This is a fast-paced suspenseful story about a woman's quest for justice! Kit McGovern is an FBI agent taking a much-needed vacation on the island of Chincoteague near Virginia when she comes upon a dead Hispanic child washed up on shore. Something compels her to assert jurisdiction and fight to keep the case. She traces tomato seeds and acorns using plant DNA to a farm, but why was the boy there and how did he get to the ocean? Is this case even bigger than just one boy? Still mourning a divorce she didn't want, will she give the D. C. cop helping her a chance or is love a risk too big to take?
I enjoyed learning about the procedures and investigation that goes into building a case. Something was always happening in the story! I liked the characters, the suspense, and the hint of romance. I especially liked how Kit struggled with forgiveness and trust and David started to become interested in God and spiritual things. I really want to visit this island now, especially once I realized the Misty of Chincoteague books were set there. The author really made it come alive and it sounds gorgeous. Check out this suspenseful story!
I received this book free from Abingdon Press in exchange for an honest review.
