The police say the woman was a murderer. Emilie Wesley knows they can't be talking about her client . . . can they?
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:
Imperfect Justice is the second book in Putman's Hidden Justice series.  The first was Beyond Justice.  I appreciate the spotlight Putman put on domestic violence in this story.  While parts of the book lagged a little bit for me and the male protagonist (Reid) was a little bland, Putman gave readers insight into what it is really like to work with women who find themselves in sometimes impossible and very scary situations.  The story contained some twists and turns I didn't see coming.  Putman's insight into the courtroom and legal proceedings were well portrayed.  The third book, Delayed Justice, will be out September 2018.

Happy Reading,
