In the comfortable suburb where she lives, Heloise is just a mom, the youngish widow with a forgettable job who somehow never misses her son's soccer games or school plays. But in discrete hotel rooms throughout the area, she's the woman of your dreams - if you can afford her hourly fee.
For more than a decade, Heloise has believed her unorthodox life to be a safe one. But now this secret life is under siege. And nearby another so-called 'suburban madam' has been found dead in her car, an apparent suicide...
Can Heloise stay alive long enough to remake her life again? Can she really expect to leave everything else behind?

"Great stand alone thriller"
I really enjoyed the subject or this novel and was completely absorbed from chapter 2. I was just slightly disappointed by the ending...it was a little predictable. Still, a great listen.
