Ready for a Legal Thriller ? Love authors like Lisa Scottoline , Mark Gimenez and John Grisham ?
Review: Law of Attraction - Allison Leotta - October 2010
It's been awhile since I had read any legal thrillers or crime stories and I think since I have been heavily involved in watching Criminal Minds ( I've nearly finished S2) the idea of Crime and legal thrillers have crossed into my reading sphere.
Law of Attraction by Allison Leotta is a novel that fans of Lisa Scottoline and Marcia Clark will be able to relate to as it is not everyday that a female author can write an amazing Legal Thriller as one compares the amount of females to males writing in this genre.
In Law of Attraction , we meet new Lawyer Anna Curtis who has managed to pull the Valentine's Day shift which as we learn is one of the worst days as after love comes violence. While working the day, Anna runs into an old school chum from Harvard Law - Nick Wagner, who is a Public Defender Lawyer.
Soon Anna and Nick's lives will become intertwined past the few dates that they have as Anna meets abused woman Laprea Johnson , whom we discover her husband D'Marco is Nick's Client . When Laprea turns up murdered it seems like a slam dunk case for Anna, but soon evidence does not seem to add up and the case is about to get even more spookier. Enter Jack , he is one of the main lawyers on the case and working closely with Anna. The pair as Anna can't be with Nick get closer and closer and soon Anna is forced to choose between Jack or Nick ? What happens though when the one she thought she loved and cared about is not what he seems but in fact one of the bad guys ? Can Anna survive the mess she is in or does she wish now that she had never met either Laprea or D'Marco ?
Find out in Law of Attraction , discover how it can turn VERY Deadly.
