A Quirky Whodunit for Mystery Lovers

                                          blind trust
                         By Sandra Orchard
 This author was new to me, however, I am always willing and ready to find new talented people to entertain me!! This book was a SUCCESS!! I love a good mystery, with a dash of romance and it met my criteria for a great read!! Wishing that I had read the first book in this series!

The main character, Kate Adams had no idea that she was carrying counterfeit money and can not believe that it came from her sweet elderly neighbor , for whom she runs errands. How on earth , has this landed her in the middle of another of Detective Tom Parker's investigations!! Had I read Book One of the Port Aster Series, it would have been beneficial, as I would have understood the complications much sooner. Determined to prove that her friend was innocent, Kate finds herself in the middle of a pit of intrigue, far more than she ever imagined. It wasn't just a two bit counterfeit operation, it was a mystery that struck far too close to home.

Family secrets are discovered! Kate's budding romance with Tom begin to disintegrate! Kate realizes that she will not be safe until all of Port Aster's secrets are uncovered. Will her romantic dreams be dashed??? Will it be too late for Tom and Kate??

Sandra is a talented author who intricately weaves a web of mystery and suspense throughout the book. This is a story that is all a "sit on the edge of your seat" should include!!  Now, I can hardly wait for book three in the series!

The characters are well developed and easy to identify with. They are realistic, dealing with some very true to life situations. I could feel Kate's confusion, fears as well as her relief when all was solved.

The plot was one that involved the reader from the first page. One of betrayal, secrets and small town intrigue!!  Surprises occurred around every corner!

I would highly recommend this book to all mystery lovers!! A great read!
