I won this book through the First Reads program on Goodreads. The premise sounded interesting - An olympic fencer, a flight attendant, a professor, international stolen art ring. What's not to like? The story line was fine, the writing left much to be desired. I hope this is the author's first book and he will get better as time goes on. One of the problems was that the chapters were insanely short. Some only a page or two. Big blank pages staring at you. This took me repeatedly out of the story ...more
I won L.A. De Michiel's "Trust" as a Goodreads giveaway. This is the first Austrailian novel I've read and I loved it! The main character, Luke Montgomery, is a fencing Olympian and instructor. The woman character, Cassie, is a flight attendant. The two are pulled together by unseen and unknown forces by Cassie's chance meeting with Simon Blayne. Although the plot is complicated, the novel was written in such a way that it was clear and easy to follow. The end of the novel was left as a cliffhan ...more
Review of Trust – Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book, which in no way influenced my opinion in this review. Trust is about several characters and the interactions between them. The theme, of course, is Trust. Who to trust, when to trust, and the results therefrom. This book was well written and kept you guessing as to what would happen next. You got to know and like some of the characters and dislike others. I think the author did a good job of keeping the suspense tight. ...more
I enjoyed this book very much. It was refreshing to have a male and female hero combination, without there being a lot of sappy romance between them. It was obvious that Luke and Cassie came to care for one another by the end but it was not in a way that overshadowed the main story line in the slightest.

* I won this book in a goodreads contest.
I enjoyed it.
