Angela Beebe’s husband Scott has been murdered. Jake Bauman is the detective who informed Angela about her husband. He thinks she’s hiding something and she thinks he’s an ass. What a great way to start a great read.
Cheryl has also included a couple of secondary characters – J.D. and Stacey. Stacey is a friend of Angela’s and J.D. is Jake’s brother. Both couples seem to throw off a lot of sparks. It must be hard for an author to develop a relationship for one couple but Cheryl goes the extra mile by developing two.
Cheryl lets her readers know that Angela loves to bake. If you read this story, and I’m hoping you will, you will get a yummy sounding recipe. You may want to give it a try but Cheryl doesn’t divulge the complete recipe. You may want to search the internet to try to find the full recipe or contact Cheryl. Maybe she will let you in on the rest of it. And if you do contact her, let her know what you liked about this book.
At times, Cheryl has me holding my breath when I think something is going to happen. She knows how to tease her readers with anticipation. There are children in this storyline as well. You see them at times but for the most part, they tend to stay in the background. I would have loved to have seen more interaction between the children and Angela and Stacey. I have a feeling that if this story had been longer that would have changed. But with the intensity of the story, I can understand why there wasn’t – you don’t want to slow down the pace. Leaving their interaction until the end was the perfect spot. This was a great way for the story to end.
But Cheryl has left me with a question – what does she have in store for me next. In doing the research for this review, I found out she has another book out titled Protecting Rose. That book is about a fellow officer to Jake and J.D. I will have to check that one out. In the meantime, if you like teasers stop over to YouTube and check out her book trailer for A Man To Trust, http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Zrv8X7ECDg0.
