Where Trust Lies was a very surprising book for me. I have not read a book from author Janette Oak in a while and this was also co-authored with her daughter. The cover is absolutely beautiful and I so want to visit Canada now. This is the second in the series but it can be read as a standalone. This story does not focus so much on the romance between Beth Thatcher and her Mountie, but on Beth’s family and primarily her relationships with her mother and sisters. The Thatcher family have decided since Beth is back from her teaching position that the women will take a cruise around Canada and the USA. Beth at first is dismayed by the whole idea but as she is on the trip she does grow closer to her family. We along with the Thatcher’s get a glimpse of the different ports in Canada and wait expectantly with Beth for news from Jarrick, the Mountie, either by letter, telegraph, or phone. However, not everyone is as they seem on this cruise and things do begin to take a turn for the frightening. This is stated as a companion story to the Hallmark TV series, When Calls the Heart, which I just may have to start watching. I received a copy for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
