In a shocking discovery, though, she realizes that things weren?t as they seemed and that she had been lied to and betrayed by those closest to her. Reeling from the shock? and the knowledge that Jared is still alive?Jordan resigns her State Department post and sets off in search of answers.

Though distrustful of each other, Jordan and Aaron join forces on a journey that takes them half a world away, and only steps ahead of grave peril.   As Jordan draws closer to finding the answers that have eluded her for a decade, larger questions remain: Can she reconcile her attraction to Aaron with her unresolved feelings for Jared, the only man she ever loved? Will the truth be too devastating to handle or finally set her free?   Will she have a chance at happiness at last? Thrilling, romantic, and impossible to put down, A Hidden Affair gives us a brave and relentless heroine who never gives up on her search for the truth. From Publishers Weekly What kind of man could fake his own death and then, for more than a decade, let his loved ones suffer? After such a betrayal, what woman would want him back? Meet erstwhile Cambridge University sweethearts Jared Short and Jordan Weiss, whose star-crossed odyssey continues in Jenoff's intriguing sequel to Almost Home. Following Jordan's discovery of Jared's apparent survival--and her own narrow escape from enemies still out to silence him--the plucky young diplomat chucks her State Department commission to seek closure. But instead of answers, what lies ahead on a perilous chase stretching from London to the Aegean are more conundrums. Along the way, Jordan encounters Ari Bruck, a seductive mystery man who might be a Mossad agent, and Nicole Short, an elegant blonde who apparently runs in the same circles as Jared. Despite some lazy writing and less than convincing plot elements, this thriller should keep romantic suspense fans hooked until its explosive climax.

From Booklist Jenoff picks up the story of federal agent Jordan Weiss from Almost Home (2009), after she has a bombshell dropped in her lap. Her college boyfriend Jared Short, dead for ten years, is not dead at all. He faked his death and went on the run because he discovered something he should not have ––threads of a secret plan that stretched across Europe and even into the U.S. State Department. Now that she knows he's alive, Jordan only wants to see him again. So she drops off the feds' radar, and uses gut instinct and a few scant clues and hints to try to track Jared down. Jordan crosses Europe following his last known connection, a mysterious woman named Nicole, who is also being tailed by Ari, an enigmatic private investigator, on suspicion of forgery charges. As Jordan and Ari follow the trail across the Mediterranean, they unveil a grand conspiracy in this dramatic, sweeping, and exciting sequel. --Hilary Hatton About the Author Pam Jenoff is the internationally bestselling author of The Kommandant’s Girl, The Diplomat’s Wife, and  Almost Home.  She received her Bachelor’s Degree in International Affairs from George Washington University, her Master’s Degree in History from Cambridge University and her Juris Doctor Degree in Law from the University of Pennsylvania.  A former Special Assist
