Since I never read the first book in the Port Aster Secrets Series, I was a little concerned I wouldn’t be able to follow Blind Trust by Sandra Orchard. Although I was confused at points, I did enjoy the overall book. The book begins with Kate Adams being arrested for circulating counterfeit money when she goes to the grocery store to pick up some groceries for her elderly neighbor. She soon finds herself trying to prove that her neighbor is innocent, which connects her again with Detective Tom Parker as he is investigating the case.
I really liked the mystery and suspense part of this book, since I don’t typically read this type of book. It was definitely fast paced, which made me not want to put the book down. There was also the perfect amount of romance mixed into the book. The characters were all very likable, but I think I would have liked them better if I had read the first book in the series. I would definitely recommend that you read the Deadly Devotion before reading Blind Trust if you don’t want to be confused throughout the story.
