If you decide to read Jayne Ann Krentz's newest romantic thriller, Trust No One, you will not be disappointed.

The characters and setting work together to create tension that gradually builds page after page, drawing readers into the motivational business world of Grace Elland.

When readers meet Grace for the first time in the opening scene, they will instantly connect with her glass-half-full persona. To her co-workers and family, she appears to have a Pollyanna-like naivete towards people and situations. However, as Krentz reveals more of her multi-faceted personality, readers receive a glimpse into the complex layers of a very strong-willed woman.

Krentz's authentic characters, intriguing mystery, and wry humor will really capture readers' attention until the end of the book. Trust No One is a flawlessly executed novel, one that stay with you like an old family friend.
