Dying for Love by Cara Putman

Legal Fiction

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me. I received a complimentary copy of this book, for which I’ve given an honest review.

“Anything of value is worth a fight.”

Ciara Turner and David Evans once failed to make a go of their personal relationship, since their attorney roles often put them on opposing sides of family cases. But when they discover a judge they both admire has been murdered, they’ll have to work together on the investigation in Dying for Love by author Cara Putman.

Hmm. Kinda did a double-take there, as the official book blurb keeps mentioning “Daniel.” The character’s name is David.

Anyhow, I wanted to read this novella before reading the first novel in the Hidden Justice romantic suspense series. Or is it a legal thriller series? Well, I’m a fan of both!

While I would’ve liked to get a more convincing sense of the guilty party’s motive here, why this particular culprit had taken so drastic a step as murder, I think I was into the suspense side of the story more than the romantic one. I found the romance tricky to follow emotionally, but it also seemed redundant in places, with some thoughts and doubts being rehashed a time or two more than was needed.

Still, the story has put me in anticipation to continue this romantic-suspense-legal-thriller series, which I’ll be doing soon.

Here’s my review of the first novel in the Hidden Justice series, Beyond Justice.
