For Fans of Small Town Settings and Family Drama
Trial and Error by Robert Whitlow brings readers to a small town with plenty of secrets. Buddy Smith is an attorney who helps track down missing children, including his daughter. He teams up with the new detective in town along with his long-time friend Gracie Blaylock to try to find a local teen who may be tangled up with some unsavory people.
The storyline for Trial and Error is a touching one. Readers see the transformation of Buddy as he lets go of his past and finds true faith in God. The mother of his child took off with no warning, and Buddy hasn’t seen his daughter since she was born. There are several interesting characters, including Maleah, a detective who helps Buddy on his quest to find missing children. The story is more of a cozy drama than a legal thriller. Not much action in the courtroom, and not much action in general. It’s overall a good storyline but not if you are looking for a suspense-filled legal drama.
4 stars (I liked it a lot and would definitely recommend)
