I won a copy of this from Goodreads but had read the first look on Bookishfirst.

This was a legal crime thriller about a woman lawyer that gets contacted by someone from her past looking for legal representation after being accused of killing his wife. Reluctantly, this incident leads her on a rollercoaster ride of emotions through investigation of the case as well as some personal realizations. There is lots of drama in the connections between families, sex parties, and blackmail. It definitely kept me guessing because once you think you know who the murder is, you find out it might be someone else.

I liked the characters and the relationships real and fake between them. The legal part I'm not sure how realistic it is, but it definitely keeps it interesting. The ending is well wrapped up and extremely satisfying. I recommend reading.
