Sadly, this was only a minor example of the character and plot line disconnect.
Despite guessing almost immediately who the antagonist was and roughly how he had accomplished the murders, Herman spent very little time developing his character. This contributed to making the conclusion less satisfying. Lastly, 'The Right Call' is distinctly Christian. In fact I would define it as a Christian mystery, if such a thing exists.

The primary message I received from the characters was the wonder of God's love. This is not a bad thing, but I would have liked to have known before I started the book that one of the primary drives was to spread the word of God. All in all, I finished the book in hopes that it would suddenly improve or at least become more tolerable; it didn't. The mystery is sugary sweet and insubstantial. May 15, Laura rated it it was amazing. If you have read the previous two books, you are well-acquainted with the well-rounded, in-depth issues and characters of the Jessup family.
The Right Call drives you right into the center of murder by hire, random shootings, greed, addiction, deeply held secrets, and poor choices made by some of her characters, affecting whole town of Sophie Trace. Ethan learns of details behind the deaths of five people that could break open the case.

However, his decision to disclose this information will affect the lives of others and maybe even himself. His walk with the Lord gives him insights and wisdom of what to do in this deadly situation. The importance of a relationship with God, so that you can call on Him for wisdom and direction in making decisions in difficult situations, is one of the main insights gleaned from this book.
I highly recommend the whole series.
The Right Call (Sophie Trace Trilogy #3) by Kathy Herman
No monetary incentives were received to gain a positive review by myself. May 13, Tamara Tilley rated it really liked it Shelves: own , kathy-herman. Police Chief, Brill Jessup, has had her struggles both personally and professionally. But, with her marriage back on track, her college age daughter at home with her infant son, and the town of Sophie Trace regaining its small town charm, all seems well. Unfortunately, the peace is shattered by a string of shootings. But when his cousin is shot in a string of random killings, his world begins to spiral out of control.
When he finds out information about the shootings his life and the life of Vanessa and Carter are threatened. He struggles with doing what is right or what is safe. The Jessup family is not without their flaws, but familiar and inviting. The characters that work with Chief Jessup in the Sophie Trace precinct are rich as well. But, the characters that gather at the local coffee shop though quaint, become a bit bothersome after a while. I found myself breezing over the sections containing their dialogue because I felt it slowed the story down.
Kathy Herman is a talent storyteller that knows how to keep her readers interest. Mar 07, Cheryl rated it really liked it. Everyone has adjusted to the recent uproar in their lives, when Vanessa announced she was pregnant by one of her college professors. Before Ethan Langley went back to college; He and Vanessa were starting up a romantic relationship. There is something about the shooting that does Everyone has adjusted to the recent uproar in their lives, when Vanessa announced she was pregnant by one of her college professors.
The more Ethan digs the deeper things get. He uncovers something that could tear two families apart. Ethan must make a difficult choice. It can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novel. I like that Ethan had a stronger part in this book. He seemed like a nice guy in the last book from the brief appearance that he made.
Right Call: A Novel (Sophie Trace Trilogy) by Kathy Herman
This story had just the right amount of romance mixed with intrigue to make it The Right Call about reading it. I have grown to like the Jessup family.
I will be sorry to see them go. I will be keeping an eye on author, Kathy Herman and what she comes out with next.
Apr 15, Sunflower rated it it was amazing Shelves: book-reviews , audra-jennings-of-b-b-media. Center around the latest mystery that has risen up in the small town of Sophie Trace, "The Right Call" addresses how easy it is to let addictions of anything in ones life, from the extremes of gambling to even lying, can have deep trench ramifications to the lives of oneself and to that of others around you.
Both bittersweet and a heart warming love story with familiar characters, "Th "The Right Call" by Kathy Herman, is the last book in the Sophie Trace triology and it is a very heart felt book. Both bittersweet and a heart warming love story with familiar characters, "The Right Call" is not only page turning but it shows how no one is immune from the choices that they make when they let addictions get the best of them. What I enjoyed most was how it focus more on Vanessa Jessup and Ethan Langley and in the midst of the murder and mayhem that is around them, their budding romance.
The only cons that I could really find was the ending felt just a little rushed but at the same time, it doesn't take away from the over all story that does capture your attention and at the end of your seat. A great read for the coming summer nights, I recommend you give the Sophie Trace triology a try if you are in the mood for a little mystery in your life.
Oct 22, Lori Twichell rated it liked it. With emotional ties that keep her closely connected to friends and neighbors throughout the book, Brill is able to systematically take the evidence apart and follow the trails wherever they may go. The spiritual questions are solid without overwhelming the story and the mystery is complex enough to keep you interested until the very end. I thoroughly enjoyed my venture into Sophie Trace and look forward to whatever Kathy Herman brings to the table for her next adventure. Review copy provided by David C.

Vanessa is also a college student, a single mom, and the daughter of the police chief. When a second college student is shot and killed, things become even more complicated in Sophie Trace. The plot thickens as Ethan learns information about the shootings that could break the case wide open — he also faces the risk of endangering the ones he loves.

I wasn't sure how it would do for a stand-alone book, but it fared very well. The story and the characters didn't rely on the previous books and were easy to get to know.
There was references to past happenings, but nothing that would make you feel like you needed to read the others in the series or you were really missing something. I really enjoyed "The Right Call". It was a fast paced mystery packed with murder a When I received "The Right Call", I knew that it was the last book in the series. It was a fast paced mystery packed with murder and excitement.
It was full of twists and turns and along with the mystery, was a side story of romance. I found myself on the edge of my seat more than once. I found Kathy's writing style captivating and her characters likable and quite realistic, especially Ethan. I found that after I finished the book, I wanted to know more about these people and their lives! Mar 05, Holly 2 Kids and Tired rated it liked it. I enjoyed this one a lot more than its predecessor, The Last Word. The third in the Sophie Trace Trilogy, this story is from Ethan's viewpoint. We met him at the beginning of the previous book, and he's returned for the summer to work and save money, as well as spend time with Vanessa and her baby, Carter.
Their romance is sweet, and Vanessa has certainly grown up since the last book. While there are references to the previous two books, this one stands alone just fine. The premise was a bit imp I enjoyed this one a lot more than its predecessor, The Last Word. The premise was a bit implausible and certainly predictable. However, it was also enthralling and captured my attention.
The typical small-town drama is there, as well as the familiar faces at the restaurant lunch counter who discuss the latest criminal events and add an interesting subplot. But it's a fast read and perfect for an afternoon escape. Feb 26, Mandy J.
