Kate must work to find...

Kate must work to find the secret of the plants that she is working for no matter what the cost. She is working at keeping the fact that she has some of the plants a secret, but that secret becomes threatened when a co-worker comes over to help her paint. An accident forces Kate to move in with Patti and she finds even more secrets and more things to threaten the one thing that she wants most. I liked how Kate was able to work around and with the obstacles that kept coming her way. She was able to persevere and handle what came her way no matter the cost. I received this book free from the publisher to review.

Title: Desperate Measures Author: Sandra Orchard Publisher: Fleming H. Revell Company Series: Port Aster Secrets # 3 Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: Five Review: "Desperate Measures" by Sandra Orchard What I liked about this novel... "Desperate Measures" by Sandra Orchard was this author's 'Port Aster Secrets #3' and ...I love this suspenseful mystery read that kept my interest from the beginning to the very end. I will say to probably better understand some of what went on in this series it would be a good idea to read the first two novels [Deadly Devotion and on to Blind Trust]. But since I didn't I will say that the mystery of it all starts from the very beginning as your attention will be grabbed quickly as this 'series centers around a mysterious plant[miracle plant] that supposedly has miraculous properties.' As the story goes on we find Kate's father was involved in this the plant situation and from here this author will bring to the reader a good mystery read that will unravel the rest of this series to the reader. This was quite a interesting read about Detective Tom Parker and Kate Adams, who was a herbal research scientist. I loved how this author was able to give the reader a mystery with a lots of conspiracy that was non stopped action in this trilogy. The author's writing will have you guessing you know the answer but later finding out you didn't have that clue with all of the twist and turns that will be presented to the reader. You will be wondering...[Who are the good guy and the bad ones?] The lead heroine Kate really knew her job which I found her research work was very fascinating to read about and then their was the detective Tom. We find the detective is trying to solve this mystery too that surrounds Kate which will give us quite an interesting read. I don't know but to me there seemed to be something missing from these two[Tom & Kate]..sometimes I thought these two were clueless...but in the end maybe they really deserved each other in all of there tense romantic moments where you will be left wondering will these two ever learn that they really care for each other? Be ready for a read of suspense, mystery, action and even some humor. There will be some well developed, defined, well portrayed and believable characters that will keep the details[secrets]that will be brought out to the reader with a very riveting conclusion for the reader. Now, this is where I say I don't want to say any more other than you must pick up this read "Desperate Measures" to see how it will all come out. I found it was one good read. Needless to say once I started reading I was not able to put down with a plot that moves so very smoothly...with intriguing scenes and all of my questions were all answered in the end from this well written novel. I received a copy through NOR in exchange for an honest review.

Okay, its official. I...

Okay, it's official. I am in love with these books. Wow! They only got better! This one was definitely my favorite with a perfect mix of suspense-filled action, heartwarming scenes, and even a few heart wrenching scenes. The ending of book two made me so mad. Kate's missed opportunity at forgiveness had me really worried for what this book would bring. But thankfully, that was wrapped up relatively quickly in this one. I loved the progression of Kate and Tom's relationship. Just perfect! The romance is so sweet and not at all in-your-face. I loved all the characters in this book - well, most of them. While I didn't like some, they were still great characters. Jarret, Patti, Zoe, Kate's father . . . There's also the reappearance of characters from previous books, such as Edward Crump and Molly.These books definitely keep you guessing and on your toes. There's also a lot more action in this one than the first two, which I loved. It also had some very sweet scenes, especially towards the end, between Kate and Tom, and Kate and her father.

Ive traveled this sto...

I've traveled this story through the three books, and had my heart in my throat throughout the story. This being the final in the Port Aster Secrets, we do find out who is a good guy and who isn't, and boy are you going to be surprised. At least I was, I never saw some of the happening coming and who was a good guy and who was bad. I kept hoping from the first page that Kate would finally be reunited with her dad, and make her peace with Tom Parker. He seems to be there and has her back and is caring, but both are keeping secrets from each other. We do get a lot of answers to all of our questions that have been building up, and we dig deeper into all angles of this mysterious plant. There are also some helpful hints about which common plants that God planted near problem plants, like poison ivy, which are remedies, I never knew. I am ready for a next book from Sandra Orchard, if it is anything like this series; I know I will love it. I received this book through the Revell Reads Blogger Program, and was not required to give a positive review.
