Does every second wife look like Julia Roberts? Lu Klein certainly doesn't, and her life is anything but glamorous. When she married a man with children, Lu had no idea that she was also marrying his shrewish ex-wife, Beatrix. And Beatrix had no idea that making a new home with her second husband would mean welcoming her wicked teenage stepdaughter, Liv. And Liv's mother Roxie had no idea that so many new and exciting boyfriends could make her long for the stable life she and her ex had too eagerly left behind. In this tightly interconnected collection of ten short stories, author Laura Ruby chronicles the progress of Lu, Beatrix, Roxie and their various steps and exes as they take the perilous plunge into the maelstrom of the so-called "blended family." Both ruefully funny and wickedly insightful, I Am Not Julia Roberts offers finely-observed, honest and affecting takes on kids, step-kids, divorce, remarriage...and the movie Stepmom.

Holly Wilson has landed a dream job which involves her staying at five-star resorts around the world. There is however a proviso. She must travel incognito and that means telling lies. Holly hates lies. Her cover story, designed to minimise conversation on the subject, is that she is returning to her honeymoon destination for closure after her husband's sudden death. Holly has never been married but she does have a nineteen-year-old son, Harry, who she has raised single-handedly by working as a freelance copy editor after her boyfriend at university, Gareth, left to study in America, without knowing she was pregnant, and never returned. Philippe also has a secret. He is a novelist but writes under the pen name of Veronica Philips. His debut novel was a bestseller but he is not finding it so easy to write his second book. After scathing comments from his editor, following the submission of his first fifty pages, Philippe travelled to Mauritius for inspiration. Nine months later he knows the book is still sub-standard and his twelve month deadline is rapidly approaching. The only people on the island who know Philippe writes under a pseudonym are British couple Robert and Rosemary Forrester. Both in their late fifties, they are as much in love as when they first met eighteen years previously but now they share a terrible secret of their own. Holly meets the couple on her second evening in Mauritius. Rosemary is a similar age to Holly's mother but there the similarity ends. Holly has been estranged from her mother since falling pregnant with Harry and carries a terrible burden of guilt for the death of her father, which her mother blames her for. Rosemary's warmth highlights what Holly missed growing up and she hates the lies she is forced to tell her. Robert and Rosemary introduce Holly to their friend Philippe who is instantly smitten with her. She has not allowed herself to have a serious relationship since Gareth deserted her twenty years previously but she feels a connection with Philippe. What starts as a holiday romance soon develops into something more intense and they promise to meet up when he returns to the UK once he has finished writing his book, which she believes is a travelogue. Two months later an extraordinary twist of fate reveals what Philippe has been hiding from Holly. Will she be able to forgive him and will she be able to keep her promise to Rosemary?
