    I'm about a third of the way through "The Confession" and have decided not to give it any more time. It's boring...there's nothing happening. The most intriguing part has been the prologue...it was a good hook to pull me in but after that there hasn't been anything to hold me. There's a lot of description of what's occurring but the author isn't giving me insight into what the characters are thinking, at least not beyond the obvious. It also comes across as a bit juvenile. I've read some YA books where the teens had more interesting thoughts than the adults in this book! Too much description on people's height, for one thing. The last thing I read was the sheriff's deputy, Trish(with her own date), after running into the ADA in a restaurant, observed his own date and "was surprised how short she was". We, of course, were already told how model-like tall Trish is. Too much comparing of bodies...not necessary and very juvenile. I try to finish books but life is too short for boring books.The cover says "Bestselling Author" so I may give an earlier book of Whitlow's a try.

    I have enjoyed any book I've read by Robert Whitlow so far. This one deals with the effects secrets and deceptions from the past can have on your life years later. Knowing you killed someone in an accident and then didn't come completely clean about it would be tough to deal with. There is a lot of spiritual growth and change in one of the characters, and the ending was not totally predictable, which I appreciated. Sometimes I figure out who did something halfway through the book, and it wasn't until right before it was revealed that I figured out part of this one. The mystery and the spiritual lesson in this book are both good I have enjoyed any book I've read by Robert Whitlow so far.

    Robert Whitlow returns to his roots with his latest character-driven legal thriller The Confession. After giving us a couple of novels that stretched both him and his readers, it's nice to see Whitlow get back to a well-told legal story that is easily on par with some of his best works. Years ago, Holt Douglas made a mistake -- and his best friend died. Holt lied at the time and has been carrying around that guilt since that time. But you wouldn't know it from looking at Holt's life today. He's an assistant DA in a rural Georgia county whose star is on the rise, he's dating a successful and beautiful business-woman and he's got a nice home complete with a friendly, lovable dog. But when a cold case is left on his desk, Holt begins to put his personal and professional future on the line as he begins to do a bit of digging into a mysterious death in the town's history. To help him dig into the past, Holt asks Deputy Trish Carmichael to delve a bit into the details of the cold case. Like Holt, Trish is dealing with some issues from her past that are clouding her present. And she's also got a bit of a crush on Holt, which could be holding her back from a potential new boyfriend in her life, Keith. Whitlow weaves the stories of Holt and Trish together in a believable way, allowing both of them to have their strengths and weaknesses. Holt can be a bit short sighted -- having a quick bite with Trish to discuss the case away from their offices sets the small-town gossip-mill to spinning and creates complications for the two of them. Whitlow played with this reader's expectations, zigging when I expected him to zag and not allowing the story or the characters to become predictable. And while the novel doesn't necessarily end on a cliffhanger, I having a feeling that Whitlow plans to visit these characters again in the near future. As with all of Whitlow's work, the characters ring true and feel authentic. Holt's journey is a believable one and it's nice to see a Christian author who allows his characters to be nuanced and have shadings to them both before and after they're saved. It's also nice to see that those who start the novel in the fold (as it were) have flaws and foible as well and that becoming a Christian doesn't miraculously cure all the ails facing these characters. Trish faces problems of bitterness and unforgiveness related to the death of her father and her mother being crippled after a wreck with a drunk driver. And her struggle between the man who is interested in her and her crush on Holt is nicely played since Whitlow makes Keith (her suitor) out to be a nice man and he's not put in there as an obstacle to she and Holt getting together.Whitlow is one an author who has long been on my "must read" list and any new offering is immediately put on the to-be-read list. For the most part, his books don't stay there long. The Confession is among his best.In the interest of full disclosure, I received a digital ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    This was my first Robert Whitlow book. It was very well written and kept me thinking what was the next step in the story. One I couldn't figure out. The story was believable with enough reality in it to keep the reader hooked. I appreciated the ending. James Scott Bell has a similar style and I've enjoyed his stories too.

    This was an exceptional read - full of face paced, changing dialogue and intrigue. In the beginning, there are almost two focal personalities - one the stronger Christian, in some ways, the other a searcher of sorts. But, their roles shift and change, and one is shown to be a weaker vessel - which I'm not so certain that I liked. And, the wrap-up seems to abrupt - no epilogue to tie it all together; and, maybe that opens the door for another volume with similar / same characters.

    A Good ReadI liked the twists in the plot and the underlying truth the novel presented. However, the excessive attention given to mundane details and non essential conversations made it a longer read than necessary. It did establish a small town feeling, but it was a bit much. It was still a great read.

