Welcome to the Future Widows' Club--a secret society of women who've been treated like garbage by their horrible husbands and would rather wait for widowhood than endure a divorce. But sometimes waiting can be murder...
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

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.

10.)The ultimate last word...and you have it.
