This One is Mine Synopsis

Violet Parry is living the quintessential life of luxury in the Hollywood Hills with David, her rock-and-roll manager husband, and her darling toddler, Dot. She has the perfect life - but she's deeply unhappy. David expects the world of Violet but gives little of himself in return. When she meets Teddy, a roguish small-time bass player, Violet comes alive, and soon she's risking everything for the chance to find herself again. Also in the picture are David's hilariously high-strung sister, Sally, on the prowl for a successful husband, and Jeremy, the sportscaster savant who falls into her trap.

This One is Mine Press Reviews

'In this novel by the author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette, risks run high as emotions. We fell in love with well-off but unhappily-married heroine Violet, who falls for roguish musician Teddy' COSMOPOLITAN
