Desperate Measures by Sandra Orchard
Publisher: Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group
Genre: Fiction, Mystery, Suspense
Series: Port Aster Secrets
Desperate Measures is a really fun, full of everything that a mystery lover is looking for, and a the perfect amount of romance. This is a must read series. This is the third and final novel in the Port Aster Secrets series. This was the first of Sandra Orchard’s books that I have read. She does an awesome job recapping the previous books for the reader to understand what is going on. You don’t have to read them in order, but it probably will be best if you did. I definitely want to check out the rest of this series!
I must warn you, it does start out slow so you have to hang in there. It won’t be long because it is full of action and suspense. There are so many twists and turns that when I thought I knew what was going on, I was wrong! The end caught me totally by surprise because I was not expecting that, but it was well done.
Kate won’t be safe until all of Port Aster’s secrets are revealed
Researcher Kate Adams has finally pinpointed the supposed “miracle plant” that tore apart her family years ago. She’s certain that discovering its secrets is her only hope of solving the mystery surrounding her father’s disappearance. She’s willing to risk anything to find the truth, including her relationship with Detective Tom Parker. But with so many people in pursuit of the plant, going it alone might be a fatal mistake.
Award-winning author Sandra Orchard pulls out all the stops in this breakneck and breathtaking conclusion to the Port Aster Secrets series.
