Review

"With a perfect blend of suspense and romance, this is a thrilling and ultimately satisfying read!" 
--Ann Tatlock, Christy award-winning author of Promises to Keep.

From the Author

Winner of the HOLT Medallion for Best Book by a Virginia Author and an Award of Merit for Romantic Suspense
Finalist, RWA National Reader's Choice Awards for Romantic Suspense, 2014
"Seeds of Evidence" is a very personal book to me for two big reasons: First, it's set on Chincoteague Island, in Virginia, a barrier island famous for its ponies. My grandparents lived there when I was a kid, and I just wanted to evoke that place--the birds, the marshes, the smell of the salt air, the sturdy people. Secondly, Seeds exposes the horrible crime of human trafficking. Millions of people worldwide are held in bondage for sex or labor purposes. It's even happening here, in the United States. The first step to ending trafficking is becoming aware of it. 
I loved writing Seeds! I hope readers will enjoy it, too!

Format: Paperback
Seeds of Evidence by Linda J White is a suspense readers treasure trove. Chincoteague, one of Virginia's most idyllic locations, is painted in intrigue when the body of a young boy washes up on the beach. Kit McGovern, an FBI agent on vacation, dives into the case which expands from the death of a boy into the tawdry world of human trafficking. All the while she is wrestling with her insecurities and questions about life and relationships and an unexpected attraction. She collides with a Washington DC cop David O'Connor who is seeking healing for his shoulder and his heart in the quietness of the sleepy island.

White creates convincing characters and a setting that you can see, hear, and smell. Chincoteaugue comes to life. Her knowledge of world of FBI agents is evident throughout the book. The issue of human trafficking is obviously something that White is passionate about and something readers should be more deeply aware. And the plot is constantly moving forward, unlike some other suspense novels I've read lately!

It's a story that's complex enough to keep you turning pages, but light enough to sweep you away while listening to the lapping of the waves at the beach.

Pick it up now to have for vacation this summer!

I loved Seeds of Evidence from beginning to end. This superbly written, suspenseful plot had twists that I had me turning pages as fast as I could. A wonderful character crafter, White gets into the souls of the characters as she shows the reader how Kit and David's pasts affect their struggles with solving the murder of a young boy, their developing attraction to each other, and their faith. Seeds is also full of richly descriptive scenes and unusual, well researched forensic evidence. What a pleasure to read a good, contemporary thriller with wholesome Christian values! I enthusiastically recommend Seeds of Evidence!!

Linda J. White has captured the lure of the sand and sea in her book Seeds of Evidence. Her descriptions of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands off the Coast of Virginia are extremely well-written, capturing life along the ocean.

The first page draws you into the mystery as Kit McGovern jogs along the beach and comes upon a young child's body. The story has a thoughtful mystery (clues to keep your brain at work), suspense without horror, and developed characters.

Kit seems a little crusty at first but we soon learn that between her job in the FBI and her personal life, there are reasons for that. White delves into her characters and gives them motivation for their actions.

Romance develops between Kit and D.C. Homicide Detective David O'Connor as they investigate the boy's death. David has his personal struggles as well and a hidden reason for being on the island.

An extra bonus is that White's husband was in the FBI for 25 years, and the procedures we see in the book are--for the most part--real.

I enjoyed the book, the mystery, the way faith played a part in the characters' lives, and that the book was clean (no unnecessary cursing, gore or sexual scenes) which is what I expect from a Christian writer and Christian publisher.

Good job, Linda. I'm looking forward to the next one.

FBI Special Agent Kit McGovern is taking some much needed, if not really wanted, vacation time on her childhood island. During her time there, she stumbles upon the body of a young boy. With instinct taking over, she commands the case over the objections of her boss, but she is sure that there is more to this case than what's on the surface. Policeman David O'Connor is exiling himself after a shooting in D.C. in which a young kid was killed. Though he was cleared in the case, he was ready to hang up his gun until his boss talked him into time off. David is staying in Kit's grandmother's old house, fixing it up in exchange for his staying there. The paths of these two law enforcement officers cross and nothing is the same again. David works his way into a job with some possible smugglers in an effort to find out how the boy was killed. As the case heats up, another body is found and David gets further undercover. What is going on on this island? Will David's undercover position be revealed? Who was the young boy and why was he killed? And the answer is..... PSYCH! Go buy the book if you're so interested.

What a great story! I picked this up yesterday morning and by this evening I was finished. Ms. White has a terrific way of hooking her ready by putting action in each of her chapters. It gives you the feeling that, "I have to finish one more chapter to see how things end". I'm not much of a romance person, but Ms. White only put so much into this book to provide a deeper story line for her characters. She shows characters that struggle not only with their daily working lives, but with their relationship with Him as well. I love seeing characters that aren't cardboard, ones that have to spend time with Him in order to have a better understanding of Him.

I am a reader and a writer of romantic suspense.
Linda J. White has given us a fast paced story, well researched and well written. I fell behind a little in the first pages, but quickly connected and found the story hard to put down.

Linda invites us into the psyche of FBI agent, Kit, who has suffered relational disappointment she cannot successfully analyze. Her divorce along with her rocky professional relationships drives her to her preferred vacation spot, Chincoteague, VA, hoping to gain perspective during her time of rest.

David, homicide detective, on leave following a shooting incident that leaves him troubled and distracted. He too is in need of perspective. He ends up on on the quiet, provincial island of Chincoteague, VA. for an extended sabbatical.

Our heroes cannot resist the call for justice when they come upon the body of a Latino boy on the Assateaugue beach. Their investigative journey will challenge their professional skills as well as their personal struggles. They must meet their "demons" head-on and emerge from this season with a matured understanding of themselves and the Savior who will never let them go.

Accurate description of the beautiful Chincoteague/Assateaugue scene which I know well. I love the god-conscious feel of the story journey. Linda's story is realistic, yet faith filled.

I recommend Seeds of Evidence, an exciting, encouraging read.
