From the Back Cover:
To the world it seems obvious: Kaylene Adams killed her daughter and then was shot by police. Attorney Emilie Wesley knows a different story: Kaylene would never hurt anyone and was looking for a way out of a controlling, abusive relationship. Her death shakes Emile's belief that she can make a difference for women in violent marriages. Self-doubt plagues her as she struggles to continue her work in the wake of the tragedy.
Reid Billings thought he knew his sister--right up until he learned how she died. He discovers a letter from Kaylene begging him to fight for custody of her daughters if anything should happen to her. No attorney in her right mind would support an uncle instead of the father in a custody case, but Kaylene's letter claims Emilie Wesley will help him.
Thrown together in the race to save Kaylene's surviving daughter, Emilie and Reid pursue the constantly evasive truth. If they can hang on to hope together, can they save a young girl--and find a future for themselves in the process?
I thought this novel was well written and definitely lives up to its genre of suspenseful thriller. It was a story I couldn't put down, but one that had me tense with anticipation as to what would happen next. I liked how Cara's characters are a group of friends, and how they each play a part in the other's lives. It's fun to read about characters in the beginning of a series and see them show up in the subsequent novels. It makes you feel a little familiar with the story even though you are reading a new book. I will say that even though I have not read the first book in this series, it did not hinder me from beginning with the second book. You can tell there is a story with Andrew and Hayden, but not knowing that story didn't interfere with me enjoying this novel. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who loves mystery and suspense. So make sure to pick this one up the next time you're looking for a new book to read!
My Rating: ★★★★
