It has been a couple books since I have read a Dee Henderson book. She has a loyal following and because she is a consistent writer she is easy to recommend to any and all readers. She is the queen of the unofficially title genre, romantic suspense. Many years before anyone else was writing it, she was penning the O’Malley series that remains popular today.
Traces of Guilt not only adds to her already impressive list of titles, it also starts a new series for us to enjoy. The Evie Blackwell Cold Case series introduces us to Evie as she starts a working vacation in Carin County IL with two cold cases that have affected many of the families living there. As Evie dives into her investigation, she realises there maybe more at stake than just finding the killers, her own heart maybe in danger.
One thing that Dee does so very well is include characters from past series. It is like the chance to visit with old friends. But I still have no idea how she is able to keep that all straight. However she does, it makes for a fun read.
I always find myself regretting when I don’t have time to read Dee’s books. They are a wonderful way to pass the time. Her characters are interesting, often with a fascinating backstory. It just makes the story all the more richer for it.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading Dee Henderson’s books before Traces is a great place to start, but if you wish to remain in writing order, start with the Negotiator, book #1 of the O’Malley series.
