Three months have passed since the events of The Wrong Woman.
Saskia is now working part-time with Jaiden, who is struggling to hide her feelings for her new friend and coworker.
Saskia thought Jaiden was flirting with her when she invited her to work "undercover", and she's frustrated that their private investigations have never wandered even remotely close to the erotic.
Neither Jaiden nor Saskia have had much luck with love. But when they finally kiss, it feels different...passionate...and unconditional.
Then a major problem comes crashing into Jaiden's life and her first instinct is to hide it.
And as secrets and lies start to spiral out of control, Saskia questions whether she should ever have trusted Jaiden with her already wounded heart.
A Question of Trust is the sixth novel by Jane Retzig and sequel to her popular lesbian mystery romance The Wrong Woman.

Good sequel, but not what you expect
This is the sequel to "the Wrong Woman". But before you go and expect a crime mystery with a murder and false suspicions, cross that from your list. There is mystery, but not on that scale.
Instead, the author chooses to tell the story of two of my favourite characters from the first book: Saskia and Jaden. It is their story. Two flawed, but lovable characters who fall for each other or better they tumble into misunderstandings and white lies.
"A Question of Trust" is exactly that: an exploration of insecurities, false pride and the importance to tell your loved one what is troubling you. Therein lies the mystery of the book.
It is a refreshing read, as it does not follow any of the patterns that we are used to. Saskia and Jaden get together right in the beginning. In the course of the book, they don't share much time with each other. Yet their story develops. If you are curious how that can be - well, read the book or even better listen to the audio. Ann Day Jones has again done a beautiful job of bringing the characters to life, especially Saskia.
All in all, I would say that Jane Retzig has done a good job with the sequel. As in her other books, the characters are convincingly realistic, with real-life problems and real-life choices. Everybody knows we should trust our partner, yet in day-to-day life, we often choose to keep ourselves hidden and we don't trust the other to still love us, despite our faults.
