“In a dark place she kept behind a locked door, she worried
that it was too late to mend the tears in the fabric of her marriage…” No Perfect Secret, Jackie Weger

No Perfect SecretBook Synopsis 

Anna Nesmith has it all—enchanting looks, a great job, an exquisite home, a husband she should adore. Then Frank Caburn arrives at her door in the midst of a winter storm. He was hatless, dripping wet, and exuding testosterone so thick it could’ve been churned into butter. An internal investigator for the State Department, Caburn insists the questions he has for Anna about her husband, her finances, and her personal life are merely routine.
Anna suspects differently. What she learns over the coming hours, days, and weeks shatters every facet of her well-ordered life. Her confidence plunges, her husband doesn’t come home, her dream job has to be put on hold, and her mother-in-law comes unhinged. All she wants to do is indulge in her misery, but Frank Caburn won’t have it. He has a droll and infuriating sense of humor. He forces laughter from her lips when all she wants is to indulge her misery. Man to the bone, Caburn’s smile could take him from a cocktail hour to a bedroom, but he finds Anna enduring, unassailable, and far too intelligent to be swayed by mere charisma. He wants off the investigation. But his boss is a rock, and his colleague is a hard place, and both have their own agendas. Caburn is on his honor to do the right thing. He knows the secret and is forbidden to reveal it. Yet, he’s promised Anna he will always tell her the truth. He realizes he will have to tread very carefully to gain her trust—and her bed.
Coping with one disaster after another, Anna longs to lean on Caburn, absorb his strength, and yes, she wants to release her pent-up passion. She feels like some mad god is urging her to go to bed with the man, enjoy it, and then get on with her life. But that isn’t what the Fates have in mind … .

Book Review of No Perfect Secret

If I could fill the page with a multitude of “wows” followed by a paragraph or two packed with compliments, I still wouldn’t be able to write a review to adequately praise No Perfect Secret by Jackie Weger. Not only was I completely blown away by this literary powerhouse, but I was also pleasantly surprised by the ending Ms. Weger crafted.

Let me explain.

I’m one of those people who can’t stand to see a good movie end.  Same is true of a well written novel. I anticipate the final page and the very last line, always optimistic, but sometimes not quite satisfied with the finale.
Jackie Weger, however, never failed to disappoint.
From the first chapter right down to the final line, Ms. Weger went above and beyond a writer’s call. With a clever end, No Perfect Secret  left this reader longing for another Jackie Weger novel. Still, I was perfectly content with the way the writer wrapped up everything nice and tight like a well presented package topped with beautiful ribbons and an expensive bow.
As the blurb suggests, Anna Nesmith has everything a woman could want. Minus an annoying mother-in-law, Anna has a life most would envy, but as secrets unravel, Anna discovers her life is anything but what it seems.
When Frank Caburn enters her life, he could easily complicate things in a hurry. Instead, he uses his career and position to help Anna cope with the ramifications of a bad marriage and a husband who not only left her to deal with his wayward ways, but also the embarrassment of having his unscrupulous secrets revealed.

From the well appointed comic relief to the building suspense, No Perfect Secret raises the bar for intrigue, mystery and a tender sweet romance. Jackie Weger writes a brilliant romantic suspense. Liquid Silver Books just landed a superstar.
