Trust No One by Jayne Ann Krentz
Following up on the incredible success of River Road, New York Times–bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz delivers another masterpiece of romantic suspense.
It’s no coincidence when Grace Elland finds a vodka bottle next to the lifeless body of her boss, motivational speaker Sprague Witherspoon. The bottle is a terrifying—and deliberate—reminder of the horrors of her past.
Grace retreats to her hometown to regroup and tries to put everything she’s learned about positive thinking into practice—a process that is seriously challenged on the world’s worst blind date.
Awkward doesn’t begin to describe her evening with venture-capitalist Julius Arkwright. She has nothing in common with a man who lives to make money, but the intense former Marine does have some skills that Grace can use—and he’s the perfect man to help her when it becomes clear she is being stalked.
As Witherspoon’s financial empire continues to crumble around them, taking a deadly toll, Julius will help Grace step into her past to uncover a devious plan to destroy not only Grace, but everyone around her.
Trust No One is long on tension and suspense while managing to deliver some fun dialog. I had some laugh out loud moments as Grace and Julius first rub each other wrong and then try to work together. They are a perfect match. Julius is very driven and has two rules: Trust No One and Everyone Has a Hidden Agenda. Grace on the other hand has an upbeat saying for every situation.
It is the danger to Grace that brings them together. While they deal with the threat they discover they have more in common that they first believed. There is a twist at the end and I admit I did not see it coming. Trust No One and Everyone Has a Hidden Agenda proved to be very true.
If you are a Jayne Ann Krentz fan you don’t want to miss Trust No One. If you have never read a Krentz book Trust No One is a great place to discover what a great job she does telling a story.
