USA Today Bestselling Author Bethany Lopez brings you her break-out series about getting a second chance at love later in life. Follow Whitney, Summer, Margo, Charlotte, and Andi as they experience the good, bad, and ugly of dating again in their thirties and forties. Join them in The Jilted Wives Club.
When your first shot of love curdles, switch to a nice Cabernet.
Charlotte never imagined she’d be a single mom in her thirties. With a fulfilling job, a sweet toddler, and a supportive family, she knows she should be counting her blessings, but it feels like something is missing… her.
Although he and Charlotte made a marriage pact when they were teenagers, Damon always knew he’d never get married. An architect and artist, his life is full, and there has never been room for more than casual affairs. But lately, he’s felt like something is missing.
When they find themselves alone in Italy, the food, wine, culture, and gorgeous countryside become the backdrop of a passionate affair. In the midst of finding themselves, they found each other.
But when reality sets in, can they make this vacation romance into something that lasts, or will they be left with nothing but memories and a nice cabernet?

    Char and Damon are absolutely amazing characters that I loved getting to know better. They have been in the background but their story was wonderful. I spent a day getting to know them, touring Italy, and falling in love right along with them. I can’t wait for more Jilted Wives!
