THE ROME AFFAIR
by Laura Caldwell

Genre: Romantic Suspense, General Romantic Suspense

RT Rating

Combining business with pleasure initially makes sense to Rachel Goldin,
who takes a trip to Rome with her
friend Kit Kernaghan. Rachel's marriage
to plastic surgeon Nick Blakely has
been rocky since his recent infidelity, and her relationship with Kit has suffered lately too. But nothing goes as expected. Rachel's software sales pitch at an architectural firm isn't successful, and her plans with Kit go up in
smoke. While dining alone, Rachel meets a man --and spends the night with him.

Oddly, Rachel's fling strengthens
her bond with Nick. But something
else has changed too: Kit's suddenly
acting strangely, threatening to reveal Rachel's indiscretion and demanding money to keep silent. Sickened, Rachel complies -- until the situation spirals out of control and there's much more
at stake than her marriage.

Caldwell expertly plucks at the
reader's nerves, building dread and doubt at a slow but deliciously inexorable pace. Almost Hitchcockian in its
execution, this novel has the feel of a '50s film noir. (Jun., 384 pp., $6.99)
