BOOK BLITZ REVIEW: The Burden of Trust by Tabitha Dye

Title: The Burden of Trust
Author: Tabitha Dye
Genre: Contemporary, Women's Fiction
Release Date: October 18, 2013
Cover Design: Tabitha Dye
The Burden of Trust is a love filled drama about an arrogant actor who accidentally falls head over heels with a lesbian who has a dark twisted past.
As a last resort, Kate found herself in the hospital chapel; even though she wasn’t a religious person, she needed guidance more than she had ever imagined. Sitting in silence with maybe one other person, Kate was unsure of how this was done. It had been three months since Kerri had fallen into her coma, and Kate had begun to lose her faith about recovery. Her eyes closed and her hands folded in a prayer pose; she didn’t pay any attention when someone sat down in her pew, but continued to pray. A soft, drawling voice spoke to her and rattled her nerves. Kate had prepared herself for this moment; it would only be a matter of time before they showed up. 

This is a new author I have never read and I don't really know how to start with this review... I guess I will start by saying this is a story is about love, loss and moving on.

Our heroine was married to a wonderful woman that she lost. She spent years trying to recover from her wife's death and then she meets c**ky actor Chris, who has his own issues. They become friends and he falls in love with her but she only sees him as a friend.

I know the heroine had a tragic past but she was very self-absorbed. He did everything for her that I would love for a man to do for me and she just kept pushing him off. It made me mad that he just kept taking it and wouldn't stand up to her.

Then secrets about the wife's death are released and that causes drama. I got excited at this point because the story picked up and I wanted to know what was going to happen. The heroine blames it all on Chris and kicks him out of her life, but he still tries to take care of her. When she learns the truth, I was sure she would realize that she was wrong about Chris and that she did indeed love him, but that was wishful thinking on my part. The story went from the drama into an almost love triangle and then dropped off into a cliffy that just ended... no build-up to the cliffy like most do.

I felt like there were characters and information that could have been left out and I think this book has the potential to be really good, it just needs some more work for me. That is just how I felt though, so please don't take my words to heart because it could be a completely different story for you.
