About the Book
Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain that follows when justice is not served. It’s why she became an attorney and why she’s so driven in her career. When she’s assigned a wrongful death case against the government, she isn’t sure if it’s the lucky break she needs to secure a partnership—or an attempt to make sure she never gets there.
Further complicating matters is Andrew Wesley, her roommate’s distractingly attractive cousin. But Andrew’s father is a congressman, and Hayden’s currently taking on the government. Could the timing be any worse?
The longer she keeps the case active, the higher the stakes become. Unknown enemies seem determined to kill the case—or her. Logic and self-preservation indicate she should close the case. But how can she, when justice is still just beyond her reach?
This book had me sitting at the edge of my seat, biting my fingernails, and reading as fast as I could to get to the end. It was full of suspense, twists and turns, and clues here and there that give you just enough information to make you scratch your head and beg for more. And aside from all that was this sweet love story that took its time to evolve. It was there enough to grab your attention, but not so much that it overshadowed the main storyline.
Believe it or not, Andrew was my favorite character. He is stuck in this political arena, something he doesn’t really want any part of at all, hiding this huge secret – he is actually a political cartoonist. I just thought this was so hilarious, knowing that I myself would probably want to be doing the same thing if I were in his shoes. Andrew also had this really soft and caring side, and I could see myself being friends with him. Hayden also – she was just this go-getter who knew what she wanted, and which side she was one and no one was going to persuade her otherwise. I could totally see myself helping her get ready for a court case!
If you are just looking for a romantic book, this probably isn’t for you. But if you are looking for a little romance, mixed with some thrilling suspense and action – you better pick this book up and start reading it today! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
About the Author
Since the time I could read Nancy Drew, I have wanted to write mysteries. In 2005 I attended a book signing at my local Christian bookstore. The rest, as they say, is history. There I met Colleen Coble. With prompting from my husband, I shared my dream with Colleen. Since those infamous words, I’ve been writing award-winning books with the count currently at 25.
In addition to writing, I am a homeschooling mom of four, attorney, lecturer at a Big Ten university, active in women’s ministry, and all around crazy woman. Crazy about God, my husband, and my kids. I graduated with honors from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Huskers!), George Mason Law School, and Purdue University’s MBA program.
