In The Kiverson Case, Ann and Patrick play a deadly game with a man willing to kill to seek revenge. The Davidson Case features Ann’s younger sister, Joy, who uncovers enough of a secret to earn her a visit from an assassin. The Keres Case has Ann and Patrick facing a serial killer from their past.
Heartfelt Cases Book 1: The Collins Case
Working for the FBI certainly isn’t a “normal” job, but Special Agent Julie Ann Davidson has never encountered a case as personal as this one. Although not officially assigned to the case, Ann and her partner, Patrick Duncan, take up the cause of finding Rachel, Jason, and Emily Collins. As if that task wasn’t enough, Ann and Patrick also have a baffling case of internet thievery to investigate.
Who is Christopher Collins and what about his past is endangering his family? Where are Rachel and the kids being held? Where is God in the midst of chaos? Will Ann and Patrick arrive in time or will they find only pain?
Heartfelt Cases Book 2: The Kiverson Case
One man’s vendetta could cost them everything …
When a routine arrest turns deadly, FBI Special Agents Julie Ann and Patrick Duncan are drawn into a dangerous game with Kevin Kiverson, a man with little to lose and much to avenge.
In her heart, Ann knows they will catch Kevin, but she doesn’t know when or how or what sacrifices will be made along the way. She’s prepared to risk her life for others but will her resolve hold when the threat turns to her baby boy?
Heartfelt Cases Book 3: The Davidson Case
Somebody wants her sister dead …
FBI Special Agent Ann Duncan knows how to face down danger, but once again, she’s not the target. Her baby sister, Joy Davidson, has stumbled upon a conspiracy and made some powerful enemies.
Luck and God’s grace help Ann save her sister the first time, but she knows the bad guys will try again. With Patrick on a university tour and perhaps the most important case of her career weighing upon her mind, Ann must find the strength, wisdom, and heart to find out who wants her sister dead, what Joy discovered, and how to stop the conspirators. Ann instinctively knows that if she fails the Davidson case will only be the first of many tragedies.
Heartfelt Cases Book 4: The Keres Case
After six years of silence, a serial kidnapper and killer returns …
His plans are convoluted. His motives are obscure. He leaves notes, cards, and other clues. What he truly wants is a worthy opponent. He kidnaps a boy only to return him in the Erie National Wildlife Refuge as promised. Then, he snatches one of the volunteers searching the woods for the child.
When FBI Special Agents Ann and Patrick Duncan are assigned to the case, they soon realize the kidnapper likes getting personal. To make matters worse, the perpetrator has help from surprising sources: victims’ families. The more the agents learn about The Keres Legacy, the clearer it becomes that their family and friends are both fair game.
Losing clearly means somebody dies, but even winning might come at a cost.

Praise for The Collins Case:

Praise for The Kiverson Case:
“Different case different circumstances but once again Julie has great character development and knows when to bring in the spirituality each character needs at just the right time.” ~S. Davey
“A lovely Christian read. It is wonderful to read a Christian mystery/ thriller without all the gore and graphic violence in traditional police procedural novels.” ~Book fanatic
Praise for The Davidson Case:
“I think what I liked most about this particular book in the series is that it shows how difficult it can be to have a normal home life when one or both parents are FBI agents (assuming that actual FBI agents work hours like Ann and Patrick Duncan)” ~Kathryn Svendsen
“I love how Julie Gilbert makes her characters come alive and makes you feel like you are right there in the story too.” ~Gail A Demaree
Praise for The Keres Case:
"The Keres Case is an exciting, well written story of kidnappings, mysteries, and surprises. There are well defined characters, great dialogs, haunting questions, and even a bit of sci-fi. Did I mention a psychopath? Oh yeah, a really creepy one. You won't be able to put it down until the very last page!"
