Blind Trust





Back Cover

Kate Adams had no idea she was carrying counterfeit money and can’t believe that it came from her sweet elderly neighbor.  Or that it has landed her in the middle of another of Detective Tom Parker’s investigations.  Determined to prove her neighbor’s innocence, Kate stumbles into a pit of intrigue far deeper than a two-bit counterfeit operation—and one that strikes too close to home for comfort.

As family secrets come to light, her world—and her budding romance with Tom—begin to crumble.  To Kate, it’s clear that she won’t be safe until she uncovers all of Port Aster’s secrets.  But then will it be too late for her and Tom?

Review

If you’ve read a few of my reviews, you know that I love suspense novels.  The exciting, keep you on the edge of your seat – don’t put that book down – type of novel.  The ones that grab your attention and never let you go!  I was excited to read Blind Trust as it also had other elements (romance, mystery, family secrets) to really round out a story.

Unfortunately, despite an exciting start, Blind Trust didn’t quite live up to my expectations.  The suspense fell a little flat, and while the storyline did keep me guessing, it didn’t have the “thrill” factor I was looking for.  I also had trouble connecting with the characters; but, that could be due to the fact that this is book #2 in the “Port Aster Series”, and I haven’t read book #1. 

In the end, while the novel sounded really promising, it didn’t quite hit my favourites list.  Perhaps book #3 will have the 10/10 thrill factor I was hoping for!  =)
