I have been a fan of the author, Dee Henderson’s work for many years. Many, many years (I am not confessing how many) but I was delighted when I discovered Dee Henderson’s Evie Blackwell series. The first book, which I found in my library, is called Traces of Guilt and now the story continues with Threads of Suspicion, released May 2nd, 2017.
I am not a speed reader, so I found myself wishing I could read faster so that I could find out who the guilty one was….Evie and her cold case task force have cases to solve and in the end, the solution is so obvious, I can’t even give you a hint, it would spoil the whole thing. How did I not notice? Anyway, the story is written in classic Dee Henderson style, the pieces of the puzzle of these murders, how they happened and who did it. coming together piece by piece. Layers behind this is Evie’s personal dilemma. She has a marriage proposal on the table and she is hesitant to say “yes” for reasons she can’t explain.
David is Evie’s co-worker and it is a good thing he is already taken….he is superstar Maggie’s guy. You will quickly fall in love with him, his heart and character are enduring, and although he has a personal dilemma of his own, the way he treats Maggie and the women in his life gives him five stars in my book.
(SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVE NOT READ BOOK 1) Ok, I confess, I secretly wanted Evie to end up with the guy from Traces of Guilt, but I guess that is not going to happen. Although……you never know what is going to happen in the next book? The romance in this book is very light and almost of a more mature nature, no raging hormones and stolen kisses.
The pace of the book is steady and keeps you turning pages.
I anxiously await book 3 in the Evie Blackwell Cold Case Series.
I received a copy of this book on Netgalley and my opinion is my own
