About The Book:

When trust is violated, can it ever be recovered?

Alison Jacobs needs brain surgery and places ultimate trust in her sister’s husband, Grant Kaplan, a world-renowned neurosurgeon and expert in treating her condition. But Grant is hiding a dark secret which threatens the outcome: an addiction to prescription pills. As Alison struggles to rebuild her life, Grant’s daughter, Sadie, spends more time with a new friend. Frustrated that her parents exclude her from the conversations about her beloved aunt, Sadie makes increasingly risky choices which could endanger not only her, but her entire family.

Alison is also harboring her own secret-an extramarital affair with a woman. Her close call with mortality spurs her to take a closer look at her marriage, explore her newfound sexuality and figure out what she wants for her future. How will she rebuild her life and move forward? Can she find a way to repair her broken relationship with her only sister?

Secrets swirling around drug use and sexual identity must be dealt with in order for the family to learn to trust each other again.

Heather Frimmer’s gripping novel pulled me in from the first page. Better To Trust is a nuanced exploration of secrets, identity, and family. Told with equal parts insight and intrigue, the story reminds us that we never know what those closest to us may be carrying inside. This compelling blend of medicine and mystery will keep readers turning pages to the end. Saumya Dave (WELL-BEHAVED INDIAN WOMEN)

Heather Frimmer’s latest novel, Better to Trust, is an unforgettable story in which lives are literally at stake. Whether facing a critical operation, the potential destruction of an esteemed career or the conjunction of marriage with unresolved sexuality, a triumph of voices emerges—entangled yet somehow harmonic as a symphony. Frimmer’s richly hewn and deeply connected characters draw you in and stay with you long after the book is closed. Maureen Joyce Connolly (LITTLE LOVELY THINGS)

Tense, insightful and full of heart, Heather Frimmer’s Better to Trust tackles complex themes of opioid addiction, sexuality, medical ethics and family ties. Populated with intriguing, multidimensional characters, it will keep you engrossed until the end. Daniela Petrova (HER DAUGHTER’S MOTHER)
