あらすじ・解説

USA Today best-selling author Bethany Lopez brings you an all-new trilogy about getting a second chance at love. Follow Whitney, Summer, and Margo as they experience the good, bad, and ugly of dating again in your 30s and 40s. Join them in the Jilted Wives Club.

When life gives you lemons, make a Lemontini....

Divorced and jobless at 40-something, Whitney never thought she’d be starting over. But here she is. Single and (not so) ready to mingle - with anyone except him.

Luca leads a charmed life. He's got the perfect job, the support of a big Italian family, and a bevy of women eager to grant his mother’s wish for grandchildren...except the woman he really wants.

Now that Whitney’s starter wife days are over, Luca is determined to convince her to give him a shot.

Too bad the only shot Whitney’s sure of right now is the Lemontini.

Fun and charming read!

I recently had the opportunity to listen to Starter Wife by Bethany Lopez, which is book one in her new The Jilted Wives Club. Narrated by Amanda Miller, she brings this story about second chances to life as a group of women come together to support each other. I have to tell you I loved all of them, but up first is Whitney. Whitney is divorced and looking to see what comes next for her. She definitely never expected Luca. And I just loved him. He was sweet and charming and just so determined. Whitney is dealing with so many changes, can she let Luca in her life? I definitely loved watching him try.

Starter Wife by Bethany Lopez was a great introduction to the series and included some great characters. I am so excited to see what is to come!

Happy listening!

Easy listen

Interesting story about a woman that is divorced with teenage kids finding a new love. The new love is several years younger than she is. I enjoyed the story and found it easy to listen.

Love it

Starter Wife by B. Lopez is the first book in the new Jilted Wives Club Series. This aidio book was narrated by Amanda Miller.
Lets just say, this is another winner for me. I started reading and it was like coming home after a long day to snuggle up on the couch and relax. This book was that good.
Whitney is a divorced mom of two teens who's ready to start over. New job, new relationship - maybe, new friends.
Luca is a successful young business man, a good guy, the perfect bookboyfriend, a dreamguy.
Both have some hangups, but they never give up. A heartwarming, fantastic read. The story gave me all the feels. I fell in insta-love with storyline and characters. Just perfect for a weekend on the couch.

Whitney and Luca

Whitney is older than Luca and she worries about the age difference and she two teenage kids. She is starting over after the divorced and getting back into the work world. Luca works in his Dad’s family business and comes from a very close family, including Sunday dinners. These two meet in a bar and she is not ready, she is actually just starting a counseling group for Jilted wives while in that bar. He cant stop thinking about her. I think this is a great story and a nice beginning to a series. I would recommend this story. I have a note about narration…the narrator does a pretty good job on the two main characters but the secondary characters are not very good. Margo and Dad. It is still well worth a listen. Sisters Spotlight 💕

Contemporary Romance

Starter Wife by Bethany Lopez is a contemporary romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Amanda Miller. This is the first book in The Jilted Wives Club.

Bethany's books always leave me with a smile. I really enjoyed the relationship that bloomed between Whitney and Luca. I loved that we got both of their points of views throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

I can't wait for the next book in the series Trophy Wife to be released on audio so I can get Summer and Noah's story.

Amanda did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of her work in the future.

older women/younger man

I read this book when it came out and have enjoyed several books by Bethany Lopez in the past. I'm not usually inclined to liking older women/younger men tropes, but the storyline was great and the characters were wonderful. I was invested in the outcome. My heart ached as well as cheered Whitney on to get a happy ending. This world she has created has me excited for the next books!

Amanda Miller did a good job as narrator. Her male voices aren't quite as good as hoped, but it wasn't bad. I would have enjoyed the narration better with a male narrator though. Overall, I enjoyed listening to the book.

Solid story, ok narration

Starter Wife was a good story. Whitney is a recently divorced woman with two teenagers and out of work. She's struggling with the feelings of being cheated on with a woman nearly half her age. She's struggling with her self esteem. In comes Luca, he's a younger man in the prime of his life. He isn't exactly looking for love but isn't against it either. He goes after Whitney with a vengeance. Whit doesn't stand a chance against his charm.  The story offers a vast amount of feelings. There's some humor with the club... those gals are great. I loved the quick way they all supported each other and was there for one another. The relationship between Luca and Whitney was sweet. You see them develop a nice friendship into a relationship they both seem to want. Relationships aren't easy though. Past feelings aren't easy to navigate.

The narrator was Amanda Miller. I haven't heard this narrator before the Starter Wife. I enjoyed her as Whiney and as Whitney's friends. She gave the girls personality. The girls were fun and light together and Miller really pulled that off. However, I didn't exactly enjoy Miller's narration of Luca. More than that, I really disliked her narration of Luca's parents. It sounded too much like a person faking a voice. All in all, the narration wasn't my favorite but I still listened to the story within a day.

Great Read

Starter Wife (The Jilted Wives Club #1) was a good read by Bethany Lopez. Whitney is a divorced and jobless forty-something who never thought she’s be starting over. Luca has lead a charmed life with the perfect job and the support of his big Italian family. Luca is determined to convince Whitney to give him a shot. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Funny & relatable!

Refreshing and funny, totally relatable and an all around enjoyable listen, Bethany Lopez's Starter Wife is a winner! I love her new adult books, but I do enjoy listening to the over 40 perspective too. Whitney is recently divorced, jobless and trying to start over after 20 years of marriage. When she joins a support group, she finds a couple of friends that she can easily relate to and they form the Jilted Wives Club. Luca, a successful businessman has not found the woman of his dreams yet. Sure, he has dated, but nothing serious. When Whitney crosses his path, his life is about to change.Will Whitney be willing to take the chance on love again? Is Luca willing to take on a woman with an ex and children? This romcom had me laughing and understanding exactly these women! There is a lot of emotional baggage incurred over 20 years as well as a fear of starting new. Let alone the handsome man is younger! The kids are spot on with their feelings and I love the interaction with Luca's family and Whitney's ex. It's got all the elements to make a heavy subject into a light and enjoyable listen. I loved it and can't wait to hear the next in the series.

Amanda Miller is our story teller and she gives us a wonderful rendition of the story. Good voices, easily distinguishable characters and an easy pace make the listen fly by. It was a fun story!
