About this ebook

The first in the LiBREttO series of short stories by Crystin Morgan

Every Friday afternoon four friends – Leah, Belle, Geeta and Effie – meet at the local hangout for women with impeccable nails, waiting-list handbags and banker husbands: Café Jamilla.

They gossip, they giggle, they bitch, they lust after rainbow-coloured patisseries. And they drink coffee. But when Effie breaks the news that her boyfriend Rhys has asked her to marry him, the sight of her sparkling emerald engagement ring reminds Belle of an extraordinary tale she heard one booze-fuelled night some years ago. A tale of a third wife. A tale of an affair, a guilty conscience, a disappearance, a suspected murder and a desperate plan that couldn’t possibly work. Could it? A tale that’s ripe for a Hollywood treatment, the four women agree.

With George Clooney playing the male lead, naturally.

    The Third Wife

    Every Friday afternoon they meet for coffee and a side serving of gossip. Leah is the first to arrive. It’s four o’clock on the dot. She claims their usual table, the one next to the window framed with fairy lights and the best view for people-watching.

    There are plenty of empty tables. It’s usually busier than this on Fridays. Two well-dressed women in their early 60s with matching beauty spa gift bags giggle like girls and compare notes on their hopeless husbands at the table in the far corner, drinking tea served in white china pots and eating sticky chocolate brownies. A man in his late 20s with freckles and chin-length chestnut brown hair tied back in a half-hearted ponytail sits alone on a stool at the side
