    One thought on “Dark Moon”

    1. I couldn t stop reading this even to sleep Top notch attorney Sarah Knight now lives in San Diego having moved from New York She says it is to avoid cold winters but it is obvious that there is much to it than that I admit I don t much like Sarah She is a drunk a good bit of the time and has sexual affairs with married men then lies to and threatens their wives when caught So she is, to me, a slutty drunk She is assigned a case to defend Alexa Reed, a top attorney until she made the mistake of [...]

    2. Not even remotely believableEven the cute Q A about domestic violence at the end isn t credible The whole book screams layman s bias.It s as if the author took every perverted twist from 2000 DV cases, threw in an entire huge city s criminal AND family courts, AND an entire state s bar association, AND all mental health evaluators for the courts to do what exactly Oh, that s right to punish one woman for supposedly murdering her husband, the psychopath son of a psychotic US SUPREME COURT JUSTICE [...]

    3. A haunted and scar faced beauty is searching for redemption when she is handed a lawyer s most challenging murder case The reader gets no hint until the end why the beautiful lawyer needs to free her client to gain the redemption I prefer Scott Pratt s books , but this author does pull a reader in quickly.Her short chapters keep the pages flowing with great plot hints The romance is touching without any X rated scenes which can be refreshing these days Don t read the last chapter first It s wort [...]

    4. Great legal thrillerLoved this book and couldn t read it fast enough Loved the surprise ending, didn t see it coming.When Sarah Knight moves from New York to San Diego to start her legal career again, she is assigned to a case to defend Alexa Reed, the daughter in law, of a Supreme Court judge, she is met with corruption of the legal system from day one Alexa is accused of killing her husband, the son of the judge Everyone is trying to convince Sarah to leave the case alone Lucky for her she mee [...]

    5. Good, but a bit beyond beliefIt had enough intensity and intrigue to be interesting The unbelievable aspects were that the almost entire legal system in a city the size of San Diego was completely dominated by one man, even a Supreme Court judge in Washington D.C not some one just across the near by border

    6. Since the days of Perry Mason, the most popular type of legal thriller has been the seemingly hopeless case variety in which the attorney for a criminal defendant tries to win a case in which all the cards are stacked against the client Deborah Hawkins Dark Moon follows that formula, both in the plotting and in the writing Plotwise, attorney Sarah Knight s client seems certain to be convicted of the murders of her ex husband and a psychologist And, in terms of writing, author Hawkins book seems [...]

    7. Ridiculous Conclusion s Tacked Onto A Series of Reality Challenged SituationsOn the positive side, the writing style was fairly engaging the 3 main good guy characters were likeable, invoking the reader s interest in wanting a happy ending for all And the book did deliver such a resolution, with several surprise punches However, in arriving there , the reader is asked to buy into what become a few several too many reality stretches At first, caught up in the storyline, you don t really notice th [...]

    8. Oh my I wasn t even half way through the first chapter before I began to think What a stilted conversation this is The author seemed to be trying to use conversation between two strangers to fill us in on everything under the sun We have the main characters whole back story in a nutshell and the major plot line all wrapped up in a bow Then the strangers move forward as work partners like they know each other so well and she has to keep herself from falling for him to the point where she continue [...]

    9. My rating is accurately a 3.5 This is a quick read and a true page turner I enjoy legal thrillers and this was one worth reading I thought the characters were fairly well developed and while the plot seemed to have separate themes all converge at the end it was interesting to explore our judicial system and the effects of domestic violence in society I d recommend it

    10. I don t read a lot of courtroom type books, because I don t follow a lot of the laws they have to work with But, Deborah Hawkins spelled things out pretty well, and I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it as well as I did.The judge, DA, and Supreme Court Justice Coleman Reed make Sarah jump through a lot of hoops But she is one determined lady.Another big recommendation for this one.

    11. It was readable, but I got really annoyed at all the love bits Too many emotional turmoils going on It got confusing as to whether it was a murder mystery, court room drama or a romantic novel sometimes I think the writer should have stuck with one genre and not tried to fit so much into the one.

    12.
