A Matter of Trust Book Review

A Matter of Trust
Picture Credit

A Matter of Trust by Lis Wiehl is a thriller murder mystery that I could not put down.

One minute Mia Quinn is in her basement, chatting on the phone with a colleague at the prosecutor's office. The next minute there's a gunshot over the line, and Mia listens in horror as her colleague and friend Colleen bleeds to death.

Mia's a natural for heading up the murder investigation, but these days she has all she can do to hold her life together. As a new widow with a pile of debts, a troubled teenaged son, and a four-year-old who wakes up screaming at night, she needs more time with her family, not less--and working Colleen's case will be especially demanding. But Colleen was her friend, and she needs to keep her job. So she reluctantly teams up with detective Charlie Carlson to investigate Colleen's death. But the deeper they dig, the more complications unfold--even the unsettling possibility that someone may be coming after her.

Lis Wiehl's signature plot twists and relatable characters shine in this absorbing series debut . . . with an intriguing cameo from her best-selling Triple Threat series. (Goodreads)

The life of Mia has not been easy since her husband died leaving her with two kids and a very busy investigating job. When her friend dies everything seems to spin out of control. We follow Mia in this adventurous novel as she tries to find out what happened with two different murders. I enjoyed reading this book, I read it in one day because I had to know what happened. The ending sort of came out of nowhere and I had to go back and read a couple of things. This is the first time I have read this author, and I will definitely be reading more in the future! Highly recommend.
