The first book in this series is Deadly Devotion. You can see my review HERE.
I really didn't want to put this book down, I was quite interested in what was going on. Kate has gotten herself into more hot water than she did just dealing with who killed Daisy. Now that she lives in Daisy's house, her job has taken some odd turns, that keep getting more and more odd and distressing each day! While this book stands along, it is more fun to have read the first book, as this series just keeps getting better!
She was at the store for her sweet elderly neighbor when she gets accused of passing counterfeit money! Detective Tom shows up, and makes sure she isn't put in jail, but even so Kate is very puzzled. Something not status-quo is happening with sweet Verna's son, and it is really effecting Verna. It sure seems like they are the ones creating the counterfeit money, but nothing turns up when the police search. Even so, some major things are being hidden by this folks it would seem. Things don't EVEN start to stop there! Kate's being followed, by a very strange man, but then Tom says it isn't an issue. How is being stalked not an issue? Virus's on PC, fake e-mails and letters that Kate didn't send to the Mayor and other major players complicated matters! There are some strange plants that need protecting, and it could tie into her job, but the answers are so deeply buried. As they start to come to light, the answers could separate her and Tom. It could also rock her family, her job, and the entire town. For Kate, figuring out who to trust has never been so complicated, or so filled with prayer and danger.
I can't wait for book three!
Kate's not sure how deep this deception goes--but she'll do whatever it takes to find out.
Kate Adams had no idea she was carrying counterfeit money and can't believe that it came from her sweet elderly neighbor. Or that it has landed her in the middle of another of Detective Tom Parker's investigations. Determined to prove her neighbor's innocence, Kate stumbles into a pit of intrigue far deeper than a two-bit counterfeit operation--and one that strikes too close to home for comfort.
As family secrets come to light, her world--and her budding romance with Tom--begin to crumble. To Kate, it's clear that she won't be safe until she uncovers all of Port Aster's secrets. But then will it be too late for her and Tom?
