Ooh this is another actual physical book I read! This one was even better than the other one. Sarah Morgan is the main character. She’s a successful partner at a law firm at 33. She’s also beautiful and rich and smart with a handsome and loving husband. He’s a writer and he spends most of his time at their cabin in the woods. Sarah bought it as a vacation house for the two of them, but he spends most of his time there alone. Or so she thinks.
Sarah gets a call one morning that Adam (her husband) was arrested for the murder of a woman named Kelly. She’s blindsided, but decides she’ll stand up for her husband, take his case, and defend him for the murder of his mistress. Adam does a bunch of stupid things along the way, and ends up getting his bail revoked and having to stay in jail. Sarah is tirelessly defending him while her job suffers.
It’s hard to write much about this book without spoiling. Adam doesn’t actually know for certain that he didn’t kill Kelly, because he was drunk the night of her murder and left the cabin to go back home in the middle of the night. He thought she was alive when he left her. There’s a scary ex-husband thrown in as a potential red herring too. I fully went along for the ride with this one. It’s another book where the ending was really satisfying to me. I’m not sure what that says about me though!
