The Tangled Web by Lacey Dearie

Have you ever wondered who that weirdo with the fake profile on Facebook is, and what they’re up to? This chick-lit mystery explains it all.

Meet Vicky: Single mother, aspiring novelist, undertaker….and glamorous, seductive private investigator. She and trainee plumber Flic, forge the perfect partnership. They trap cheaters, report back to the wives and girlfriends, rake in the cash and then Vicky blogs about it all. The best thing about their job is it’s all done online, so it won’t interfere with their real lives and relationships.

Well, that was the plan.

What they didn’t count on was their first investigation being turned around on them so that they were the ones being investigated and written about – in a national newspaper. Soon, their loved ones want a piece of their secret lives and they discover that Vicky’s family are less than helpful as sidekicks. Her goofy brother Adam discovers the real reason why Flic wants justice for women virtually scorned and invites the woman who destroyed Flic’s happiness five years ago to become a client, with catastrophic consequences for all involved in the business, while Vicky’s gobby sister Pamela is given a fake assignment to trap Christos, Vicky’s confidante, to keep her out of the way and makes an unsavoury discovery about him in the process.
