The Salinger Sisters series spins the tales of four sisters who find love - in spite of them-selves. Now in Book Three, after years of trying to be "the perfect wife," Felicia is struggling, for her children's sake, to rebuild her life following a divorce. Now Felicia decides she needs a "wife" to help her juggle the demands of childcare, housework, and her fledgling career. Sensitive Brody Collins, an old classmate and "child care provider," fits the bill perfectly. But is Brody really who he seems to be? And what actually prompted him to take on the job of caring for her kids?
Author Shari MacDonald writes: "Nearly every woman I know struggles to balance dozens of competing demands on her time: kids and the carpool, finances and friendships, responsibilities and romance. Many of these women daydream of someday getting a little 'extra help.' In The Perfect Wife, single mom Felicia Salinger Kelley is about to get exactly that, and so much more..."
Shari MacDonald, though far from "perfect," is happily enjoying her new role as "wife" to photojournalist Craig Strong. The couple live in Portland, Oregon, with their "perfect mutt," Ellie. Shari is a best-selling author of several inspirational romances, including Sierra, Forget-Me-Not, Diamonds, and Stardust, as well as the first two books in the Salinger Sisters series.
