Can a former fidelity inspector tear herself away from her old calling for the sake of the perfect guy, or is the temptation to conduct love under cover just too strong?
Jennifer Hunter never saw herself as the relationship type. After all, she'd spent the last two years of her life as an undercover fidelity inspector, hired to test men's faithfulness—not exactly the kind of job that lends itself to intimacy. But when Jamie Richards walked into her life, everything changed, and Jennifer vowed to trade in her undercover lifestyle for something more normal. That's why she formed the Hawthorne Agency: five full-time fidelity inspectors, hired to carry out Jennifer's mission while she manages the process from a safe (relationship-saving) distance. Jen's business is booming, and just when it seems like things can't possibly get any better, Jamie proposes. Despite her lifelong issues with trust and commitment, Jen says yes. But can a woman who's seen nothing but failed marriages ever come to terms with tying the knot herself? And when Jen receives a frantic phone call from one of her employees in trouble, she's forced to make a choice. A choice that lands her in an all-too familiar place—a strange hotel room, kissing another man. And she knows that nothing will be the same.
In this second tale of Jennifer Hunter, fidelity inspector, author Brody ("The Fidelity Files") puts her heroine in a questionable romance of her own. While Jennifer, head of the Hawthorne Agency, directs her associates to sniff around on behalf of suspicious spouses, she's also having anxiety attacks over her impending marriage to Jamie, her boyfriend of a year. The child of a chronic philanderer, Jennifer is afraid to believe in her own happily ever after and isn't sure she could stop testing her beau's fidelity even if she wanted to. As an unexpected mistake blossoms into a thicket of lies, Jennifer must decide whether or not she can stick with the business she's worked so hard to build. With a complicated, sympathetic protagonist, worthy stakes and a clever twist on the standard chick lit narrative, Brody will pull readers in from the first page. "" .
