Search For The Truth by Kathryn Freeman Review

Genre: Contemporary romance
Release Date: 13th August 2015
Publisher: Choc Lit

Sometimes the truth hurts … 

When journalist Tess Johnson takes a job at Helix pharmaceuticals, she has a very specific motive. Tess has reason to believe the company are knowingly producing a potentially harmful drug and, if her suspicions are confirmed, she will stop at nothing to make sure the truth comes out. 

Jim Knight is the president of research and development at Helix and is a force to be reckoned with. After a disastrous office affair he’s determined that nothing else will distract him from his vision for the company.
Failure is simply not an option.

As Tess and Jim start working together, both have their reasons for wanting to ignore the sexual chemistry that fires between them. But chemistry, like most things in the world of science, isn’t always easy to control.

I was expecting a little more intrigue, cover-up and sleuthing in this read but as a prohibited office romance with sexual tension while trying to find the truth and do the right thing sort of way, I was drawn into the story. We learned more about Jim than we did Tessa, but enough about both to understand why there were so many conflicted feelings.  While they were not complexly developed, they were still attractive to me as a reader.  I only wanted to slap them once.

I won't spoil the ending but admit I spent several good hours following the trail.

A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance.
Some days a racing 
heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero. 

With two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn't always about hearts and flowers - and heroes come in many disguises.







  1. I'm relieved you only wanted to slap them once! Thank you so much taking the time to read and review Search for the Truth, Laura. It is hugely appreciated.

    1. I am sure you know the scene- right after he fired the scientist and before they were out of the public eye
