A Matter of Trust

There are your favorite authors that can't write fast enough.  Lis Wiehl is one of my favorites and was thrilled to see she had written a new book.  She keeps getting better and better with each book.  This is one of the best suspense books I have read.

This is a Mia Quinn mystery.  The storyline starts with a intriguing  murder that sets this book into many plots, twists and remarkable characters.  Mia is talking with a friend from the prosecutors office and hears a gunshot over the phone.  She realizes her colleague is dying and heads over there while her son stays on the phone in case she says anything-bad idea.  She wants to head up the murder investigation but with so much on her plate she needs help and the storyline unfolds.  Mia is a new widow with lots of debts, troubled teenage son, a four year old who wakes up screaming at night and just trying to keep her job.  As they dig deeper, more complications unfold and she finds herself a target.

I was so absorbed by this story and the different themes.  She touched on being a successful prosecutor, trying to be a mom and holding it all together.  Appearances can be deceiving and Mia learns this from the strong characters throughout the book.  This is one book I will keep and cannot wait for the sequel.  Please Lis-write faster!
Thanks to Thomas Nelson for this free copy for my honest opinion.
