Publisher's Summary

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 book which leads you into a new normal

I wasn’t sure after the first couple of chapters whether I would truly get into this book then found myself some 20 chapters later absolutely immersed in a world that, despite being anything but, had become a new kind of normal for Hel and co.

And when she was good is REALLY good!

From start to finish I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Anne Wittman’s voice narrates the story perfectly. Laura Lippman is my new favourite author.

if you liked the hunting party, pretty little liars, the girl on the train, you will certainly enjoy this one! Happy listening!

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.
