The Shape of Trust is the fifth book in the Stand By Me series by Brinda Berry. This series just seems to get better and better with each new release. I have really loved this series, so when this book was released I knew I just had to read it- but I wasn’t sure I would love it as much as the other four books. Well, I should never have doubted Ms. Berry, because the characters and storyline won me over immediately, and this book has now become my favourite of the series.
As with the other books, Ms. Berry has produced a wonderful story with a superb plot and a captivating storyline. Added to that were her endearing, fully developed, and somewhat quirky characters- the combination of these pulled me into the story and kept me wrapped up in all the developments. I was so completely emotionally invested in every detail. I couldn’t put it down, as I really had to know how things would play out- so I ended up reading it all in one sitting. Web and Lily Rose are such fantastic characters, but it’s little Julianne who really stole the show!
Ms. Berry manages to instil bucketloads of charm and emotion into her stories and characters- which gives her books a real heart & soul.
I really recommend this book- you’ll be bound to love it just as much as I have!
I can’t wait to get my hands on her next book!
Thank you, Ms. Berry.
