Fate Is Worth the Wait

(A clean, comical summer romance, based on actual events)

While in New Hampshire during her summer break from teaching, Rachel accepts a part-time job as a covert consumer (secret shopper), thinking it will be a fun way to earn some extra money while also seeing the sights. However, some of her assignments turn out to be so bizarre, she doubts she will be able to complete them…because she probably will die of embarrassment first.

Still, she’s never been the type to turn down a challenge.

During one of her most humiliating assignments in a supermarket, Rachel attracts the attention of Doctor Derek Silverton, who comes to her aid, unaware she’s merely playing a role to test the store’s personnel. The problem is, she can’t explain to him what she’s really doing because one of the rules of her job is never to divulge any information about it to anyone…no matter what.

After all, it’s called “secret” shopper for a reason.

And because of this, Rachel’s budding romance with the doctor quickly turns into a complicated…mess.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This novel is based on actual events I either personally experienced or witnessed during the 10-plus years I spent working in the secret-shopper industry for three different market-research firms. The names and locations have been changed…for obvious reasons.
