Last Chance at Love

Gwynne Foster

Bet, Aug 2004, $6.99, 302 pp.

ISBN: 1583145346

The Journal Editor Bill Jenkins assigns reluctant reporter Allison Wakefield to dig up skeletons on author Warren Jacob Covington. Allison does not want to be a muckraker, but knows that scandals are what keep the Journal afloat. She decides that she will do the investigative piece, but not destroy the impeccable reputation of the man, although she knows Jenkins will not be pleased.

Allison tries her hand at being an undercover sleuth as she trails her target, who proves to be very elusive and attractive while on a book tour. She finally encounters Jake in Idlewood Lake, Michigan, and finds she wants him as much as he desires her. However, she digs up an incredible story about his work as an undercover State department operative, but exposing him could cause harm to many people, besides being illegal.

Gwynne Foster always comes through with a fabulous tale of love and her latest will elate readers due to the strong ethically-inclined lead couple and the real headlines backdrop. The storyline centers on the romance, but her assignment and his other occupation make a permanent relationship seem impossible. Ms. Foster's fans will appreciate the moral dilemma facing Allison as she must decide what is right even if that might cost her a lifetime of happiness. The headlines expos involves someone in the Administration illegally giving the name of an operative to the media over a year ago with no one arrested. Thus the audience sees a "real" scenario from the media perspective (did the reporters really need to release the name?) and from the operative's point of view, without losing sight of the romance. Great work once again by a sure shot author.
