Violet Monte believed her love and marriage would last a lifetime–until she catches her husband in bed with a younger woman.
When she realizes she was nothing more than a trophy wife, Violet decides to chase her own dreams. The only problem is, she has no idea what they are. Violet begins to pursue her own interests which sometime include spying on her mysterious neighbor, who might actually be a lady of the night.
Just as Violet is finding stability–– and the possibility of opening her heart again–– her husband returns not with an apology, but with a signed pre-nuptial agreement, claiming he’ll keep everything and leave her with nothing.
Violet is far from the compliant woman he once knew but she doubts she has the strength to fight and win, until her intriguing neighbor unlocks what Violet has been looking for all along.
Can Violet fight back from a lost love and reinvent herself into the person she always wanted to be or will she forever be just an ex-trophy wife?
Violet is struggling to face facts that her marriage is over. After finding her high school sweetheart husband with another woman, Violet decides she needs a change. She takes off to visit her son, who is a detective with the Sydney police force. She encounters a ver sexy police captain and things heat up.
I enjoyed Violet and her escapades. She tends to stay in trouble and I can relate to that! The setting and the action keep you glued to your seat. However, the conversations are a little stilted. It doesn’t take away from the story though.
This is a wonderful, fast paced, sweet read.
