Product Description

Anna Nesmith believes she has it all--a great marriage, a dream job and a home of her own. When an investigator begins asking questions, Anna's ordered world crashes like Jenga blocks. Frank Caburn is man to the bone and manufactures testosterone like Frito Lay does chips, which seems not to impress Anna one whit as she picks through the rubble of her shattered life. Attracted to Anna, Caburn determines to make her his own--But how to tell her without tripping over a layer of secrets is beyond him. Falling in love has never been more difficult.

A story about second chances and picking up the pieces when a blow you never saw coming shatters your life.

If you're looking for steamy sex and plenty of lust, or a slow build of tension until an explosive, this isn't that kind of book.

The shattering of Anna's life happens slowly, like a chip that becomes a crack and then a web until the whole structure falls apart. Hell, it takes almost a third of the book before you find out what exactly has happened to Kevin - and what he's done. Not to say nothing happens, though - all is slowly revealed through Frank's investigations...and the other events in Anna's life.

Oh, so hard to review this without spoilers!

A brilliant book with a mature heroine, a bloke who's no hero though he aspires to be one, and the pursuit of happiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful romance with a twist 5 October 2014
By L.A. Lewandowski - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a delightful book. I have not read an engaging romance in quite a long time, and this reminded me why I had always enjoyed the genre. The pages overflow with well developed characters. I particularly liked the heroine, Anna, and the travel master, Mr. Charles. Even the secondary characters came alive. I can highly recommend this book.

*spoiler alert*
Anna is a successful, bright research librarian at the Library of Congress. Her nasty mother-in-law lives with her, and her narcissistic husband is a document carrier for the U.S. government. (Frankly, I would like to smack Anna's mother-in-law upside the head. She is a mean, manipulative woman.) Anna functions as a caregiver for this awful women.
The plot begins to develop as we realize something has happened to Kevin, the husband. His death sets in motion a string of events, and we soon find out he is a liar and a bigamist. There is a silver lining in the storm clouds, however, and an investigator named Frank Caburn shows up at Anna's door on an icy Washington D.C. day. Frank is the polar opposite of her cheating husband, and he is charged with gathering information about her husband and taking care of her. As Anna peels back the onion of her husband's deceit she lets go of the repressive mentality that has controlled her.
I hope the author will honor my request for a future story that includes some of these characters. My only disappointment was that Clara-Alice, the mother-in-law, didn't have more of a comeuppance. She disgusted me.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is definitely a MUST READ!!!!! 9 March 2015
By CINDY F. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Now this is one heck of a fantastic book! At times I wanted to bawl my eyes out for Anna and what her so-called husband put her through, and other times I laughed so hard, I cried!. And her mother-in-law???? She deserved way more than she got, that's for sure. What a whack job! I loved every single second of this book, and was so sad when it ended. Not that the ending is sad, because it's not. I'm just sad to see it end because I hated to leave all the quirky characters behind.

I loved that the author gave us just enough heat, but then left us to use our own imaginations to lead us wherever it may go. I found that very, very refreshing. She gave us interesting characters....some were quirky and fun...some were on the more serious side, but all with real depth to them. This book also had a really interesting story line, and the author throws in a bundle a laughs along the way, too. What more can you ask for?.

I am so glad that Anna didn't lay down and let her husbands betrayal affect her future. She was shocked and hurt at first, who wouldn't be, but she dug in and stood tall right to the end. I loved the fact that even though she was going through such a horrible ordeal, she could still laugh.

And Frank??? What a dream boat. If I ever needed someone to stand by my side...I want someone just like Frank. There's a man with a heart of gold, if ever there was one. That man was a real class act, for sure.

I loved the snarky character of Helen ( the office Mgr.), and the way she blasted Frank every chance she got. Her little snide remarks were hilarious! She's who I can most relate to right now, but I truly want to be Lila when I grow older. That woman is so feisty and she sure knows how to live. She's adventurious, she not afraid to her mind, she's the life of the party, and she's a real hoot, too!

JoJo and Clarence - what a great pair, they both added so much colour and humor to this novel. I could clearly picture Frank's reactions to these two, and I'm still laughing just thinking about it now.

This book is so good, I'll be teling all my friends and family to pick this book up. I highly recommend all of you to do the same thing. I assure won't be sorry you did, believe me!

3.0 out of 5 stars No Perfect Secret 24 November 2014
By PinkieFairy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book was ok. It kept me entertained. I sympathized with the female protagonist, There were also a few comical parts which made me chuckle at times. Also the eclectic array of characters was very interesting. However I did feel that there could have been more to the story. There were some parts that felt unnecessary and then there were other things that I felt were left out. I wish there had been more pat details of the male protagonist. What threw me off a bit as well was the number of grammatically errors which made me have to reread certain parts.

2.0 out of 5 stars "No Perfect Secret" starts off with intrigue 4 March 2015
By Cici - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"No Perfect Secret" starts off with intrigue, beautiful people, complex characters and a mystery. Something has happened to Anna's husband, and the State Department is taking unusual steps to handle this crisis. What crisis? Well, you have to read more to find out. And read some more, and some more more ........... They are protecting Anna by withholding details, and the author withholds details from the reader, as well. A good way to build suspense, but when we are finally aware of what was going on, I thought it fell flat. The build up had me expecting so much more. I won't tell what the 'problem' is, so you can enjoy the build-up and suspense, which was the best part of the book. Actually, one of the reasons I kept reading this book was to find out if there was more to the story of what happened to Anna's husband.

Overall, the story hits a lot of different genre. Mystery, Intrigue, romance, teen-aged angst, (no teens in the book, but often characters behaved as a teenager might) And occasionally something was amusing, and often with obscure word usage or words thrown in. Like saying someone was "in thrall with ..." I looked it up, and it could be considered correct, but the more common usage would be "enthralled with ....". Or "fumarole" I know it sent me to a dictionary. It just made me feel the author was showing off her "esoteric" vocabulary, and it was a bit pretentious. Once the big mystery is out, things start going in a different direction, and while various plot devices are approached, none are fully used, and it is just a matter of getting through it. But I was left wondering why I cared about completing it - my obsessive 'finish what you start' I guess.

Sorry - for me the book in its entirety just fell flat. The author has potential, but it needs to be better directed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the story but... 6 February 2015
By Mom N - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the story, and unlike several critics, actually read it to the end without skipping pages. That said, I feel it could benefit from a blue-pencil wielding editor. There are multiple typos, which I find aggravating. Additionally, the author likes to play with words. Fortunately, my Kindle has a dictionary built in, so I could check out most definitions to figure out what the heck the writer was trying to say. In one instance, however, I've checked four different dictionaries and still have not found the definition for one of her words. In describing the appearance of one of the characters, she writes, "His face was anidian." Huh? Is this a word or a typo? Just found a definition of 'anidian' in the Merrian-Webster online dictionary. Definition of ANIDIAN of an embryo or fetus: formless : lacking differentiation

Some of the story's details just don't make sense. We're repeatedly told that Anna, the protagonist, is so smart, so intelligent. One really has to suspend belief that, 1) She accept the mother-in-law moving in 5 days after the wedding, 2) She'd put up with being stuck, mostly alone, with the overbearing monster-in-law for 10 years, while hubby travels the world. 3) She wants a baby so badly. Hubby was keeping a calendar to track her fertile days to avoid impregnating her. It never occurred to this "smart" woman to track her own fertility to help her conceive?

I enjoyed the story, and the oddball characters. Just wish writers would use editors and stop expecting spellcheck to do the job.
