The Naked Truth is a work of light women’s fiction, romance, and drama penned by author Maggie Aldrich. Written for adults due to its inclusion of some steamy sexual moments, this interesting tale subverts the romance genre by presenting our central heroine as a happy newlywed still in the throes of romance with her new hubby Michael. The only problem for Emily is that the rest of her world is threatening to fall apart, with the revelation that her dead parents may be alive after all. Using her honeymoon as a foil to investigate their supposed reappearance, this is a comedic cozy mystery of a woman trying to keep it all together and search for the truth.

Readers seeking a delightful and entertaining work of chick lit are certain to fall in love with Emily’s zany story and the colorful cast of characters whom she meets along the way. I particularly enjoyed Fritz and the chaos and nonsense he causes throughout the tale, and romance fans will enjoy those interludes where Michael takes over the plot for some moments of passion. Author Maggie Aldrich has a compelling and realistic narrative style that really brings Emily to life and is genuinely enjoyable to read for its comedic twists and snappy dialogue. The emotional component is present but not too deep, keeping the mystery light and fun right up to the final moment of truth. Overall, The Naked Truth is a well-written novel sure to please fans looking for an amusing and kooky mystery.
