An irreverent thriller about
one housewife’s descent into madness.
It’s time to break the rules!
My name is Roxy Davenport and
I’m part of a dying breed: I’m the perfect housewife.
My whole life, I’ve tried to
follow the rules of previous, “wiser” generations. High school sweethearts must
marry (check!), the wife must stay home to look after the children (check!),
all married couples must procreate and raise 3.2 children (demerit – we only
managed one – oops!).
But it turns out all the
while, my husband has been playing by his own rules…and playing around.
So screw him! I’ve chucked
the handbook out the window. He has no idea what’s coming for him. And my
perfect neighborhood will never be the same again.

Little does he know his ability to play nothing more than caretaker until she's back on her feet is nothing more than smoke and mirrors.
Will holiday hearts awaken to passion and new love, or will Zach and Natalie let this chance at new love pass them by?
