Blog Tour Review: Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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?

This is a legal thriller that deals with an issue that will grab at your heart - an abusive marriage, a murder including children, and an uncle trying to save his niece from the same fate.   The inclusion of a stalker for the heroine will keep you on the edge of your seat.  I enjoyed the intense way this book was written and the light romance that gives you a little bit of relief from the mystery of everything else going on.  This is the second book in a series and I did not read the first one before reading this one.  There was a little bit of the story that might have been easier to understand if you read the first book first, but for the most part I didn't have any problems reading this one first.