    Another winner from Robert Whitlow. Partly about doing the right thing from the wrong motives, the main characters again go through the whole range of emotions before discovering that grace and mercy are more important than justice.

    After he read it, my husband suggested that I might like this book. I did. It had an easy-going pace, but still had the drama, mystery, humor, and adventure.The ending was a surprise to me, not who did it, but the characters' reactions to it, and what happened from there.I liked the interwoven themes of guilt, confession, and forgiveness throughout the book. I also liked the Pennington character, and the conversations that he had with Holt around basketball. (I don't like basketball, but these conversations were interesting, nonetheless.) I'm not sure what to think of Trish and her boyfriend's relationship at the end. I'm not sure that would really work out. It feels more like she's reacting against someone else than appreciating the relationship for what it is. On the other hand, having characters back off from relationships and affections so quickly like that doesn't often happen in this genre.

    Title: The ConfessionAuthor: Robert WhitlowPages: 416Year: 2014Publisher: Thomas NelsonAmazon: http://www.amazon.com/Confession-Robe...Upon opening the book I read this quote, “Confession is a bridge everyone must cross. This book is dedicated to the guides of grace who help us in the journey.” How profound! When I read it, I thought how truthful it is, and it piqued my interest. The thrust of the story brings home to our hearts the need to both receive and to give forgiveness to others. The author shows through the story’s characters how difficult it is to confess our sins when we would rather hide them and the challenges we face when extending forgiveness.Holton is a district attorney who carries a secret from his youth. His life’s work has been to honor his friend who died; yet, it is more than that. When Holt was 18, he was driving and lost control of the car and his friend nicknamed Calico was killed. What turns out to be difficult for Holt was laying the blame for the accident on his friend when in fact he was the driver. Trish works for the sheriff’s office. While her duties are manifold, she is trying to come to grips with forgiving the drunk driver who killed her father and put her mother in a wheelchair. The character that I found captivating was Bishop Pennington, who is an example of a man available for prayer or just listening to those who need to share their burdens, keeping confidences.When Holt is accidently given a cold case file of an apparent suicide of a prominent citizen, he begins to dig for the information not in the file. Though he is told to immediately quit investigating, he is drawn into the case which unfolds into more than what he thought was an apparent cover up. On top of all this, Holt begins his journey toward God while others learn the freedom forgiveness brings to them. I highly recommend the novel. It speaks spiritual truth along with a suspense-building climax and an ending that will steal your breath away.As I was reading, I kept seeing how various characters struggled with letting go of anger or facing their sins due to the shame that overwhelmed them. But what hope and joy the characters reflected once the truth was all out and there was no more hiding or fear of the truth being known by others. The tale reflects, I believe, how we all at times fear confession, how we do feel shame, but if we confess, how free we become! A very enlightening and captivating story awaits those who open the book and take the journey. I did and it was well worth reading!My rating is 5 stars.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free in the hope that I would mention it on my blog.

    It's always easier for a prosecuting attorney if he has a confession ... or is it? The Confession (link to Kindle edition on Amazon), by Robert Whitlow, is a lawyer story — actually an assistant DA. As a teen, Holt Douglas was drunk but not as much as his friend. He refuses to let his friend drive and takes the keys himself. In the subsequent wreck (didn't see that coming, right?), the friend dies but Holt lives. He makes a decision to tell the police that the friend was driving and lives with the secrecy and guilt of that decision for years afterwards.As an assistant DA, Holt begins to suspect that the death of a prominent and powerful businessman, Meredith, was not suicide as was reported. Then, with the help of Trish, a detective assigned to locating and bringing to justice men who have defaulted on alimony or family support payments, begins to uncover evidence that Greg, a supporter of the DA and huge contributor to Trish's church, was involved in the death of Meredith and decided that the DA and the Sheriff and some deputies were involved in a massive cover-up. The story involves some conflicted attraction between Holt and Trish that causes trouble between Holt and Angelina, Holt's girlfriend. Whitlow does a good job of weaving in Holt's guilt over hiding the truth about his role in the wreck that killed his friend. Trish's father was killed by a drunk driver, and Whitlow does a good job of weaving in the tension of Trish's anger, especially when Holt tells Trish the truth about his own wreck. The Bishop becomes a key part of the story as Holt moves toward faith. Then, there is a twist or two in the story.While not great book, The Confession was an engaging read. I rate it 4/5 stars.Not a part of my review or rating. I read the Kindle edition. Amazon says the book contains real page numbers — there are not page numbers in the review edition (this seems to be standard with review copies, though the publisher says these copies should be precisely like the retail edition).(DISCLAIMER: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher as a part of their blogger review programme, BookLook Bloggers.

