Sylvie Schiffer at forty has a life most women dream about: a gorgeous home in the exclusive suburb of Shaker Heights, two perfect teenage children, a successful husband with a lucrative luxury car dealership. Sylvie has everything, it seems, but what she wants most: passion and romance - moonlit cruises, holding hands, gazing at the stars. "When you're married," Sylvie sighs, "you don't even get kissed on the mouth."
With building the business, raising the babies, and creating their home, she and Bob hadn't found much time to focus on love. But now that the twins are off to college and the business is booming, Sylvie is sure they will make their marriage bloom again. So she believes until the day she does laundry and notices those incriminating credit card receipts. Her husband has found romance, but it isn't with her.
Bob is having an affair.
Shocked and enraged, Sylvie fantasizes about a bullet to the leg (just to make Bob lame) - followed by a hefty settlement. Her mother begs her to calm down: Her marriage is worth saving. Sylvie's having none of that. Out for blood, she sets off to confront Marla, the other woman. What she finds, however, is not what she expects. Looking at Marla is like gazing back in time: Except for ten years and fifteen pounds, Marla could be her twin. Marla has the best of Bob's love - flowers, hot sex, breathy phone calls, candlelit dinners - yet she admits to Sylvie that she lacks the thing she wants most: a husband and home of her own. "When you're single," Marla sighs, "you have to smell good twenty-four hours a day."
Going beyond revenge, Sylvie hatches a brilliant scheme to make them both winners and bring Bob to his knees. But will they end up with what they want or walk away empty-handed and brokenhearted?
