The Spin Doctor's Wife
by Theresa Miller
Megan is desperate for a baby, running hard on the IVF treadmill and heading for the edge. Meanwhile, her PR spin-doctor husband, Laurie is distracted by very different desires. Enter Carla, an ambitious young singer, who can give them both what they want—at a price.
For years, Megan was a much-loved schoolteacher, but her world falls apart after she’s unfairly dismissed. She hopes having a baby will fill the void. Instead, her discovery that Laurie has secretly fathered a child, adds insult to injury.
Finally, Megan devises a plan to take back control of her life.
How far will Megan, Laurie and Carla go to get what they want?
Set in Sydney, against a backdrop of corporate cover-ups and the cult of celebrity, The Spin Doctor’s Wife is fast-paced, heartbreaking and funny.
Now available at these stores:
“Theresa Miller combines philandering husbands and wannabe singer mistresses with the heartbreak of IVF into a page-turning, funny debut novel.”
