***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
One of Iowa’s most prominent criminal attorneys, Joci Dorous is ruthless and devoid of emotion in the courtroom. It’s what makes her the best. Her most recent client allegedly committed murder and, despite a rocky start, Joci is determined to win Cameron Shearer’s case.
Since this is her first homicide, she has the support of a second-chair attorney—her ex who wants her back. To make things more complicated, her hunky cop of a booty call, Cameron’s arresting officer, isn’t quite ready to let her go either. Who knew being surrounded by three hot guys could be so deliciously exhausting?
As the mystery of the case unravels, she soon discovers the true reason behind Cameron’s impromptu visit to Iowa. It’s this knowledge that endangers all those she holds dear. Caught up in confusion, chaos, and criminal law, how will her heart survive the final verdict?
Joci is working with her ex-husband to clear her childhood friend of murder while continuing a relationship with the arresting officer….it just didn’t seem realistic to me as a reader or as someone who knows a bit about the way the judicial system works. There were so many conflicts of interest in this story that it left me feeling a bit put off by it.
The premise of the story is interesting and the author does a good job with most aspects of the story, but there are just a few too many things for me to overlook to give it a full 5 stars. I am looking forward to reading more of this author and to seeing how she grows as an author. Don’t not get this book, but don’t move it straight to the top of your TBR list either. It is a good book when you are looking for something a bit different. Not a terrible read, but not the best read ever either.
