Read full description of the books:
What can I say about Trudy, the fourth book of the Cedar Cove Chronicles? In one word: WOW. I was hooked on the author’s books from the get-go, but she has really outdone herself with this one. By far my absolute favorite of the series, it is also longer than the previous 3, but in spite of that fact, I found myself not wanting the book to end! Sometimes with books that impress this much it can be hard to find the words to describe them, but I’ll try.
We begin with being introduced to Trudy, who we had seen briefly in the first book as a close friend of Todd Jansan’s older sister, Libby. She and her young son, Toby, are fleeing an abusive home in the opening pages, one that has been fraught with terrible domestic violence. We see her after she has plucked up the courage to come back to the home she had run away from. I’m glad that the author starts us out at this point, we do get plenty of flashbacks to the abuse she and her son have endured over the years, but I’m thankful that we don’t have to go through the heartache of seeing her treated that way over the course of an entire book before she makes the decision to leave. She’s shown to be a fierce mother, who will do anything for her son, although she is deeply afraid of returning home, she knows she has to get them away from her abusive husband, as his treatment of them is only worsening.
She comes home, scared of rejection from her family due to the fact that she ran away six years prior to us coming in, and has not been in touch with them since. To make it worse, it was her own sister’s boyfriend that she ran off with, (her sister actually dodged a bullet there, both girls would have been far better off if Mark Gideon had never entered their lives, but then we wouldn’t have a story, of course).
As Trudy returns home and is picking up the fragments of her life, her husband comes after her. Mark Gideon is an interesting villain to say the least. One thing that Mrs. Ulmer has always been good at is writing intriguing villains who are never simply one dimensional. We learn there is a reason behind Mark’s behavior and actions. He’s a very calculating individual, definitely one of the most psychologically interesting villains I’ve read in a while. His background is highly original and engaging, he is all at once intimidating and fascinating.
As the story progresses, Trudy and her son start to have a somewhat normal life in Cedar Cove, becoming less fractured as they go. The healing process has begun and Trudy reconnects with those she had long ago left behind. However, once she learns that Mark Gideon is after her and their son, the bit of happiness they had begun to build is threatened. I can’t say too much without giving everything away, but this is truly a gem to read.
My favorite of the series yet, I almost find it hard to review because I want to say so much about the various events that take place in the book but I also don’t want to give any spoilers away! This is a story of epic proportions, drama, thriller, mystery, and redemption at its best. The book does leave on a cliffhanger, but not to worry! There’s a follow up book to Trudy, the fifth book in the series picks up exactly where this one leaves off. You’ll want to immediately have it on hand to jump right into as soon as you finish up Trudy. Accurately titled Mark, we get to delve even deeper into his character’s psyche than we even do in this one. Which I am finishing up now and will promptly review as soon as I am finished with it, just do yourself a favor and pick this up! You will not regret it.
