The Pretend Wife (2009)

Gwen Merchant is married to a respectable doctor and living the life she always thought she wanted. When an old college boyfriend, Elliot Hull, randomly enters her life, he issues her a proposition. He wants Gwen to pretend to be his wife for a long weekend so he can grant his dying mother her last wish of seeing him married. Gwen agrees to the proposition with her husband's support. As Gwen is pulled into Elliot's life, she begins to question if she is married to the wrong man. This is a beautifully written love story that quickly became one of my favourite books. (AO)
