An Innocent Client #BookReview

Send to Kindle

4-Stars

I found An Innocent Client while browsing for something to read from the new Kindle Unlimited program. The premise looked interesting so I thought I would give it a shot. I have to say that I really enjoyed the story.

Joe is a defense attorney that desperately wants to get out of his profession and move on to something that he can feel proud of. He decides to take on one last case before he retires, and the case turns out to be more than he expected.

Throughout the novel, Joe has to deal with twists and turns that come from several of his clients and current situations. I liked the different separate plots that kept the story interesting and moving throughout the entire novel.

The book was well written and the story arc was well conceived. It was a little easy to see what was coming, though that could just be my fourteen years in law enforcement allowing me to come to logical conclusions about where the story was headed. Even though I guessed the outcome about two-thirds of the way through, I was still very attached to the story and eager to read on.

I had a hard time deciding whether to give the story 4 or 5 stars. There were a few editing errors but I wouldn’t dock a whole star for editing issues unless they were rampant throughout the novel. I think in the end it came down to the characters. They were all well written but I disliked almost all of them. I know that most of them weren’t written to be liked, but for me, too many of them were unlikable and that turned me off a little. If every time a character comes into the scene, you think, “Crap. What’s this jerk gonna do now?”, it gets in the way of your overall enjoyment of the otherwise great story.

In the end, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys law-based stories. There isn’t much detective work or procedural stuff going on in the book, so if that’s what you’re looking for, this isn’t the story for you. Look for it on Kindle Unlimited and remember that even if you don’t find the book to your liking, you should read past the 10% mark so the author can get his royalties from Amazon. Though I don’t think that will be a problem with this book, it’s worth reading the entire thing. Personally, I’m looking forward to reading the other books in this series.

 

P.S.

My book are professionally edited but my reviews and other posts aren’t 🙂
