Delayed Justice, by Cara Putman, is the third book in the Hidden Justice series and follows her two previous books, Beyond Justice and Imperfect Justice. It tells the story of a woman abused as a child who is finally ready to seek justice.
Jaime Nichols was eight-years-old when her uncle began abusing her. Now a successful criminal defense attorney, she decides to press charges against him. When she discovers that her uncle is being considered as a one-star general, she realizes that the timing makes her case suddenly very public. Chandler Bolton works with veterans returning home from combat, helping them adjust. He also has a therapy dog, Aslan. When he and Jaime are called to assist a young girl who has been abused and needs support in and out of the courtroom, they begin to support each other as well. When both begin to experience dangerous situations, they seek protection in each other’s company.
I enjoyed this book. Its plot kept my attention from beginning to end. I loved the characters and could relate to them. I especially liked Jaime’s parents, who felt guilty but tried to be supportive when they found out what had happened. I also liked Jaime’s friends, who were a wonderful support system for her. Everyone should have such friends.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense novels.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
