Genre: Christian Suspense/Legal Thriller

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.

My Thoughts

Trial and Error by Robert Whitlow is a Christian Legal thriller. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I enjoyed it very much. The author did a great job in laying out the foundation and characters so that you feel like you have gotten to know them throughout the book. Buddy was a teen dad. He becomes a father at a young age. However shortly after his daughter's birth the child's mother takes off with her and disappears. This has affected Buddy greatly. He builds a career on tracking down missing children. He becomes highly recommended by a long time friend who is now working as a clerk at the courthouse. He also is well known in the small Georgia town. While Buddy is not only searching for his client's children - he is also searching for his daughter. He takes on a case of a runaway teen girl. The runaway girl shares a birthday with his missing daughter. You will see a journey of Buddy trying to help the girl's parents try and find her before she is lost forever. They feel like she is possibly trafficked. The author writes clues so that you can help solve the mystery also.
I received a copy of this book through the JustRead book tour program. All thoughts are my own.
