Desperate Measures by Sandra Orchard

Kate won't be safe until all of Port Aster's secrets are revealed

Researcher Kate Adams has finally pinpointed the supposed "miracle plant" that tore apart her family years ago. She's certain that discovering its secrets is her only hope of solving the mystery surrounding her father's disappearance. She's willing to risk anything to find the truth, including her relationship with Detective Tom Parker. But with so many people in pursuit of the plant, going it alone might be a fatal mistake.

Award-winning author Sandra Orchard pulls out all the stops in this breakneck and breathtaking conclusion to the Port Aster Secrets series.

My review:
   I have enjoyed this series and have been looking forward to the last book coming out for a while. This series was different from most Christian suspense trilogies in that it had the same main character and plot line for all three books.

  The other two books have been building up to this book, and though they were great reads and I enjoyed them, this book was the best of all three.... but that could be because everything gets wrapped up in this book, and it seems more happens in this book than the others.

  The author kept me guessing in this book as to who the bad guys were and were not, and I had a few surprises at the end of the book. This was a great conclusion to a great series and I enjoyed it a lot, and couldn't put it down. Top notch writing and suspense, just the way I like it.
