Blind Trust ~ Review

Blind Trust 
Port Aster Secrets #2
By Sandra Orchard

Kate Adams is in trouble again and is once again caught up in another of Detective Tom Parker's cases when she passes counterfeit money. The only question in Kate's mind is is this an attempt by GPC or Molly Gilmore to discredit her.  

But nothing links the counterfeit money to either of Kate's suspects. But Kate manages to become the talk of Port Aster yet again when the local paper runs with the story.  And the only link to all the counterfeit money seems to be Kate's elderly neighbor Verna Nagy.  But Verna couldn't do something like this, and this something Kate is certain of.  But when Verna starts to show signs of dementia Kate fears someone is taking advantage of her neighbor's declining health.   

Someone is threatening Kate and they are leaving messages for Detective Parker saying as much. The only question is is this connected to the counterfeit money, Daisy's murder, or Kate's opposition to GPC.   Can Tom and Kate work together to discover the truth?  Or will Kate's stalker have the final word?

Blind Trust has several unexpected twists and turns.  And we also learn more about Kate's father as she probes into his death while in police custody.   There is also a link that ties Kate's dad to something from Tom's past.  This is one book that will keep you guessing and it could also make or break any chance Kate and Tom have at a future together.  

If you liked Deadly Devotion you won't be disappointed in Blind Trust.  I can honestly say I'm looking forward to whatever comes next in the Port Aster series.  This is another winner from Sandra Orchard. 

 I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Revell in exchange for my honest review.

 About the Book:

Kate's not sure how deep this deception goes--but she'll do whatever it takes to find out.

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?
