"Desperate Measure"
Sandra Orchard

Kate won't be safe until all of Port Aster's secrets are revealed
Researcher Kate Adams has finally pinpointed the supposed "miracle plant" that tore apart her family years ago. She's certain that discovering its secrets is her only hope of solving the mystery surrounding her father's disappearance. She's willing to risk anything to find the truth, including her relationship with Detective Tom Parker. But with so many people in pursuit of the plant, going it alone might be a fatal mistake.

Award-winning author Sandra Orchard pulls out all the stops in this breakneck and breathtaking conclusion to the Port Aster Secrets series.

Sandra Orchard is excellent at writing romantic suspense novels.  This is the second book that I have read by her and I loved it!  The story picked up right where it left off in book two, with non-stop adventure and suspense.  

Although I was still a bit confused about the crime and everything that it involved, and had a hard time keeping up with who was who, I still enjoyed this book.  There were a lot of different characters and at times it was a bit confusing.  

With all of the different characters involved, you don't know who to trust and who not to.  One minute they're acting like Kate's best friend and the next you suspect them as up to something.  The only person that Kate knows she can trust is Detective Tom.  Then she doesn't trust him half the time because he doesn't tell her everything so he can protect her better.  

While Kate is a devout Christian, and everyone knows it, she didn't seem as devout as was lead to believe.  Yes, she relied on God, but almost as an afterthought.  Not until the end did they really talk about Him.  

If you enjoy reading romantic, Christian suspense, then you will enjoy this book and author.  But I do suggest reading these books in order.  They're not stand alone novels.
