A Matter of Trust by Deb Stover book cover

AD* | Returning to her tiny hometown of Digby, Colorado to begin her medical career, young Dr Taylor Bowen is shocked to discover the half-naked, gorgeous body of her first patient belongs to a man she hoped never to see again.

Gordon Lane had been her true love, her only love, until he betrayed her in the worst possible way. But as Taylor and Gordon find themselves together again, stirring up memories, can they find the courage to reclaim an old love - and open their hearts to timeless passion.

A Matter of Trust is one of those books that has been sitting on my 'kindly gifted for review purposes' pile for years. Much as I wish that statement was an exaggeration, it's really not - in fact, I wrote about my desire to finally read and review the book back in January. So, in an attempt to eventually get through at least part of my backlog of review books, I picked up A Matter of Trust this summer. 

Sweet and romantic yet with a fiery, passionate undertone, this book was the perfect accompaniment to the sweltering temperatures that summer 2018 brought us here in the UK. While it was really too hot to seriously consider trying to focus on work or chores, relaxing in the shade with a cold drink and a book was the perfect summer activity. 

A Matter of Trust is a classic romance read, telling the tale of Taylor and Gordon, a pair of childhood sweethearts who are unexpectedly thrown together again years after their first romance came to an untimely end. As life continues to draw the two ever closer, it's no surprise that before long, the old passion is rekindled and it only takes one small spark to ignite a fire that will change their lives forever...

The book is predictable yet comforting in its familiarity - there are no sudden twists or a lack of that all-important happy ending. A Matter of Trust is easy to get into yet engaging enough to keep you turning the page - the inevitability of Taylor and Gordon's reunion is certainly not an off-putting factor. In fact, it keeps you wanting to read on and discover just how things will pan out for the loved-up pair.

Filled with more than its fair share of passionate encounters, misunderstandings and betrayals, A Matter of Trust is a sweet summer read and perfect for injecting a dose of passion into your reading diet!
