Publisher's Summary

Jane's rule about marriage: if at first you don't succeed, don't try again.

A bigamist ex-husband, an anonymous stalker, a murder inquiry. Magazine editor Jane Hamilton is not having a good month. But with the support of her best friend, Brad Manchester, she's coping--until they become lovers and Brad complicates things even more by proposing marriage.

Brad understands Jane's fears, but he's ready for a wife and family, ready to move forward. Especially when he finds out she's pregnant with his child.

Critic Reviews

“Combining her usual superb sense of characterization with a realistically gritty plot, Quinn has created an exceptionally powerful book.” ( Booklist on Behind Closed Doors)

Unexpected twist

Would you listen to The First Wife again? Why?

I would listen to it again - because sometimes you miss key points when listening while working.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Brad - because he didnt give up or stop being a friend to the one woman he loved.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The realization that the main character realized that she had been abused and that she had buried her memories - but realized that there was more to her and life and that she needed to start living and feeling again and that it was okay to do so,

Not good at all

This story seems like it has so much potential and it never gets there! A whinny heroine and a guy that loves her. The story goes on & on and it could be done in 2 hrs!
Don't buy!
