    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "Disappointed"

    My familiarity of Lis Wiehl came from watching her on Fox and seeing how dynamic she was. I thought that might follow through in her writing but it didn't. The book was OK. I decided to forgo the rest.

    "Prosecuting mom mystery"

    A MATTER OF TRUST by Lis Wiehl--Prosecutor, Mia Quinn, is a new widow with a teen-aged son and a four year old daughter. While talking on the phone to her best friend in the office, Coleen, Mia hears a shot then nothing but strange breathing from Coleen. Coleen's death resembles another prosecutor's death from many years ago. Mia and detective Charlie Carlson are teamed up to investigate the possible connection between these two deaths. But having a teen-aged son can cause problems of in itself.

    I liked the interaction of all the characters in this book. The problems and situations were very realistic. Wiehl was able to follow three cases seamlessly and interestingly within this one story. Great start for a new mystery series! I listened to this on Audible and found it added to the enjoyment of this book.

    Story
    "Maintaining Trust can be Dangerous"
    What made the experience of listening to A Matter of Trust the most enjoyable?

    Mia Quinn a widow, single mother of two children, and overwhelmed by the heavy debt her deceased husband had hidden from her. She decided to return to work as a lawyer to keep her home.After viewing a video of a recent crime scene, she must make a decision that could cause her delicate house of cards to tumble. Dare she report her son's participation in the rave caught on tape. She must decide to tell the truth with her son. Knowing he was possibly facing a juvenile record and exploitation in the news media.She knows she has to go to her boss and identify her son as one of the teens involved in this recent crime. In spite of real bad consequences,Mia had her son tell the truth after she prepared the way rather than lied by omission.There were indeed consequences, but Mia and her son were ableto build up trust with her coworkers and with each other. He also learned from the process what it means to be a man and a responsible member of the greater community, She showed him through actions and support the importance of trustworthiness and that she had his back. To me she very different from most modern parents.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mia was my favorite because she did not define herself as a victim despite the many problems she had in life at home or at work.


    Which character – as performed by Eleni Pappageorge – was your favorite?

    Couldn't say I was more interested in the plot and the character's development.The narrator's performance was well done. It did not take away from the story but enhanced it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did not want to just read it all at once because it was intense and realistic.

    "Loved this entire series."
    What did you love best about A Matter of Trust?

    I waited until I read all 4 books before I did my review, but I must say that it kept me on the edge waiting to see what would happen next. The friendship of the 3 women was unique and inspiring. Can't wait for the next one.
