Product Description

Product Description

Betrayed thrice over by her husband, Anna believes her imploded life will right itself if only she buys a dog. Investigator Frank Caburn has other ideas. Man to the bone and manufacturing testosterone like Frito Lay does chips, he is at once attracted to Anna. All he wants is to fall in love and be done with it. Anna Nesmith is the one. But how to tell her without tripping over a layer of lies is beyond him. Adding to Caburn's woe are his elderly bosses--both of whom who plan to keep their jobs until the Rapture or the sun burns out--whichever comes last, plus a cross-dressing dominatrix with OCD, a purple haired hacker on parole and Anna's back-stabbing mother-in-law. Falling 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 I Really Wish there were more stories written like this one! 21 October 2014
By julie whiteley - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
No Perfect Secret by Jackie Weger is a 2014 independent publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a deeply absorbing portrayal of a woman, Anna Nesmith who discovers her husband, Kevin, has betrayed her in multiple ways. This book will have you thinking twice about taking anything or anyone at face value. But, one deceitful person shouldn't have everlasting control over your life and you should never give them that power. Anna's journey is touching, and left me feeling warm all over and with a smile on my face.

When Anna learns her husband has been living a double life, his work in the state department makes things even more difficult. When Frank Caburn is assigned to look into this very delicate matter, he never expects to encounter Anna, a strong, beautiful woman trapped in a horrible marriage and about to discover it was all a big lie. Needing to tread carefully, Frank informs Anna a little at a time about her husband's activities. But, this not the only issue. Anna literally has the “mother-in-law from hell”, and then some. Good Lord! Even after all that has been heaped on Anna, she begins to slowly comes back to life finding herself feeling free and ready to shed all the terrible years she spent married to a creep and chained to her mother-in-law's will.
Anna could very well have folded , could have decided all men were like Kevin, could have allowed her anger to turn to bitterness. However, instead she finds Frank is the kind of man she was looking for all along. Frank was absolutely dreamy, just my kind of guy! A confident, attractive man with a good open heart who is willing to go all in to keep Anna safe, happy, and give her the chance of having the family she has always wanted.

This is truly an uplifting story and while the drama is heavy, there are poignant, grab the tissues, moments where Anna thinks of her mother and the support she would have offered. But, this story is not without the trademark Weger humor many of you are familiar with. The secondary characters give the story a lighter tone when it was needed and I especially liked Frank's work partner, Helen.
The story is devoid of immature angst and self absorption and shows how love can and should grow on an emotional level, giving the sensual aspects of the romance more meaning. I really wish there were more stories written like this one.

5 stars!

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars lovely romance with humour. 6 August 2013
By Jeannie Zelos - Published on

No Perfect Secret. Jackie Weger.

ARC supplied by Author.

Well, I've loved the first to books I've read of Jackie' so maybe I had too high expectations....I liked this book, enjoyed it but didn't quite have the love for it that I did the others. I'm not sure why as the cast of characters were great. Anna, there are thousands of wives like her, looking after elderly family members, working outside the home, keeping the household jobs done and providing backup for husbands while putting their own hopes and dreams on hold....I really felt for her. She gets a visit one day from Frank. Internal investigator fpr a state department. I'm sure they don't work the way they do in the book but hey - this is fiction and it makes the story far more interesting that if he simply phoned and sent numerous duplicated letters etc! He seems to work in a small dept, almost off grid, with lots of flexibility. That allowed him and his colleague Helen to spend lots of time with Anna sorting out the mess her husband had left. And he'd certainly been doing some dreadful deeds that left her well ordered life in tatters. Frank - the attraction between him and Anna is there from the start but they both dance around it, and its not til really far in the novel that they do get together. Jackie has some great expressions for male appendages... I loved "tally whacker" in the first one, dingus in the next then this time its Mr Johnson :) Helen, lady in control of the office, fabulous woman, knows what she wants from life and loves helping others, her tenants JoJo and Clarence - what a great pair, added so much colour to the novel. I think my favourite though (discounting Franks sex appeal) is neighbour Lila, in her nineties but the sort of lady I aspire to be one day, she drinks, enjoys life, laughs and is full of joie do vivre.

I got a bit confused over the storyline though, didn't really understand the political machinations of what Anna's husbands job was, he seemed top be some sort of diplomatic courier, which clearly allowed him to live his double life, leaving his mother -the mother in law from hell - with Anna. I think that part just wasn't strong enough for me - I didn't feel engaged with the actual story though I loved the characters, I'd love friends and neighbours like that. I loved the gentle way once again Jackie has woven the romance through the novel, starts slowly but right from the early part you can see that attraction is unstoppable, and then once they do get together its Jackie's characteristic well written sex scenes, sensual and racy but never smutty or overly "in your face" - what happens fits perfectly in the novel. That's a treat when so many novels seems to have badly written sex scenes just for the scandal and selling point. I love spice in my romance, not and steamy no problem, but it must fit the story and characters and must be well written.

Stars: four, loved the people but not so keen on the actual plot.

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.
