I liked how the cases that JD and Lanie were involved in were intersected. The story is complex with many characters yet it is easy to follow. This was another book by Ann Jacobs that was difficult to put down
I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.
With her sham of a marriage headed toward divorce, Lanie Winstead heads down to the Florida Keys for a work conference. Surrounded by other lawyers all day, all Lanie wants to do is escape to the beach for some solitude. When her path unexpectedly crosses with well-known attorney JD Ackerman, Lanie isn't prepared for the instant attraction she feels. After spending 8 years in a loveless marriage to a state senator, Lanie suddenly finds herself exploring a world of passion that she didn't know existed. But what will happen when they return to their everyday lives?
JD wants nothing more than to openly spend time with Lanie and explore their new feelings for each other. But when her soon-to-be husband turns up dead and Lanie is the prime suspect, their budding relationship will have to wait while they figure out who could have framed her.
While this is the 8th book in the series and I haven't read the rest, I would still recommend it. You don't really need to be familiar with the other books to enjoy this story.
Lanie Winston is the estranged wife of Senator Wayne Winston. Coming from poor white trash she manages to become a lawyer with the help from her husband. While at the seminar she meets JD and they find they are attracted to each other. When she confronts Wayne asking for the divorce date to be moved up she is threatened by Bert, Wayne’s sleazy Campaign Manager.
This story is fast paced and a page turner. There’s a case going on concerning Franchise Fraud and the player’s involved will surprise you. Also a secret that gets someone killed and an innocent accused of the murder. This is a must read for Ann Jacob fans, and if you have never read any of her work before, I highly suggest you start with Framed.
Some parts of the story felt a bit outdated to me. The mindset of people over a bi-sexual Senator, the perceived scandal that would occur if the truth of a marriage for convenience came out, and a woman having a relationship with a man after being separated from her husband (and living separately) for a year. Definitely felt more like everyday life.
I liked that Lanie was a rags to riches story but I had a hard time connecting with the character. I wish she had been a bit stronger. I did like JD’s character – the strong sense of protecting Lanie, him being completely supportive and willing to stick with her through everything.
I appreciated the happily-ever-after.
This is was an intriguing story with lots of twists. A love story with a murder mystery.
When Lanie agreed to marry up and coming senator and pretend they were very much in love she didn't know what she was getting into exactly.
They had an secret open marriage. Could sleep with whoever they wanted. It's just that her husband was sleeping with men.
She decided to file for divorce but her husband's electoral manager refused to let her "ruin his name" before the elections were over.
This is a criminal mystery so I won't be able to say more but one thing. Go get this book it is awesome!!
