Review: Question of Trust by Laura Caldwell

Feb 12, 2012

A Izzy McNeil Mystery

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. But what if you can't tell which is which?

When attorney Izzy McNeil's home is broken into, right after her boyfriend, Theo, moves in, she ignores the coincidence. When Theo is arrested on charges of fraud, she wants to believe he's innocent. But when a neighbor is found dead, she can't ignore that something is very, very wrong.

Izzy also can't forget how Theo was inexplicably turned down for a mortgage. Or his recent moody silences. Or how a stranger warned her that Theo needs to "accept responsibility…"

Thrust into Theo's case, Izzy must walk the line between attorney and lover to prove that Theo is innocent. But only Izzy can decide whether trusting Theo will keep her safe…or throw her into unimaginable danger.

I gave this book a 3
A Question of Trust by Laura Caldwell continues the Izzy McNeil’s story. We find that Izzy has moved in with Theo and their situation is not all roses. Izzy has made career changes and she is growing very suspicious of her new beau. Theo Jameson, who has been put in cuffs, due to his not so legal corporate dealings, leaves Izzy with trust issues.  A Question of Trust is rich in detail allowing readers an in-depth view of their surroundings, yet it seems to weigh the story down. I found I could determine things before they happened, I found the story lacked the mystery element. I wished Ms. Caldwell had told the story in third person point of view, it would have carried the story at a better pace. There are more books in the Izzy McNeil Mysteries: Red Hot Lies, Red Blood Murder, Red, White and Dead and Claim of Innocence . This story was not what I had hoped for in a mystery. I wished we had seen more romance intertwined into the story.
