PUBLISHER: Tyndale House
RELEASE DATE: October 4, 2022
On the family’s Brazos River Ranch in Texas, Avery Elliott helps run her grandfather’s commercial construction business. Raised by Senator Elliott, Avery has never doubted her grandfather is the man of integrity and faith she’s always believed him to be . . . until the day she finds him standing with a gun over the body of a dead man. To make matters worse, Avery’s just discovered a billing discrepancy for materials supposedly purchased for construction of the Lago de Cobre Dam.
Desperate for answers, Avery contacts FBI Special Agent Marc Wilkins for help. As Marc works to identify the dead man Avery saw, threats toward Avery create a fresh sense of urgency to pinpoint why someone wants to silence her. With a hurricane approaching the Texas coast and the structural integrity of the Lago de Cobre Dam called into question, time is running out to get to the bottom of a sinister plot that could be endangering the lives of not only Avery and her loved ones but the entire community.
Longer review coming later…
Bottom Line: DiAnn Mills continues to prove why she’s one of my go-to suspense authors, and Concrete Evidence is no exception. Right from the first chapter, I was intrigued by the complex mystery and by the character dynamics that Mills weaves throughout the story. A steady pace, a layered cast, and a unique premise ensure that readers will keep turning the pages, needing to know what happens next – just like I did. There are several different elements in play throughout Concrete Evidence (including faith, family, and romance), and each one serves a purpose to draw readers into the heart of this novel and keep them guessing until the high-intensity ending. A delightful way to spend a weekend!
(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. In the interest of full disclosure, the company I own – JustRead Tours – was paid to organize a social media promotional tour for this book that ended before my review was written. This in no way affected my review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)
My Rating: 4 stars / loved it!
