Juliet has done the right thing all her life, and where's it gotten her? She's a thirty-year-old widow who's had to move in with her parents. Things start to look up when her glamorous-but married-neighbor Seth seems to be flirting with her and helps her land a job at a local paper. Then she's assigned to investigate Seth's wife. Juliet is quickly immersed in lies, manipulation, and a deepening sex scandal. But she feels alive for the first time in a long time. Maybe she needs to do the wrong thing for once. Or maybe she's headed for disaster.
