THE SHAPE OF TRUST is the 5th book in the “Stand By Me Series” yet it is 100% a stand-alone. It is always fun to see the cameo appearances made by characters from previous stories, so I always recommend reading an entire series for that reason.
Similar to the other stories in the series, THE SHAPE OF TRUST focuses on our M/m as they navigate new situations in life. The characters are well developed and I was immediately invested in each of them. The story has a very clear path from beginning to end and the story-line holds true through the entire telling. There are children as secondary characters that I would like to read about in the future. This would be a fun group to watch grow and morph as the years progress.
“Dog Eared Books” is a fictional bookstore in the story and I hope that everyone has an independent bookstore they frequent in their own town. They are an asset to local communities and bring so much joy to families.
Brinda Berry is definitely an author who I enjoy reading and I always look forward to what she is writing. I will continue to follow her for her stories in the future.
