Single mother Roz has reached her breaking-point. After the dissolution of her marriage, Roz’s business has gone under, debts are racking up, the rent is late, and she's struggling to provide for her son, who is misbehaving in school. Roz gets an eviction notice, she knows it’s time for action - she has two weeks to find a solution or they will be kicked out of their home. Increasingly desperate, Roz doesn’t know where to turn. At her sister’s fortieth birthday party, Roz meets Scott Elias - wealthy, powerful, and very married. But the impression Roz leaves on him is indelible. He tracks her down and makes Roz an offer to spend the night with him - for money. He wants no-strings-attached intimacy and can guarantee total discretion. With that kind of cash, Roz is forced to do things she never thought herself capable of.

Praise for The Mistake I Made:
"[Daly] has a real gift for mixing insightful writing on domestic life with a suspenseful premise. Her entertaining asides on relationships, as well as interesting information on physical therapy and spot-on depictions of workplace dynamics, are as engrossing as her intriguing plot. This is sure to delight her growing fan base." —Booklist
