Description (Taken from Goodreads):
Someone in the government has files about Ganzfield...and now they have Maddie. The story continues with the fourth installment of the Ganzfield series.
As the title alludes, Accused starts with Maddie in the midst of some legal drama. As the story progresses, there are the occasional minder gatherings, fire-starting sparks, and good ol’ Trevor being as romantic as ever. Accused is much more character-driven than the previous installments, but this allows for a great deal of character growth.
Maddie and Trevor grow individually, and as a couple. Their relationship strengthens even more – didn’t think that was even possible – as they go through hell together. The secondary characters aren’t around as much as they usually are, but we get to see a very pregnant Rachel and get glimpses of the next generation of G-positives through her very talented, yet-to-be-born baby. Seth is around a bit more and I loved it. His big brother relationship with Maddie is cute and protective, and his dry humor lightens the mood.
Accused is another wonderful installment in a perfectly executed series. Kate Kaynak has delivered yet another fresh tale with endearing and entertaining characters, a storyline that continues to thicken, and a romance that has found a way to sizzle without fail. Accused has whet my appetite for even more G-positive adventures and I’m wicked excited to see exactly where Maddie will go next and what will happen in her future.
