Trust Me ( Sanctuary Lake 1) by Lori Whyte

Hello to all,

               I was lucky to be given the opportunity to try the new book by Lori Whyte " Trust Me", first in a new series and i loved it really! so i couldn't wait to share my opinion on it with you

Description from goodreads :

 Everyone told him to think of her as a sister, but his heart and body didn't agree…

When Mason Randall returns to Sanctuary Lake, where his family's past is infamous and deadly, he expects to attend his sister's funeral and get the hell out of there. He can't avoid seeing Anna Brooks, though, and just like always she tempts him beyond all reason. Except damned near everyone he knew made him promise to steer clear of her. She was too good for the likes of him. But when Anna asks him for help, suggesting his sister may have been murdered, he can't turn away. When things get dicey and Anna's life is threatened, Mason promises to keep her safe. She's supposed to be like a sister to him, right? And family always comes first.

Except when he looks at her, his feelings aren't of the familial kind and, if he's reading her right, it looks like he isn't the only one fighting temptation…

My opinion:
          Captivating, i really loved this book and it was extra hard to take break in my reading time it was only because i had no choice or it would have been read in one sitting.

I really appreciated how the story was built focusing on Viv's murder but also with glimpses of the past to understand the characters better  as we really want to learn more about the Randall brothers. Anna and Mason  relationship is touching and later very, very steamy but they are perfect for each other, both loyal to the bone and Mason is so protective which is great for someone as trusting as Anna

The investigation is well done with a building tension to keep you glued to the book because even if you guess the culprit you want to know why, how and you want Anna and Mason to have an happy end.

I'm not sure i can say i have a favourite brother yet, they seems so good in they own way, each with his personality but able to let everything own to go help each other if needed. I loved how protective they were of Anna, seeing her as one of their own and with the childhood they had it's admirable how they have become ( and that's a great part thanks to Mason ( and Viv from what we gathered).

i really want to read more of those but i wonder how it will happen because sanctuary lake could become an very dangerous place at this rythm. really an excellent start for a new series

Score:  4,5/5

Short description from goodreads :

Bubble... Bubble...
June Heal has nothing to lose when she relocates her homeopathic cure shop, A Dose of Darla, from the flea market booth in her home town, to a quaint shop in the cozy but unusual little town of Whispering Falls, Kentucky. Or so it seems.

Cures and trouble...
Whispering Falls has a lot of secrets. From talking snow globes to whispering animals not to mention a few sprinkles of fairy dust, June realizes Whispering Falls is more magical than she thought. . .literally.

My opinion:
          I really enjoy Tonya Kappes' writing it's fluid and so entertaining after trying one of her series i had to get more so i jumped on this mystery series and it's fantastic! a lot more magical and paranormal than her Southern Mysteries at least that's the impression after reading the first book on each series however if the paranormal element is a  big factor in the series, the investigation isn't pushed aside at all and i do love this mix when so well balanced.

June lost her mother recently and decided to continue to make and sell herbal remedies...she does most of them by instinct changing recipe found and trying new ingredients. She is quite happy living like than with her cat mr Prince Charming if it wasn't for nightmares plaguing her since childhood; Suddenly, she is invited to join a small village not that far from her city and to open a shop there....a village very special with a magical feel to it. people there are strange to June also speaking by riddle or speaking of power, spirits etc.

Pushed by her childhood friend Oscar, June accept to go live there as one of the rules of Whispering Falls is that to work there you have to live in the village ( among a lot of other rules^^). June is taking over a shop that was owned by her mother Darla in the past, because surprisingly she came from said village even if June has no memories of it,  while Oscar becomes the police officer there.

June needs to adapt to the changes and starts a quest to learn more about herself, her past and her parents'  however that will get a lot more complicated when after not even one day a murder is committed in the village and June is the suspect number one as the corpse had her bracelet. Suddenly clearing her name becomes the priority even if it means admitting the strange magical elements and events as real.

I loved June, she is so fresh. She has power but she isn't overconfident, she jump on Ding Dong at the first difficulty but most importantly she has a good soul. I also loved her relationship with Oscar who is a little like a brother to her and Prince Charming is  impossible not to love^^, he made smile a lot and suspect a lot of things.

The folks from Whispering Falls are intriguing to say the least and some of their powers are terribly tempting but most importantly for the most of part they made me smile.

The investigation is well written, the plot is believable and all together is a series i do plan to continue and that i recommend to lovers of this genre

Score:  4/5
