Trouble Down the Road

by Bettye Griffin
£9.99   paperback  Kensington Publishing (Dafina) (2010)

Trouble Down the Road by Bettye Griffin From the author of The People Next Door comes a smart, sexy new novel that peeks behind the curtains of one very complicated Florida cul-de-sac, where the neighbors are a little too close for comfort...
 
Suzanne and Brad Betancourt have a lot to be grateful for — their home, their children, and each other. They’ve even survived the fact that Brad’s ex-wife lives next door and Suzanne’s intrusive mother and siblings are just down the road. But Suzanne’s confidence unravels at Brad’s fiftieth birthday blowout, when young, voluptuous, neighbor Micheline brings a specially wrapped gift: herself. Suddenly, Suzanne feels like she’s the one having the midlife crisis...
 
Hoping to impress Brad, and ease family troubles that are already straining their relationship, Suzanne goes into business with a friend. But the endeavor stretches her too thin, leaving Brad hurt and alienated. Soon he begins to distance himself from her — moving right into the waiting arms of Micheline, who is all too ready to ditch her own husband.
 
Now, with marriages on the line across the neighborhood, Suzanne and Brad will have to question their notion of loyalty to one another — and to themselves.
