Bestselling and award-winning author DiAnn Mills delivers a heart-stopping story of a faulty construction job, the discovery of a dead body, and a sinister plot.

On the family’s Brazos River Ranch in Texas, Avery Elliott helps run her grandfather’s commercial construction business. Raised by Senator Elliott, Avery has never doubted her grandfather is the man of integrity and faith she’s always believed him to be …. until the day she finds him standing with a gun over the body of a dead man. To make matters worse, Avery’ just discovered a billing discrepancy for materials supposedly purchased for construction of the Lago de Cobre Dam.

Desperate for answers, Avery contacts FBI Special Agent Marc Wilkins for help. As Marc works to identify the dead man Avery saw, threats toward Avery create a fresh sense of urgency to pinpoint why someone wants to silence her. With a hurricane approaching the Texas coast and the structural integrity of the Lago de Cobre Dam called into question, time is running out to get to the bottom of a sinister plot that could be endangering the lives of not only Avery and her loved ones but the entire community.


What Does Comfort Mean to You?

by DiAnn Mills

In Concrete Evidence, the meaning of comfort ties in with how Avery and Marc envisioned home and family.

The meaning of comfort intrigues me, especially with the stress so many people face each day. No point going into the many stressors bombarding us, or this post would be 6,000 words long. If you’re like me, we want to help others in a way that’s healthy and beneficial to them. Other times we want to be comforted when life tosses a curve ball.

Comfort means freedom from physical, mental, or spiritual pain. The concept soothes the weary, ushers in rest, and seems to lift the burden from our hearts and shoulders. Providing love and encouragement to someone who needs aid blesses them and us. Small things. Large things. Definitely a worthy gift for the recipient and giver.
