Known for her deliciously wicked novels depicting the subtleties and pitfalls of modern relationships, Leslie Glass now takes stock of life's two most compelling priorities: love and money.

Successful stockbroker Annie Custer is the perfect working mom: Her only problems are her career and her domestic life. Impossible clients are driving her mad at work, while home is total chaos. Her burned-out husband refuses to tackle anything more strenuous than his golf game. As for her two teenage daughters, one won't get out of bed, and the other is flunking out of school. And now Annie's housekeeper, Dina, the glue keeping them all together, has just quit.

When her best friend, Carol asks Annie to do a slightly illegal favor for Carol's eccentric parents, Annie reluctantly agrees and is swept into a family feud that proves to be as dangerous as it is cantankerous. Carol's father accuses Annie of stealing valuable assets, and soon Annie's job and family are at risk in ways she never could have imagined. Fraud, theft, and a possible cruel murder challenge her loyalties and threaten to change her life forever. Pitted against the shady side of the cutthroat brokerage business, Annie faces the ultimate betrayal from the friend she tried to help, her husband (who still won't get off the golf course), her kids (who still can't get their act together), and a younger lover . . . who happens to be her boss.

With the same masterly storytelling and deft characterization that charmed readers in Over His Dead Body , Leslie Glass navigates the highs and lows in the life of a woman who decides it's time to take stock of her situation-and chart a new course for happiness.
