Editorial Reviews


★★★★★ "This is one action-packed, keeps you guessing, can't put it down, legal thriller! Alexi Venice knows how to write engaging and complex courtroom dramas. Standby Counsel is an exceptional tale of crime, drama and romance. Venice leaves her readers captivated till the very end!" -5 Stars-Goodreads-The Lesbian Book Blog
★★★★★ "The writing and pacing is excellent...Characterisation-wise, Stela is a triumph. The way she is described, she evokes a range of emotions. She is variously demure, timid, calculating, mysterious, intimidating - a victim and a criminal. We found ourselves flipping between wanting Stela to be innocent and shocked at new reveals about her. In fact, without particularly trying to give them centre stage, Venice manages to write strong interpersonal relationships between partners (not just Shelby and Monica, but all partners), friends, colleagues and even acquaintances. She gives the people and relationships depth, dimension and flavour." -Best Lesfic Reviews

★★★★★ "This novel would make a very exciting movie. If you like courtroom drama, you're in for a treat. Stela is incredibly intriguing, smart and wicked. Acknowledging from the start than she is the killer allows the story to focus on why the stabbing occurred, and the trial is full of twists and dramatic turns of events." -Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★★ "I love a good courtroom drama, but this is a great courtroom drama! In fact, there is some intense drama outside the courtroom that will keep you involved and wanting to know what happens next, too." -5 Stars Goodreads Reviewer

★★★★★ "Read this book - I believe you will be very happy you did. And by the end of this book, I think you'll be very attached to Monica Spade!!" -5 Stars Goodreads Reviewer
