DELAYED JUSTICE by Cara Putman | Book Review

STORY | After years of hiding the truth, Jaime Nicholas is finally strong enough. With a law degree to her name, and a passion for justice as a criminal defense attorney, Jaime is ready face the demons of what happened to her as a child. The one glitch in her one-track plan is the arrival of Chandler Bolton.

A retired veteran, Chandler along with his therapy dog, Aslan helps those who aren’t quite brave enough to stand up by themselves. When their personal and professional platforms meet, Chandler sees they both share the same need and quest to help others, and in Jaime he sees a woman who he admires. But with her broken past, will Jaime be able to look to the future?Delayed Justice

REVIEW | Even when books enter my reader sphere of curiosity, so much of the time, new releases catch my attention and distract me. Delayed Justice is one of the older works of fiction that I did want to read, but hadn’t made time for. The “bigger” approach to this story (the third of four) is interesting and full of conflicts, but is nonetheless entertaining to read.

The interesting part is the group of women who work in the same field; all fighting their own wheel of justice, and even battling some personal daemons. The conflict is in the obstacles these characters face in that quest. For Jaime, her conflict is contained within herself, and externally as she stands up and speaks out against the terrible acts she had to endure. Though she hasn’t come out the other side with complete healing, the story is inspiring because of her strength.

Cara Putman’s novels (at least this series) tend to be more about mental pulse-racing than physical. This novel is character driven piece about forgiveness; and features a good deal of conversation to solve the case in a mental capacity over physical foot or car chases. In this way, it reminds me of a Jack Reacher (film) story or a British TV show that usually abides by a slower pace.

As someone who likes this group of characters, reading another of these novels is always a pleasure. Jaime’s story follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, and reminds us that sometimes what we have to do (doing the right thing) isn’t always the easy path.
