Product Description

Product Description

The Husband Diet is for fans of snarky humour, women who know what it’s like to feel under-appreciated, and those that don’t think plus size heroines only come in a size 12.

With a simple honesty that is in turns both hilarious and touching, you’ll laugh and cry. Sometimes both at the same time.

If you’re a fan of Jen Lancaster, Jennifer Weiner, Stella Newman, Fiona Gibson or Lucy Diamond then you’ll love Nancy Barone.

Erica Cantelli’s life feels more suffocating than a size 4 dress.

On the surface she’s maintaining the image of successful career woman, perfect wife and a doting mother with two wonderful children.

In reality she’s running out of hours in the day; 6 dress sizes bigger than she wants to be; and the only man who shows her any affection is her gay best friend.

In fact fantasizing about how to kill her increasingly disinterested husband is just about all that keeps Erica sane. That and a whole different type of fantasizing about the incredibly handsome new school Principal, Julian Foxham.

When her husband jokes about trading her for two size tens, Erica knows something has to change. But is another diet really the answer? Or is getting rid of him the fastest path to happiness? Now if she could only stop thinking about the gorgeous Mr Foxham…

For any woman who has ever felt under appreciated, or thought about giving up on their dreams, Erica is a hilarious breath of fresh air.

Praise for The Husband Diet



"Overall this is a great feel-good book with a lovely message to anyone with dreams to follow. A perfect holiday read!"
9/10 Novelicious.com

“…I enjoyed the characters and the humour running through the book was brilliant from start to finish.”
Bestbookstoread.co.uk

A definite holiday read. 5/5.
I Heart Books

“If you want a book that will have you laughing and rooting for the heroine from page one until the very end and wishing you had your own spider-killing hottie, then this is the book for you.”
KimTalksBooks.com

"The Husband Diet was a spunky debut, and I loved Erica Cantelli. Everyone needs an Erica Cantelli in their life, and they DEFINITELY need a Julian Foxham in their life. Where can I get a piece of that?
ChickLitReviewsandNews.com

“…Nancy Barone's book is very enjoyable. It will appear to readers who want a strong but realistic female character, the one who would pick the double chocolate cake over the fruit salad.”

About the Author

Nancy grew up in Canada, but at the age of 12 her family moved to Italy. Catapulted into a world where her only contact with the English language was her old Judy Blume books, Nancy became an avid reader and a die-hard romantic. Nancy stayed in Italy and, despite being surrounded by handsome Italian men, she married an even more handsome Brit. They now live in Sicily where she teaches English. Like Erica, the heroine of The Husband Diet, Nancy is of Italian descent, but she swears that is where the similarities stop. And she’s absolutely never fantasized about murdering her husband. Nancy is a member of the RWA and a keen supporter of the Women’s Fiction Festival at Matera where she meets up once a year with writing friends from all over the globe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny funny funny 30 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The fact that Erica's husband and her own mother are SO terrible to her had me rooting for her from the very start. I really liked her as a character - feisty and with a sense of humour despite everything - the book often had me snorting with laughter.
As well as all the funny moments, there are some darker moments too, but I was rooting for Erica to come through it all and get the happy ending she deserved! Really loved it - will look out for Nancy's next book.

I really liked Erica - she's larger than life and there were some very funny moments... especially the scene with the spider! The story is perfect if you're looking for a fun, light-hearted read that has some depth to it too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, very funny. 21 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose 4 stars because it really related to a lot of everyday issues surrounding everyday life. My favourite part was the beginning, when the characters were being born and evolved. Julian sounds absolutely gorgeous, however I really don't think these types exist in real life. I would recommend this to married, living with partner with children women. Good read, am written .
