Publisher's summary

Single mother Roz has reached her breaking point. After the dissolution of her marriage, Roz's business has gone under, debts are racking up, the rent is late, and she's struggling to provide for her son, who is misbehaving in school. When Roz gets an eviction notice, she knows it's time for action - she has two weeks to find a solution, or they will be kicked out of their home.

Increasingly desperate, Roz doesn't know where to turn. At her sister's fortieth birthday party, Roz meets Scott Elias - wealthy, powerful, and very married. But the impression Roz leaves on him is indelible. He tracks her down and makes Roz an offer to spend the night with him - for money. He wants no-strings-attached intimacy and can guarantee total discretion. With that kind of cash, Roz is forced to do things she never thought herself capable of.

4th Book is another winner!!

I love this author soo much because she doesn't seem to just crank out nonsense to make money but persists on taking her time and writing EXCELLENT stories. What Kind of Mother Are You, Open Your Eyes, Keep Your Friends Close and this book, The Mistake I Made are surely best sellers. Paula Daly is so organized and detail oriented but not to the point of redundancy by any means. I read these 4 books in about a week. I'm starting the last one, I think, called The Trophy Child. I keep waiting for disappointment because so many authors I've got excited about in my recent past, end up writing a couple really good reads only to write crap novels afterwards. I wish Daly would write more books. She's my favorite author thus far comparing her to Lisa Gardner, who wrote Hide and Say Goodbye, EXCELLENT BOOKS, Karin Slaughter, who wrote Unseen, VERY GOOD ALSO, Lisa Jackson, Lisa Jewell, Kathy Reich, who wrote De Ja BONES, etc. Thomas Harris who wrote Silence of the Lambs is also good. I would recommend all 4 of Paula Dalys books outlined above and you won't be disappointed.

Over and over

I’ve read this book over and over. Love it.
Really love the narrator. She did great at mimicking children and male voices. I’ll keep listening over and over. I’ve got the Kindle, the Audible, and the actual book.

Please write a book 2!
