Review of Linda J White's Seeds of Evidence


 
 
About the Book:
Stressed-out FBI Special Agent Kit McGovern returns to her grandmother’s Chincoteague Island home in search of peace. But when a little boy’s body washes up on the beach, Kit cannot resist throwing herself into the mystery of his murder. Her only clues: the tomato seeds in the Latino boy’s gut, and the acorns in his pockets.
The medical examiner points out that the volume of tomato seeds in the boy’s gut could indicate he was from a farm worker’s family. But the acorns? Kit discovers they’re from a Virginia live oak, not native to the area where the boy was found. Can she use those to identify his origins anyway? And why hasn’t anyone reported him missing?
Kit meets David O’Connor, a D.C. homicide detective in Chincoteague recovering from a shooting incident. She makes it clear she’s not interested in a relationship, but their passion for justice is mutual and they soon forge a partnership to find the boy’s murderer. As plant DNA evidence leads them straight into the dark world of human trafficking, Kit and David wrestle with the depths of human evil, with questions of faith, and with possibilities for hope. “Seeds of Evidence” takes readers on a white-knuckle ride they won’t soon forget.

 My Review:
 
This was a fast paced book that kept my attention throughout.  It had action from beginning to end and was hard to put down.  The book was so well written that I felt that I knew the characters.  Kit is a character that is strong, but in a way she is also vulnerable because she has never gotten over her mother leaving and her husband leaving her.  She is afraid to love again.  But after she learns to listen to GOD and give her troubles to him, she learns that she can love.  David, is also a strong character and is determined to do the right thing.  If you are looking for an edge or your seat read that will keep you involved, then this is the story for you.  Great job, Linda, I really enjoyed this book.
 
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
