Product Description


“This suspenseful first in a new series from Wiehl and Henry opens with a bang.” ---Publishers Weekly (Publishers Weekly)

“Wiehl begins an exciting new series with prosecutor Mia at the center. The side storyline about bullying is timely and will hit close to home for many.” ---RT Book Reviews, 4 stars (RT Book Reviews)

Product Description

When life is murder, who can you trust?

One minute Mia Quinn is in her basement, chatting on the phone with a colleague at the prosecutor’s office. The next minute she hears a gunshot over the line, and Mia listens in horror as her colleague and friend Colleen bleeds to death.

Mia’s a natural for heading up the murder investigation, but these days it’s all she can do to hold her life together. As a new widow with a pile of debts, a troubled teenaged son, and a four-year-old who wakes up screaming at night, she needs more time with her family, not less—and working Colleen’s case will be especially demanding. But Colleen was her friend, and she needs to keep her job. So Mia reluctantly teams up with detective Charlie Carlson to investigate. But the deeper they dig, the more complications unfold—even the unsettling possibility that someone may be coming after her.

Lis Wiehl’s signature plot twists and relatable characters shine in this absorbing series debut . . . with an intriguing cameo from her best-selling Triple Threat series.


“A stunning crime series debut . . . Smart, suspenseful, and full of twists that only an insider like Wiehl could pull off .” —Linda Fairstein, New York Times best-selling author

"A Matter of Trust" is a non-stop action ride that will have your pulse accelerating from the first chapter! It's every bit as good as the previous books written by Wiehl and Henry, and features my favorite character created by Wiehl thus far. Mia Quinn is bright, competent, and gutsy, and yet she also is fully human and makes mistakes, wishes she were a better parent, and sometimes struggles to know how she'll handle everything life throws at her. As such, she's a character that readers will instantly be able to connect with, and she's so likeable that they will be cheering her on as she works to unravel the truth and find justice. I loved the two parallel plot lines that are woven together in this book, the first involving finding out who murdered Mia's friend and co-worker Colleen, and the second involving holding a group of high-school bullies accountable for contributing to another student's act of suicide. The combination makes for a compelling read with plenty of suspense, some deeply emotional scenes, and several twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages. The possibilities of future romance for Mia that are developed in this novel were also a nice touch, and it will be interesting to see what develops.

Readers who love a well-written suspense novel are absolutely going to love "A Matter of Trust". I found it impossible to put down, and I am eagerly anticipating the next installment in the series. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

HASH(0xb249dd38) out of 5 stars Entertaining April 4 2013
By Spontaneous Joy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was looking for an entertaining book and A Matter of Trust by Lis Wiehl with April Henry certainly fit the bill. The main character, Mia Quinn, is a Seattle prosecutor and is talking with a colleague on the phone one evening only to be horrified to hear a shot ring out and hear no response from her friend. Mia is then given her colleague's murder case to solve, along with the help of a police detective with whom she has an unpleasant history.

The book is fast-paced and fairly well written. I found the plot line a little confusing at times but maybe that is just because it is a murder mystery and the author wants the reader to be in the dark a little. I enjoyed the inevitable twist at the end.

I felt that a few of the minor story lines were not well developed and either should have been given more time or else left out entirely as they were a distraction. However, I note that this is the first book of the series so perhaps some of those story lines will be teased out in later books. I also didn't think that the main character was always believable or even as well developed as she could have been.

I thought this book was pretty good and I read through it quickly so if you are looking for a beach read for the summer, I would recommend it. If you are looking for something with more character development or something to really think about, I would keep looking.

I received this book for free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

HASH(0xb24c38dc) out of 5 stars When Murder Stalks Your Colleagues, Who Can You Trust? March 19 2013
By Nancy Famolari - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Prosecutor Mia Quinn is on the phone with her friend and colleague, Colleen, when the unthinkable happens. She hears a shot. When Colleen doesn't answer, she thrusts the phone at the son telling him to try to talk to her and after calling the police rushes to Colleen's house where her friend is bleeding to death. Mia arrives too late. Detective Charlie Carlson picks up the phone Colleen was on and hears screams on the other end. Whatever's happening it's in Mia's house, and it's her daughter.

From the heart-stopping opening to the exciting conclusion, this book it's hard to put down. The characters are sympathetic. Mia, a recent widow, is trying to raise her two children and hold on to her job in the District Attorney's office - not an easy task. Charlie is the kind of police officer you love. He doesn't mind taking chances, and he's there when you need him. After Colleen's death, Mia is tapped as the lead for the murder investigation, and Charlie is the detective assigned -- an excellent combination for a contentious partnership.

If you want a mystery that keeps you guessing right to the end, this is a winner. Although the search is on from the first pages for the killer, it comes as a surprise at the end. However, there are enough clues that the solution is not out of the blue. A well done mystery.

I reviewed this book for the Thomas Nelson Booksneeze Program.

