The Devil's Playground by Eliza Freed

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: November 10, 2015
Number of pages: 290
Series: Faraway Series #1

Former U.S. Attorney, Meredith Walsh, took some time off to raise her children. But the time took away everything she once trusted about herself. She’s lost within the mundane confines of her children's schedules of lacrosse, soccer, Cub Scouts, and math facts. Desperate for a sliver of her former passion, and isolated in the small town her corporate husband relocated her to, she counsels herself on risking her family for the rush of a fling.

But Vincent Pratt, the local chief of police, weakens Meredith’s abhorrence of affairs and her dedication to her family. With him, she finds a new version of herself, one capable of contributing in her new world, and thriving in her lonely home. In spite of the fact, she’s not the kind of woman who has an affair.

What did I think about the this book:
This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it. This has the makings of a good new series to follow. The main character Eliza is a very real person she could be your person next door. At times I think a lot of women feel the same way she does but do not go to the extreme she does to get over the feeling. The author leaves you with a big cliffhanger and therefore leaves you wanting the second book right away but alas we will have to wait. In the meantime I will have to check out her other books.
