The Confession, by Robert Whitlow, is an inspiring novel. Having read several of Whitlow’s other books, I held high expectations for this one and was certainly not disappointed. It shows how deception, even when no one knows but God, can endanger our lives as we know them.
Holt Douglas, the Assistant DA, dating a beautiful woman, even having the perfect dog, appears to have the ideal life. The secrets hidden in his past, however, begin to arise during his unofficial investigation into a cold case. Officer Trish Carmichael wants to help him and holds a big crush on the man, in spite of the attention she receives from another man at her church, until she learns of his secret. Holt must decide whether or not to come forward with his secret and confess, and Trish must learn how to let go of the bitterness in her heart and truly forgive.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was well-written. The characters were well-developed, seeming as if they could truly be real people. The story held my attention to the end, even though I guessed many of the events before then. I especially liked Holt’s dog and Bishop Pennington.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great Christian suspense novel.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
