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?

I was first introduced to Julie C. Gilbert's writing with a novelette, The Quinn Case, in an anthology called Where the Light May Lead. Reading the novelette was much like watching an evening crime drama, which I do on occasion, and I was in that kind of mood when I started the Heartfelt Cases series. I wasn't far into my reading before I was like, "Wait, wh-what?" The Collins Case had me hooked early, and it moved at a good pace without skimpy or rushed storytelling. The Heartfelt Cases aren't sappy heart tales, but they're heart and mind battles where life and death are the stakes. Even as a ChristFic lover, I found the Gospel language to be heavy at points, which can sometimes feel like a shift from story-mode into Gospel-tract- or Christian-devotional-mode to me, and there was a time or two when scenes felt disjointed and the flow was hard to follow. But the books are quite a mix of heart and satisfying suspense, and I'd definitely recommend this series to other Christian suspense fans.
