The book was inspired by Brodys time in an office job, where company functions and happy hours revealed that some of her co-workers werent as loyal as they should be. They were on the phone going, Oh yeah, Im going home soon, honey, and then theyd hang up and do things that werent appropriate, she says. Brody disagreed with what she saw but knew there was nothing she could do. I could never call up a total stranger and tell them their husband is cheating on them, she says.
Many can relate. Although most people would want to know if their guy or gal is cheating, no one wants to be the bearer of bad news. So, I created this character
She always tells, thats her thing. This, of course, isnt always easy. Aside from having to watch marriage after marriage fall apart after she reveals what she knows, Jennifer also develops a distrust toward all men something Brody can relate to or at least could. Im in a long-term relationship, Brody says. Id like to think Ive gotten to a better place now, a more trustful place.
