Miranda Schaeffer has put all her energy, love, and some of the best years of her life into being Stephen Schaeffer's wife. Now, a mother of three who has hit her thirties running, she has extra pounds in all the wrong places and a husband who wants a maid, not a lover. Then, Stephen, a semi-successful advertising executive, writes a spy novel under a pseudonym. The book skyrockets to the top of the bestseller lists, complete with lots of buzz about its mysterious author. Success is all that Stephen needs to decide he doesn't need Miranda. But a messy, expensive divorce isn't what the colossally arrogant Stephen wants. When fate offers him the chance to disappear with a motherlode of cash, he does, leaving Miranda with the kids and a mountain of bills. Casting about for a way out of the red, she comes up with a wild, daring idea. If it succeeds, she will have what every woman dreams about: a fabulous new life that will leave her looking great, and involved in a thrilling new romance. If the secret Miranda is concealing and a murderous plot against her don't destroy her and cost her everything she's struggled so hard to more
