Review: A Cunning Plan

Cunning 3D

Determined to put her family back together, Sloane Harper stalks her ex husband and his annoyingly stunning mistress, Kate Stappleton. But she’s not the only one.

Handsome IRS agent Ethan Cunning is surveying Kate too, but for entirely different reasons. He is attempting to nail Kate’s playboy boss.

Ethan and Sloane decide to help each other, which sends Sloane’s wobbly life spinning out of control. She’ll have to face danger, humiliation, and – scariest of all – the dating scene, to lure her daughters’ father home.
Losing control was the best thing to happen to Sloane…until it turned lethal.


I really enjoyed this book. Romantic comedy is one of my favorite genres so I was pleased to have the chance to read the book. I think the reason I enjoyed it so much is because of the heroine. I was hooked when she was straightening out her panties in the car (she was in the car because she was stalking her ex-hubands’s new girlfriend) and looked up to find a strange man watching her. Ordinarily I don’t guess it would make any difference what he saw, but in this case she’s going to have a whole lot more interaction with him.
I also loved the housekeeper who hung out with our heroine when she was stalking the girlfriend. The ex-husband: so not worth the stalking or heartache.
Of course, there are some pretty tense moments in the book too, but I’ll let you discover those for yourself. Just be aware that when you read the last couple of lines in the book, you’re gonna smile.

    Sounds interesting! The blurb makes it sound more like a romantic suspense, so I was surprised to see you refer to it as a comedy. I do enjoy both genres, so I’d probably like it either way.

    sounds like a fun story and a very interesting premise.


  3. Always up for a romcom, Elaine.You didn’t have to tel me that the husband wasn’t worth the heartache!
