Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman Book Review

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 the 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:

This is the first novel I have read from Cara Putman. Cara Putman brings a Christian legal thriller alive. This is the second book in this series. This has been a standalone book as I haven’t read the first book in the series.

Cara Putman writes very well. The story caught my attention quickly and I had a hard time putting it down. There are several different plots going on throughout the story. One of the main characters Emilee who is the lawyer has a stalker on top of her having to search for the truth to save Kaylene. I liked all the intriguing elements in the plot of this novel that add a lot of depth to this already complex story.

One of my favorite characters is Reid. He is a character that tugs at your heart and you can’t help but want to see Emilee and Reid together in the end. The characters are very realistic.

There are a lot of characters in this story outside of the main characters. It took me a bit to place some of them together.  I think a bit too many people to follow as many of them had complex roles in the story.

The main focus is on the issue of domestic violence. The author brings this issue to the forefront. Domestic violence isn’t always obvious; indeed its impact is tremendous on those that are living through it.

The story ended rather quickly after reading such a complex story. Regardless, this was an amazing Christian legal thriller.
