it was amazing

Jenoff writes in the afterward of this book that the story started in “Almost Home” was to have ended with that first book. Later, she felt the rest of the story needed to be told. Hence, “A Hidden Affair.” She puts a little romance, a little mystery, a few secrets and surprises along the way.

Ex-state department intelligence officer Jordan Weiss is on the trail of a college boyfriend, Jared Short, who supposedly died ten years previous. She has discovered he has faked his death and close friends have lied and betrayed her. Tracking Jared to an address in Monaco, she first meets a mysterious woman named Nicole who has a connection to Jared. She promptly disappears. Next she meets Aaron Bruck, an Israeli with his own reasons for finding Nicole. Together, Jordan and Aaron travel Europe, following leads and becoming romantically involved. But what secrets will both uncover about Nicole and Jared and how will Jordan solve the problem of her attraction to Aaron as opposed to her still lingering feelings for Jared?

Jenoff provides a little background from the first book and I appreciated that information. The first person narrative was also a nice change because I enjoyed the perspective from one character and how she sees the other people and the world around her. This book has the requisite romantic scenes along with the emotional self doubt. This was a very nice read.
