High-paced drama: "Breach of Trust (Atlanta Justice Book #3)" by Rachel Dylan
about the book....
When an Open-and-Shut Murder Case Gets Complicated,
Can She Overcome Her Need for Justice?
Corporate litigator Mia Shaw suffers the shock of her life when she finds her colleague and friend brutally murdered. Grief-stricken and furious, Mia vows that she will do anything to make the killer pay.
The man accused of the murder is a friend of security tech guru Noah Ramirez, but the evidence just doesn't add up. To save his former ATF partner, Noah needs to convince Mia that the real killer is still on the loose.
Mia soon has more to worry about than the criminal prosecution. She is tasked with taking over her friend's last case and learns he was hiding dark secrets about his client. She thinks she may have stumbled upon corporate espionage that has turned deadly, but she has no idea of the danger involved. Her only ally is Noah, despite their difference of opinion about the killer's identity. Can Noah win Mia over to his side and protect her from ever-growing threats?
The Atlanta Justice series comes to a finish at a break-neck pace with Rachel Dylan's latest book, "Breach of Trust". From the opening scenes of the first chapter, to the suspense-infused final moments of the book, I was held firmly in the grip of this well-plotted novel.
Mia is a strong character who really comes into her own over the course of the novel, as she rises to the challenges set before her and learns an important lesson about faith while doing so. I enjoyed watching her transformation, realizing that this world is not all that there is, and that no matter the circumstances our peace comes from knowing that there is more in store for us than our time on earth. The relationship that develops between Mia and Noah is an intriguing one to watch unfold, as at first Mia and Noah end up on opposite sides of the battle lines that have been drawn. I wasn't sure how Dylan was going to handle that challenge, but I felt that things unfolded in a natural and believable way. Although the novel fits well in the romantic suspense genre, I didn't ever feel that things were too mushy such that it would get in the way of a male reader like myself enjoying the novel. Dylan's experience as a litigator certainly shines over the course of the novel, as the legal elements felt truly authentic and served to add another layer to the suspense that unfolds.
"Breach of Trust" is another fine addition to Rachel Dylan's repertoire, and was enjoyable from start to finish. I award this novel a very solid 4 out of 5 stars, and encourage fans of suspense novels with a romantic flair to grab a copy of this one for themselves. If you've missed the first books in the series, you can dive in no problem without feeling like you have missed out on elements of the story, but I do encourage you to grab all three of these well-crafted books!
