If Wishes Were Husbands
When Rachel invents a husband to impress her friends, they delight in stories of his meticulous housework, gourmet cooking and amazing sex. Just a bit of harmless fun — until Darren materialises on her sofa, in the flesh! Confronted with the real life version of her fantasy man, Rachel must learn to live with perfection, or discover how to dis-invent him.
A light-hearted story of a single woman’s desire to join the ranks of the married, without living with a man who drives her mad!
Making wishes come true sounds idyllic until they go hilariously wrong — which they always do for Julie in this light-hearted, funny novel with a twist of fantasy and a smidgen of romance.
Julie’s trouble begins when she bumps into her ex-boyfriend at a friend’s fancy dress party. Her troubles double when things get romantic and she discovers the costume stuck to her body. Magically melded to her skin, it won’t come off — not for work, not for a wash, and especially not for sex!
Dressed as a fairy, Julie Nuffield (or “Nuff” to her friends) discovers everything she wishes for comes true — but never in the way she expects. As each wish provokes new disasters, she begins a quest to discover the secret history behind the costume. Only when she reveals its purpose can she find the right wish to bring her happiness. Until then, she must live as the woman they call Fairy Nuff.
From funny to thought-provoking, Lucy Shea’s humorous style examines the dilemmas of a modern single woman.
