Product description

Product Description

When Gina Beaufort Kelly’s husband leaves her for a woman young enough to be his daughter, Gina doesn’t get mad... she gets even.

Or at least she tries to, by targeting David’s assets in the divorce. She spent eighteen years of her life with him; it’s only fair that he should compensate her accordingly.

However, David doesn’t agree, and when he ends up dead, on the evening before they were set to go before the judge, the police suspect foul play—and suspect that Gina’s behind it.

Now this jilted wife must figure out who else wanted her soon-to-be-ex-husband dead—and why—before she loses everything in the process, including her freedom.

I've just finished reading this amazing book that kept me in suspense, wondering, second guessing, that book was 'Ditching David'. This was my introduction into books by Jenna Bennett & I'm left speechless by awe, what an introduction this book was. I was sucked into the story, which held me captive until the last word. This is Gina's story, she shines, grows, becomes more than a trophy wife... such a powerful statement for women who have been replaced by their spouses.

Gina's world is turned upside down, when her husband of 18 years tells her he's found someone new, a 25 year old, & he's leaving right away. The day before the divorce is finalised, David dies in what at first appears to be an accident. Within the week leading upto the funeral all manor of things happen, unveiling so many lies hidden away from Gina.

I'm not sure I could have handled half of what Gina did, with as much grace without blowing my lid. I truely lost myself within this book, feeling hurt & betrayed on behalf of Gina. 'Dithcing David is book 1 in Jenna's new series "Fidelity Investigation" I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next one! 9 January 2015

40-year-old Gina Kelly's world collapses around her when her husband David asks for a divorce. He's seeing a much younger woman and wants his freedom. Although Gina didn't see it coming, a small part of her isn't surprised since he dumped his first wife for her when Gina was an impressionable 22-year-old. When she finds out David tricked her (I loved how she got tripped up by that clause in the prenup!), and she could lose everything in the divorce, she makes statements to her lawyer about wanting to kill him. When David turns up dead, and a handsome homicide detective turns up at her door, she knows she'd better find out who murdered her husband before she ends up behind bars.

Ditching David by Jenna Bennett is the first book in the new Fidelity Investigations Mystery Series. I love Ms. Bennett's writing style and enjoy all her books. This one is no exception. I loved meeting these new characters. Gina, our protagonist, is warm, funny, strong, and intelligent. There is also a sadness to her--as time goes on she realizes she is alone in the world with no family or friends to turn to. Ms Bennett is extremely talented when it comes to writing strong male leads (Rafe!!!!), and I'm looking forward to seeing more of Detective Jaime Mendoza.

This mystery has a tight, well-written plot with likable characters. I didn't figure things out until very near the end--and then Ms. Bennett threw in one more twist to keep her readers glued to the pages. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Happy reading!

I'm a huge fan of Jenna Bennett's Savannah Martin series and was excited to see this new book; however, I didn't expect it to be so good! In fact, I started reading the book after midnight when it arrived on my Kindle, and I didn't stop until I finished the entire thing. Good thing I'm retired! What great characters Jenna has developed in just one book. It looks as though this will be the start of a new series, and this first story sets the series up perfectly. The plot was intriguing, and the resolution of the murder mystery was surprising. No romance yet, but perhaps a hint of something to come?? Jenna Bennett, you've done it again, and I continue to be one of your biggest fans!!

I loved this book! David, Gina Kelly's husband of 18 years, announces to her shortly after her 40th birthday that he's leaving her for a 25 year old. The day before they are due in divorce court, David is killed in what first appears to be an accident, but is soon revealed to be murder. Handsome and sexy homicide detective Jaime Mendoza makes it clear that, since Gina had the most to gain by David's death, she is the most obvious suspect. Desperate to prove her innocence, Gina embarks on her own investigation of all of the other possible suspects, including David's mistress, hostile children, ne'er-do-well brother, first wife, business partner...and so on. Gina is not only a sympathetic and humorous heroine, but an intelligent and resourceful one, who handles both awkward social situations and near-brushes with death with aplomb. I can hardly wait for the next book in the Fidelity Investigations Mystery series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ditch David and cozy up to Gina 9 January 2015
By Stuffing's Mommy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What I love the most about this book is that while there is flirtation and definitely like between Gina and Jaime, there is no relationship and he doesn't come riding in on his stallion to save the day.

Gina has been cheated on and left for a woman young enough to be her husband's daughter and is then framed for his murder. What follows is Gina having to put on her thinking cap and figure out who else would want him dead before she ends up in jail. Along the way we meet a great cast of secondary characters who provide a list of suspects for us to figure out a motive and work along with Gina to guess who. While solving her husband's murder, she finally gets to use her brain that she put on the shelf for 18 years of marriage.

I am looking forward to solving my cases and watching Gina grow into her own person.

There are twists, turns, laughs and a great cozy mystery to cuddle up to.

I've read every Savannah Martin book and loved them all. I had the chance to read the first three chapters on this before purchase and was not disappointed. This book is a keeper and an excellent start to a new series. Gina Kelly finds out her husband has a much younger girlfriend and he wants a divorce, she reacts by following him. Her dry humor and inner thoughts about the homicide detective Mendoza had me chuckling. When her husband David is murdered, she goes to the spa for a facial and hair color. He liked her blond and she was a natural redhead. Since everyone thinks she killed David, she realizes she has to find his killer so she can stay out of prison. How she goes about this is funny and only because she's really innocent can she muddle through this. Plus, she doesn't realize how great looking she is even at 40. I enjoyed the characters and want to see more.
