|Plot Summary of The Million Dollar Divorce|
Simon & Schuster, Sep 2004, 23.00, 292 pp.
Wealthy businessman Nate Kenny and his wife Monica are a happy couple except they disagree over when to begin raising a family. Nate wants children right away as his life goal is a loving family, but Monica persuades him to wait three years.
Three years later, the couple learns that Monica is incapable of bearing children. An outraged Nate wants to end their marriage as he feels his beloved had been untruthful, but divorce means the loss of about thirty million dollars that he feels she has not earned. His hope to leave her with nothing is the infidelity clause of their prenuptial agreement, but he knows she has never cheated on him.
Barber Lewis Waters has major debts, a nine-month old baby, and a pregnant girlfriend when he smacks into Nate's expensive vehicle with no insurance. Nate informs the beleaguered twenty-five years old man that he will forget the damage, pay off the man's debts, and provide money to care for his infant if Lewis successfully seduces Monica. Lewis unenthusiastically accepts, but as he thrives on his mission, Nate changes his mind and wants Monica back, but he wonders what to do about his new squeeze.
