Trust Me by Kelly Irvin (with a GIVEAWAY!)


4 Stars!


When her best friend is murdered the same way her brother was, who can she possibly trust?

A decade ago, Delaney Broward discovered her brother’s murdered body at the San Antonio art co-op he founded with friends. Her artist boyfriend, Hunter Nash, went to prison for the murder, despite his not-guilty plea.

This morning, Hunter walks out of prison a free man, having served his sentence.

This afternoon, Delaney finds her best friend dead, murdered in the same fashion as her brother.

Stay out of it or you're next, the killer warns.

Hunter never stopped loving Delaney, though he can’t blame her for not forgiving her. He knows he’ll get his life back one day at a time, one step at a time. But he’s blindsided to realize he’s a murder suspect. Again.

When Hunter shows up on her doorstep asking her to help him find the real killer, Delaney’s head says to run away, yet her heart tells her there’s more to his story than what came out in the trial. An uneasy truce leads to their probe into a dark past that shatters Delaney’s image of her brother. She can’t stop and neither can Hunter—which lands them both in the crosshairs of a murderer growing more desperate by the hour.

In this gripping romantic suspense, Kelly Irvin plumbs the complexity of broken trust in the people we love—and in God—and whether either can be mended.

What a great combination of suspense, tension, hope, and faith. 

Great characters! Loved Delaney (Laney) I really wanted her to find her answers and to forgive, but I didn't blame her one bit. She didn't have much to go on. She was human with real human emotions. She definitely felt real to me. Hunter - what a guy! Loved him from he start. The whole time he insisted he was innocent, but did I believe him? You bet I did! Now he just had to convince Delaney.

This was a tad slow in the middle, but I do think it was necessary for all the suspense in the end. You have to hear everything that happened and feel the tension as it slowly built. You also have to truly get to know the characters, which the author does so well.

Then, holy cow! The ending was so tense, scary, and really I had no idea what was going to happen next. And I truly never suspected the real killer! Total shock for me. Excellent ending.

This was a first Kelly Irvin book for me, but I am looking forward to reading more.