HASH(0xb24da0fc) out of 5 stars The perfect amount of mystery and suspense, along with characters you want to spend time with and get to know better May 30 2013
By - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Author Lis Wiehl is a prominent trial lawyer who regularly appears on Fox News Channel as a legal analyst and reporter. She is also a bestselling author of five books. Her Triple Threat Club series has received high praise, warranting comparisons to James Patterson. Now Wiehl introduces us to a brand-new series, written with contributor April Henry. A MATTER OF TRUST is the first book in the Mia Quinn Mystery series.

A couple of months ago, Mia Quinn lost her husband in a car accident, forcing her to return to work full-time as a county prosecutor. This is quite an adjustment, not only for her but also her two children. Gabe is 14, just entering high school, and wants to fit in with his peers. Brooke is four, and has recently started waking up with night terrors. Mia is struggling to be everything she needs to be for her kids, and also maintain her reputation as an excellent prosecutor. To add to her stress, she has discovered a few secrets her husband had been keeping before he died, including a mound of debt that is now hers to dig out from under.

Mia is chatting on the phone with her fellow colleague and friend, Colleen, when suddenly there's a loud bang and the sound of her friend hitting the floor. Horrified, Mia listens to Colleen's final breaths. She is offered the chance to head up the investigation into Colleen's death. Mia balks, not sure if she can afford to spend more time away from home. Then she thinks of the bills piling up, and how she wants to do whatever she can to solve her friend's murder, so she accepts the job. She starts working with Detective Charlie Colson to uncover the clues into Colleen's slaying. And there are plenty of suspects to keep them busy.

Meanwhile, Mia is also bringing a case to the Grand Jury regarding the suicide of a high school boy. Darin Dane hung himself after extensive bullying --- both physical and cyber --- by several classmates. Mia is looking to hold the boys responsible and accountable for the bullying that caused Darin to take his own life. This is a sad, yet relevant and riveting subplot.

The main storyline, of course, is the mystery of Colleen's murder. Wiehl's real-life legal experience brings the story to life with authenticity and energy that grips and fascinates. It's a constant case of whodunit, with lots of bumps and forks in the road along the way. Mia is one smart chick, completely professional and vulnerable at the same time. She is everywoman. She is the woman who wants to do it all and can't quite figure out how. But, as a friend advised, "Where your feet are, that's where your heart should be." So that's how Mia tries to operate, although in her heart-of-hearts, she knows that her family --- her kids --- will always come first. There are also a couple of potential love interests that could develop in subsequent books.

A MATTER OF TRUST is an intense, fast-paced thriller --- a true page-turner. It combines the perfect amount of mystery and suspense, along with characters you want to spend time with and get to know better. Although published by Thomas Nelson, this book doesn't contain a lot of "Christian" content, but rather infuses bits and pieces of faith within. It's clear in this first book of the series that Mia has a bit of developing to do regarding her spiritual condition. I personally enjoyed the overall "real-world" feel and appreciated the lack of preachiness. If gritty crime fiction is not your cup of tea, you would do well to leave this one on the shelf. But if you're a fan of authors like James Patterson and Harlan Coben, be sure to add Lis Wiehl to your list. You won't be disappointed.

HASH(0xb28443f0) out of 5 stars A Matter of Trust June 11 2013
By Beanshappy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A Matter of Trust: A Mia Quinn Mystery by Lis Wiehl with April Henry is a book about Mia who is just coming back to the King County Prosecutor's Office after the death of her husband following a time where she was a stay at home mother. Colleen was Mia's best friend and a fellow prosecutor at King County. They were getting ready for a yard sale to help Mia pay off bills that her husband had acquired. When Mia heard a shot fired on the other end of the phone, she had to check on her friend. This started a case of finding out who killed her best friend and mentor. She was afraid that the shooter was after all the prosecutors in King County so she was always looking over her shoulder. She had to take care of herself so she could take care of her two children.

I would recommend this book to a friend. There were some things in the book that I couldn't follow. In the end of the book, a character named Jonas was called Jonah. Another thing I found was that it mentioned Sunday and the event took place on Saturday. Overall the book was great.

I was given this book free of charge by booksneeze in exchange for my honest opinion.

HASH(0xb2679ed0) out of 5 stars A nice one-time read June 29 2013
By Melanie - Published on
Format: Hardcover
2.5 stars

A Matter of Trust is the first book I've read by Lis Wiehl and, while it's definitely not a favorite, I did still like the book.

The first and last few chapters of this book were really good and very suspenseful, but the middle of A Matter of Trust, when the story seemed to be more about relationship and family issues with little to no suspense, was kind of boring to me and I had a hard time connecting with it.

The mystery was good and I didn't guess who Colleen's killer was until a couple chapters before the reveal. I found it interesting how Mia was working on two different cases at the same time - made for an unique story.

Overall, A Matter of Trust was a nice one-time read. If you tend to like slower-paced books with suspense and some legal aspects, I think you might enjoy A Matter of Trust. I don't know whether or not I'll be reading the next Mia Quinn book.
