Desperate Measures is the third book in the Port Aster Secrets series by Sandra Orchard. In the book, Kate Adams is trying to come to terms with the fact that her father is not dead, rather he is in protective custody and Tom Parker knew this secret. As you could imagine, this puts a strain on Tom and Kate’s relationship, and she has chosen to put her relationship with Tom on hold. Add into that the experiments Kate is conducting on her father’s miracle plant, and you have the ingredients for a very fast-moving, interesting book. There is romance, mystery, and suspense that kept me reading this book late into the night.
Since I read the past books in the series, I didn’t have any problems following the story line. I think this can be read as a stand-alone book, but I definitely think it would be beneficial for the reader to have read the first two books in the series so they can understand everything that is going on. When finishing the book, I didn’t want to see this series end, but I was happy to be able to see the resolution of Kate’s story. I’m looking forward to reading more books by Sandra Orchard.
