How to Keep a Husband for Ten Days

Publication Date: 08 February 2023

Pretending to be married… How hard can it be?!

When Lina’s oldest friends unexpectedly announce they’re coming to stay, she has to think fast. No one knows she and her husband Brown are breaking up, and so she persuades him to act as if they aren’t… After all, how hard can it be to pretend to be married for another ten days?

Surely if they follow these rules, they’ll be fine?

  1. Throw your backs out striking couple poses
  2. Practice laughing super loudly at each other’s jokes
  3. Hold each other’s hands with a grip of steel when walking
  4. Share a bed…

But, despite her step-by-step guide, pretending to be married isn’t as easy as she thought. And by day five, Lina is starting to realise there’s a thin line between love and hate.

And while she can try to fool her friends, she can’t fool her heart. Was she too hasty calling time on her marriage? Is this becoming more than make believe? And does she even have enough time to find out if Brown feels the same?

This absolutely hilarious and totally addictive romcom is perfect for fans of Ali Hazelwood’s The Love Hypothesis, Christina Lauren’s The Unhoneymooners, and Emily Henry.
