Traces of Guilt by Dee Henderson ~ Review

Traces of Guilt (Evie Blackwell Cold Case #1)Astor's Review:

Evie Blackwell loves her job as an Illinois State Police Detective, and though she longs to settle down with a family, she doesn't see how that could work with her demanding career.

Sheriff Thane finds himself working with Evie, on the new special task force, directed at solving cold cases. But as one cold case connects to another, they are determined to find answers, and those closest to them may hold the key to unlocking the case...

Slow to start this isn't quite what I expected, as I am a avid fan of Ms. Henderson, and this book didn't start out with the same spark for me. The first in a series, this book did a great job of laying the foundation for future books, as the book progressed I found myself more drawn to the plot and the characters, it just took a lot of explaining and more chapters than I would have liked to get there--for me personally.

Evie is discerning, and sharp, she sees things that others don't, simply because she know how to look for triggers. She does her best to see the cold cases from every angle. And this is a great realistic book about what professionals do to solve the mystery, and close the case.

Overall, a great start to a new series, with perhaps a different approach than what I am used to though well researched and still a great read. I'm planning on reading the rest of the series for certain! I liked Sheriff Thane and his family, he is very passionate about his job, and does his best to help Evie find the answers she is looking for. Fantastic start to a new series.
