USA Today Bestselling Author Bethany Lopez brings you an all-new trilogy about getting a second chance at love. Follow Whitney, Summer, and Margo as they experience the good, bad, and ugly of dating again in your thirties and forties. Join them in The Jilted Wives Club.
When life gives you lemons, make a Lemontini…
Divorced and jobless at forty-something, Whitney never thought she’d be starting over. But here she is. Single and (not so) ready to mingle – with anyone except him.
Luca leads a charmed life. He’s got the perfect job, the support of a big Italian family, and a bevy of women eager to grant his mother’s wish for grandchildren… except the woman he really wants.
Now that Whitney’s Starter Wife days are over, Luca is determined to convince her to give him a shot.
Too bad the only shot Whitney’s sure of right now is the Lemontini.

Fly Girl’s Review
Well guys I’m sad to say the cover and blurb did not live up to my expectations. I picked it because the blurb sounded great and the cover that came after was awesome. I envisioned myself reading and having to hold the laughter in to keep from waking my husband. No such thing happened. What went wrong?
What did go right was the story. It was a cute (meet cute even) story about a recent divorcee and a younger man. The Jilted Wives Club started as three divorcee’s who needed help getting back into the world and the support of others to prop them up when they were too tired or reserved on their own. Although the three didn’t know each other from “eve” they instantly formed a bond of friendship and by the end love, for one another. So the plot and the story were great, so what was still wrong?
The characters were fun and genuine, but awfully lacking in sparkle. I’m not sure how to say it, but although they were accurate, developed, and genuine there was something lacking for me. I’m not sure if the comedy wasn’t over the top enough, or the personalities weren’t sparkly enough but somehow the book just didn’t do it for me. I wasn’t “wowed”…and that is what was wrong for me. So I’m giving this a 3.5 of 5 because perhaps it was me and you may find the book just the bestest.
