"Monroe is a masterful storyteller." --Philadelphia Inquirer
There are some things even forever friends can't fix. . .
Annette Goode Davis is a survivor. Life has often knocked her down, but she's never stayed there for long. To Annette, it's all about family and old friends like Rhoda O'Toole. And right now, Annette needs all the friends she can get. Because lately, her husband, Pee Wee, barely has the time of day for her. And she has no idea why. . .
Desperate to regain Pee Wee's affections, Annette goes on a crash diet, gets a makeover, and looks hotter than she has in a long time. Everyone notices--except Pee Wee. So when handsome Louis Baines showers her with attention, Annette finds herself having an affair and spending money on Louis like there's no tomorrow. But when she learns a terrible secret about her new lover, she realizes she's in way over her head. Soon Annette must face the fact that she may have destroyed the life she loved--and this time, not even Rhoda can help her make things right. . .
"A fast-paced, sexy, tense story that will make readers think twice before getting tangled up in an affair." --Booklist
"Monroe's never better than when she's writing about Annette and Rhoda. . .who are always getting in trouble." --Publishers Weekly
