I didn’t want it to end

By Laura Atchison on AMAZON.com

I don’t get much of a chance to read fiction books these days and I am so glad I picked this one up. From the first few pages I was drawn into the characters lives. Whenever I put it down to attend to something else, I would walk back into the room where I had the book and wonder why the tv isn’t on. The images conjured up while reading this book were so vivid I felt like I was watching the story unfold on screen rather than on pages. The author’s skill at storytelling for this, her debut novel, is exceptional. If you are looking for a book that will draw you in, keep you guessing as to outcomes while at the same time making you feel connected to the characters even after the book is finished, I highly recommend you grab a copy today.

I rarely read fiction, but this book came with such high recommendations, I gave it a read. Wow, so glad I did! If you are looking for a story that keeps your attention from start to finish, this is it. A book with a real-life feel to it, interesting characters and also a meaningful message. I couldn’t put it down and I hope Ms. Bragg is already working on the next in this series, because I can’t wait to read more about Alex!

More than a legal thriller!

By Jennifer W – posted from Amazon.com

Read. This. Book. This debut novel from Houston attorney Melanie Bragg has it all. It’s a gripping story you cannot put down. Can’t. Put. The. Book. Down. The characters are beautifully developed and complex, you will miss them when the story is over. The heroine, Alex Stockton, goes through such a personal, professional and spiritual transformation, you will weep with genuine joy when the story concludes. This is the kind of novel that doesn’t feel like fiction. After reading this book, you will feel hopeful, optimistic, motivated to create the same kind of meaning and change in your own life. So this isn’t just a legal thriller, although it is definitely an exciting story. This book could very well be the one that changes your mind and your heart. Or, you’ll just think it’s a fabulous story. I can’t wait to read what Alex does next.

Page-turner with a Powerful Message!

By John M. DeAngelis on September 2, 2013

Couldn’t put this book down. Loved the strong, morally upright main character who is driven to benevolence without monetary rewards..Powerful message about how God’s plan for us may differ from our own and how important it is to listen. I am hoping for a sequel because I can’t wait to see what Alex does next!

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.

This one is a real page turner–and a great debut novel from Melanie Bragg.
