Trust Me (Mira Romantic Suspense)by Brenda Novak
Synopses & Reviews
Eve Elliot is a successful therapist, a loving wife, a mother deeply invested in her family—but her happiness is built on a lie. When she was a lonely, vulnerable young woman, a single decision led to a dark night of unimaginable consequences. Now, forced to confront her past, she faces another terrible choice: reveal to her family that she is not who she seems, or allow a man to take the blame for a crime she knows he did not commit.
Corinne Elliot has always known she was different: the only redhead in a family of brunettes, the paralyzing shyness that contrasts with her sister's vivaciousness, the many fears—of highways, of bridges, of public spaces—that constrict her daily life. Still, she's found some measure of happiness—until the day she turns on the television and finds her mother's image on the screen.
Now, as the past explodes into the present, Corinne must confront the secrets she has always intuited, and find answers from the one person who knows the truth—a woman named CeeCee Wilkes, who disappeared years ago .
"The inaugural Skye Kellerman novel from Novak (Dead Right, etc.) generates genuine thrills. Attacked four years ago at home by rapist and murderer Oliver Burke, Skye defended herself and put him behind bars. Inspired by her own struggle, Skye began the Last Stand — an organization focused on helping survivors and teaching self-defense. She is also wrestling with an attraction to the detective from her case, David Willis. When Burke cuts a deal, the fiend is out on the street, eager for revenge on Skye — who has been the focus of his continued obsession. Novak changes the pace by focusing on the families — of the victim, of Willis, of Burke — showing different sides of protective love. Skye's fellow members of the Last Stand get short shrift, but readers will look forward to books in the series devoted to each woman. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
It's been four years since Skye Kellerman fought off an assailant. As a result of that attack, she has joined two friends--also survivors--to form The Last Stand, an organization to help crime victims. But now Skye's would-be rapist is getting out of prison and intends to finish what he started. Original.
