‘Blind Trust’–not easily followed if you haven’t read Book One

blind trustKate Adams has a difficult time with trust, but when her elderly neighbor is suspected of counterfeiting, she is determined to prove her innocence.  “Blind Trust” is book two in Sandra Orchard‘s Port Aster Secrets series.  I was disappointed to find that I started reading the second book.  You definitely need to read “Deadly Devotion” if you want to understand what’s going on in “Blind Trust”.  The second book doesn’t offer a recap or do any characterization.  The author assumes readers have read “Deadly Devotion” and some of what’s happening are not easily understood or followed.  The book ends on a cliffhanger so you will have to read continuing books to finish the story.

“Blind Trust” left me frustrated at the end.  I am not certain it is memorable enough for me to want to purchase the next book when it is released next summer.  If you haven’t read book one, don’t read book two.  If you do, you will be confused, frustrated and disappointed because of the author’s assumptions that readers are familiar with the characters and the story.  There were some things that just didn’t make any sense without an explanation.
