Overview

Attorney Sarah Rand returns home from abroad to discover that she is a dead woman. In shocked disbelief she realizes the murder victim mistakenly identified as her was really her best friend. No one knows that Sarah is still alive--except the killers still hunting her down.

Alone and on the run, Sarah desperately searches for answers. Why has her boss and mentor, a prominent local judge, been arrested for the crime? What does she have or know that's worth killing for? And what are the most powerful people in exclusive Newport--a senator, a dying professor and his embittered wife, a top-notch security expert and a cadre of criminals--determined to hide.

With danger closing in, Sarah must turn to a man she barely knows--Owen Dean, a Hollywood celebrity with dark secrets of his own. But what she needs to stay alive...is someone she can trust.

Owen Dean was only in Rhode Island because Arthur Warner asked him to be. He wasn't exactly sure why, but he was here none the less.  He wasn't expecting anything of his time in Rhode Island.  Teaching some classes at the university and spending a little time working on projects for his television show kept him busy, at least for now.       Sarah Rand had just landed after a trip to Ireland. She knew someone was after her, but not why they were.  Scared and trying to put the pieces together, Sarah encounters Owen on a dark stretch of road.  An attorney and a teacher who seem to have nothing in common work together.         Sarah and Owen will put the puzzle together and find out just who is out to kill her. They hope to solve the puzzle before Sarah is found. The question is, will they?       A wonderful book of winding turns and unexpected twists.  Well conceived and executed, this is a hold-on-to-your-hat ride.  I was never certain who were the evil ones and who were the good ones.  The characters are well defined and very much alive.  You'll keep guessing until the very end about this thrilling mystery.  I found it warm, fun and a bit puzzling. This is one for the TBR pile. Definitely worth the money and the read! You'll be glad you purchased this one.      I found no issues.      I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because no one is who they seem to be. A fantastic read.   ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

It was a long flight home from Ireland, but tired attorney Sarah Rand looks forward to relaxing in her Newport, Rhode Island home. However, on the drive, a police car stops her and the officers try to kill her. She manages to escape and ultimately Owen Dean, an actor and producer who accepts a teaching job at the local college for reasons of his own, finds Sara on the road and drives her to Newport.

In Newport, Sarah learns that everyone who knows her except the killers think she is dead. She realizes that her friend Tori who was house siting for her is actually the victim. She does not trust the police who loathe her for her vocal criticism of their corruption and soon learns not to depend on prominent citizens because they want her dead too, though Sarah has no idea why. Sarah¿s only hope to survive is Judge Arnold, who happens to be accused of her murder. In desperation,she turns to Owen Dean, as her last chance for survival.

TRUST ME ONCE is an exciting romantic suspense drama that starts at supersonic speed and goes even faster with enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. The story line is action-packed and never lets the reader go, though the audience must accept at face value why Owen willingly places himself in danger for a stranger who rejects police assistance. Still, the audience will root for the couple to win over overwhelming odds in a David and Davidette teaming vs. Goliath confrontation. Sub-genre readers and fans of May McGoldrick, the pseudonym of Jan Coffey, will relish this strong story and trust the authors for more like this one.

Attorney Sarah Rand wen to Ireland for two weeks. Her best friend, Tori, was house-sitting for her. When Sarah returned to Rhode Island, she was pulled over by the police. They tried to kill her, but Sarah escaped and was picked up by Owen Dean. Sarah had no idea that everyone thought her dead for weeks now! Her boss, Judge Arnold, was arrested for the crime! Sarah could not go to the police, since they had apparently tried to kill her. She first needed to find out why and who wanted her dead so she could come forward with answers to release the judge from jail and not have to keep looking over her shoulder. She called the only person no one could connect her with, Owen Dean.

Even though Owen thought Sarah was crazy at first, he agreed to help her for one day. He quickly became a believer! Soon her had several personal reasons to keep helping her. And bodies were piling up as the killers kept attempting to finish their job!

***** I have no doubt that this one will hit the best seller list! Eery page is filled with non-stop action and suspense. I was able to figure parts of it out, but most were surprises to me. I love books that keep me guessing! It seemed to me, as I read along, that Jan Coffey was born to write Mystery Thrillers! Mary Higgins Clark fans need to take a good long look at this rising author! *****
