Book Review: A Matter of Trust

A Matter of Trust is suspense mystery. Mia, a defence attorney is on the phone to her Colleen, her colleague and good friend when Colleen is shot. Mia, herself a new widow, is desperately trying to hold her family together. However, she feels driven to find out how murdered her friend. As it turns out, she, and the detective assigned to the case solve more than one murder as a result of investigating Colleen's murder.

This is the first book I read on my new Kindle and it was a page turner. But can I even use that cliche when it was an eBook? 

It's the first in a series, and I'm keen to read more. Mia is an realistic character that surely doesn't have her life all together. It'll be interesting to see how things develop for her down the track.

I thought I read somewhere that this is Christian fiction, but I can hardly see that, based on this one book. Perhaps later in the series? In any case, if Christian fiction turns you off, then you needn't worry, this book is not gooey or preachy. And, though things seem to be going better for Mia at the end of the book, she's not had a dramatic conversion or fallen in love with her perfect man.
