Imperfect Justice - Book Review

To the world it seems obvious: 
Kaylene Adams killed her daughter and then was shot by police. 
Attorney Emilie Wesley knows a different story: 
Kaylene would never hurt anyone and was looking for a way out 
of a controlling, abusive relationship. 
Her death shakes Emilie’s belief that she can make a difference 
for women in violent marriages. 
Self-doubt plagues her as she struggles to continue her work 
in the wake of the tragedy.

Reid Billings thought he knew his sister—right up until he learned how she died. 
He discovers a letter from Kaylene begging him to fight for custody 
of her daughters if anything should happen to her. 
No attorney in her right mind would support an uncle
 instead of the father in a custody case, 
but Kaylene’s letter claims Emilie Wesley will help him.

Thrown together in a race to save Kaylene’s surviving daughter, 
Emily and Reid pursue the constantly evasive truth. 
If they can hang on to hope together, can they save a young girl—
and find a future for themselves in the process?




My Thoughts
Cara Putman is a new author for me
and after reading her book Imperfect Justice I fell for her writing,
hook, line, and sinker.
Cara's latest book takes you behind the scenes 
where domestic abuse/violence is brought to light.
This is not a pretty subject and sadly, 
it's one that is often pushed to the side in hopes of it "just going away."
The author writes about this issue in a delicate, 
but also an eye-opening manner.
Cara clearly shows the reader through Kaylene's story 
the impact that domestic violence can have on families.

Imperfect Justice is the kind of book 
that will keep you up late at night turning the pages. . .
it has twists and turns that you didn't expect and will leave you speechless. . .
and it will give you a new awareness about this devastating matter.
This book is filled with suspense and a touch of clean romance,
but it's also incredibly inspirational and moving-
can it get any better, my friends?

The characters were excellent
and their interaction with one another flowed effortlessly.
As I read Imperfect Injustice
I couldn't help but think of our loving God
and His perfect justice. . .
because with Him and in Him there is indeed perfect justice.
If you enjoy legal thrillers than this book is for you.
