Trace of Doubt by DiAnn Mills {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

Bestselling and award-winning author DiAnn Mills delivers a heart-stopping story of dark secrets, desperate enemies, and dangerous lies.

Fifteen years ago, Shelby Pearce confessed to murdering her brother-in-law and was sent to prison. Now she’s out on parole and looking for a fresh start in the small town of Valleysburg, Texas. But starting over won’t be easy for an ex-con.

FBI Special Agent Denton McClure was a rookie fresh out of Quantico when he was first assigned the Pearce case. He’s always believed Shelby embezzled five hundred thousand dollars from her brother-in-law’s account. So he’s going undercover to befriend Shelby, track down the missing money, and finally crack this case.

But as Denton gets closer to Shelby, he begins to have a trace of doubt about her guilt. Someone has Shelby in their crosshairs. It’s up to Denton to stop them before they silence Shelby―and the truth―forever.

I've only read just a few books by DiAnn Mills before this one, but after reading Trace of Doubt I have to say she is definitely one name that I will be watching out for. Each of the books that I have read from her have been quite unique--- not just from each other, but from others in the genre as well. I love the unique storylines she offers, and this one was no different. 

Just released from prison after a 15 year sentence for murder, Shelby is looking for a fresh start, but it seems someone isn't ready to let her have it. This book grabbed me from page one and didn't let up right through to the end. I must admit, I did figure out one of the pretty big twists in the story quite early on but not with enough certainty that it kept me from wanting to read on and see how it all played out. There were many layers to the story and I enjoyed watching them all unfold. This is a tough one to say too much about without giving it all away, but I for one certainly enjoyed every minute. If you enjoy Christian romantic suspense, this is definitely one to check out!
