A Book In Review.


Brief Summary: 

A family can be torn apart in an instant. Putting it back together is a harder task. A relapsed addict opens the door to find a cop with a search warrant, setting off a chain of events that will cause four lives to intersect. Devin Lenox has already lost one child to the system and this time she vows it will be different. If she’s going to make it, though, she’ll need something she’s never had before- someone on her side. Her battle with depression behind her, Elisa Cahill looks forward to resuming her legal career. Devin’s case seems like the perfect opportunity to do that, and bury her own past demons in the process, at least if old grudges don’t prove to be her undoing.


I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was really intrigued to read this story, I haven’t read any books that deal with the issues that this book tackled, so I was excited to dive in. The story is made up of 4 women’s lives that all twist and turn into each other more than once. Each character has her own demons that she must work through, while dealing with a pretty big life altering event. I found myself getting connected with the character, Devin. I found her story to be the most gripping and really wanted to get to know what it was that made her the way she was. I actually would like the author to write a prequel in just Devin’s persepective. After a couple of chapters I thought I was going to have to get out the dictionary to look up some of the courtroom lingo, but as the story progessed, I became more into the slang. I recommend this book, to anyone who’s looking for something different to read and likes a sense of female power. I give this book 3.5 stars, it’d make a great beach read!

Author Bio:

Michele Shriver currently lives in Iowa, by way of Texas and is proud to call both states ‘home,’ which sometimes means poking fun at them, but always in the nicest way possible. Michele is a practicing attorney, with emphasis in family and juvenile law, who dreams of someday paying the bills as a writer and being a recovering attorney. If that happens, you’ll find her spending winters in Dallas taking in as many Dallas Stars hockey games as possible. When not working or writing, Michele is probably at Zumba class, riding her bike, watching a hockey, football or soccer game on TV or enjoying a glass of Chardonnay on the patio while reading a good book written by someone else.
