This novel had a great plot that kept me hooked. I didn’t realize that it was book 3 in the series. I never felt lost, so it can be read as a standalone. I prefer tighter endings and thought that maybe the loose threads would be addressed in the next book. That’s when I found out it was third in the series, lol. It’s still worth the read, but I must say it has some mature content. I was given the audiobook by the author but was not required to provide a good review. I thought the narrator did an excellent job. I rate it a 4-star.
Set in the conference rooms of a white-shoe Houston law firm and the stunning coastline of Baja California, Belinda is the story of a woman’s bravery and resourcefulness at the end of her brilliant career. Her decision to fight her firm’s men in suits who demand her retirement is called into question when a man once her lover appears after a long unexplained absence.
Against a backdrop of romance and legal drama, the novel explores questions about love, the law, and the anxious precipice of life change. Is it ever too late to be swept away by romance? Can true justice ever be attained when the law’s practitioners are corrupt? And when your work is what defines you, what’s left after retirement?
During a week of surprises and abstruse events, Belinda sees the once presumed greatness of her life flicker as she forces the moment for her decision to a crisis.
