Strands of Truth kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading it. I found it difficult to put down and basically read the entire book in one sitting. Harper quickly became a character I wanted to get to know and learn more about. Orphaned on the day of her birth, she first lived with her grandmother and foster homes that both left Harper searching for someone to love. Oliver, Harper’s mentor, and friend, became the perfect father figure for Harper, even though his own two children felt otherwise. At first, I did not care for his son or daughter.
But as I kept reading and began to understand where Ridge and Willow were coming from in their opinions. However, I never learned to like Ridge and Willow’s mother. She seemed to be a cold and hard woman who basically poisoned the mind of her daughter.
Annabel, Harper’s half-sister, comes into the picture and I was glad they both had each other. Annabel’s children, especially her son who was a police officer, added authenticity to this story. He provided an interesting angle to what I was reading.
Trying to discover their father leads Harper to meet interesting people from her mother’s and Annabel’s mother’s pasts. I wondered several times who was behind everything, but until almost the end I was not able to decide anything for certain. The only thing I knew for sure was I wanted Ridge and Harper to become a couple.
This book is full of intrigue, danger, and suspense. Why is someone trying to kill Harper, Oliver, and Annabel? Who is behind the actual murder attempts? The flashbacks to the past about
Truly, this is a book worth reading.
