*This book was sent to me to review, but all opinions are my own.
No good deed goes unpunished. When Jane Larson—a hot-shot litigator for a large firm in New York City—helps out a friend, she is sucked into the unfamiliar world of divorce and child support.
Jane’s discovery of the deadbeat dad’s hidden assets soon unravels a web of lies, drugs, and murder that keeps getting more dangerous.
Soon, Jane is involved in a high stakes race to recover a missing suitcase of cash and catch the murderer before she becomes the next victim.
I do think this book was a little hard to get into originally. If court cases and trials really interest you, this will not be the same reaction you have. The beginning is a little hard to get used to because of the lawyer terms used, but it makes sense for the story.
However, a couple chapters in, I was hooked! The story was really well written, and there was a lot of action. It is a murder mystery so you are constantly suspicious of EVERYONE.
The writing was really well done, and I liked the characters a lot. However, I didn’t really like the main character, Jane. She wasn’t very consistent and a little annoying at times, if I am being honest. Also, sometimes I had to stop and think about who each character was, because there were a lot introduced and it was hard to follow along with.
The story was super enjoyable and intense, though. I don’t often read stories like this, but I am glad I read this one. It was easy to get through, and was pretty fast-paced. This is also the second book in the series, which I didn’t know initially, but you don’t have to read the first to follow along, because I didn’t.
Overall, it was a good, quick read. I would give it 3/5 stars.
Check it out if this is the type of story that would interest you!
