Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman

Imperfect Justice (Hidden Justice #2)Book Description:
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:
This was a really good one.  Domestic violence is too prevalent and hard to write about but this author does a great job with it.  It is a completely believable story, and that is what makes such an impact.  Most of us know someone, maybe not in this exact situation, but in a similar enough one that they come to mind when reading this.  I thought the author just really did a fabulous job with the story.
The whole cast of characters are people you think you might very well meet walking down the street.  Reid is a strong brother/uncle who loves his family and is willing to do what it takes to keep what is left of them safe.  Emilie is such a strong, smart woman.  She is a character that I wanted to get to know and root for through the entire book.  I literally despised one character throughout the book and so wanted them to go down!  
It was a 5/5 for me.  The strong feelings I got from reading the book just got me!

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
