The Secret Ingredient
Title: The Secret Ingredient
Author: Jane Heller
Realizing that her marriage has gone stale, Elizabeth Baskin, a professional perfectionist, finds the solution to her problems in a packet of miracle herbs, which she feels will restore her husband to his former glory.
WHAT IF A SECRET POTION…
Meet Elizabeth Baskin, who falls in love, gets married, and discovers six years into her union that the magic is gone—or, rather, fading. Her husband Roger has grown a paunch, lost interest in sex, and seems allergic to conversation. What’s a disgruntled wife to do?
COULD TURN THE DULLEST DUD…
After taking her sister’s advice, and consulting with a celebrity doctor, whose practice is a bit unconventional, Elizabeth is convinced that she’s found the secret ingredient to saving her marriage. All she has to do is slip the prescribed packet of miracle herbs into Roger’s orange juice and then—presto! She’ll have him back the way he was before he started coming home from work and falling asleep in front of the TV!
INTO A STIMULATING STUD?
But her plan goes dramatically awry, and instead of rekindling her romance with Roger, she finds herself stuck with a man she hardly recognizes and doesn’t even like. Suddenly, Elizabeth is breaking into the doctor’s office, running from the law, and teaming up with a transplanted southern belle—all in a desperate attempt to restore Roger to his old, imperfect self. What she learns is that perfection, especially when it comes to husbands, is highly overrated. The question is: does her revelation come too late?
