From the Inside Flap:

Revenge is best served cold. Especially if you've been on a diet.

After years of being the perfect wife and mother, Francesca Kirwan finds her life changed irrevocably one dismal autumn afternoon when her husband, Mark, forgets his cell phone. In the space of ten minutes her comfortable, safe, uneventful existence is completely shattered. With her life turned upside down and an extremely uncertain future ahead of her, she has two choices...sink or swim!

Francesca decides to get a life, but first she must deal with razor-sharp international banker Nikki Langan. This particular superbabe is ten years younger and thirty pounds lighter than Francesca. Sculpted, toned, and dressed to kill, Nikki wants it all, and she doesn't intend to let anyone, least of all Francesca, stand in her way. But youth and beauty aren't everything, and Francesca proves to be a far tougher adversary than the glamorous career girl had anticipated.

After a shaky start, Francesca's life takes a decidedly upward turn. New job, new friends, new lifestyle--and when sexy journalist Ralph Casson shows more than a professional itnerest in her, Mark is not at all pleased Then Francesca decides to throw a party, and that's when the fun really starts.

The fun for the reader starts on the very first page of this witty and ultimately triumphant tale. Patricia Scanlan's many fans are in for a treat.
