It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what genre Rebecca Graf’s “Trust Me” belongs to because it has mystery, suspense, action and romance all rolled into one. Her other works include the Connections Trilogy, the Mythical Adventures series and children’s books.
In “Trust Me” Ranalla is a young woman trying to move on with her life after experiencing several setbacks. It starts off with her settling into a new apartment and then the pace switches to suspense as she is kidnapped from her room in the middle of the night by an unknown assailant who reassures her he is just trying to save her life. When she regains consciousness she finds herself in a different location and her kidnapper doesn’t seem dangerous and seems to know more about her than she knows about him.
They spend time in hiding getting to know each other and this is where it could have turned into a cheesy romance novel but luckily it didn’t. Eventually they have to leave the secure location and they find themselves running for their lives. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep it interesting especially towards the end where their back stories begin to unravel.
At a mere 134 pages “Trust Me” reads like a short story but it has enough character development and story to keep the reader interested but the ending feels a bit abrupt. Regardless it is a good read and a page turner that can easily be finished in a day or two.
