As the evidence quickly stacks up against her, she begins to lose hope that the truth will come to light. Even though the handsome FBI Agent, Patrick, has taken up her cause, will they be able to prove her ...more
I had forgotten how much I love this book! It was so enjoyable to read (in paperback this time!), and I especially loved pinpointing the clues that lead up to the reveal since I knew the solution this time. Brilliantly done! Now I want to re-read the next book. :D
This book literally started off with a bang. I galloped through the pages, enjoying every moment and racking my brains along with the characters about just whodunnit. I kept thinking I had everything figured o ...more
The characters were all great; Kate was very realistic. Some would say she's too cynical and snarky, but it really fit her character and struggles. Patrick was very sweet, and his story arc was pretty good, but lacking at times, I found. I loved all of the FBI team! They were each so unique and great, and not at all cliche! There's Thomas, the cynical, cranky, sarcastic leader; Patrick, appropriately nicknamed "Saint Patty"; Brian, the peacemaker ...more
Well, that was epic. xD I'm totally shipping Kate and Patrick, btw. Their ship name shall be Katrick.
When I first heard about this book, I wasn't sure what to think. Then I started reading it, just a little bit before bed. Over two hours later, I finished the book. Now I want the next book in the series. :D
I thought the characters were all well-rounded. I would have liked maybe a little more backstory about Kate, but am hoping that will come forward in the next books.
The Christianity, wit, and sarcasm of each character was well done. I loved how Scott ke ...more
What I Liked: From the first, I wasn't quite sure how much I was going to like the main character, Kate. But as the story moved forward, I found myself really liking her and was feeling for her through all of the circumstances that she went through. By the end of the book, I wanted more of Kate...and Patrick, Brian, Logan, Kim, and even Thomas ...more
There were a few continuity issues, and a few pieces of the puzzle I felt weren't fully explained, or weren't justified well enough. It seemed to me several times that things were being pinned on Kate just because she was convenient, not because there was reasonably convincing evidence. Had other people been scrutinized as thoroughly as she was, it woul ...more
I had been meaning to read this book for awhile, and was planning on getting to it soon... when the author asked if I'd like to be a reviewer for the audiobook version from Audible.com. I had never reviewed an audiobook before, or used Audible, but it sounded like fun, so I thought why not jump on this? I'm very glad I did!
I don't read a lot of contemporary, mystery sort of stories, and agent-y stories ...more
In this book, we find a young woman, Kate Mayfield, in an increasingly tough situation. Her college is bombed. Explosions rock the campus on the night that her life turns on her. Once the FBI intervene, the detective work gets going, and the fingers point towards Kate.
Life after high school in a military family meant going through a tour-of-duty in Africa and the Middle East for Kate. Now s ...more
Kate was a very unique MC--one that I honestly wasn't sure that I would like: A military kid turned soldier herself then brilliant college student and primary ...more
This book was exciting, and you were guessing as to ‘who dunnit’. And you were of course rooting for Kate. :) At first, I wasn’t sure what I’d think of main character ...more
There were several interesting events that went on in this story. I can't say they shocked me to death nor I was surprised by the culprit in the end, but all in all I loved it. The FBI crew members were great. Logan is my favorite. Her little quirk of bouncing a ball added a neat effect.
Kate had much ...more
The only thing that bothered me about this book was that Kate had served a period in the Army, as that isn’t a fit calling for a girl claiming to be a Christian, even though she had been brought up in a military family. ...more
I'm looking forward to the next book!
But I’m getting ahead of myself (obviously, because I’m already talking about the ending!). What captured my attention even more than the mystery were the characters. The whol ...more
Each of the characters was well developed, and not at all humdrum or clichéd. I’m pretty sure Logan was my favorite (though it’s possible if I was around ...more
My Rating: 5 Stars.
Recommendation: Anyone over 13 because of slight violence.
My favorite character/s: Patrick Connor is a pretty stubborn guy; I like how he is determined to prove that Kate is innocent.
My Verse for Patrick is Psalm 21:13
Be thou exalted, Lord, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power. King James Version.
Kate is a hurting young woman and yet she is strong and I hope she keeps growing in her faith and walk with God as the series goes on.
My Verse fo ...more
I'm not one to enjoy "cop" shows or books much, and I'm not into mysteries too much either, but I just loved this story. When Kate is accused of bombing her own campus, she fights to clear her name - along with a team of F.B.I agents! But these are no ordinary agent ...more
I thought that the plot and characters were well thought out, but the mystery and writing style could have used help. I was never "on the end of my seat", surprised or just wanted to shout out loud with all the excitement. The way it was written made it very laid back and calm. Even though a person was murdered and there was bombs and fights, it was still calm and not gory.
Ever since my brother started convincing me to watch tv shows with him, I've loved all things secret agents and the likes. However, Sarah craftily took out the political agendas and questionable content and replaced them with pure, raw faith.
I whole heartedly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the rest of the series! Now if you'll excuse me, book two is waiting on my k ...more
This book sucked me in so hard from the very beginning, and it was so difficult to put down! The plot was one of those where you think you've put everything together and are just waiting for the characters to figure it out--and the ...more
Kate was a wonderful character. She has a troubled past after a tour in the military. We don’t know what happened but I like that we don’t know everything about her yet and get to see her grow through ...more
Kate’s Innocence is a fun, thoughtful, yet easy read that leaves you with an appreciation for the work of FBI agents. From what I could tell, all the facts about the FBI in this novel were fairly well researched—I don’t know much about the organization, but nothing went against what I do know.
Kate Mayfield suddenly finds herself a prime suspect when her college is bombed. Although she knows she didn’t do it, convincing the FBI—especially chief investigator Thomas—that she is who she says she is,
But here's my biggest problem. Sarah states that the show, Sue Thomas FBEye, had a great impression on her and this sto ...more
This is an interesting book with a good story. The author did say she took liberties in regards to the FBI storyline. It did remind me of Sue Thomas FBI, which I loved that show!
Kate is being accused of bombing her school. She is innocent, but whoever the bomber was did a great job of setting her up and making it look like she did it.
Most of the FBI team that is investigating, doesn't believe her. One of the guys stands up and fights to figure out the real bomber, but at what cost? ...more
