American readers fell in love with Elizabeth Buchan’s Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman. Now, with the delicious sequel to that beloved New York Times bestseller, Buchan answers the intriguing question: What happens when the mistress becomes the wife?

Minty Lloyd is now the second wife to her husband, Nathan—but she is haunted by her very much alive and quite reborn predecessor, Rose. Yet after a shocking phone call, Minty finds herself united with an unexpected ally—the woman she once betrayed.

With Buchan’s signature gift for capturing women’s daily joys and struggles, Wives Behaving Badly is an irresistible story of love, loss, and renewal that explores the very nature of friendship and the bonds that sometimes grow strongest when stretched to the breaking point.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tara | 2/20/2014

    " I can't believe I even finished it. There is no one to like or even sympathize with in this book. It gives new meaning to the phrase, "With friends like these who needs enemies." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bev | 2/14/2014

    " This follow-up book to Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman is not quite as good as the original, but I still enjoyed reading about middle-aged women who were trying to put their past behind them to start a completely new life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/7/2014

    " I just love her books. This is the sequel to Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman: find out what happened to Minty and Rose (and Nathan). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 1/27/2014

    " what goes around comes around....a follow up to Revenge of the Middle Aged Woman. Another great story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/25/2014

    " This is a good summer read. It is light hearted and just serious enough to not feel like you are reading a trashy romance. I finished it in 3 days. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynsey | 1/17/2014

    " I've given up on this book, about a quarter of the way in. I find the characters hard to empathise with or even care about, they are all so unlikeable! I rarely give up on a book, so I may return to it at some point. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nariza Salles | 1/17/2014

    " i can't relate to it because i'm only 15 years old...so i don't like it that much.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patricia | 12/31/2013

    " It's a very slow book that you have to keep pushing yourself to finish. Was it worth it? Marginally. She has definitely written better books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 12/27/2013

    " I liked the book about Rose better. Minty comes off as self-centered, spoiled and not likeable. I thought the ending implausible, but then I'm not in this situation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 12/9/2013

    " Not as good as "Middle Aged" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chanpreet | 12/4/2013

    " Verry interesting! I didn't read the first book, but this one was great and I didn't feel like I missed too much. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jenny | 11/29/2013

    " Good read and interesting to read a story of a 'second wife' as I am one.... but my husband was not married when I started seeing him (just to make that clear!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 11/15/2013

    " It was like a good lifetime movie "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 11/3/2013

    " Got half way through this and gave up. I usually like Elizabeth Buchanan's books but this was just depressing! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelly | 8/28/2013

    " Bleak, dull, and riddled with typos. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kbookchin | 7/14/2013

    " just finished this. easy read, but writing is good. I read the original and liked the sequel. Nothing amazing but enjoyed it. It was fun to hear the other woman's POV. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cris Bergin | 6/13/2013

    " A sequel to Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman, a quick and airy read about the second wife syndrome and how it comes to affect the woman who had the affiar in the first book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paddy | 5/30/2013

    " Again, the limited audio book selections at my library led me to read something I normally would not. This is not the worst chick lit I've read. I can't decide whether it's amusing to expose characters' flaws so vividly, sort of like Seinfeld, wives behaving badly indeed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 12/23/2012

    " In a way I liked this better than "Revenge of the Middle Aged Woman"; it was less predicatable anyway. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy Journell-Hoch | 10/7/2012

    " Ended up pulling for the husband stealer in the end. Felt sorry for her. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lkelley | 9/5/2012

    " Disappointing to say the least. Anti-climactic and the characters were very two dimmentional. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosa | 5/19/2012

    " This is one book I didn't want to come to an end as the central character's journey is so compelling. I don't very often keep books once I've read them but this is one I will definitely reread. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Clare | 2/6/2012

    " I normally like Elizabeth Buchan's writing but this book was shallow and not v satisfying - it could have done so much more about how the mistress became the second wife and then a widow. Luckily didn't take v long to read... and it's a library book too. Two pluses. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 7/19/2011

    " This book was part 2. I am glad I read them in order. I would have spoiled it for myself reading this one first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqui | 5/8/2011

    " i am now finished with my Elizabeth Buchan Kindle Festival. Loved, loved, loved her breezy and well-written books. Nothing complicated here but just fun reads. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate | 4/28/2011

    " Depressing. The first book was satisfying and uplifting. This made me feel wrung out and sad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sasha | 3/28/2011

    " Buchan constantly amazes me. Her storylines are so lacking it can almost send you to sleep, but the characters are vividly real with all their little quirks and warty personalities. No one does a realistic character better than Buchan, I just wish she could give me a plotline with them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patricia | 3/2/2011

    " It's a very slow book that you have to keep pushing yourself to finish. Was it worth it? Marginally. She has definitely written better books. "

    " Not as good as Revenge of the Middle-aged Woman, but still enjoyable; listened to this on CD "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracy | 1/9/2010

    " book sort of dragged on. at first i didn't like minty at all, but, towards the end she did grow up and realized a few things...
    a bland book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bre | 1/2/2010

    " This book was really hard to get through. I just couldn't get into it. It didn't seem to go anywhere. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 11/12/2009

    " On audio. I love listening to a British accent.
    It was OK. I didn't realize it's actually a sequel to another book, and I kind of wish I had listened to the first one first. It was entertaining enough, but not real heavy on action. "
