Review for The Burden of Trust by Tabitha Dye

The drive home from the doctor’s appointment was like any other afternoon in sunny Florida. Kerri sat in the passenger’s side treasuring the image of their baby girl. The small green Honda CRV, that Kerri just purchased two weeks ago for the expecting baby was filled with smiles and excitement beyond imagine. That was last happy moment Kate ever had of Kerri. 

In the process of recovery, Kate meets an arrogant actor, who accidentally falls in love with her. Sadly his publicity forces a dark secret of Kate's into the light and she must determine if she can forgive him.

To get right down to brass tacks, this is not something I would normally read.  It's kind of out of my "genre" so to say.  However, I did find this a rather intriguing read and had to follow it through to the end to find out where everything would lead.  Kate is one conflicted individual and with good reason.  Some of those reasons are hidden until you get well into the book.  At that point you do start wondering what exactly the big secret is that she's hiding, and it's a doozy.  But then again, she was in a rough place and had little choice.  Then years later she is still coping with losing Kerri and their baby when Chris Cody strolls into her life quite forcefully.  The man who has everything he ever wanted, but realizes how empty his life has been and how no one is actually interested in him personally.  It's just his fame and fortune.  But then there's Kate who's brutally honest and causes him to rethink everything.  A friendship buds between them and Kate finds that she can finally let go and trust someone again and she starts changing for the better, but as always, something awful happens that causes quite the upheaval in her and Chris's friendship.  To be honest, you're left wondering just where their friendship is heading because it's quite intense to be just friends.  But it doesn't really say in the end and there are a few loose ends so I am hoping that there is a second book in the works.
A solid 4 out of 5 stars!
