About the Book
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.
In My Opinion
Like many engaging romantic suspense novels, Concrete Evidence by DiAnn Mills starts with a dead body. And everything gets more twisted and complicated from there.
Avery isn’t sure what’s going on with her grandfather, but whatever it is, it can’t be good. When he directs her to FBI special agent Marc Wilkins, the two storylines (Avery’s and Marc’s) start to connect.
Mills offers plenty of misdirection and possible suspects to keep readers guessing who is behind the threats, attempts on people’s lives, and coverups. In fact, there was almost too much of that. So much so, the ending didn’t give me the closure I had hoped for.
But as a romance fan, I was happy to see Avery and Marc get their happy ending.
