Law office manager Carol Frank thinks that her life couldn’t get much better until her boyfriend, Detective Augustus “Gus” Haglund, asks her to go undercover for a week.
Though Carol’s friends and family had been pushing for a marriage proposal, detective work is the second-best thing Gus can offer. Always a fan of detective stories, Carol jumps at the chance to act as temporary secretary to Nathan Walsh, a real estate attorney who may be using his practice as a cover.
Once Carol is in place, she learns that there is more happening at this firm than even Gus seemed to realize, and that she is not the only detective on the case. Brash insurance investigator Jim Loredo suspects that another attorney, egomaniac Kristen Rogers, is either in big trouble or is the cause of it, and the more Carol learns, the more she agrees with him. Too bad she can’t convince Gus of the same – yet when Carol discovers that Gus is withholding important information about the case, including his own possible connections to Nathan Walsh, she begins to wonder exactly who is telling her the truth.
As Carol navigates the labyrinth of her undercover job, she must fend off the advances of a sex-crazed septuagenarian, the wrath of a quick-tempered drama queen, and the endless phone calls of a germ-phobic “helicopter” mom in the next cubicle. Lucky for Carol, she has the support of her best friend attorney Bill Nestor, who is never too busy to come to the rescue.
What should an undercover secretary do when she thinks she’s watching the wrong suspect? How does a secretary avoid being tagged as a “computer whiz?” How many instructions does it take to make a ham sandwich? Why is it so hard to find enough chairs for an important meeting? Exactly how many more outfits can Carol stand to lose to violent crime? These, and many other questions, will be answered when Carol Frank discovers, My Boss is a Wanted Woman.
My Boss is a Wanted Woman is the third book in the romantic mystery Boss series by Christina Harlin, following My Boss is a Serial Killer and My Boss is a Dead Man.
