I've been a Candace Robb fan for years. I appreciate the chance to review this series although I'm not really sure what I was expecting. I knew this was a completely different series, but I think it is very unfortunate that fans of Ms. Robb's blockbuster Owen Archer series (such as myself) immediately compare Margaret Kerr to Owen - without meaning to. It's hard not to expect this new protagonist to be just like him and to be engaged with her right away. She is truly her own person in her own new kettle of fish. Admittedly, Margaret is hard to become attached to - in the beginning. She is a bit of a pain and I didn't gel with her "woe is me" aura. BUT, as the story progresses and she starts showing what she's actually made of, I got to like her. (I'm reading the 2nd book now and I can definitely say that I'm liking her more and more all the time.) The storyline continues to build and I'm enjoying this series. I think readers need to stay with her and she'll become beloved too. I think any fan of historical fiction and her writing, knows that Candace Robb is a master at bringing history to life for us. Medieval Scotland is one of my favorite time periods to read about. The obvious extensive and meticulous research she does shines through in her stories.

We follow Margaret Kerr on a journey through Bravehart's Scotland, where fearsome politics and personal betrayal parallel the beginnings of Margaret's self awareness and growing ability to respond to adventure, adversity, and disappointment. Uniqe plot twists surprise and delight in this very readable adventure of a bright, but unadventuous woman, who must come through some real and difficult circumstances. And in doing so shows us that women have always had to face adversity with courage. And a little romance never hurts!

In 1297 Scotland, Margaret already shocked by her husband Roger Sinclair not returning home from a trip to Edinburgh five months ago is further stunned. Roger¿s cousin Jack, who went in search of his missing relative, has just returned home in a shroud. Jack allegedly died in a barroom brawl.

Upon inspecting the corpse, Margaret realizes that someone deliberately and viciously murdered Jack. Unable to sit and wait any longer, Margaret travels to Edinburgh in search of her spouse and Jack¿s killer. She will soon learn why no one including relatives and her husband wants Margaret in the city, let alone her investigating a murder.

Readers can trust that Candace Robb will never betray their belief in the quality of her historical novels. Her latest tale is a historical mystery that is enriched with a strong feel of the era. The story line is exciting as the intrepid Margaret conducts her amateur sleuthing over the objections of seemingly everyone. A TRUST BETRAYED is hopefully the beginning of a new series from one of the better authors of medieval tales (see the Owen Archer novels for wonderful fifteenth century period mysteries).
