Book Review~Strands of Deception

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Strands of Deception
B&H Books (March 1, 2013)
Robin Caroll


Born and raised in Louisiana, Robin Caroll is a southerner through and through. Her passion has always been to tell stories to entertain others. Robin’s mother, bless her heart, is a genealogist who instilled in Robin the deep love of family and pride of heritage—two aspects Robin weaves into each of her books.

When she isn’t writing, Robin spends time with her husband of twenty-plus years, her 3 beautiful daughters, 2 precious grandsons, and their character-filled pets at home—in the South, where else?


When Gina Ford, the daughter of a prominent Tennessee politician, goes missing from the University of Memphis a week after another girl was murdered on the same campus, police call in the FBI. Nick Hagar, married to his job as Special Agent in Charge, is assigned to the case, and when Gina’s body is found, her father demands justice.

Maddie Baxter is the forensic expert running DNA tests from the crime scene. When they come back without a match, Nick asks her to do a familial DNA run that yields a shocking result: the prime suspect is Adam Alexander, the very same guy who broke Maddie’s heart when she was in college.

But do scientific advancements tell the whole story? Strand of Deception offers romance, suspense, and a lively debate about the impact of DNA testing, for better or worse, on the United States justice system.

My Thoughts: I was concerned when I found out that Strands of Deception is the third of a series, because I hadn't read the first two books.  It became clear early on in the book that this wouldn't be a problem, and it could be read alone.  I don't usually like books with a scientific topic, but was glued to this book from start to finish!  The topic of DNA really was fascinating, and the twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat!  I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of spiritual/Christian theme in the story, and there was just the right amount of romance.  I could see fans of many different genres enjoying Strands of Deception. Now I'd like to go back and read the other two in the series!
