Review of Busy Woman Seeks Wife by Annie Sanders
Reviewed by Fiza Pathan


Meg Sanders and Annie Ashworth are the writing duo of this book which I have recently read. The first thing that made me grab the book, and place it in my library cloth bag, was definitely the title, Busy Woman Seeks Wife! As I read the synopsis and the reviews of the book, I was already immersed in the lives of Alex, The Bean, Frankie, Saff, Ella, and the rest of the wonderful cast of characters which makes this chick lit book, perfect reading material. If anyone wants a light but funny read, and is going on a vacation, this book should be a great reading companion either when you are on the beach sunbathing or in a hammock whiling away your time. It is a relaxing read, which can be finished in no time at all. In spite of my busy schedule I still finished it in three days. This is because of the wonderful way the chapters are spaced out in the story. This book is more like Katie FForde’s books than Marion Keyes, but with the character ‘The Bean’ in this book, laughter and smiles galore will come your way. For all those girls who are independent, and those working in offices, this is a light read for you, but still in a way, an enlightening read. For stay at home mothers this book is something that you should read, to see the world through the eyes of both, a working independent woman, and a home bound wife. The character of Frankie is something that I have not seen in most chick lit books that I have read over the years, and you should read about him, as he is just amazing and a nonconventional hero. I know I have said this before, but I repeat, please – please – please do not miss ‘The Bean’ — she is superb and yet can make you emotional at certain parts of the story. As for me, the story of the workaholic Alex, who is looking for someone who could do housework, laundry, and shopping for her, is something which even I seek for, more than a husband, which shows how our society and how the gender spectrum is changing, not only in the real world, but in chick lit as well. For you to know how Alex manages to find her ‘wife’ and how a man she doesn’t know from Adams, starts doing her dirty laundry, you’ll have to read the book. There is a bit of a mystery too in the book, which is fun to solve. Enjoy yourself, in a good, neatly edited, and funny chick lit book. Great job Annie and Sanders, for a book, well written and very enjoyable.
