Where Trust Lies by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

Beth Thatcher enjoyed teaching of out in the Canadian West. But the school year is over and she has returned home for the summer break. But shortly after arriving home her mother and sister tell her about their plans for a family trip on a luxurious steamship tour along the eastern coast of Canada and the United States. Beth does not like the idea of leaving for another trip when she just got home. And a steamship tour will make it harder to receive letters and telephone calls from Jarrick, a Mountie who she met out west. But in the hopes of spending time with her family and getting to reconnect with them she agrees to go along. But reconnecting may be harder than she though. And when the wrong people are trusted it may cause a disaster that could forever change her family.
Let me start by saying I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had been able to read book one in this series first. In some ways it was easy to relate the Beth. And the the authors did a good job of filling me in on info I would need to know from book one. It was nicely explained and well written, but I just found it hard to enjoy the story as much as I had hoped. A lot of the time is was kind of hard for me to feel what Beth was feeling, because I had not experienced the events from the first book. And as much as I can relate to Beth in some ways, I did not enjoy how the whole story came only from her point of view. Even in the most exciting part of the book I only got to see it from her point of worry the whole time it was going on. Over all I did not like this book to much, but if you have already read book one in the series you might enjoy this story.

 I received this book free from Bethany House for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
