A pitch-perfect exploration of modern married life, Jessica Saunders's deliciously readable novel embraces the truth that some old flames can't be snuffed out, no matter how many years go by.
Rachel Miller is a lawyer and mother of two who's just as comfortable in a courtroom as she is on the sidelines of a soccer field. Sure, her marriage is on autopilot, her parents are overly involved, and the other suburban moms are just a little bit catty. But if you ask Rachel, life is good. That is until her world is upended when racy photos of her and her high school boyfriend, the famous actor Jack Bellow--along with his love letters to her--are published in a tabloid, unexpectedly thrusting Rachel into the spotlight. This newfound attention calls into question her marriage, her career, and her superstar ex.
Betrayed by someone she trusted and reunited with the man she tried so hard to forget, Rachel must ask herself, "How did I get here? And what do I really want?"
