Summary: Carol Mabry is a busy Richmond attorney. Bobby Kent is a busy country music star. During an unexpected trip home to the farm, Bobby discovers that someone has been keeping a very important secret from him. He and Carol have a daughter! Turns out, that’s not the only secret in Richmond. There’s a serial killer on the loose and it’s up to Carol and her department to solve the case. Will it Bobby and Carol be able to make a family for their daughter, or will “Richmond Red” dash those hopes forever?
Review: Seriously, Hallee Bridgeman has done it again! A Carol for Kent, the newest installment of the “Song of Suspense” series, blows you away. Once you think you have it all figured out, you find out you really don’t. I was wrong TWICE, and I’m usually pretty good at figuring out who-done-it before the end of the book! I love a book that keeps you engaged.
Again, Hallee does a great job blending suspense, romance, and Biblical principles. This is one of the few romance novels that I’d allow my children to read when they got older. I’ve even recommended these books to people who don’t like romance novels (like myself) because they’re not something that makes me uncomfortable while I read. It’s not going to be hidden away on a secret “mom only” bookshelf, that’s for sure. Hallee’s capturing of the Christian romantic experience isn’t sugar coated to be “too perfect” or “too prude”. Nor is her presentation of “God stuff” too preachy. It’s there, and it’s obvious, but it doesn’t take away from the story. Quite frankly, the story wouldn’t be the same without it and I’m very glad that she includes it!
Definitely a GREAT read. If you’re anything like me, it won’t take you long to read it because you’ll get sucked in and won’t want to put it down! Great job Hallee, can’t wait to read the next one!
