Desperate Measures ~ Review

Desperate Measures 
Port Aster Secrets #3
by Sandra Orchard

The Port Aster Secrets series concludes with Desperate Measures and the suspense doesn't let up. All the mysteries that seem to be piling up at Kate Adams' door are about to get bigger and even more dangerous.  Determined to be reunited with her long missing father, Kate is willing to keep her research on the amendoso plants a secret from everyone - even Tom Parker.  Solving the secret of the amendoso and its healing properties is the key to everything and to stopping GPC.  But GPC is determined to control the amendoso plant.  And this could cost Kate everything especially if anyone suspected that she was hiding some away.

But when her research assistant Patti begins showing suspicious symptoms Kate fears that she may yet again be putting a friend in danger.  But who's to blame in this latest attack?  Is it Jarrett, Patti's boyfriend and the mayor's son?  Has GPC figured out what she's been hiding?  And what is the link to the missing teen?  Are all the secrets of Port Aster related?  Or are they merely coincidence?

Can Kate learn who to trust with her secret and her heart before it is too late?

If you've read the first 2 books in the Port Aster series you won't be disappointed with Desperate Measures.  This is exciting conclusion to this series that has kept up the mystery surrounding Kate's past, her father, and the amendoso plant.  We finally learn the truth surrounding many of the characters Kate has had doubts about and what roll they've played in the secrets hiding in Port Aster.

Take a trip north of the border for an exciting mystery in Canada with ties to the United States and South America.  With a long holiday week-end on the horizon what better way to spend it than with a good book.

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