Jolie Marshall’s husband Chris is definitely horrible, bless her heart. He tricked Jolie into an “I do”--and her mother out of her father's life insurance money. Now Jolie is staying in the marriage--with a little assistance from the Future Widows’ Club, of course--while she amasses the necessary evidence to send him to prison.
But when Chris is murdered, Jolie becomes the prime suspect. And her alibi? She was at an FWC meeting, which doesn't exactly lend itself to innocence. But when old flame Jake Malone--the man Jolie ditched to marry Chris--is assigned lead detective on the case she knows she’s really in hot water. Because suddenly the new widow is thinking that a life sentence with no hope for parole--with him-- wouldn't be too bad.
TOP TEN REASONS WHY WIDOWHOOD IS PREFERABLE TO DIVORCE...
1.) Instead of losing half--half your assets and half your friends--a widow keeps it all.
2.) People offer sympathy.
3.) Those same people usually bring food.
4.) Black is slimming.
5.) Less risk of humiliation--a dead husband can’t remarry a twenty-something pilates instructor barely out of college with better breasts and a bellybutton ring.
6.) A widow is a martyr whereas a divorcee is oftentimes unfairly deemed damaged goods or viewed with suspicion.
7.) Life insurance.
8.) More life insurance.
9.) Death is permanent--no Jerry Springer-like meetings, courtroom brawls or bitter debates over who was right or wrong. (You were right, of course.)
10.)The ultimate last word…and you have it.
