Another interesting book by Cai Emmons that held my interest better than Unleashed by crafting characters that are deep and interesting.
After living in Boston, Sybil White Brown returns to the small town she lived in long ago and hoped to never be in again and see the man she once loved. Now, she is called to jury duty and selected for a murder trial right with her ex-husband. She tries to keep her distance from him but the longer the trial goes, the closer they become trying to figure out the fate of the one they are sent to judge. Mixed feelings come out for Sybil as the jury deliberates and things become more and more heated.
Livid held my interest in a better way than Unleashed. These characters were engaging and the plot intriguing. I found myself engaged very quickly with what was going on and kept the pages turning. Sybil was a great female protagonist and the strained dynamic between her and her ex kept my attention. As the trial continued, the tension mounted and made the story that much better. I was pleased with this story and how it developed. Overall, it was an interesting story to enjoy for a weekend read. I recommend this book to those that enjoy legal thrillers with good characters.
I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
