When trust is violated, can it ever be recovered?

Alison Jacobs needs brain surgery and places ultimate trust in her sister's husband, Grant Kaplan, a world-renowned neurosurgeon and expert in treating her condition. But Grant is hiding a dark secret which threatens the outcome: an addiction to prescription pills. As Alison struggles to rebuild her life, Grant's daughter, Sadie, spends more time with a new friend. Frustrated that her parents exclude her from the conversations about her beloved aunt, Sadie makes increasingly risky choices which could endanger not only her, but her entire family.

Alison is also harboring her own secret-an extramarital affair with a woman. Her close call with mortality spurs her to take a closer look at her marriage, explore her newfound sexuality and figure out what she wants for her future. How will she rebuild her life and move forward? Can she find a way to repair her broken relationship with her only sister?

Secrets swirling around drug use and sexual identity must be dealt with in order for the family to learn to trust each other again.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
This is my first Frimmer novel and let me tell you what, I was not disappointed in anyway shape or form!
I loved turning page after page, and feeling the emotions of the incredible, flawfilled characters. They were incredible and quickly became a part of my soul.

Alison, Grant and Sadie are each battling difficult issues in life, from scary health issues to the pressures of fitting in with friends. Their issues, and ultimately the decisions that surroud them, are true to life in what we see in the world around us today. It was heart wrenching, breathtaking, and utterfly devastating all wrapped up into one incredible story line.

These characters are beautifully created, jumping off the pages like movie characters. I fell hard for each of them in different ways, and when I reached the end of the book, I wasn’t ready to say goodbye. I wanted to keep turning the pages, following them on their journies, fallin more and more in love with them.

If you love family dramas, then you absolutely do not want to miss Frimmer’s Better To Trust. It is magnificently chiseled and completely captivates the reader. Page after page, voice after voice, Frimmer tells this 4 star story of secrets, forgiveness, and learning to trust in a plot line that will not soon be forgettable. I can not wait to read more by this truly talented author!
