  "Susan Isaacs gives a fresh kind of new heroine in this mystery suspense thriller. Rosie Myers, An average-everyday high school teacher, a bit plump though pretty. Just a wife, mother, and homemaker from suburbia with a nice-enough loving husband, a teacher himself. Rosie's troubles begin when husband Richie transforms from math teach to Manhattan mogul, and uproots the family to an estate on Long Island. Still in all, what could be so bad about the good life, just an adjustment. Rosie finds out it's more than just an adjustment when Ritchie moves out the morning after their 25th wedding anniversary and leaves her cold for the classic trophy gal. Now Rose's living alone at the big empty estate, eating more chocolate chip cookies and more chocolate ice cream than it would take to sustain an eight-hundred pound gorilla in the mating season. Things go from bad to worse as Rose heads for the refrigerator one night, again, and trips over Ritchie --- dead. A huge carving knife sticking out of his chest, from Rosie's own set in the butcher block on the countertop. The police are sure it's her; opportunity, motive, and weapon ... open and shut. but what appears the end for poor Rosie, is only the beginning, as Rosie takes off on her own to finger the real murder, and the real reason why, in this irresistibly witty action adventure. In the end, Rosie finds out what she's been missing, after all these years. Ms Isaac's superbly packs together all the right stock in this novel; love, sex, romance, greed, lust, passion, power, and murder. Whether your being amazed at the heroine's courage and brilliance, gritting your teeth in horror, thrilled with her unpretentious charm or laughing uproariously at her wit --- this is a nonstop read behind closed doors."
