Alison Waxman Koff has it all – a successful husband, a huge house in an upscale Connecticut town and enough designer clothes in her closet to rival an entire floor at Saks. She’s living the Good Life – until the stock market crashes and her hubby announces he’s leaving her and going back to Wife #1. What’s a suburban princess to do?

Alison sells her furs and starts doing her own nails. When that’s not enough to keep her mansion from going into foreclosure, she falls back on her one marketable skill: cleaning houses. She’s always been a neat freak and now her little quirk comes in handy; she becomes a maid to a bestselling author of sleazy biographies, who’s in town to dig up dirt on a local luminary.

Between vacuuming carpets and scrubbing toilets, Alison suddenly finds herself the prime suspect in her employer’s murder. Now, in order to get herself off the hook, she must team up with architectural photographer Cullie Harrington, who lives on a sailboat and doesn’t pay any attention to the stock market and offers her the kind of security – and passion – she’s never known.

Suspense meets romance meets zany social satire in this hilarious novel about love and survival in a tough economy. Alison is a true heroine of our time as she scrambles to keep in step with a changing world – and to find love with a man who represents a whole new take on Prince Charming.
