Trust me when I say you'll like this novel

New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz has a new book out already in 2015, "Trust No One." It's romantic suspense, although a bit more suspense than typical romance, as her main character, Grace Elland, deals with a murder, a stalker and a past that's hard to leave behind.

Preteens Rose and Windy meet at their summer cottages every year, but this time it's different.
