But ultimately, no matter the path, no matter the destination. After reading the plot of The Replacement Wife by Eileen Goudge, I felt as if I found a book that fit the bill. It is a choice that you make. There were conversations that Camille would have or Elise would have with people that just went on and on about the other person's life. What neither of them expect is that he, instead of she, may find the perfect match for him and it may be the thing that tears them apart, rather than bringing them together when they need it the most. She lives on the Mornington Peninsula with her two children in a mid-century modern home.
While she is officious and micro-managing - and the architect of her own misery - she is a cancer victim with a damaged childhood, so perhaps her judgement is justifiably awry.

These days, she works in the visual arts sector and likes exploring Melbourne laneways and galleries for a new discovery that will give her goosebumps. This was my first read by this author and unfortunately, the writing and plot did not impress me! Camille is a matchmaker by profession, she feels she can find the right person to take her place with her family for when she was no longer around.
All in all, I like the book. There's no fluff or mundane developments throughout the story, so you will read this book relatively fast. Britney King, you seriously slay me.

For Edward and Camille, the stunning conclusion arrives with one last twist of fate that no one saw coming. There was hesitation in what he said next.
While she's dying of cancer. From gender inequality to the fake lives presented on social media, this novel said what others aren't brave enough to say. That is until she meets Tom, an older business man who seems to have his life together. What kind of man cheats on a woman who has cancer? Camille knows she is dying, and she really wants to make sure her family will be taken care of after she is gone. To believe that just because they're good, everyone else is. Yes, that is how it was. Good character development, in other words for protagonists.
The Replacement Wife takes the reader inside cult lifestyle with all the little ways that the innocent get sucked in. Since she runs a match making business, she already has a few ideas of who to hook her husband up with. The only drawback lay in the abrupt move from present to past and back again without clarification. Yes, even when her dying wish is for him to meet women in a platonic sense so she knows that her children won't end up neglected, he will rise to the occasion and make sure she gets what she wants. My head kept saying what am I was so excited to read another Britney King book. If there is a choice of file format, which format is better to download?

I can't say that I agreed with much of Camille's logic, but I definitely felt her pain and understood her motives. I did appreciate how Camille handled things though. That is where the book's short-comings come in. This novel really blew me away. I had the pleasure of reading The Social Affair back in May and became enamored with New Hope Church. Montana is pretty, compassionate, churchgoing, and even has a beautiful singing voice. Every character that was introduced, we had to be given their entire life history and story! Not one primary character here is sympathetic.
