When Marcy Ermerson moves to New York from Chicago she has it all a husband she loves, more money then she could ever wish for, a flat to die for and as many manicures and shopping sprees as she can manage.

Hedge Fund Wives

Hedge Fund Wives

But having swapped her practical puffer jacket for mink she soon realises that buckets of money she may have, but her life has lost all meaning.

She has no true friends and no purpose in life other than to spend her husband’s money. The other hedge fund wives are two-faced and bitchy, and Marcy thinks she’ll never make any true friends.

Then the economy takes a nose dive and she finds her husband is one of the few hedge fund managers still making the big time and the envy of the other wives.

When her husband inevitably has an affair, her world is turned inside out, but instead of crumpling, Marcy decides it’s time to start living her life the way she wants to live it.

How hard can it be to live a life without disposable cash? and is Marcy destined to be snubbed by the other Hedge Fund wives forever?
