I really liked The Prosecutor by Adrienne Giordano. While I am a bit of a legal junkie when it comes to books, movies or TV shows, I thought this one exceptionally well done. Adrienne’s characters are witty, humorous and just down right likeable.
Zac,the leading man, is of course gorgeous, smart and has a ruthless streak when it comes to winning in court. However, as he takes on a case that seems like a slam dunk, the real plot begins when he meets first year law student Emma. The sparks fly in spite of the fact he is trying to uphold her brother’s guilty murder conviction. Throw into the mix, Penny, Zac’s sister who suddenly becomes the defendant’s lawyer, and you have the makings of a great intrigue.
I usually figure out the real killer early on in a book but in this case even I was surprised by the outcome. It lends itself to making this a real page turner. I just could not put it down. In addition to the mystery I kept reading because I so enjoyed the banter of the main characters. I like that Adrienne gave you insights into what they were thinking in a rather unique way and it often made me laugh to read their responses to what the other was feeling at the time. There is enough action to keep you engaged and just the right amount of romance to keep your heart committed to the end. Great job Adrienne! I look forward to your next book.
