What's a loyal forty-year-old California housewife supposed to do when her hot-shot lawyer husband tells her he wants a divorce? If she's Caroline James, she holds her panic at bay with a makeover and a massage. Actually, her newfound freedom is something to be relished, though Caroline's going to have to work hard to keep her head above water in a West Coast world of hot tubs, margaritas, and hungry land sharks, as she nervously prepares to fend off a slew of unscrupulous settlement tactics. Though it's a little scary being alone, a new romance could be appearing over the horizon, and she feels truly alive for the first time in a long time. Until the suspicious death of the woman who first warned her to watch her back -- the unpleasant ex-wife of her spouse's law partner -- has Caroline wondering if she's got more to worry about than a custody battle ...

Newly separated from her lawyer husband, Caroline James heads to the spa for a makeover and a massage, looking for a tonic to her battered pride. Instead she encounters Eleanor Hampton, the ex-wife of her spouse's law partner, a woman so bitter she makes Medea look like Anne of Green Gables. Watch your back, Eleanor tells her. You won't believe the stuff they've pulled. When Eleanor turns up suspiciously dead in her hot tub, Caroline opens the Pandora's Box of documents the vengeful socialite has sent as proof of the firm's unscrupulous divorce tactics. Between fighting her divorce proceedings, raising two children, and mending her broken heart, Caroline sleuths her way through upscale La Jolla, California to unravel the truth. For the first time in a long time, she feels truly alive, if only she can stay that way...
