Robert Whitlow is a must-read author for both my husband and me. We appreciate the finely drawn characters and the story lines that are entertaining while making you think. Trial And Error has both of those elements. I liked the day-to-day lives that were depicted in the book making the characters very relatable. It did slow the story down somewhat, but I think the way Whitlow writes reflects real life. The subject matter focuses on missing/lost children — some in danger and others that don’t want to be found. The research that goes into finding a missing person was fascinating. The faith thread is especially strong, and the depiction of the impact of prayer is powerful. Some characters are Christians, others are not, but are open to honest dialog and sincere testimonies. I found that very meaningful. As I said, this is a slow-moving story, but I never lost interest. The audiobook is well done and was a great accompaniment on my morning walks.

All in all, I enjoyed Trial And Error.

Title: Trial and Error
Author: Robert Whitlow
Pages: 432
Year: 2021
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars.
The opening scene sets the stage for a story filled with suspense that will touch the heart of readers. Two expectant fathers are awaiting the arrival of their babies, sitting together talking. They share just a tidbit to the other before being interrupted by a nurse. When the audience turns the page, it fast forwards the story to one of the fathers named Buddy and his endless search for his daughter. Buddy is a lawyer whose own personal experience leads him to take cases that have in one way or another a focus on parents and their children. Enter Gracie who coaches the girls fast pitch softball league and is clerk for the courts. Add to the mix a new detective, Mayleah from Oklahoma who focuses on finding missing and exploited children.
As the story progresses, we see how these three characters’ lives are going to be entangled in finding a recent disappearance of a young teenager named Reagan. Reagan is the daughter of the other expectant father who was in the room with Buddy many years ago.
Now as I was reading, I kept trying to figure out where the author was taking me. I was entertaining possible avenues the plot line was going to take, but the ending took me by surprise. In the novel, is a very heart touching story of two fathers searching for their daughters for two different reasons. However, by the end of the book the two fathers’ lives and those of their daughters intersect in an amazing way.
I loved how Gracie’s character was developed as a woman of faith, how she lived that out and was a model for other young women. The main character, Buddy, was interesting and how God used what he went through to touch Buddy’s heart and change his life. The story takes place in Georgia and having never been there I enjoyed the many descriptions of the area and time where the author sets the stage.
Whether you have read other Robert Whitlow books or not, this one is definitely one to share with family and friends. Grab a copy, read and enjoy!

Readers first meet 18-year-old Buddy Smith sitting in a hospital waiting room in Milton county, GA. Buddy anxiously awaits his daughter Elise’s arrival, connecting with her was important. Little did he know after that day she would go missing.

Buddy tried to track down the whereabouts of his daughter. All the leads had dried up years ago. He went away to law school, came back home to keep a close eye on his mom. Sadly, Buddy was losing hope of ever finding Elise until one day he makes a discovery that changes everything.

Gracie grew up with Buddy and became the first female clerk of court in a small southern town where the community valued familiarity over the unknown (it can be a good thing and a bad thing) Both, Buddy and Gracie have a passion for helping parents find their missing children. Buddy had a soft spot for clients whose children were kidnapped by a parent he says, “To wrongfully deprive a deserving parent of the right to be with his/or her child was inexcusable.”

This story strolls along as the author shows readers around a small town in GA introducing them to its surrounds and people. This is not a fast-paced legal thriller but one that gets readers emotionally vested and connected to the characters and their situations. I enjoyed sitting alongside Gracie and friends on the porch and indulging in hot peach cobbler (it sounded yummy!). This is a cozy drama with an interesting cast of characters I enjoyed hanging out with.

A sweet romance is intertwined in the story as Buddy and Grace track down clues to find missing kids. I enjoyed seeing the transformation of Buddy as he lets go of his past and finds a deep faith, he never knew was possible. I like how the author shows this personal aspect of faith without it being preachy or making the reader feel alienated.

The author focuses themes of family, justice, not giving up on fighting the good fight, and how faith plays into it all. The natural faith element is seen through Gracie and Buddy’s mother’s eyes. They support one another in prayer. I liked how the author gives a peek into Gracie’s prayer life and what she does with her prayer journal. Readers see Gracie marking down prayer requests and then write the date a prayer is answered (even if it’s years later). It was fun to see Gracie coaching a girl’s baseball league. This is an inspiring, tender story that will warm your heart.

Trial and Error, by Robert Whitlow, is a contemporary Christian mystery thriller that kept me reading to see what was going to happen. Buddy Smith is a lawyer who'd infant daughter and her mother went missing just after the child's birth. He has never given up on trying to find them. Now a young boy and a teen girl in towns goes missing and he takes on the cases to try to find them. Working with the county clerk of courts, Grace, and a new detective in town, Mayleah, they diligently work to find the missing girl.
This is such a good story. It is well written with strong characters. There are sensitive topics in this story, such as teen pregnancy, unwed mothers, child abduction and human trafficking. The author does a great job of writing the story without going into deep details. There are many good things that stand out to me in this story. I enjoyed the strong faith and the importance of prayer in the lives of Grace and Buddy's mother. Another is the secret Buddy's father kept from Buddy and his mother and how it affected their lives.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion. ( )
