‘The Verifiers’ Book Review by Jane Pek

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Verifiers  has mystery, romance, and dating with modern technology.

It’s a new twist about contemporary love driven from a dating app!

A sleuth novel – The Verified – has a detective looking into applicants on a dating app for those on a quest for love, but the tides turn and she’s needing the investigative work.

The Verifiers by Jane Pek is not a romance in the traditional sense, but it has so much to say about modern love and technology’s hand in it that it belongs in this newsletter. It is also hilarious; any book that makes me ROFL gets a moment in the spotlight.
“The pig should be the Chinese national animal. Every time I let my mother know that I’m coming over, she asks me what I want her to cook. A few years ago, Caroline told me that our mother had never asked her or Charles that question; since then, I’ve always requested my siblings’ favorite dishes. Guilt is the currency that our family traffics in.”
Claudia works for Veracity, a detective agency hired to verify the truths and lies in online dating profiles. Claudia is a “verifier.”; a fact checker for the lovelorn. A fan of detective novels, she is often gleaning her next investigative step by asking herself what Detective Yuan, from her favorite detective series, would do.
