Found this on my bookshelf, unread. So, I'm going to read it and then release it.

Finally got around to reading this, after putting it up on the "Make Me Read It" Relay! ::grin::

An enjoyable read - it kept me turning pages past my bedtime. A courtroom drama about a woman who kidnaps her daughter from the grandparents who have custody . . . the grandfather comes to attorney Paul Madriani for help in retrieving his granddaughter. I don't imagine it's much of a spoiler to say that someone involved with the kidnapping turns up dead (most courtroom dramas do center around a murder trial, after all ::grin::), and Madriani has to solve the case and save his client from a guilty verdict. There were some interesting twists and turns, and the author laid his clues pretty well - I'd suspected the real killer early on, but then started to second-guess myself as the book went on. There were times, though, when I found the writing style distracting; it was written in the first person, but occassionally seemed to shift to someone else's PoV for short periods. Or maybe that was my imagination. I found the ending a bit anti-climactic.

It's now on it's way to reddragonlady. Enjoy! :-)

I also had a problem with the voice of the story. To me, it was the 1st person-present tense that bothered me. Like he's telling it as it happens and includes was too many details. Things like whether or not he locked the door of the jeep. It just wasn't neccisary.
As a story, it was all right, just not note-worthy.
I am going to be moving across the country in a few weeks, and plan on releasing this and several other books along the way.

Didn't have internet access during the drive, so was journaled before I could make release notes. This was left at the Ogallala Nebraska East Bound rest stop on Sept 12th. Glad to know that the finder joined Bookcrossing! Welcome!

This is such a cool idea! I found this book at the welcome center in Nebraska on my way east from Las Vegas, Nevada. I haven't had a chance to start reading this book yet, but look forward to doing so and letting it go wild again.
