Kate Adams had no idea she was carrying counterfeit money, and she can't believe that it came from her sweet neighbor. Or that it lands her in the middle of another one of Detective Tom Parker's investigations. Determined to prove her neighbor's innocence, Kate stumbles into a pit of intrigue that is far deeper than a two-bit counterfeit operation--and 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 is it too late for her and Tom?
Award-winning author Sandra Orchard draws readers into a world of rogues, red herrings, and romance as she unfolds the continuing story of amateur sleuth Kate Adams.
This is a difficult review for me. I’ve read and enjoyed several books by Sandra Orchard, so I expected more of the same: great pacing, well-drawn characters, and tight tension. And in this book, those aspects did not disappoint. I’d already decided this book rated four or five stars when I hit the end. The end? To be honest, I was furious. Books that end with cliff-hangers and without wrapping up storylines, especially the main story, leave me cold. And angry. So instead of four and a half stars, I have to give Blind Trust only three stars.
