Deadly Devotion- a review
Research scientist Kate Adams and her colleague Daisy are on the brink of a breakthrough for treating depression with herbal medicine when Daisy suddenly dies. Kate knows that if it hadn't been for Daisy's mentorship, she wouldn't have the job she loves or the faith she clings to. So when police rule Daisy's death a suicide, Kate is determined to unearth the truth.
Former FBI agent Tom Parker finds it hard to adjust to life back in his hometown of Port Aster. Though an old buddy gives him a job as a detective on the local police force, not everyone approves. Tom's just trying to keep a low profile, so when Kate Adams demands he reopen the investigation of her friend's death, he knows his job is at stake. In fact, despite his attraction to her, Tom thinks Kate looks a bit suspicious herself.
As evidence mounts, a web of intrigue is woven around the sleepy town of Port Aster. Can Kate uncover the truth? Or will Tom stand in her way?
The first installment of the Port Astor Secrets series gives the right amount of mystery blended with a little bit of romance. Kate is a determined woman trying to find the proper justice for her friend, Daisy. Tom is a man who decides to help Kate- but off the record. Whenever something becomes "off the record," the story is bound to be interesting! Sandra Orchard does not disappoint!
Twists and turns are very believable....and the relationship of Kate and Tom will just have to continue.
