The Davidson Case by Julie C. Gilbert

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

The Davidson Case by Julie C. Gilbert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

(Click the title to find the book description/blurb.)

Joy Davidson is just trying to do her job at an animal clinic when she uncovers evidence of a treacherous conspiracy. Her discovery makes her a threat to the operation and a target for the conspirators. The fact that Special Agent Ann Duncan is Joy’s sister may keep Joy safe or put her in more danger in The Davidson Case by author Julie C. Gilbert.

I jumped into this third book of the Heartfelt Cases series after having liked the first two books. I found this one somewhat more difficult to follow than its predecessors, as a few parts seemed disjointed, and I had some trouble keeping track of all the different criminals’ names, associations, and motives.

Still, I enjoyed Ann and Patrick’s “married people” banter and how they encourage each other in their faith and work as a team in precarious situations. Once the action really picked up, it kept me engrossed and guessing—albeit there wasn’t really a whole lot of time for guessing, since sharp turns I didn’t see coming, came. And they came in thrilling fashion.

While the first three books in the series have each given me a rather short and sweet “primetime crime drama” fix, the next book may be more of a movie than a television episode.

Bring it.


Here’s my review of the first book in the Heartfelt Cases series, The Collins Case.
