BOTTOM-LINE:
Surprisingly light story given the dark nature of the case
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
Megan McGee is a 30-something lawyer facing a quiet Christmas with her dog when a new crying client Bonnie Cantrell comes asking for a restraining order.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
The restraining order is against an abusive ex, Carl, who's also an ex-cop, and Bonnie is worried for the safety of not only herself but also her son and her new lover. The story starts as a simple textbook case, but starts to morph as it becomes evident that while Carl is unhinged, perhaps Bonnie isn't telling the whole truth.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
A thread of Christmas presents runs through the story showing that sometimes little miracles do happen, but it's rather cliché.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow him on social media.
