Blind Trust is a Christian fiction/suspense with a little romance on the side. It's the second in a series of books about the same small town. The books feature Kate- who, in this installment, is caught in the middle of a counterfeiting ring- and Tom- a police detective. There seems to be an ongoing story involving Kate's father and a pharmaceutical company. I haven't read the first installment, and this is a series where that seems to matter. I was able to pick up what was going on, but there was lots of back story that I missed.
I didn't really feel as if I got to know the characters in the story. There was more of a narrative of events than of development of the characters. It is possible that I may have missed out because I hadn't read the first book. The story was fairly predictable, and there were some pretty unbelievable things happening- not the least of which is the fact that Kate seems to constantly draw criminals of all sorts to be a danger to her.
I give Blind Trust a 3.5 stars and a PG for content. (It does involve homicide, but there really isn't much of a description of violence.
