Book Review - Pacific Coast Justice Series
Book 1, "Accused," will pull you right into the midst of action and have you reading page after page as it is high-energy, full of drama - both on the job and in the character's personal lives, and real-life action. Carly is not pleased with having to work in the juvenile department; however one case really tugs at her heart and Carly puts her all into finding the answers. Nick is determined to show Carly that he is a changed man, and is on her side both professionally and personally. However, there are past hurts and Carly is not sure whom she can trust; will she follow her heart and will that be enough or will it ultimately place her in further danger?
Carly and Nick are both characters whom I found myself rooting for throughout the book. They were very "real" and Cantore has done a great job with creating and developing her characters in the series. I found this book to be very easy to read and follow and it kept me wondering and guessing all the way throughout; therefore my attention was held and I wanted to keep on reading! This is an excellent start to the series and a must-read in order series as well! You do not want to miss out on the drama!
Things are looking up for Carly, she is back to her normal job with her regular partner and she is getting along with her ex-husband. Suddenly, things take a turn for the worse and Carly is thrust back into danger, confusion and questioning her faith. Carly is trying to track down a missing baby and stumbles upon some other discoveries while also dealing with things in her personal life at the same time.
The drama and suspense continues in this series! I could not stop reading once I started! Carly is such a well-developed character and she is really tested in her faith in God and yet she does turn to Him and seek Him in the midst of trials. There is a lot going on in this book, many issues are at play all at once, making this a page-turner and a read you will not want to miss out on!
I am looking forward to book 3 (and the last) of the series coming out next year - I am looking forward to reading the conclusion of the series and spending one last book with these characters!
