Erica Cantelli’s life feels more suffocating than a size 4 dress.
On the surface she’s maintaining the image of successful career woman, perfect wife and a doting mother with two wonderful children.
In reality she’s running out of hours in the day; 6 dress sizes bigger than she wants to be; and the only man who shows her any affection is her gay best friend.
In fact fantasizing about how to kill her increasingly disinterested husband is just about all that keeps Erica sane. That and a whole different type of fantasizing about the incredibly handsome new school Principal, Julian Foxham.
When her husband jokes about trading her for two size tens, Erica knows something has to change. But is another diet really the answer? Or is getting rid of him the fastest path to happiness? Now if she could only stop thinking about the gorgeous Mr Foxham…
For any woman who has ever felt under appreciated, or thought about giving up on their dreams, Erica is a hilarious breath of fresh air.
If you’re a fan of Jen Lancaster, Jennifer Weiner, Stella Newman, Fiona Gibson or Lucy Diamond then you’ll love Nancy Barone.
The Husband Diet will both tug on your heart-strings and make you laugh out loud – the perfect (calorie-free) recipe!
