A mother reenters her ex-husband and daughter's lives wanting custody of the child. Witnesses will state that the father is unfit to have the child. It is up to Jeremy Locke to prove these women wrong. Then murder happens and he has to keep his client from going to prison.
I enjoyed this story. It started slow but did get better as Jeremy started to investigate these women and the past of the ex-wife. The murder made it more interesting and I admit I never saw the ending coming. I suspected someone else the whole time.
I liked the domesticity shown with Jeremy's wife and her pregnancy. I also like her opposition to him taking the case. She was spunky but a lot like me on suspects.
I'd read more of this series.
