A Man to Trust is the kind of sweet romance I love to read when I’m in the mood for something to just relax with and be entertained. But make no mistake, this story has some meat to it; a valuable, moral takeaway. For one, it deals with trust, as evidenced in the title. Adrie Chandler had been bilked by her fiancé. And now, she’s afraid to get too close to Ross Peterson, for fear he’ll hurt her, too.

Adrie wants to follow a life-long dream of playing the flute in a symphony, but she has to leave Bayside to do it. Before she can do that, she and her grandmother must find a new manager to replace her in her grandmother’s bookstore. Enter Ross Peterson. He fits the bill perfectly, but Adrie is afraid to trust that he’ll stay at the store, and not take a photography position first chance he gets. In some ways, Ross reminds Adrie of her ex-fiance—and of a dream she had to let go of: Marriage. Yet Ross turns out to be more dependable than she thought. Suddenly, Adrie isn’t sure what she wants anymore. Maybe, just maybe, that once elusive dream isn’t so unattainable anymore.

Woven into the story are such issues as, parent/child relationships, forgiveness, letting go, seeking God’s guidance, and others. Together, these elements make for a 3-dimentional tale of renewed trust, old fears, and new love. The characters are not merely cardboard cut-outs, but have real depth, and act realistically. All in all, I did enjoy reading this novel, and the story kept me turning the pages. I highly recommend it to all that like to read sweet romances.
