Nina Reilly has (as usual) gotten herself mixed up with a client that has little chance of winning her freedom from a murder charge. This client has enemies other than the prosecution and they are trying to kill her and Nina always seems to be in the line of fire. Whether she thinks Misty is guilty of murdering her husband or not has no bearing on Nina's defense and the more roadblocks thrown at her, the more she digs her heels in, refusing to give up. Sometimes Nina's tactics puzzle me, but it makes the book a little more interesting.
A female attorney intrigue with lots of suspense.
Good legal thriller. A bit longish in some areas, but it still kept my attention. I loved that it was set in Lake Tahoe, since I grew up in El Dorado County and know all about that setting (it was almost weird reading about Apple Hill!), but it might be distracting to someone not familiar with the area. I'm happy to have found a new series to enjoy!
Perri O'Shaughnessy is always good.
A novel about Nina Reilly. She is an attorney that has to start her life over again after a divorce. She moves from San Franciscon to Lake Tahoe and opens her own law office. She meets Michelle "Misty Patterson and takes her own as client, first in a divorce case that turns into defending her for her husband's murder. This novel keeps you in suspense to the very end. Wonderfully written. I couldn't put it down.
