About this Book

“This is the way legal thrillers are meant to be—compelling, intelligent, and deeply satisfying.” —Randy Singer, author of Rule of Law
THE POLICE SAY THE WOMAN WAS A MURDERER. EMILIE WESLEY KNOWS THEY CAN’T BE TALKING ABOUT HER CLIENT . . . CAN THEY?
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?

Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman takes us into a case where it is obvious to the world that Kaylene Adams killed her daughter and then was shot by police. The thing is, Attorney Emilie Wesley knows a different story.

Emilie knows Kaylene wouldn’t hurt her family. Kaylene was looking for a way out of the controlling and abusive relationship she has been in.

I enjoyed this book more than the first one in the series. I recently visited Washington DC, where a lot of this story takes place, so I enjoyed the setting of this book. I enjoyed some of the added details from the author and have some new places I want to visit.

The overall story was interesting and held my attention. There were parts that didn’t keep me as engaged as I would have liked, but those were made up for with the suspense elements that kept me turning the pages.

Overall this was a good read. It had an interesting and relevant storyline and suspenseful scenes that kept me reading. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series, Delayed Justice.
