Imperfect Justice - Book Review

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

About the Book:

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?

My Review:

This is the second book in the Hidden Justice series.  I haven't head the pleasure of reading the first book yet but think I'm going to after reading Imperfect Justice.  The book is a legalistic thriller with romance that tells of a lady named Emilie who helps clients escape abusive relationships.  It is up to her to help clear a client's name and find out the actual facts.  In the meantime, Emilie has a stalker of her own she has to deal with.

There are hints of character back stories that might make it helpful to read the first book in this series.  I found the plot to be intriguing and it kept my interest.  I like how domestic violence and the struggles the victims have to bear is brought to light.  I'm not sure the whole stalker scenario was necessary for the main point of the book but it still commanded my attention.
