Threads of Suspicion (An Evie Blackwell Cold Case) by Dee Henderson

This is another great installment in the continuing story of Evie Blackwell, a police officer and member of an elite Cold Case team. In this story, the team is just taking their first set of cases and each team member gets a different case to research in the location where they are working. Evie and her partner David Marshall are working together. He has the case of a missing PI and she has the case of a missing college student but the cases have odd aspects that mirror each other and Evie’s case is oddly mixed up with David’s fiancĂ©, a popular music star. I love the detail of how they research the case and lay out the face and the possibilities to try to find clues to solve the case. This kind of research is right up my alley and I am fascinated by the stories of solving these cold cases.

Dee Henderson is one of my all time favorite authors and this Evie Blackwell series is a winner! I can’t wait for the next installment.

I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for a review. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes this genre.

Do Baby Bears Have Mommies? By Crystal Bowman and Teri McKinley

This is a sweet little picture book that has some rhyming verses in it that answer some questions children might ask. I like the theme of it and the story line, but I think the rhetoric needed to make a nice rhyme might be more on an adult’s interest level than a child’s. It is charming, nonetheless, and the illustrations are very colorful and fun. It basically discusses different aspects of different animals and some of their quirks. My granddaughter loves animals and any knowledge about them she can soak up so this book is right up her alley. I would say this is a nice addition to your child’s bookshelf.

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale in exchange for a review. I’m very pleased with the selections Tyndale has and this book is no exception.