    Legal Drama, Mystery, and RomanceHolt Douglas made a tragic mistake as a teenager and is still struggling to make amends. He was driving his friend's car when the car went off the road and his friend, Calico, was killed. Just before the accident, Calico told Holt about his dream to be a government attorney. Now Holt is an Assistant DA, but he doesn't find it fulfilling.Trish Carmichael is a police officer whose major responsibility is collecting from deadbeat dads. She also carries a burden. Her father was killed and her mother paralyzed when a drunk teenager ran into their car. Trish finds forgiveness very difficult in spite of her sincere religious beliefs. When the folder for the apparent suicide of one of the town's prominent citizens crosses Holt's desk by mistake, he and Trish think a murder is being covered up and decide to investigate; a decision that has unforeseen consequences. Although the plot is engaging, I found the pace slow. The author tries to tie together the lives of Trish and Holt with the revelations of their investigation. The result is time devoted to each character's problems which detracts from the forward movement of the investigation, the activity that holds the story together. If you're looking for a fast paced legal thriller, this may disappoint. If you're looking for a character study in which guilt and forgiveness play major roles, you'll find the book interesting. Holt and Trish struggle with their internal demons. The way they resolve the issues is a major thread in the story. I enjoyed the book, but I was hoping for a legal thriller with a faster pace. I think the novel is a little long. It could have been improved by shortening the main characters' internal searching and concentrating on the investigation of the suicide. However, it was worth reading.I reviewed this book for the Thomas Nelson BookLook Blogger Program.

    Robert Whitlow is back! No he didn’t really go anywhere, but this book club favorite left us puzzled and dissatisfied last year with The Living Room. But his newest novel, The Confession, combines his trademark characters, excellent plotting and insightful faith message that make for a classic Whitlow novel. By The Book is discussing this one next week. Have you read it? Please let us know your thoughts.Holt Douglas is a DA with a past. From the beginning, the reader is let in on the secret which has shaped his life’s goals. The accident changed the course of his life and has caused him not to divert from it. Deputy Trish Carmichael has also been impacted by a tragedy. Her black and white sense of right and wrong were reinforced by it. The two come together to solve a cold case that is not as it seems. Past and present are on a collision course that will again change the paths of many of the characters.First off, I have to say that I liked the mystery that was the main plot line. Things are never as they seem and the main characters’ perceptions and experiences influence the direction of their investigation. Whitlow examines how what we see may not really be what’s real. But it was the course the characters take in gaining real insight that I enjoyed the most. Holt is a case in contradiction and irony, dedicated to bring justice, but keeping his own sins secrets. Trish believes in the justice of God, but has a hard time extending grace. The Confession has lots of characters seeking restitution, but not true repentance. The surprise ending is filled with the message of hope in the love and mercy of God.I am so glad that Whitlow has returned to his roots. This is a book I can recommend.Recommended.Audience: Older teens to adults.

    I enjoyed this story about Holt's journey as he uncovers the truth about the cold case and about himself. This focused more on his daily work and life and weaved details about the cold case throughout until Holt really started to look into it. There was also a lot of time spent on Trish Carmichael, a deputy who tracks down deadbeat dads who aren't paying child support. Her life was a little more interesting, with her determination to see justice for these families and to help Holt with his investigation. She's still grieving the death of her father and her mother's injury by a drunk driver and torn between the guy she's dating and her interest in Holt. The characters were realistic and I liked both of them a lot, but I felt frustrated with some choices Trish made later in the book. Trish's mother was also well done and it was interesting to see how she dealt with being a paraplegic after being very active. I appreciated seeing someone with a disability figure so prominently in the story, especially someone with such a great attitude. I really enjoyed seeing the process of Holt coming to faith and the roles Trish and an Apostolic bishop played in that. The gospel message was laid out clearly, but also unique to Holt's experience as a prosecutor. I also liked that even though Trish was a Christian, she's shown as flawed and has her own issues to deal with. Forgiveness, justice and mercy were important themes in the story and I found it to be more of a relaxing read than a suspenseful one. I would recommend it for fans of legal fiction!I received this book free from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.

