Review: Deadly Devotion
Author: Sandra Orchard
Series: Port Aster Secrets #1
Genre: FICT, Mystery
Kate knows the truth is out there–but if she’s right, that means a killer is out there too.
Research scientists Kate Adams and Daisy Leacock were on the brink of a breakthrough for treating depression with herbal medicine when Daisy was suddenly found dead. Kate knows that her mentor’s death wasn’t suicide or a careless accident–and she’s determined to do whatever it takes to unearth the truth about what happened to the woman who changed her life.
Former FBI agent Tom Parker is finding it hard to adjust to life back in his hometown of Port Aster. Though an old buddy gave 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 into her friend’s death, he knows his job is at stake. But despite his attraction to her, Tom thinks Kate may have something to hide.
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?
This book held me captivated from the first page to the last. The mystery, romance, and secrets were blended and interwoven really well.
When I first received the book, I took a look at the cover and was immediately uninterested in it. But when I opened the book I was pleasantly surprised. I fell in love with the plot and story right a ways.
Mystery and romance go hand in hand for me. If I can get my hands on a book with both in the plot, you can be sure that it’ll only take me a little while to read it. Such as was the case with this book.
This book is being put on my shelf as a keeper and I hope the rest of the series as well, I hope. Enjoy!!
