But leaving her old self behind proves harder than she ever imagined. She believes she should be happier, but misery still chases her, and motherhood threatens to consume her. Her only salve is Theresa, her best friend whose life she desperately covets. Their bond is tight, but it doesn't stop Jackie from having an affair with Theresa's husband, Adam. And when Theresa catches Jackie in the act, the consequences ripple far beyond the ruins of their friendship. Hot Springs Drive is a dark, heart-pounding exploration of one woman's deepest desires, and the lives she will destroy to satisfy them.
