

Meanwhile, Francine Hennessy, queen of the coffee mornings, was born and raised in Bakers Valley. She takes pride in juggling her children, her beautiful home and her high-powered career. But behind closed doors, Francine's life is crumbling around her.

As Jodi struggles to keep her secrets to herself, and Francine comes to terms with some life-changing news, the two become unlikely friends. When they do, they quickly discover that there's no such thing as the perfect wife, or the perfect life - but sometimes it's better to be happy than to be perfect.
