For fans of fast-paced intensity and suspense
Trace of Doubt by DiAnn Mills gives readers a wild adventure. The story centers around Shelby Pearce, who just got of prison for murder. She tries to settle down in a small town, but her past haunts her. FBI agent Denton McClure has been tracking her for years, convinced she stole a large amount of money and he’s determined to find it. But he soon finds there’s much more to Shelby’s story, especially when someone wants her dead.
I like the fast-paced intensity of the story. This is more than a traditional who-done-it mystery. As I read, I kept wondering why and tried to figure out motives for several crimes plus the actions of a few characters. The plot is complex and twisted, but it takes on an emotional layer. There’s lots of betrayals and hidden agendas that kept me hooked until the very end. Not everything is as it seems. I’m not usually a fan of first-person points of view, but I liked how this story switched between Shelby and Denton. It worked!
This is a great book for suspense fans! It has a nice level of complexity that made me think as well as be entertained.
5 stars (I loved it, couldn’t put it down)
5 stars (Non-stop edge-of-your-seat suspense from start to finish)
