Goodreads: Haley Cutler is the consummate trophy wife. Perhaps was is the more accurate term. Haley married Prince Charming when she was only twenty—back in the day when highlights came from an afternoon at the beach, not three hours in the salon.
Unfortunately, after seven years as Jay Cutler’s wife, a role that provided significance and what she thought was love, Jay walks out, and Haley finds herself with few life skills that translate to the real world, not to mention a sense of amnesia about who she used to be. But before Haley can find her way, she must meet with Jay’s lawyer, the strikingly handsome Hamilton Lowe. Although she can’t stand his self-righteous contempt for her divorce, she takes his suggestion to attend a group at his church called “The Trophy Wives Club,” a Bible study composed of women who have been dealt a raw deal. Haley’s never been into the whole Jesus thing but could really use some friends to walk her through this phase (how do you apply for a credit card anyway?).
As Haley begins to realize that she really can stand on her own two feet, she also learns that sometimes in losing we find the real reward . .
Ope’s Opinion: This book was a light easy read. It was not my favorite Kristin Billerbeck book. She is a good writer, this just wasn’t my favorite.
It was interesting to see how people in the church responded to Haley being divorced. It is great to have a good support group to help you go through whatever you are dealing with.
Why do we feel that Haley would not be complete until she was with another man? I would have liked to have seen her be a little more independent before someone else came into her life.
I will read the next book Back to LIfe – I hope I like it a little more then this one.
