A manual for catching unfaithful loves in their deceptions.
Frey and Alexander, founders of WomanSavers.com, explore the dark side of love, offering signs, tips and tools for dealing with love gone bad. Both women speak from experience—Alexander has cheated in the past, while Frey was once the “other woman.” The authors leave no stone unturned when it comes to outing a potential cheater, although their suggestions can border on unhealthy if not paranoid—e.g., “Take a photo of the bedroom or the room in question before you leave for the day” to see if anything is out of place upon your return. At times, their advice even walks a fine legal line. Tapping phone lines, for instance, is illegal in some states. Each chapter begins with a wonderful quotation and immediately launches into a “Cheat-Sheet Tale,” a personal account by a cheater. There are quizzes on everything from alibis your partner might offer to what kind of cheater he could be—there are four types. The book takes a more positive turn toward the end as the authors present ways to pick up the pieces, such as when to stay in a relationship and how to make a marriage affair-proof.
No earth-shattering discoveries, but helpful for those who suspect their mates are being less than forthright.
