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. (Nov.)
