Trial and Error JustRead Blog + Review Tour

My Review

Trial and Error, by Robert Whitlow, is a contemporary Christian mystery thriller that kept me reading to see what was going to happen. Buddy Smith is a lawyer who’d infant daughter and her mother went missing just after the child’s birth. He has never given up on trying to find them. Now a young boy and a teen girl in town goes missing and he takes on the cases to try to find them. Working with the county clerk of courts, Grace, and a new detective in town, Mayleah, they diligently work to find the missing girl.

This is such a good story. It is well written with strong characters. There are sensitive topics in this story, such as teen pregnancy, unwed mothers, child abduction and human trafficking. The author does a great job of writing the story without going into deep details. There are many good things that stand out to me in this story. I enjoyed the strong faith and the importance of prayer in the lives of Grace and Buddy’s mother. Another is the secret Buddy’s father kept from Buddy and his mother and how it affected their lives.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

A small-town lawyer has been searching for his daughter for eighteen years. Now another young woman is missing, and he’s determined to find them both—no matter the cost.

Buddy Smith built his law practice around tracking down missing children. After all, he knows the agony of being separated from a child. Not long after his daughter’s birth, her mother ran away and Buddy never saw either one again.

Gracie Blaylock has known Buddy her entire life, and now that she is clerk of court for the county, their paths cross frequently. When Gracie hears that a teenager in town, Reagan, has gone missing, she knows Buddy is the one for the case.

Reagan’s parents are desperate for answers. Together with Gracie and Mayleah—the new detective in town—Buddy chases all leads, hoping to reach Reagan before it’s too late. And as he pursues one teen girl, he uncovers clues that could bring him closer to the girl he thought he lost forever: his own daughter.

Master legal writer Robert Whitlow will keep you guessing in this gripping legal drama while reminding you of the power of God’s restoration.
