A huge thank you to the author for asking me to review this one.
There are two sides to every crime…
Returning home to care for her ill mother, and approaching her fortieth birthday, Natalie Bach is devastated when she’s dumped without explanation by her long-term boyfriend.
Struggling to pick herself up, she’s offered her old job at Goldman Law. Jack Goldman’s estranged son Julian has been arrested for attempted murder and he wants Natalie to find out why.
With the help of fellow solicitor Gavin Savage, Natalie sets out to investigate, but with a series of red herrings ahead, will she ever discover the truth?
And can Natalie avoid her personal problems interfering with the case?
This is the first book in the legal thrillers by Caro Land- a new author for me. However, this has definitely converted me as a fan of this one.
The characters are extremely well-developed and given personality. I actually feel as though I know each of them. This book is filled with the perfect amount of dialogue and description. This has really made the author’s style stand out for me.
I have loved that the sole concentration has not been on the case as with most legal thrillers. Instead, we’ve had a full picture of the characters and some romantic suspense thrown in as well.
This is definitely a book which caters for lovers of a range of genres and is definitely a book I will be recommending.
Caro Land has created a book which is impossible to put down. I started this one before bed and there was absolutely no way that I could sleep before if finished. I’m so glad there is a second book!
A definite five star read. Absolutely should be on the TBR.
