How to Kill Your Husband (and Other Handy Household Hints) – Kathy Lette

30 Sep

Synopsis – All women want to kill their husbands some of the time “Where there’s a will, I intend to be in it,” wives half-joke to each other. Marriage, it would appear, is a fun-packed frivolous hobby, only occasionally resulting in death. But when Jazz Jardine is arrested for her husband’s murder, the joke falls flat. Life should begin at 40 – not with life imprisonment for killing your spouse. Jazz, stay-at-home mum and domestic goddess; Hannah, childless career woman; and Cassie, demented working mother of two are three ordinary women. Their record collections are classical, not criminal. Cassie and Hannah set out immediately to prove their best friend’s innocence, uncovering betrayal, adultery, plot twists, thinner thighs and toy boys aplenty en route but will their friendship survive these ever darker revelations? Sexy, funny and wise, Kathy Lette’s irresistible new novel is about women not Having It All But Doing It All. It’s about how today’s mother is often a married lone parent. It’s about the fact that no woman has ever shot her husband while he was vacuuming. This is Kathy Lette at her brilliant best, casting her trade mark caustic eye on what goes on in the bedrooms and kitchens of ordinary married couples. A novel which will strike a cord with married women everywhere and ensure that, from now on, they all read the small print on their marriage licenses.

My Thoughts – Wow! What a brilliant book. This book has made me laugh out loud so many times, and thats not something that really happens with me! This book centres on three women and their husbands, who are all far from happily married. The title did make me think if this was a book i would enjoy, but it is a funny book, with a very tounge in cheek title. It is quite a short book and very enjoyable. It is chick lit, but very funny and quite true to life. i find sometimes that chick lit books can be too rosy and predictable, but this just had the right mix. A brilliant book that comes very highly recommended!

Rating 5/5
