Trust In Me

Trust in Me (Lean on Me) by Kathryn Shay

Book 3: Lean On Me

As kids, the stock car racing town of Glen Oaks called them The Outlaws. Who knew the hoodlums on the street would grow up to be upstanding citizens?

Their leader, Linc, has become a minister, but never got over his first love, Margo, now an atheist because of her upbringing in a religious cult. Beth is lonely after the death of her husband Danny, until Tucker, the man who blames himself for Danny’s death, comes to town. And Annie has overcome emotional and physical scars from her youthful marriage to Joe, but will her progress be enough when he reenters her life?

In TRUST IN ME, troubled teen Ronny reunites them, and in trying to help the boy, the three couples uncover a passion for each other that can no longer be denied.

“This is definitely another hit for Kathryn Shay. The story is well written and easy to follow…it involves some very deep issues which some authors may not cover quite as well as Shay does. The characters are very real, likeable, compassionate and understanding even with the issues they are faced with.”
