Nick Baxter, a FBI agent at the end of his career, has a job to do, investigate the widow Delgardie. Nick had it all planned, accidentally meet the widow, turn on the charm and presto he should have her eating out of his hands. Not all plans goes as planned, little did Nick know that the widow Delgardie comes as a package deal.

Shannon Delgardie, has come home to New Providence, Iowa, not only to lick her wounds after a disappointing marriage, but also to do her own investigation when she starts getting blackmailed by email. When the FBI turns up to do their own investigation, she is already one step ahead of them.


New Providence, Iowa is not surprised by the high jinks of Shannon; after all they have known her all her life. However when the new comer starts asking question, small town inventiveness kicks in, but will Nick find a ways to gain their trust in order to help Shannon, and will Shannon get over her distrust in time to help the people she loves. 


An absolutely hilarious read, if you like nosy friends, over eager alpha male and a mum that has more up her sleeves than sleeves, you will love J.L. Wilson’s BRILLIANT DISGUISE.


Nick a FBI agent on the last few months of his career is sent on what should be a fairly simple operation, he is however out maneuvered at every turn, by literally everyone in New Providence. When he finally meets Shannon, she brings out more in him, than just the need to overhaul her hard drive.


Shannon is well equipped to deal with Nick; however as a woman with little faith in the power of trust, she enjoys the length at which he will go to get the information he needs from her, while she makes up her mind if he is worth everything she has to give.


Ms. Wilson’s New Providence is full of small town quirks and familiar rituals. The locals are loyal, argumentative and gets up to more than even the FBI gives them credit for. I absolutely fell in love with the town and I for one regretted having to leave.
