Okay, here's how it happened. I went to my college reunion and hooked up with Matt, the love of my life, my soulmate, the one who got away. After the most wonderful weekend together, he said something like, "I love you; let's get married," and I could swear I heard myself say, "Yes!" Maybe that would have been a good time to tell him about Reilly -- my husband . . .
Honestly, I'm not a bad person. Just crazy in love. And temporarily insane. Or maybe permanently selfish. The truth is that Reilly's a great guy but our marriage has been over for a while. Before you ask, it just fizzled between us. So what's a girl to do? Find him a new wife, that's what. Place an ad -- wife wanted. Easy as that. Everybody gets a happy ending . . .
. . . Or life becomes a dizzying train wreck of continual catastrophe. Finding the perfect replacement for myself isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Sorting through the weirdos, the nymphos, gold diggers, man-haters, and just plain desperate (I thought I had issues!) while balancing a husband in New York and a fiancé in L.A. is enough to make me go stark raving mad. I've got a forty-word personals ad running, an unstoppable American Express card and just a few months to find my replacement and make things all right. With a little help from my friends and a bit of luck, I just might find the next wife of Reilly . . .
