Product Description

Kate Adams had no idea she was carrying counterfeit money, and she can't believe that it came from her sweet neighbor. Or that it lands her in the middle of another one of Detective Tom Parker's investigations. Determined to prove her neighbor's innocence, Kate stumbles into a pit of intrigue that is far deeper than a two-bit counterfeit operation--and 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 is it too late for her and Tom?

    As the author's disclaimer says, Bind Trust is best read as the second book in the series. Having said that, it does read well as a standalone, however obviously acts as a spoiler to the mystery in the first book.

    I think Orchard has created a new genre...suspestry? Or myspense? A suspense/mystery hybrid. :-) Whatever you want to call it, this is a page-turning read. The author's detail-oriented, steel-trapped mind is scary! How she keeps everything straight as she weaves the current plot and overall series arc together is beyond me. I'm just glad she does! Honestly, my mind was reeling by the end of the book. And the end? Sob, more of a cliff hanger!

    Kate and Tom are back dancing around a relationship. One step forward, two steps back. That's all right, I know they are destined for each other. Can't wait until the next book to follow their romance to it's rightful conclusion.

    If you like a good mystery with a liberal dose of suspense and dashes of humour and light romance then Blind Trust is definitely the book for you!

    Blind Trust is the second in the Port Aster Series, and although I didn't read the first one-yet, I was able to follow along and enjoy the story and the characters.

    The story begins with Kate paying for groceries for Verna, her elderly neighbor, and that money turning out to be counterfeit. How could that be? Certainly that sweet little old lady had nothing to do with it, but then there is a long list of suspicious characters that keep you not only turning pages, but on edge as you try to figure out what comes next. I was quite surprised to find the identity of the supposed stalker, and also kept me wondering just how much he could be trusted.

    Besides the cast of cagey characters, there is the man of Kate's dreams, Tom, a detective, and she is once again front and center in one of his investigations. Although it would be nice to know more about the case spoken of, you can read and enjoy this story without knowing all the ins and outs of what came before. There is lots of gentle touches, stolen glances, and wishing going on. This part is a nice light romantic read and a nice break from the action packed read. It is a breath of fresh air, a break from the fast pace.

    The ending certainly has left me anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. This was a quick read, as I could not put it down. I would stay up late as the one more chapter, just didn't cut it. Pick it up and see for yourself. I bet you won't be able to put it down either.

    I was given this book by Sandra Orchard and Revell book company in exchange for an honest review.

    My Comments

    I had been anticipating the sequel to Deadly Devotion for awhile so I was very pleased to read more about Kate's amateur sleuthing adventure. Even though the story didn't grab my full attention right away, I was eager to see what happened with Kate and Tom.

    The mystery and focus of the book takes off right away. Kate is shopping for her elderly neighbor when the clerk discovers the bills paid with are counterfeit ones, leading immediately to Kate getting into trouble. Tom shows up for the case and they begin their investigating.

    I really wanted to find out how Verna, Kate's neighbor, is involved this time. I knew there was no way she was guilty with the counterfeiting, but as always there's more to the story than we initially see.

    My favorite parts of the book were scenes with Verna, Verna's sweet cat, Tom, Tom's family, and especially Tom's dad.

    Kate now has a lab assistant that I suspected from the beginning, but even she was helpful getting Kate to work on time.

    I could NOT believe how many people want to sabotage Kate! Wasn't it enough that her best friend was killed in the first book? This woman just can't get a break. Even though the main plot of the story was finding who was responsible for the counterfeiting money, there were many twists and turns that I didn't see coming, whoa! It's amusing reading how Kate tries to follow Tom's instructions on safety, but somehow gets around those instructions. His patience and devotion to her is another reason I love this series.

    Tom is such an amazing character and only wants to do the right thing. The right thing for him is asking God to help him, doing his job by the book, and of course protecting Kate_..she is able to get into trouble faster than you can say, "Indiana Jones." (that line is from the movie Notting Hill, let me know if you remember what scene it comes from) I was surprised she didn't listen to Tom better (he really is only out for her best interest and her protection) and I was even more surprised that it takes more than half of the book for her to really trust him. On the other hand, she has been through a lot and regardless of their chemistry, she is also just trying to do what's right.

    The movie this book slightly resembles to me is The Firm. There's a company in the story that has caused so much death and destruction and seemingly has gotten away with it for the time being. If you get in their way or don't follow along, your character disappears from the picture quickly. Even the police have been killed or are unable to gather enough evidence to prosecute this company. So not cool_.

    An overall GREAT book that I did get into and had no idea which characters were guilty, even though I had my own suspects in mind. It would be so nice if these people would just let Kate live her life without the element of danger, but at the same time Kate gets to discover who really loves her in the midst in investigating. Minor spoiler___.it was wonderful reading Tom and Kate's first kiss. It's obvious that he's a goner for her and it's a treat watching their relationship develop. They have both had a close friend die and trauma because of that, but it's a treat seeing them rely on one another and slowly heal.

    I want to thank the author and Revell for sending me a review copy. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.
