Overview
Newlyweds Jana and Lawrence return from their Caribbean honeymoon to Los Angeles, where Lawrence is a partner in a prestigious Beverly Hills law firm. After Jana moves into Lawrence's home in Hollywood Hills, she undergoes a complete lifestyle change and now spends her time shopping and doing charity work with the wives of the other partners. Her days as a student at Bible College seem like a distant memory now that she's a full-time wife..

Soon Jana and Lawrence's values begin to clash, and the marriage falls apart. After a spat over Lawrence's sexual appetite, he tells Jana he wants a divorce. Confused and heartbroken by the sudden turn of events, she slowly realizes that it was physical attraction that drew Lawrence to her--it was never about love. She was nothing more than a trophy wife. So when three months later she meets Garrett Ransom, a handsome widower, she vows that this time, she's going to do things right. .

In The Ideal Wife, Thomas has written an engaging and inspirational novel featuring ordinary people facing everyday challenges, as they struggle to achieve personal happiness and success while maintaining their faith-based principles..

Thomas (The Prodigal Husband) offers her female fan base a titillating story that will likely have women outraged and up in arms. She writes for Christian readers, but her topic will challenge them: married couples who opt for the swingers’ lifestyle. Jana Collins, a 24-year-old college graduate, is swept off her feet by her older, wealthy husband, Lawrence, who showers her with material goods. But with the gifting comes a demand. Lawrence quickly starts twisting the Bible to get his naïve wife to participate in extramarital activities for his pleasure and against her will. When “the lifestyle” takes its toll on Jana emotionally and spiritually, she finds the inner strength to hold true to herself despite intense pressure from her husband. Thomas’s story line is equally unsettling and disturbing as the male characters manipulate biblical principles for their own selfish purposes and at the expense of their female companions. Female readers will find more heat (as in feeling angry) than help in this story (Oct.)
