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!
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
