Review of Imperfect Justice: Christian Suspense by Cara Putman

I like a good romantic suspense book. There’s something nice and dramatic about the hero who saves the heroine from death. Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman is suspense with a little romance and some legal thriller all rolled into one.

About the Book…


To the world it seems obvious: Kaylene Adams killed her daughter and then was shot by police. Attorney Emilie Wesley knows a different story: Kaylene would never hurt anyone and was looking for a way out of a controlling, abusive relationship. Her death shakes Emilie’s belief that she can make a difference for women in violent marriages. Self-doubt plagues her as she struggles to continue her work in the wake of the tragedy.

Reid Billings thought he knew his sister—right up until he learned how she died. He discovers a letter from Kaylene begging him to fight for custody of her daughters if anything should happen to her. No attorney in her right mind would support an uncle instead of the father in a custody case, but Kaylene’s letter claims Emilie Wesley will help him.

Thrown together in a race to save Kaylene’s surviving daughter, Emily and Reid pursue the constantly evasive truth. If they can hang on to hope together, can they save a young girl—and find a future for themselves in the process?

My Thoughts…

I really liked this one at first. The story was very interesting and unique in the way of suspense novels. The characters were likable, and the book was fast-paced. As the story wore on, however, I liked it a little less.
It became somewhat confusing. There were other plots going on parallel to the main plot. At first I thought at least two of these were going to be connected, but they weren’t. My other problem as the story wore on was that the main character began to sound somewhat whiny. There’s a fine line between making a character with real problems so that readers can relate and making the character be too vocal about her problems. This book edged too close to that line for me.
I will still give this one 3.5 stars. If you like Christian fiction suspense, it’s worth checking out. You can find the book on Amazon here.
