When Nola Devlin is turned down for her dream job because she's overweight, she decides to become thin-or, at least, pretend to be. The alter ego she creates-the thin, British, hip, and did we mention thin Belinda Apple-is a smashing success who is offered movie proposals, national television appearances and even dates...though no one's met her in person, of course.
Then Nola takes Belinda a bit too far, and is forced to join "The Cinderella Pact" and drop the pounds. As the weight comes off, however, Nola's problems begin to mount.

Praise for The Secret Lives of Fortunate Wives:
"The mordantly observant Strohmeyer skewers the lifestyles of the rich and fatuous with spot-on irony, painting her pretentious socialites with broad, sarcastic strokes in an uproarious, upscale, tongue-in-cheek tour de force."
Sarah Strohmeyer has worked as a journalist for numerous publications, including Boston Globe, Cleveland Plain Dealer, and Salon.com. She lives with her husband and two children outside Montpelier, Vermont. Author website: sarahstrohmeyer.com and blog: lipstickchronicles.typepad.com.
