I also liked the fact that the author refrained from throwing in some contrived romance, but instead concentrated on the story.
The writing style was a bit flat, but with more practice, I'm sure the author will improve.
This read like a first-semester creative writing class assignment. Terrible dialogue! The author should read her dialogue out loud and rewrite the parts that do not sound like sentences any human being anywhere on earth has ever or would ever utter.
The depiction of the relationship between the main character, Sabre, and her friend, Bob, was goofy. They talked to each other like lovers and were constantly hugging or touching each other, which would have been fine except for the frequent mentions of Bob's wife and kids (who never appeared in the book).
Here is one example of the things in this book that irritated me: In the beginning of the book, Bob and Sabre called each other "honey" several times, but apparently that was just to set up a plot point. When another character wrote a letter that began, "Dear Honey," which was not the addressee's name, Sabre shrugged it off because she and Bob called each other "honey," but after that they never called each other "honey" again.
I do admire this author's persistence in completing and publishing this book. She thought up a story that was mildly entertaining, though completely unrealistic, and got it onto paper. Perhaps a good editor could have helped her turn it into a good read. If she got some editorial help, the later books in the series might be worth reading. I'm not going to take a chance on them; I'll stick to Scott Turow for my legal thrillers.
Gaylord obeys court orders determined to prove he is a fit father so he can regain custody of Alexis. When Sabre talks with Alexis, the frightened tweener asks if she must go home. That question leaves Sabre wondering if Murdock is the upright citizen he claims to be. Someone is also harassing Sabre. Calls with no voice on the other end at any time night or day; items in her home are misplaced or lost; and a bat was tossed into her office through the mail slot. Finally she finds a lizard in her bed with all her doors and windows shut. Sabra discovers Peggy has a daughter Honey who has goes missing yet no police report is filed. She fears what happened to Honey will happen to Alexis and Jamie once they go home, but the law is on the side of Gaylord, so far.
Readers will admire dedicated Sabre, a strong advocate of protecting the young as she deals with adult predators to prevent them from abusing children. Not always easy as the law can be on the side of the beast; still she goes the extra kilometers to try keeping the kids safe. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action though the assault on Sabre adds suspense, but also detracts from a great legal thriller as the lives of children are at stake.
