Melanie delivers a very quick and comfortable read that offers an insider’s look at the legal system and locals tour of the back roads and complexities of society. Pages turn as the plot develops and the reader stays ever hungry for what comes next. Gripping. Inspiring. Hopeful. The kind of story that makes you want to slow down, so it won’t end. In other words, I found it to be a very easy and enjoyable read. It was fun to delve into the deepest corners of some characters lives and minds while rolling through the kind of gritty realities that simmer below the surface of society.
