The Devil’s Playground 

by Eliza Freed 
(The Faraway Series, #1) 
Publication date: November 10th 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


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.

Meredith was a very driven attorney, she married Brad who is a 
corporate businessman. They have 2 children when Brad decided to relocate them to a small town. 

Meredith's life revolves around her children and their schedules when she realizes she is unhappy with her life. 
Meredith meets Vincent the local police chief and everything changes. She feels like she is living again. Their is an immediate attraction between Vincent and Meredith. Will they risk everything to be together, or stay in their current situations and just live their lives.

I suggest reading this book to follow Meredith on her journey weather it's right or wrong. The moral of the story should be that you only live once so live it to the fullest.

I received this book as an ARC for a honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Stacy Aube for Cutting Muse Blog Review.


Eliza Freed graduated from Rutgers University and returned to her hometown in rural South Jersey. Her mother encouraged her to take some time and find herself. After three months of searching, she began to bounce checks and her neighbors began to talk; her mother told her to find a job.

She settled into Corporate America, learning systems and practices and the bureaucracy that slows them. Eliza quickly discovered her creativity and gift for story telling as a corporate trainer and spent years perfecting her presentation skills and studying diversity. It’s during this time she became an avid observer of the characters we meet and the heartaches we endure. Her years of study have taught her laughter is the key to survival, even when it’s completely inappropriate.

She currently lives in New Jersey with her family and a misbehaving beagle named Odin. An avid swimmer, if Eliza is not with her family and friends, she’d rather be underwater. While she enjoys many genres, she has always been a sucker for a love story…the more screwed up the better.
