About the Book by Astrid Arditi
Determined to put her family back together, Sloane Harper stalks her ex husband and his annoyingly stunning mistress, Kate Stappleton. But she’s not the only one. Handsome IRS agent Ethan Cunning is surveying Kate too, but for entirely different reasons. He is attempting to nail Kate’s playboy boss.
Ethan and Sloane decide to help each other, which sends Sloane’s wobbly life spinning out of control. She’ll have to face danger, humiliation, and – scariest of all – the dating scene, to lure her daughters’ father home.
Losing control was the best thing to happen to Sloane…until it turned lethal.

I had a difficult time getting into the start of this book. In the beginning, I think the author thought some things would be humorous, her housekeeper that doesn’t clean, her mother’s criticisms, her stalking the ex-husband’s girlfriend. I just felt sad that she was letting everyone else run over her. I’ve gone through a divorce and watched others go through the same- so I understand that the author wanted to show the character where she was at in that point in time.
I kept reading to see how the mystery part of the story was going to unfold. I was certain that Sloane’s involvement with Ethan was going to give her some opportunities to grow and realize that she wasn’t defined by what others thought of her.
Sloane’s relationship with her daughters is precious. There are other relationships that evolve through the story and all the characters are written well. The pacing and writing are well done also. I was glad I kept reading this book and look forward to more by this author
