The Wives of Bath, by Wendy Holden

As you can see from the below posts, I brought four novels along on my vacation, but between jet-lagged early mornings and long plane rides, I finished them all. I bought this fifth book in the worst airport on earth, Charles DeGaulle, from a scanty selection of English-language novels.

The airport may suck, but this book certainly doesn't! It is frothy, funny, and fluffy. Just don't expect the supporting characters to be realistic, and do expect the ending to be extremely pat and contrived. Basically, it's the perfect book to read while you're waiting for your plane, and definitely as far as chick lit goes, you could do a hell of a lot worse.
