A gripping read from the very first pages. Karen Robards is an author with 'real' insight into the human dynamics that make up families and relationships. She has used the struggle of single parenthood, with the added tension of raising a rebellious teenager and bound it with the clash and subsequent romance with a detective. Even if the roles of the judge and detective are somewhat 'lightweight' this is a book written with a plot guarenteed to keep the reader turning the pages. Ms Robards is a worthy mix of Nora Roberts and LaVyrle Spencer. If you like those two authors you should love this book.
