    This trilogy should have been combined into one long book! Readers may have a hard time remembering all the way back to books 1 and 2, which they read months ago.

    The plot was creative, though a bit complicated (especially if you only have vague memories of the previous books).

    Desperate Measures is the third book in The Port Aster Secrets. I have not read the first books of the series but I was able to catch on quickly. This is a mystery that was so well written that I did not want to put it down. When I did, I could not wait to get back to it.

    The mystery is centered around a miracle plant. Kate's, the main character, father was directly involved in the development of this plant. There are so many twists with this story that the reader will keep guessing and will be continually surprised.

    There is also a Detective, Tom Parker, who is trying to solve the mystery around Kate. These two characters seem to dance around each other, so even in this the reader is continually guessing what is going to happen.

    The characters are well developed and believable and the descriptions throughout the book help to draw the reader into the story. This is a great book that I would encourage anyone that enjoys mysteries to read.

    I was given this book by Revell in exchange for my honest review.

    The sign of a good mystery is when you are absolutely positive you know the answer and then get to the end and say, "What . . . I never expected that!" Those were my feelings on Desperate Measures. I'm not going to say much about the story line so you won't know what the mystery was, but it was a good one. I was completely lead astray. I feel like I should apologize to several of the characters because I judged them so harshly.

    This series has taken a long time to wrap up (first book came out in June 2013) but it has been worth it. I enjoyed the lead character Kate Adams and found her job as a researcher to be fascinating. With the first book Deadly Devotion, I wasn't too taken with Detective Tom Parker, but he sure has grown on me.

    I would say that technically you could read Desperate Measures as a stand alone mystery. But why would you cheat yourself of the pleasure of the building suspense? I would recommend that you read the whole series starting with Deadly Devotion and then dive in to Blind Trust and finally rap it all up in Desperate Measures. Now that all three books are out I am completely jealous of those of you that get to read them in closer succession. I think you are in for a real treat.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    I am not usually a reader of suspense stories, but LOVE Author Sandra Orchard's Port Aster Secrets series. DESPERATE MEASURES, the third and final book in the series, is a satisfying conclusion to events that have happened in the previous books in addition to this third one. With very real characters, lots of action, twists, and turns, I found myself staying up way too late at night reading---I wanted to see what happened next! Sandra Orchard does a wonderful job of keeping the reader guessing. Besides the suspense and action, this book has romance and even bits of humor sprinkled in. I highly recommend the entire Port Aster Secrets series - - 5 stars!!
