    This is an intricately woven mystery.

    The character development couldn’t be better in my mind. I am always amazed at how many characters there are in Dee Henderson’s books. I really like seeing how many characters from previous novels make brief appearances in each new book. She truly seems to have “a small world” scenario going on even crossing over from series to series. Along with that she has a marvelous talent for revealing personal information in a subtle way so that it feels like it comes out of a clear blue sky. The cases that are being reexamined in this book are quickly summarized as each one is initially discussed. They over the course of time they are slowly picked apart and looked at from every possible angle. One of the aspects of the search that is covered is the search for cadavers using specially trained dogs. The way that a handler works with a pair of dogs was described in great detail. I was fascinated by the information given. I do want to warn that this is a very heavy book to read emotionally. The subject matter of two of the cases made it a difficult read. On top of that there is a great deal of focus placed on one of the family members who is looking for closure, and the emotions that she has been dealing with for years. I found myself having to take breaks from my reading just to work through the feelings that were stirred up in me for what the characters were dealing with. To me though that is just proof of how good the writing is. I received a free eBook copy of this novel through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Love Her Characters

    What a great read. I was so disappointed that I will have to wait awhile for another Evie Blackwell story.

    Belongs in the romance category, not suspense

    If you're looking for suspense or a "can't put it down, page turner" this isn't for you. Way too much character study dialog and laymen pyschoanalysis. No suspense or drama. The "mysteries" were eventually solved but I was left with the sense of unresolved issues and situations. This is possibly to set up future books with these characters but I won't be reading those to find out. Way too slow and plodding.....sorry because I have enjoyed other DeemHenderson books......

    She's done it again ...

    Another great read from Dee Henderson. Fantastic characters, engaging story, beautifully paced. There's no-one who writes like her. If this book is anything to go by, this will be another great series with more intrigue, and more characters you'd love to meet.

    Great mystery w/ compelling characters

    Traces of Guilt is another intensely emotional, gut wrenching mystery from Dee Henderson. While categorized as a romantic suspense, I would say its more of a mystery with Christian and romantic elements. There are glimpses of romance between the two main characters: Evie and Gabe, but the romantic story is not the primary purpose of the book. The mystery was well written and I found myself following threads right along with the characters, hoping to find the answers at the end. Ms. Henderson sends the reader down several rabbit holes, convinced of the answer long before the final answer presents itself. I found myself wanting it to be each of the ideas the characters explored, because Ms. Henderson presents compelling reasons why each solution could be reality We meet a new cast of characters in Carin, Illinois and also re-engage with favorites from other Dee Henderson books. Ann Falcon. I just love her. From the minute we met her in her own story, through the many subsequent books where Ann makes an appearance, I love her even more. I love the life that she has carved out for herself, the relationship she has with her husband, and the wisdom she brings to each situation she's a part of. I see Ann as the voice of reason and the conscience of the characters in the story. She's a wonderful character and brings an additional depth to any story she's in. Additionally, Ms. Henderson introduces the Thane family and I fell a little bit in love with Gabe from the beginning. The Thane family is a great model family showing how a family can remain close even despite some fundamental differences in faith. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
