Owen Hart never intended to
leave David. It’s his biggest regret—but he didn’t have a choice. Now that the problems
that forced him away have been resolved, Owen has returned to make amends, and
reclaim the man he loves…if David will let him. If he won’t, their second
chance at happiness doesn’t stand a chance.
FOUNDATION OF TRUST is the
newest release in A.M. Arthur’s COST OF REPAIRS series. Be aware that David was
first introduced when he became business partners with Rey in book 4, ACTS OF
FAITH, so reading it first might be beneficial.
I appreciate that I don’t
need to worry about the books in this series sounding alike. Despite living in
the same town, the characters have totally different personalities, problems
and histories. Yes, David is a caterer but that’s his only similarity with Rey.
The author has really outdone himself in creating
a unique history and medical issues for David to deal with. The details of what
happened to his family, and the pain and fear he still feels following his
diagnosis is handled nicely. Then there’s David’s past with Owen. What a mess.
When Owen came back I didn’t expect the twists the author used to explain away
his sudden disappearance. Wow. The details are vivid, well placed within the
plot and give a good look into Owen’s past…and no, I’m not giving away any
spoilers. But hint—there are some interesting revelations as the plot
Having Rey, one of my series
favorites, reappear as a secondary character was a nice bonus for me. He helps
to ground the catering/business aspect of David’s life. Overall, the book has a
smooth pace with an interesting plot, well developed character personalities,
and there aren’t any dangling threads I remember. Oh, and I can’t forget to
mention Owen’s son. I really enjoyed this young man. He and his attitude
definitely added a little angst-filled spice to Owen’s life.
I don’t have a clue as to
who will be the featured leads in the next release, but
I’ll be watching for its release. I hope you will be too.
