Because you can't judge a book by its cover

vodka on nightstandWhen Grace Elland discovers her boss murdered in his bed, she knows that the vodka bottle left on the dresser is a message for her from the killer, but the message is from someone who should be dead. In Trust No One by Jayne Ann Krentz, Grace finds herself facing her past long after she expected to be able to lay it to rest. As if that wasn’t enough, if she can’t figure out who is leaving macabre messages she fears she will be next.

Julius Arkwright has made millions by focusing solely on his company but lately has felt like something is missing from his life. Then he meets Grace Elland, despite blowing the first date he finds himself completely interested when he is in her company. Now if only he can convince her to give him a second chance and help her catch who is trying to kill her.

Trust No One is a fabulous return to what makes Jayne Ann Krentz’s contemporary romantic suspense so fabulous, well done tension, a killer on the loose and all the clues pointing to different possible suspects. I read Trust No One in hardbound while I was visiting family and admit that I was so disappointed I wasn’t reading in ebook format because it had so many great quotes I wanted to share and I was never near a pencil (and I struggle to mark up print copies, I dog eared one quote and cringed while I bent the page to do so) to mark it so I am only going to share one gem with you. ‘”There is no great American novel, ” she said absently. “This nation is too big and too diverse to produce only one great book.  We’ve got lots of them and there will be more written in the future. Art doesn’t stand still.”‘

With the latest two contemporary stories, both Trust No One and River Road, Jayne Ann Krentz has returned from paranormal overarching story lines to good suspenseful romantic suspense and I loved both books. I also loved how Julius blew the first date, instead of two characters who were immediately drawn to each other it was a refreshing change to watch Julius struggle to fix what he blew.

NovelReaction's goal is to provide readers with a graphic content so they can make an informed decision regarding the books they want to read. (Also, to have a great place for people to discuss books.) So sit back, pull up a beverage, and read on!
