Imperfect Justice

Also Available In

"This is the way legal thrillers are meant to be-compelling, intelligent, and deeply satisfying." -Randy Singer, author of Rule of Law

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?

Such a great book!
4 stars By Laura, Mar 15 2018
I had never read any sort of suspense novel before, but I am so glad I picked up this one. Imperfect Justice follows a legal battle for the custody of a young girl. The characters were charming, yet strong. The story line drew me and kept me until the very end. I found this book easy and enjoyable. This book isn't very appropriate for teens, and adults affected by abuse may want to use caution as some topics in this book could be quite distressing. But otherwise, I would wholeheartedly recommend that you read this book!

Solid inspirational legal thriller
4 stars By Iola, Dec 13 2017
Imperfect Justice is an excellent mix of legal thriller and romantic suspense. There is plenty of suspense, lots of legal problems, and enough romance to make sure it doesn't all get too heavy. And while it's dealing with women in abusive situations, it's hard-hitting without being explicit.

Imperfect Justice is the second book in Cara Putman's Hidden Justice series, following Beyond Justice. The stories follow a group of female attorneys, so work as standalone stories. Recommended for fans of legal thrillers and romantic suspense from authors such as Rachel Dylan, Carrie Stuart Parks, Colleen Coble and Lynette Eason.
