Blind Trust by Sandra Orchard (Revell; ISBN 9780800722234; ebook ISBN 9781441245069; $14.99)

Kate Adams had no idea she was carrying counterfeit money, and she can’t believe that it’s landed her in the middle of another one of Detective Tom Parker’s investigations. As she helps investigate, Kate stumbles into a pit of intrigue that is far deeper than a two-bit counterfeit operation—and strikes too close to home for comfort. As family secrets come to light, her world—and her budding romance with Tom—begin to crumble. It’s clear that Kate won’t be safe until she uncovers all of Port Aster’s secrets. But is it too late for her and Tom?
