This is an auction for THE WEDDING AT BUENO-VISTA, by Shonagh Koea.

"Elaine Frobisher may be invisible to those who wish her well, but she is all too visible to such predators as the lecherous Adrian Bunce and the burglars who watch her house. In terror, Elaine flees to an anonymous apartment block and for protection sets about inventing an invisible husband . . . "

From the NZ Book Council's website:

"KOEA, Shonagh, fiction writer, was born in Taranaki and grew up in Hawkes Bay. An assiduous writer as a child, at the age of 8 she won two guineas in a Womans Weekly competition. She became a journalist, and in her late teens married a fellow journalist, later editor of the Taranaki Herald. He died suddenly in 1987 and three years later Koea left New Plymouth and moved to Kingsland, Auckland, pursuing her interest in antiques and paintings, which had already resulted in a number of articles. Koea's fiction was first published when she was in her early 30s. In 1981 she won the Air New Zealand Short Story Competition and since then, stories have appeared regularly, several being anthologised. Now a full-time writer still living in Auckland, she has published two collections of short stories and three novels, and has won three major literary grants . . . "
