About this Book
Hayden McCarthy is on track to become the youngest partner in her prestigious D.C. law firm . . . if the case she’s just been handed doesn’t destroy her first.
Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain 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 partnershipâ€”or an attempt to make sure she never gets there.
Further complicating matters is Andrew, her roommateâ€™s distractingly attractive cousin. But Andrewâ€™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 caseâ€”or her. Logic and self-preservation would indicate she should close the case. But how can she, when justice is still just beyond her reach?
This was a good book, but not a great one. Since it has not been released I was reading a draft copy. My guess is the author will tighten up some of the things that bugged me about the story.
I did enjoy the two main characters, Andrew and Hayden. They complimented each extremely well and I enjoyed watching them grow as individuals and as a team. Emilie was a blast! I hope there is a book featuring her. She had spunk.
The story itself got a little confusing in parts, almost too many story lines that didn’t cleanly intersect. I had another issue that I won’t mention here. However, my guess is the author will clean up some of those “messy” parts.
I do hope to read future books by this author. I think her style has a lot of great potential.
