The Fiancée by Holly Lewis

Lucy gets engaged to three men during World War II because “No one should have to go over- seas without someone to come home to.” A lovely thought, until the war ends and all three arrive at her apartment on the same evening - the apartment Lucy and her sister are in danger of los-ing to their acrimonious landlady. Will Lucy find a way to say “no” to what she doesn’t want so she can say “yes” to what she does? A mad-cap, wig-swapping, door-slamming, cake-facing farce with smart, hilarious women at its heart.
