With her fortieth birthday looming, Lisa Doyle starts to wonder where things went wrong. Everyone else from school is married with kids – or wallowing in the waters of a messy divorce. What not her?
Tired of being the odd one out, Lisa invents a husband. And not just any husband … an astronaut in training who saves lives. Everyone lies online, right?
If only one-time best friend Helen could have announced her wedding sooner. And not begged Lisa to be matron of honour … and organise the hen night … for all those paired-off people from her past dying to meet her new husband.
Does she brazen it out, or come clean?
The scene is set for a year in the life of the armchair bride.
