“A Matter of Trust” A Mia Quinn Mystery (book 1) By Lis Wiehl, with April Henry
**WARNING review may contain spoilers**
Mia Quinn is a lawyer at the prosecutor’s office. The book opens with her on the phone with a colleague named, Colleen. Their conversation goes from talking about holding a yard sale to Mia hearing her friend get shot and dying. While Mia runs to Colleen’s house to see if she can save her, her 14 year old son Gabe, is left to watch is little sister, Brooke. While Mia is gone Brooke starts to scream. Charlie, a police officer on the scene of the murder hears on Mia’s phone the screaming and rushes Mia back home to take care of her kids.
Mia is left in charge of solving Colleen’s murder as well as a 5 year old murder case of another colleague. One they believe are connected. Mia is forced to work with Charlie, someone she doesn’t like or trust. She’s working hard on this case and also trying to learn how to be a single parent to a teenager and a toddler.
You are left hanging until the end, trying to figure out who did it; What’s going on with Mia’s children; and will Mia find love? It’s a murder mystery, love story, high adventure book. It also adds the search for the truth of God for Mia. She doesn’t believe yet, but I’m hoping to see her come to know God in the up coming books.
I loved every minute of this book. It had my heart racing each time I picked it up. And just when I thought the book was coming to an end there was another twist thrown in. The book also ends with the question of who should Mia date and what adventure is coming next. I can’t wait for this next book. I love all the books I’ve read written by Lis Wiehl, I finish the Triple Threat Series this past Fall and I’m glad to see this new series coming out.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves lawyer, murder mystery type books.
