  • Is it to help or for the money?

    Have you ever had a moment where right versus wrong lost its black-and-white contrast? - Caroline What an incredible story! If I could give it more than 5 stars, I certainly would! The author takes the lawyer into the field of biomedical research and puts you, the reader, on the edge of your seat wondering what on earth could happen next... Praecursoria is a research company that offers terrible hope to those who have none, that proverbial Hail Mary, for those that have no other choice medically speaking. Caroline is the lawyer tasked with keeping everything legal, working with the FDA, filing patents, etc. But when people start dying, files are missing, and threats are made she begins to wonder if she is helping at all. What is the impetus behind all this - helping people or making money?? Brandon is a former football star whose sole aim is to keep sibling groups together when they enter the foster system, hoping to find them a forever home together. Will Almost Home survive the endless changes the government is making or will these children lose contact with their siblings just like so many have? An ARC of this legal thriller was received through Thomas Nelson, HarperCollins Christian Publishing and CelebrateLit. The impressions and comments are my own and were in no way solicited.

  • today's headlines

    I would guess a great deal of research went into this book with how a drug or medical procedure goes through the process of being approved through the FDA, all the testing and trials. Attorney Caroline Bragg is hired to make sure the company has all its legal ducks in a row for a new method of curing cancer that is coming out. Her friend Brandon Lancaster is pulled into the new company when he tries to help a foster child dying of cancer. This is definitely a legal thriller, with threats coming at Caroline from every direction and not knowing who she can trust. Full of suspense, fast paced action and a touch of romance. The reader will get a peek into the pharmaceutical world, the legal world and the foster care system.

  • Ethical Dilemmas

    Ethical dilemmas abound in the latest novel by Cara Putman! This is only the second book I've read by this author but I'm already hooked! Her characters are so realistic and she puts them in situations that are sometimes so difficult to navigate but yet, realistic so you can't help but root for them to get out of their trouble! Caroline is a lawyer who loses her job when the judge she works for dies, but finds a new one working for a new medical research company on the cutting edge for leukemia. However, is everything on the up and up? People at the company keep dying in mysterious circumstances and she's discovering conflicting information! Then, there's her boyfriend, Brandon, who is having difficulties of his own as his foster home is possibly going to be shutdown and he's scrambling to come up with solutions. I loved Caroline and Brandon together. They had both had tragic childhood but had risen above them. However, parts of that were still with them and they were trying to overcome them. There was a lot of action and you had to figure out who the "bad guy" was! I also loved the foster kids! It tugged at the heartstrings - you wanted to help them all! I definitely loved this book!

  • Intense legal/medical suspense

    In this continuation of The Hidden Justice series, Caroline finally gets her story while the reader also gets to catch up with Hayden, Emilie, Jaime, and Savannah from the previous books. It can definitely be read as a stand alone, though becoming acquainted with Caroline's tightly-knit circle of friends prior to reading this book will increase the reader's appreciation. The plot moves at a good pace and is infused with cutting edge medical technology which becomes the basis for the suspense. Caroline is a newly hired counsel for a medical research company and the reader learns about the fascinating world of patent law, FDA approval, and research protocols along with Caroline. Brandon is a former pro-football player running a group foster home specifically for siblings. The book opens with Caroline and Brandon already in a serious relationship, which is sorely tested and tried when one of Brandon's foster children becomes a subject in her company's trial. Things unravel quickly for both of them professionally and personally as the child gets sicker, Brandon's program is threatened by new laws, Caroline's days are filled with confusion, and several people tied to the research are targeted. There are glimpses into the villain's thoughts which add an interesting layer to the plot. The ending didn't tie up all loose ends, but felt realistic. If you are a fan of legal suspense with a dose of romance, you will definitely enjoy this book. I received a copy of the book from Thomas Nelson via Celebrate Lit Tours and was under no obligation to post a positive review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.

  • Cutting edge excitement

    This was a totally different ride I took with this novel. It contained not only legal content but also cutting edge science. I admit I didn’t understand the cell concept and what this company was doing to help leukemia patients but it kept me glued to the pages. What a great movie this would make! The descriptions were written so well that I pictured myself there with the characters. Brandon was a former professional football player and Caroline was a lawyer. They both suffered from bad childhood experiences which gave them that in common and so much more. Caroline had just been hired to work with a company in the throes of a discovery that could change the lives of so many for the better. Brandon had established a group home setting that worked to keep brothers and sisters together in the foster care system. He had been separated from his brother growing up and still didn’t know where he was or what had happened to him. His passion was real and his heart was for the kids in his care. They were both interested in moving their relationship along but their work kept them apart so much of the time. There was something not right at the company Caroline had been hired into but she couldn’t put her finger right on it. She couldn’t share with Brandon because he was a investor. Getting to the bottom of it all was exciting and kept me interested the whole way through. My heart went out to the characters and I enjoyed getting to know them. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, find a relaxing chair to sit in and get ready for a great story in this novel. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher but was not required to write a review, all opinions are my own.
