About the Author
Jane Elizabeth Hughes is an obsessive reader. Unfortunately, reading novels all day is not an easy career path, so Jane has a day job as professor of international finance at Simmons College School of Business in Boston. She has also consulted with multinational corporations and governments for nearly three decades and written and lectured widely about international finance throughout the world. With the help of her brilliant agent, Marcy Posner, she published her first novel, Nannyland, with Simon & Schuster Pocket Star Books in 2016, and she joined the SparkPress family in 2021 with the publication of The Long-Lost Jules. A mother of four and granny of eight (the eldest is only seven, so she's a very busy granny), she is fortunate enough to live on beautiful Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Oh yes, and she did work for the CIA once upon a time--so she knows whereof she writes.
". . . Shelley has to sort through the hurt of 20 years of lies and deception to come to her own sort of peace. . . . A zany cast of supporting characters and situations keeps the proceeds from getting too serious in this fun summer read."

"The Spy's Wife is a smart, intimate look into a marriage imperiled by a secret. A moving, unforgettable novel with a complex protagonist. A must read."
--Nicki Chen, author of When in Vanuatu and Tiger Tail Soup

"Diapers, deadly encounters, and a refugee crisis. What if the boring guy you married turned out to be a super-hot international spy who loves you? Jane Hughes shines light on domestic fatigue in this bright, funny, irresistible romp that connects the dots between marital and global complacency. The Spy's Wife brilliantly walks the magic line between wildly inconceivable and super relatable."
--Marcie Maxfield, author of Em's Awful Good Fortune

"The Spy's Wife is a hard-to-put-down, fast-paced page-turner with satisfying twists, relatable characters, real-life humor, and swoon-worthy moments. I can't wait to read more from Ms. Hughes!"
--Hilary Grossman, author of the Forest River PTA Moms series

"Marriage is a mystery. Add to the mix a chaotic, unconventional family, and we're in for a wild ride. This is a story of one woman's strength to walk through betrayal and lies while also navigating her pain and anger with grace and composure. Part heartbreaking, part joy--this book kept me guessing until the very end."
--Maan Gabriel, author of After Perfect

"Unraveling secrets, multiple identities, and scandal, the heroine of this fast-paced novel is trapped in a web of lies she must untangle. I was caught up in her world as she holds her fam- ily together while trying to find meaning in her own life. The Spy's Wife is a fun read that made me think about my own life entanglements."
--Karen Gershowitz, author of Travel Mania: Stories of Wanderlust

"The protagonist in The Spy's Wife is a very engaging, compassionate super-mom whose world is upended when she starts to learn about her husband's secret life; this forces her to assess her own choices. I could easily identify with her. Entertaining, surprising, a bit of a romp . . . a very fun book to read."
--Ames Sheldon, author of Eleanor's Wars, Don't Put the Boats Away, and Lemons in the Garden of Love
