Victoria Cooke's latest novel, Who Needs Men Anyway?, advises: don't get mad, get even. The synopsis says: "Thirty-something Charlotte's Emsworth's life is a sickeningly perfect round of charity events, hot yoga, and romantic gestures for sexy lawyer husband James. But, patiently waiting to get pregnant, Charlotte is bored. And when she's bored, she has a tendency to meddle...
First, it's her personal trainer Megan's cheating fiance, then the gardener Sam's wife's 'late nights at the office'. But soon the meddling, however well-intentioned, lands Charlotte in way over her head, and all the time spent managing other people's lives makes her blind to the cracks appearing in her own.
Getting even is one thing, but what about getting happy?" Who Needs Men Anyway? is out in April 2018.
