5 out of 5 stars
BLIND TRUST by Sandra Orchard was a riveting story with plenty of suspense, and enough romance to keep the story moving.
Kate Adams finds herself once again entangled with Detective Tom Parker. First, it was while she was adamant to prove her friend, Daisy, was murdered. Now, she finds herself as a suspect in a counterfeiting ring. Though she has no intentions of getting involved with Tom on a personal level, she’s thankful he is overseeing her case. She knows he will do whatever’s possible to prove her innocence. What Kate doesn’t count on is their worlds being drastically rocked when secrets from her past, and that of Port Aster’s converge in another case Tom is working on. As Kate’s feelings for Tom grow, their relationship is shattered by distrust. Determined to clear her father’s name, Kate will do whatever it takes. Even if that means going toe to toe with the conglomerate she is convinced is not only responsible for setting her father up, but for his ultimate death.
Detective Tom Parker not only wants to prove Kate Adam’s innocence in the counterfeiting operation that has moved into Port Aster, he can’t help but be drawn to her on a personal level. Knowing he has to deal with her in a professional matter, Tom tries to put his budding feelings for her on the backburner until he can prove her innocence. That becomes increasingly difficult when Tom realizes someone is trying to kill her. When he discovers Kate’s connection is not to counterfeiters but to murderers, he has no choice but to keep her within arm’s length. Not only is he providing for her safety, but he is protecting the woman he loves. His only hope is Kate will forgive him when she finds out the devastating secret he’s keeping from her.
BLIND TRUST was very enjoyable. The interaction between Kate and Tom was very electric, even when they were pushing each other way. Kate was the perfect heroine−strong and driven. And Tom had plenty of magnetism; making him the perfect hero. Plenty of twist. Some expected, some not. I will definitely be back tracking and purchasing DEADLY DEVOTION, book one in the series.
