Riveting New Series Offers Legal Suspense with a Romantic Twist

In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.

Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower’s allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.

Determined not to make the same mistakes, he’s intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything–even murder–to keep the case from going to trial.

Packing a powerful punch, this novel had suspense, romance, and even legal drama, with the characters both seeking and questioning God.  Kate Sullivan is a lawyer who is tapped to lead a big case against a large pharmaceutical company.  But how far will the company go to keep from losing money?  And who is behind the evil Kate finds herself up against?

After being chosen lead counsel and realizing she needs to dig deep into the case as there is much more than meets the eye, Kate decides to hire a private investigator and has Landon James recommended to her.  He is former military who is “haunted by mistakes in his past” but determined to make the future different, and to protect Kate!

Both Kate and Landon have issues – will the issues keep them apart or draw them together (okay – it’s a romance novel so what do you think!).  But seeing them work through them really was great!   He feels God has abandoned him – she relies on God “…she closed her eyes for a moment and asked God to give her the strength to get through this litigation.”  I really loved some of the seeking dialogue between Kate and Landon.  Kate encourages him – “He knows your pain and struggles, Landon.  They aren’t any surprise to Him.”

This is a wonderful novel and I recommend it!  I had such a hard time putting it down! I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I am freely writing a review – all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Justice Buried

Bradley_JB_11_28-1-1-518x800

In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she’s ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she’s out of her league–and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he’s the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.

Crackling with romantic tension and laced with intrigue, this suspenseful story from award-winning author Patricia Bradley will keep readers guessing–and looking over their shoulders.

What a neat murder mystery – although that sounds a little strange!  I so enjoyed how a “cold case” came to life!  And honestly, my hands got clammy as I read Kelsey’s adventures climbing up walls and rappelling down great heights without a belayer!  The author is quite skilled at bringing words to life!

Kelsey is the daughter of a thief and she loves finding flaws in security systems – not for her own illegal gains but so the owners can improve their systems.  And she loves the challenge – not only with the cyber part of security but also the brick and mortar as she skillfully breaks into buildings.  But will Detective Brad Hollister believe her –  that she is not like her father?  Kelsey and Brad have a past – but will they have a future?

This novel had action through and through, yet also an underlying message that God is there.  At one-point Kelsey struggles as she reads the Bible.  “People let you down; how did she know God wouldn’t too? … She wasn’t even sure she’d know how to depend on God.”  As an aside, I loved how Kelsey was reading her Bible on her phone!

If you are looking for a suspenseful murder mystery with some romance and the seeking for God in one’s life, I highly recommend this book!  I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I am freely writing a review – all thoughts and opinions are my own.
