USA Today Bestselling Author Bethany Lopez brings you an all-new trilogy about getting a second chance at love. Follow Whitney, Summer, and Margo as they experience the good, bad, and ugly of dating again in your thirties and forties. Join them in The Jilted Wives Club.

When life gives you lemons, make a Lemontini...

Divorced and jobless at forty-something, Whitney never thought she’d be starting over. But here she is. Single and (not so) ready to mingle - with anyone except him.

Luca leads a charmed life. He's got the perfect job, the support of a big Italian family, and a bevy of women eager to grant his mother’s wish for grandchildren… except the woman he really wants.

Now that Whitney’s Starter Wife days are over, Luca is determined to convince her to give him a shot.

Too bad the only shot Whitney’s sure of right now is the Lemontini.

  • More, please

    I think I loved everything about this book. I loved that Whitney was a single mom. I loved that she took on the workforce after being away for so long. I loved the little Jilted Wives club. I loved that Luca was not only younger, but that he went after Whitney. I loved his big, crazy family dinners. I loved that Luca was a very sweet guy and that the two were a slow burn. I love that I can't wait to read about Summer and watch them get their own HEA.
  • Great beginning

    By Laura__F
    What an amazing beginning to this series! I really needed something low angst and this fit the bill completely. I loved how these ladies just clicked and forged a wonderful friendship. Whitney and Luca shouldn’t work but they 100% did. I can’t wait to read book 2!
  • Lovely, wonderful with a little spice thrown in

    This is book 1 in the jilted wives club series. This book is about Whitney’s story and her HEA. It was a lovely story with wonderful friendships. A beautiful family dynamic, with a little spice thrown in. I loved this book cover, can’t wait to see the others and see where these stories take me.
