Depth of Deceit - Book Review

Blonde and beautiful, fledging attorney Stephanie Saunders vows to protect the innocent even though as indigent defense attorney her clients rarely are. Does that include Josh Durrant who seems to be following her? Stephanie is dismayed when her peers begin calling her “Prom Queen” as her boyfriend, Todd Saxton, often does. Desperately trying to prove her worth, she falls prey to those who steal her innocence. Although she plans to forgive Todd for his ultimate betrayal, she is never given the chance. Her boss, Attorney Charles Connelly, offers solace, but is Stephanie’s welfare, or his own, top priority? The only thing that keeps Stephanie sane in her insane world are the horses she loves but does not own, especially the abused mare, Riskie Business, whose example helps Stephanie make the most difficult decision of her life. Relying on wit and courage, Stephanie must save herself and another during the final showdown where she proves a loyalty of which she never knew herself capable. This book kept me guessing. I love guessing. When I wasn't reading I would ponder: who was really the "bad guy" and how much danger was Stephanie in? It was such a fun read because of all the unknowns. I was also impressed by the way the author handled some heartbreaking turns in the story. As I reader I was sad about what happened but it didn't make me depressed, instead I wanted to keep reading to see how Stephanie was going to plow through. What I liked: Good, clean romance with a unique plot. What I didn't like: The resolution dragged on a bit, but I think I felt this way because my perception was off. When I saw that the suspense had been resolved I assumed something else was coming, especially because there was one more bad guy unaccounted for. Instead, I got a lot of happy times with the heroine and hero. Not a bad thing at all, just not what I was expecting. Audience: Young adults on up would enjoy this book, especially if they like horses.

  3. For the price and the reliability that comes with the movement, I am ok with this slight rolex replica uk in the design, but some others might find it unacceptable. The selling point for me with replica watches is the thick stainless steel case paired with a scratch resistant. If you can follow regatta racing and are clear on some of the physical rigors involved for people or replica watches on board one of these vessels in a race. For anyone who has ever been on a boat and I am not talking cruiseship here, a boat is a horrible place for a nice replica watches sale which this is except the price. You will bang it to crap and it will look like dog shite in no time. This pointless gimmicky rolex replica sale is the last thing you need while running in a highly competitive race and the 2017 rolex replica is the cherry on this really expensive tofuty cake.
