DiAnn Mills has done it again. She never disappoints her readers. Trace of Doubt is filled with one suspenseful twist after another. Concern for an ex-con, Shelby Pearce’s safety, kept me turning the page. My emotions merged with Shelby’s as I tried to help her get through the disappointments and dangers she faced.
Shelby Pearce gets parole after serving fifteen years for confessing she’d killed her brother-in-law. She tries to get re-established in a small town in Texas but faces public scrutiny. The FBI concluded she’d embezzled five hundred thousand dollars, but no one had ever found the money. FBI Agent Denton McClure is dead-set on proving Shelby hid the money. He wants to locate the cash and prove he was right after keeping track of her since her arrest years ago.
Denton never expects to develop feelings for Shelby, as traces of doubt have him questioning her actual guilt. Her demeanor, actions, attitude, and relationship with Christ have him scratching his head. He becomes determined to find the truth regardless of his feelings.
I give this novel five stars.
