Review: Desperate Measures by Sandra Orchard

Desperate Measures Desperate Measures is the third and final book in the Port Aster Secrets series. I have enjoyed all three books, but I think that this one was my favorite. I felt that the story lines that flowed through all the books were tied up very nicely in this novel.

Once again, Kate Adams is unsure about who can be trusted. Leaning more on herself than on God or the man who loves her, Kate finds herself in some scary situations. The author really did a great job of keeping me guessing. I didn’t know who Kate should trust either!

I really enjoyed the growing romance between Kate Adams and Detective Tom Parker. Their relationship has evolved throughout the three books. It has hit rough patches and that is pretty much where they are at when Desperate Measures begins. I really liked Tom. Watching him persevere and seeing his dedication to Kate in these books was great!

This was a fun series. I definitely recommend it to readers who enjoy romantic suspense. (4 stars)

My thanks to Revell for the complimentary copy of this book that I received in exchange for an honest review.
