Product Details

(from Amazon)

Working for the FBI certainly isn’t a “normal” job, but Special Agent Julie Ann Davidson has never encountered a case as personal as this one. Although not officially assigned to the case, Ann and her partner, Patrick Duncan, take up the cause of finding Rachel, Jason, and Emily Collins. As if that task wasn’t enough, Ann and Patrick also have a baffling case of internet thievery to investigate.

Who is Christopher Collins and what about his past is endangering his family? Where are Rachel and the kids being held? Where is God in the midst of chaos? Will Ann and Patrick arrive in time or will they find only pain?

Julie C Gilbert
These days, Julie C. Gilbert is once again answering to “Miss Gilbert” as a high school chemistry teacher. She also writes YA, science fiction, fantasy, and Christian stories about characters she comes to admire but certainly not envy. How the characters deal with all the triumphs and troubles that come their way is always a fun adventure for her. When not writing or reading or lesson planning, she enjoys sunshine, coffee, long walks, tea, and video games, not necessarily in that order.

The book wasn't very realistic to me.   I don't understand why someone like Chris would let dome one run his life.
I believe the book could have used some editing.  The titles and subtitles were right on top of the beginning of the chapters.
The book to me was just another of the same suspense books that I've read so many of.  This book wasn't any different. It didn't stand out. It took me reading the entire book before any of it started to make any sense to me. I believe the characters needed more development.  Maybe cut down on a few of the things that were taking place and develop the others more. One thing I really didn't understand was that if Rachel and Ann were such good friends, why was Ann not recognized by Rachel right off the bat?
The story is basically well written. I just believe it needs more development and the addition of some reality.  The book may be fiction, but that little touch of reality always attracts the reader.
Sometimes we think people are one way and they turn out not to be.  They really aren't who we think they are.  This happens a lot in real life.    Secrets, sometimes are kept to protect loved ones and sometimes secrets are kept to protect the one who has the secret.  I believe the book was just a little too much push on religion and God.  This is just my own personal opinion.  Overall it's a fair read.  I feel it could be improved.

I was given a complimentary copy of THE COLLINS CASE from the author Julie Gilbert for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 3 STARS.
