Wealthy socialite Calloway Wilde has had her share of adventures. Now her greatest one is about to begin. She has a wedding to plan. Sexy L.A. detective Evan Paley popped the question and she said yes. The sleuthy socialite is getting ready to settle down with the man she loves when she discovers that her rosy future has more than a few thorns on the vine. Evan has a part of his life he keeps hidden from Cally. And she may be Trump-tacularly rich but she’s as insecure as the next woman. When she overhears Evan having an oddly intimate conversation on the phone, Cally begins to have some doubts about her happily ever after.

To complicate things even more, her sexy detective is kidnapped from his home. Cally fears that whatever, or whomever, he is keeping quiet about will get him killed. Now Cally and a host of her friends and family must follow a trail of clues that lead to murder, money and corruption. Apparently, Evan has been keeping some huge secrets and Cally isn’t the only one he’s been hiding things from.

The Man She Thought She Knew is chick lit, contemporary romance, and suspense all rolled into one silk stocking. Shari Shattuck’s latest entry in the Calloway Wilde thriller series will leave you craving more. Like the smoothest chocolate can, The Man She Thought She Knew satisfies as it strengthens the craving. Richly layered the characters in TMSTSK are as real as a white chocolate cluster and just as sweet to savour.
