Told in a three part POV (father, daughter, mother) this procedural thriller is a fast-paced ride that will leave you guessing until the very end.
Stella Sandel has been charged with the murder of a man nearly twice her age. Her parents are adamant that there is no way she could possibly have anything to do with this, let alone even know the man. But Stella basically leads a double life that her parents have no clue about and the rumors about her involvement in this murder case put her father, a pastor, and her mother, a defense attorney under an unwanted spotlight. As they’re all backed into corners, questioned, and second-guessed, this story begs the question: Just how far would you go to protect your children?
If you’re looking for a page turner to read by the pool or beach this summer, definitely check this one out! If you’re into Law & Order and other procedural dramas, then you’ll love this one! If you’re intrigued by the inner workings and differences of the justice systems in other countries, then this one is for you, but be prepared to have questions and have to do a bit of research. I’m still a bit confused, but found it so interesting!
Thanks so much to Celadon Books for the ARC. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to reading more by this author. A Nearly Normal Family hits shelves Tuesday, June 25th!
