Maddie Faraday knows she's having a bad day when she finds a pair of black lace panties under the front seat of her husband's car. To make things more complicated, C.L. Sturgis, her old high school flame, is back in town and still has a yen for her. Maddie wants to get even with her husband, but she wants to keep her reputation, too, and the juggling act that follows ends with great sex in C.L.'s backseat, which leads to gossip and a showdown with her husband. Things get rapidly out of hand as Maddie discovers that nobody's been telling her the truth: not her husband, not C.L., not her gossiping mother, not her secretive best friend, not even her eight-year-old daughter, Emily. And when her husband disappears, Maddie soon becomes the most-talked-about person in town. She is on a quest for answers, but will she survive long enough to discover the truth ... and rediscover the man she loves?
