Wife 22 by Melanie Gideon

In Wife 22, Alice Buckle has arrived at her midlife crisis. Her 20-year marriage is lacking depth, her job is unfulfilling, and she's reached the age where her mother died. When she looks up "happy marriage" on Google, she gets an e-mail inviting her to participate in an online marriage survey. She agrees and is assigned the moniker Wife 22. Soon she finds herself in personal and lengthy discussions with a caseworker who goes by the name Researcher 101. Alice remembers when she used to have these types of discussions with her husband. Soon, she and the caseworker move their online relationship to Facebook, still using aliases, and yet she longs for more. Melanie Gideon's debut novel has received positive reviews with the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "Wife 22 might have been an epic failure in the hands of a lesser author. But Gideon's skill and style reveal her to be a first-time novelist with a promising fiction future."
