Hi guys. Long time, no see. I guess I’m partially to blame for that. School has been stressing me out with all the homework. However, in my free time I read as much as I can.
Goodreads Description: No good deed goes unpunished. When Jane Larson—a hot-shot litigator for a large firm in New York City—helps out a friend, she is sucked into the unfamiliar world of divorce and child support. Jane’s discovery of the deadbeat dad’s hidden assets soon unravels a web of lies, drugs, and murder that keeps getting more dangerous. Soon, Jane is involved in a high stakes race to recover a missing suitcase of cash and catch the murderer before she becomes the next victim.
I have got some extremely mixed feelings over this book. I loved Jane’s character; I admired the fact that she knew what she wanted in life and wouldn’t let anything get in the way of that. In addition to Jane, we’re introduced to a plethora of other characters, while I did enjoy the addition the characters, sometimes I had a hard time of keeping everyone straight, which made some parts of this book difficult to get through. The plot/mystery wasn’t the most suspenseful I’ve seen & was a bit slow to get into the action and excitement. I did suspect who the killer was before the ending. The one aspect I feel that the plot would have benefited from was character development. I found the writing uneven and hard to get into at first but progressively got better as you went along. I found the story confusing at some parts because of all the laws and regulations. However, I REALLY loved that in the end the heroine must save herself using her own wits, resources and intelligence. She doesn’t need to rely on a dashing muscular hero to come in and save the day.
