Justice by Karen Robards (thoughts)

Justice begins with a woman dying, two young runaways being the only witnesses, and an unexpected conclusion to a rape trial. Jess is a young, hard-working lawyer that is moving up in the ranks of the law firm where she works as she has just won a high profile case. But instead of celebrating Jess is trying to figure out why the prosecution's main witness recanted her story on the stand. With the help of her ex-boyfriend, Mark Ryan, Jess begins to investigate more into the case that she has just won. But then an attack is made on her life and it is time to figure out who is trying to kill her and why....could it be from the past that she is still trying to hide from??

This is what romantic suspense is supposed to be! From the very beginning, I was pulled into the story and the characters' lives. I liked that the two main characters, Jess and Mark, had a history with each other but each of them thought that their past relationship was completely over. It had me interested from the very beginning to see how everything would work out between them. The mystery aspect of the story was really good and helped to pull me into the book. I liked that the author was able to tie the storyline from Jess' past into the storyline with her current case. It really made me wonder who was out to kill her and kept me on my toes. The suspense kept me reading this book late into the night and I just didn't want to set it down. And I didn't see the ending coming from a mile away...I was totally surprised. All of this added up to a very enjoyable read for me and I'm looking forward to reading more by this author. Recommended to fans of romantic suspense and romance in general.

Bottom Line: A fun read that kept me guessing the entire time!

Disclosure: This book was sent to me for review as part of a blog tour hosted by Gallery & Pocket Blog Tours. Thanks!