    Assistant DA, Holt Douglas, has spent his adult life trying to make up for his past. One tragic mistake from his teen years has haunted him. Burying it deep in his mind, he’s hidden it from the world. Believing that standing up for law & justice will earn him forgiveness, he’s poured himself into his work. Trish Carmichael is a Deputy Sheriff who also believes in law & justice. A devout Christian, she does her best to live by both God’s laws & man’s. Her main duty is to collect child support from deadbeat dads. But, when she & Holt discover a possible murder cover-up, they have to put their main duties aside. One of the town’s most prominent citizen’s death had been ruled a suicide. But both Holt & Trish believe it was a murder. High-powered individuals wish to keep the details a secret. In their search for justice, what will happen when they start stepping on important toes? ‘The Confession’ isn’t simply about a confession, but rather many confessions that need to be made. Holt is a good man at heart, but he needs some serious Spiritual healing. Trish is a dedicated officer, but struggles with forgiveness. Throughout the town, there’s a lot of hurt & a lot of skeletons in closets. The plot is a mix of mystery, suspense, romance, & drama. I know that the struggles of the characters, not just the two main, will hit home with many people. I loved that no matter what happened Trish remained steadfast in her faith. There are a lot of strong Biblical messages mixed into the action. ‘The Confession’ isn’t a light read, but it’s worth it. I definitely rate it 5 stars. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.

    The Confession is written by Robert Whitlow, Narrated by Heath McClure and Published by Thomas Nelson. McClure keeps your attention throughout this audiobook. The voices of the characters are not always uniquely separate from the narrative itself, but McClure does provide some real emotional moments in his presentation.The story of Holt Douglas is a legal mystery. As a prosecutor Holt is always looking for a confession. When he stumbles upon an old murder case file he wasn't supposed to see Holt questions why so little investigation was done. Was there a cover-up of a murder?As Holt begins to look into the case he is shut down from every angle. Holts questions may open up old wounds that important people want left closed. Throughout "The Confession" Holt's own hidden past is brought to light. His secret may damage him as much as the cold case murder may damage others. Will digging up others past, when his own is not resolved, overwhelm Holt's conscience?As a Christian book prayer, forgiveness, grace, and mercy are all themes. Overall this book is good. Only twice in this book was I on the edge of my seat listening. The story brings God into the everyday life of real characters and is a morality play more than a thriller. This is an easy listening audiobook.I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Having read and enjoyed other Robert Whitlow books, I grabbed the chance to read and review "The Confession" for booklookbloggers.comThe story focuses on Holt Douglas, an assistant D.A in Ashley County, Georgia who has a secret which he has hidden since he was a teenager. As he prosecutes people for all the things they do wrong, he has forgotten that he is actually in the same boat as them, having made a horrendous mistake which should have him in jail as well. It really reminded me of the need to take the plank out of my own eye before taking the speck out of my neighbour's. Another main character, Deputy Trish Carmichael, is wrapped in unforgiveness and bitterness over the accident that took her father and paralysed her mother. Through how the two story lines connect, Robert Whitlow not only shows how secrets can keep us imprisoned in the past, but also how bitterness does the same as well."The Confession" is not just a wonderful keep-you-guessing legal thriller, it also has levels of love interest which keeps you guessing as well! I would recommend it highly to anyone who wants a fulfilling read for the soul, as well as light entertainment for the mind.

    Robert Whitlow is one of those better than chocolate mystery/suspense writers so when I saw this book, The Confession, I was intrigued.It seems that Assistant D.A. Holt Douglas has something in his past that is in his "repressed" memories. . . a memory that he has unconsciously blocked since he was a teenager. This repressed memory is triggered by a cold case.This is quite an interesting read. Can a person truly repress something that is so horrific to him that he simply blocks it out of his whole life?I like Trish Carmichael the Deputy Shriff. Trish and Holt come together with this cold case that seems to be murder. Can they prove it? I like Trish . . . she is a steadfast christian with an unshakeable faith. A faith that Holt needs to see and experience. Holt is amazed and somewhat unfounded with Trish...Trish is good for Holt.This story is more that a confession it's about confessions...a whole lot closet skeletons that need cleaning out.The romance, the mystery, the suspense and one great read!

    It is always better to tell the truth. This book shows how a lie about an accident affected the main characters’ life for years. The story itself is slow to get into but the depth of the characters helps make it interesting. I thought the conversations and details were excellently written. I did however, have to put the book down a few times and come back to it to make it through. It was just a bit slow for my taste but still a good story. I would recommend the book to anyone looking for an in-depth look at how guilt from the past can make your life better or worse. I would also recommend the book to any fans of this author as this book was better then his last!I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    The Confession by Robert Whitlow is an excellent book. It shows us we can come to conclusions about different things and be totally wrong. We can hold hate or anger in our hearts about something that happened or hold onto anger because you have been wronged, but the only way to live is to have true forgiveness and continue with your life. In this book Holt is hiding something, but tries to put it out of his mind. He tries to right the wrong that others are doing, while he keeps his past secret.The Confession is full of mystery, intrigue, suspense and even romance. In The Confession there are so many twists and turns that you will be amazed at the outcome of the story. I really love a good suspenseful book and The Confession did not disappoint. I highly recommend this book. It will be a favorite of yours. Very, very good book.
