“What would you do if you were accused of a crime you didn’t commit?
Kate watched as her campus was torn apart by bombs and now is being accused of perpetrating the crime. As the evidence quickly stacks up against her, she begins to lose hope that the truth will come to light. Even though the handsome FBI Agent, Patrick, has taken up her cause, will they be able to prove her innocence? Will God, who she neglected for so long, listen to her prayers for help?
Patrick is an agent with a very special team of agents. He wants to help Kate prove she is innocent, but as each new piece of evidence is revealed, that goal seems harder. He wonders why he feels so compelled to help her and so sure she is innocent despite the evidence. Will he be willing to put his job on the line to help her? Can he trust in God to make sure the truth will come out in the end?”
I started “Kate’s Innocence” with excitement, after having heard that the idea for it was sparked from the “Sue Thomas FBEye” show, and also getting a recommendation from my friend about it. I was not disappointed! It’s started off with just a “normal day in the life of a college girl”, but quickly escalated into a riveting crime investigation.
Each of the characters was well developed, and not at all humdrum or clichéd. I’m pretty sure Logan was my favorite (though it’s possible if I was around her, I’d find her “habit” to be a little annoying J). I appreciated Patrick’s loyalty, Bryan’s peace-maker attitude, and Thomas’ desire for the truth to be uncovered, even though it did make him a bit unreasonable at times.
I had a few suspicions as to who the culprit might be, but didn’t actually figure it out until closer to the end (though it was before ‘the person’ was actually identified).
I appreciated the focus the author put on constantly having to rely on the Lord for wisdom and for the ultimate results, though it was a hard lesson for a particular character to learn. I’m also anxious to see how the author will continue on with Kate’s spiritual journey, as well as a couple other ‘mysteries’ that were hinted at, but not fully resolved.
I can recommend this without reservations to anyone, and can’t wait to read the next one in the series!

Thanks so much for the opportunity, Sarah!
