Book Review ~ Deadly Devotion by Sandra Orchard ~ 3/10/16

Research scientist Kate Adams and her colleague Daisy are on the brink of a breakthrough for treating depression with herbal medicine when Daisy suddenly dies. Kate knows that if it hadn’t been for Daisy’s mentorship, she wouldn’t have the job she loves or the faith she clings to. So when police rule Daisy’s death a suicide, Kate is determined to unearth the truth.

Former FBI agent Tom Parker finds it hard to adjust to life back in his hometown of Port Aster. Though an old buddy gives him a job as a detective on the local police force, not everyone approves. Tom’s just trying to keep a low profile, so when Kate Adams demands he reopen the investigation of her friend’s death, he knows his job is at stake. In fact, despite his attraction to her, Tom thinks Kate looks a bit suspicious herself.

As evidence mounts, a web of intrigue is woven around the sleepy town of Port Aster. Can Kate uncover the truth? Or will Tom stand in her way?  

My Thoughts:
I stayed up well past my bedtime to find out "whodunit"!
The author kept me guessing the entire time and I still didn't have it figured out until the end.
Kate is a true and loyal friend who loves God and wants to show others about God, even to the point of putting herself in danger!
Tom is the new guy on the force after being away for years.  He has something to prove but Kate keeps popping up and he can't deny his attraction to her and the need to protect her.
This book was a wonderful mystery with jus the right touch of romance to make it interesting on that level.
This is the first book in the Port Aster Secrets, but I look forward to reading more!
