Busy Woman Seeks Wife by Annie Sanders

September 2nd, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I give this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars

Description from GoodReads: To a casual observer, Londoner Alex Hill is every inch the calm and collected executive of a global sportswear company. In reality, she’s constantly frantic, with barely enough time to take out the trash. When her demanding mother, a 1960s style icon, has a bad fall and has to move in with her indefinitely, Alex realizes she needs someone more committed than a maid-what she needs is a wife. An ad in the local paper soon produces a young woman who seems both enthusiastic and capable. But something odd is definitely happening behind the scenes of Alex’s new, perfectly ordered existence. Someone distinctly male is charming her mother as well as doing all the ironing. He’s no one Alex would ordinarily ever notice, never mind date. But now she can’t help wondering if her new “wife” could perhaps have husband potential…

I had to pick up this book based on the title.  Between work, commuting, reading, blogging and my daughter I would love to have a “wife” to help with dinner, cleaning, etc.  I did guess what was going to happen about halfway through but it was still a fun read.  Frankie was a great character that you can’t help love.  His sister, Ella, was a pain in the butt and I might have missed how old she was but sometimes I felt like telling her to get with the program.   Alex’s character was ok, she didn’t really grab me nor did I dislike her.  Some of her actions made me scratch my head like why she would stay with her boyfriend who was obviously a jerk and I thought she blew things way out of proportion with the Bean, Saff and Frankie.  Like I said you can pretty much guess what is going to happen with Alex, who the saboteur is and what Saff will end up doing.  Still if you are looking for a light and funny read this is one to pick up.
