The Trophy Wife

By John King

New adult fiction, General fiction, Thriller, Romance | Paperback, eBook


To his friends, Matt and Gaby, Jeff had it all: a multi-million dollar business, a swank upper east-side apartment, and a beautiful stunning young wife, Erica. But things were not as they seemed. When Jeff returned from a month in France without his wife, could they believe the heartbreaking story he told? Had Erica really left him for another man, a French film producer, after only one day of sailing on the man's yacht? Was she that flighty and unfaithful? When Gaby hears news from her sister in Marseilles, she starts to wonder if something more sinister has happened. The Trophy Wife is one of three novellas where John King explores love both lost and found. Also included is The Last Word, where a young couple's miscommunication leads to an unwanted breakup and acts of sexual violence. And Roxanne, where the neglected husband of a workaholic lawyer searches for love and finds it in a mysterious young Latina, but the consequences are both unexpected and violent. These three novellas each contain tragic elements: some simply of lost love, others as great as murder, and all with unpredictable and surprising endings. The Trophy Wife was formerly published as Hat Trick 3 Novellas.
