I have something to tell you. And it’s all about this latest book.
High-flying lawyer Jessica Wells has it all. A successful career, loving husband Tom and a family she adores. But one case – and one client – will put all that at risk.
Edward Blake. An ordinary life turned upside down – or a man who quietly watched television while his wife was murdered upstairs? With more questions than answers and a case too knotted to unravel, Jessica suspects he’s protecting someone.
Then she comes home one day and her husband utters the words no one ever wants to hear. Sit down … I have something to tell you
Now Jessica must fight not only for the man she defends, but for the man she thought she trusted with her life – her husband.
Like me, I’m sure you’ve read many lawyer/client books. However, there was something different about this one and, of course, I can’t get into it because I don’t want to spoil anything. Let’s discuss how intriguing it was instead.
The author does a great job of luring you in. You know there are secrets to uncover but you have to follow the breadcrumbs first. If I’m to be complexly honest, I do this that the story was dragged out a bit. There were certainly times o was reading and felt parts could have been left out. However, I was satisfied with the story overall as it gave me plenty of action and red herrings.
I can’t make up my mind about the characters. They were well-developed but how much did I like them? I’m not going to dwell on this. Besides different readers taking to different characters, I enjoy being pushed out of my comfort zone. It makes reading more fun.
