Sophia Meadows had just gone through a divorce after years of marriage. As a high-flying computer programmer, she took solace in her job. Aneella came along, a friend whom Sophia hadn’t seen in ten years. She convinced Sophia to spend time at her Inverness home in the Scottish Highlands. Unfortunately, there was an ulterior motive, and Sophia will find out that not all that glitters is gold. As evidence piles up against her for crimes she knows nothing about, Sophia doesn’t know who to trust. But when she falls in love with DI Marcus Armstrong, the investigator on the case, she must prove her innocence, even if it means putting her life on the line. Those We Trust by Marie Jones has all these exciting details.
Those We Trust by Marie Jones is a romantic crime thriller that is both refreshing and riveting. The plot was quite unusual but realistic and unique. I loved the character development as it was perfect. Aneella was less the prey and more of a predator as far as I’m concerned. This book taught me that it’s not mandatory to hold on to some friendships. If people show us who they are, it’s in our best interests to believe them instead of giving them the benefit of the doubt. There is a hidden depth to humans that we can’t fathom. We should learn to put our foot down because that may be our saving grace. Marie is a gifted storyteller who has written a captivating book. The writing was stylish, and the book was easy to follow. I eagerly await the sequel!
