Pacific Coast Justice Series
SUMMARY: After solving the mayor's murder and exposing corruption among the top brass in Las Playas, Carly Edwards is happy to be back on patrol with her partner, Joe, putting bad buys behind bars. For once, everything in life seems to be going right.
But then everything starts going wrong. Slow to recover from an injury, her ex-husband, Nick, begins pulling away just as they were starting to get close again. Meanwhile, when Joe's wife lands in the hospital with a mysterious illness, their baby is kidnapped. As Carly chases down every lead in a desperate search to find the baby, her newfound faith is pushed to its limits.
REVIEW: Carly is a strong woman whose Christian faith is new when she is confronted by problem after problem. She doesn't let her circumstances get her down and tries to do the right thing, even when it is not popular. Andrea, Carly's best friend and roommate, does not agree with her belief in God but starts to become more open to the idea after some rough circumstances occur in her own life. I really like how the kidnapping incident ends and where Carly and Nick's relationship ends up. This book is a great follow-up to Accused, this first book in the Pacific Coast Justice series. I really enjoyed getting to follow these characters through this recent publication and can't wait to read more. The third and last book of this series, Avenged, is due out in April 2013 and I can't wait to see what happens next and how the series will end. If it is anything like the other two, it will be a great read.
