Love, love, love this book! I have read most of Robin Carroll's books, but somehow missed the first two in this series. That didn't cause any problems in reading this one, but I have to say those two books are now on my must read list.
Strands of Deception is one of the most intriguing suspenseful romance stories I've read in a long time. It incorporates all my favorite CSI and NCIS elements in a murder mystery that has more twists and turns than a roller coaster. Just when you think you have the perpetrator nailed, another twist comes at you. I never would have guessed the end! Only thing that disappointed me about this book was that it ended....I was ready for lots more fun with these characters. I hope this isn't the last book in the series. I'd love to read a book about Eva (hint, hint).
This book kept me on the edge of my airplane seat for three subsequent flights! I didn't even realize there was enough turbulence to terrify my seat partner because of all the turbulence in this book. Another winner by Robin Caroll.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Born and raised in Louisiana, Robin Caroll is a southerner through and through. Her passion has always been to tell stories to entertain others. Robin’s mother, bless her heart, is a genealogist who instilled in Robin the deep love of family and pride of heritage—two aspects Robin weaves into each of her books.
When she isn’t writing, Robin spends time with her husband of twenty-plus years, her 3 beautiful daughters, 2 precious grandsons, and their character-filled pets at home—in the South, where else?
ABOUT THE BOOK
When Gina Ford, the daughter of a prominent Tennessee politician, goes missing from the University of Memphis a week after another girl was murdered on the same campus, police call in the FBI. Nick Hagar, married to his job as Special Agent in Charge, is assigned to the case, and when Gina’s body is found, her father demands justice.
Maddie Baxter is the forensic expert running DNA tests from the crime scene. When they come back without a match, Nick asks her to do a familial DNA run that yields a shocking result: the prime suspect is Adam Alexander, the very same guy who broke Maddie’s heart when she was in college.
But do scientific advancements tell the whole story? Strand of Deception offers romance, suspense, and a lively debate about the impact of DNA testing, for better or worse, on the United States justice system.
