Product Description

Synopsis

Kell Jameson has made a cushy life for herself as a big city lawyer, putting her less-than-auspicious past behind her. But, all her secrets could be exposed when the orphanage where she grew up contacts her. Asked to defend two teenagers who remind her so much of her younger self, Kell has no choice but to give her all to this case, even if it shakes up the world she's worked so hard to build. With the help of Detective Luke Canders, Kell is determined to free her clients - but will it mean that she must open herself up to a man who will settle for nothing less than the absolute truth?

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but incomplete 13 July 2008
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Kell Jameson is a hugely successful defence lawyer, independent and smart, who has made something of herself since her youth as an orphan living in rural Georgia. Eliza, when the lady who brought her up, contacts Kell for help, Kell responds immediately and travels to Hallden to help investigate a murder. Eliza knows that there's a lot of evidence that suggests she killed drug dealer Clay Griffin, and indeed she visited him the night he died, but she didn't actually kill him.

When Kell arrives in Hallden she bumps into the Sheriff, Luke Calder, and there's an instant attraction. However Kell can't be open with him and has to lie on occasion to protect her client - can they have a future when it's hard to trust each other. Luke and Kell, searching for evidence to clear Eliza, start to uncover something very big. Luke's also finding the local Police Chief Graves causing him difficulties over jurisdiction. Can Kell keep Eliza safe, can Luke persuade Kell to trust him, can they find out what really happened?

This book was well written with a good plot and a variety of characters. Kell herself was often difficult to like, although that didn't seem a problem for Sheriff Luke Calder. The mixture of courtroom stuff, police investigation and romance was well balanced and interesting. However I was very disappointed, at the end of the book, to discover that the story was in no way rounded off; I understand the author is writing more books about these events from the viewpoints of Kell's friends but it meant that this story seemed just stop with minimal resolution. It was a disappointment after the events appeared to be leading up to a grand showdown with the underlying events being revealed.

5.0 out of 5 stars action-packed romantic suspense thriller 29 Jun 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Atlanta attorney Kell Jameson left her hometown Hallden and the orphanage she grew up in behind; vowing never to return. However, the only person she would go back to help needs her and she is summoned back to her hometown after years of running away since the fiery incident back in 1991 broke up the Three Musketeers (Kell, Fin and Julia). Mrs. Faraday, the kind head of the orphanage where she lived, is accused of murder.

Sheriff Luke Calder investigates the homicide of a local drug dealer. He stops Kell for a traffic violation, but she flees the scene. Luke follows Kell to the diner where he hands her the tickets and asks her out. As they work the case and related matters, they fall in love. However besides the commute, Kell fears telling him the truth because she needs to protect Fin Borders and Julia Warner and believes he will not just reject her when he learns her darkest secrets from 1991 he will expose them.

RECKLESS is an action-packed romantic suspense thriller that sets the tone of the story line with its 1991 prologue and never slows down afterward. The cast is strong as it brings to life small town Georgia even some players from the past and from beyond. However, the tale is owned by the feisty courageous yet vulnerable heroine who finds love with the one person who can destroy her. Selena Montgomery allows her recovery specialists to rest (see SECRETS AND LIES, and HIDDEN SINS) with an entertaining regional thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Selena Montgomery does it again... 25 Oct 2008
By P. Danielle Nellis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ms. Montgomery sets herself apart, oncemore, as an awesome writer. I've read every Montgomery novel and must say this is my favorite (so far). Readers can truly identify with these well developed characters. I felt like I was discovering the answers to the mystery right along with the guarded, sexy defense attorney and the chiselled, secretive police chief. I'm still sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the remaining two novels in what promises to be an outstanding trilogy!!

It was a disappointment after the events appeared to be leading up to a grand showdown with the underlying events being revealed. There were also one or two plot unlikelihoods, such as Kell and the Sheriff stumbling on a secret location important to the story and also a potential client of Kell's keeping faith with her and agreeing to pay her more when she's significantly messed about by Kell.

Overall I enjoyed this book but was very disappointed that the story didn't adequately conclude and would have appreciated some hint of this on the back cover.
