Maggie Moran is a forty-year-old divorcee.  Her teenage son is about to graduate from high school and his father is planning a visit to their Montana ranch for the celebration.  Maggie divorced Chicago cop Jack Dawson thirteen years earlier, mainly because Jack seemed to thrive on danger and Maggie just couldn't handle the constant fear anymore.  But even after all these years, she has never really gotten over mouthwateringly-sexy Jack.  Now he looks better than ever, but Maggie can't make the mistake of getting involved with him again.  He's still the same old Jack, right?

Jack Dawson was planning to leave Montana right after his son's high school graduation, but there were a few things he hadn't counted on.  First of all, Maggie is sexier and more gorgeous than ever.  Also, Jack assumed her father was still running the ranch and he isn't happy to find Maggie doing the bulk of the work.  Worse yet, her prize bull has been stolen and Maggie intends to ride out on her own to look for him!  That goes against Jack's every instinct as a cop, not to mention his personal feelings for Maggie.  Sure, they've been divorced for years but that doesn't make it any easier for him to see Maggie in danger.

Maggie and Jack have already given the relationship thing a try and there were reasons why they divorced.  Just how much have they changed over the years?  They're having a hard time keeping their hands off of each other, but is there more between them than lust?  What happens when Jack's visit comes to an end? 

Witty, sexy and suspenseful, A FABULOUS WIFE is an excellent beginning to Dianne Castell's Forty and Fabulous series.  Maggie worked hard to build a good life for herself and her son after her divorce.  She's independent and perfectly able to take care of herself.  Jack knows he deliberately courts danger, but would he ever understand the toll his career took on Maggie?  It was obvious they never completely stopped having feelings for each other and I hoped they would find a way to resolve the issues that drove them apart in the first place.  I loved meeting Maggie's two best friends and can't wait to read their stories as the trilogy continues!
