"Blind Trust" by Sandra Orchard

About this book:

  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?”

My personal Rating-
This was a really neat twist on the classic Beauty & the Beast story! I really enjoyed the no-romance version of this fairy-tale—the ‘beast’ was actually Belle’s father. Lots of faith content which was great, I only wish it was longer! ;)
(And that cover is adorable!)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
