A CASE FOR LOVE
Falling in love with your lawyer isn't all bad...unless he's the son of the people you're suing.
The Alaine Delacroix that all of Bonneterre knows is the carefully polished image she puts forth every day on her noontime news magazine program. When her parents' home and small business are threatened by the biggest corporation in town, Alaine is forced to choose between her image and fighting for the life her family has built.
Lawyer Forbes Guidry is used to making things go his way. But when he's asked to take on a pro bono case for a colleague he'll learn that he can't control everything -- including his feelings for his new client : Alaine Delacroix.
Alaine's only option to help her family is hiring Forbes, but can she bring herself to trust the handsome, disarmingly charming lawyer? And will Forbes Guidry be able to make a case for love before losing his job and family? Can both trust that God will present a solution before all is lost?
KAYE'S ATTENTION TO SIMPLE DETAILS BROUGHT ME THE TASTE AND FEEL OF LOUISIANA. I ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE I'VE VISITED THERE A TIME OR TWO. I LOVE BEING TRANSPORTED TO NEW PLACES THROUGH THE PAGES OF FICTION!
THIS IS MORE THAN A LOVE STORY -- THOUGH I APPRECIATED FORBES' SWIFT 'FALL INTO LOVE'. HIS RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF ALAINE WAS DEFINITELY SWOONWORTHY BUT THE LEGAL CASE THEY ARE EMBROILED IN HAD ME TURNING PAGES AT AN ALARMING SPEED.
I LOVED THE CHARACTER GROWTH IN BOTH FORBES AND ALAINE AND HOW IT PARALLELED EACH OTHER. THEY BOTH TOOK CAREER MOVES THEY HADN'T PLANNED ON -- COULDN'T HAVE EVEN DREAMED OF AT THE BEGINNING OF THE BOOK -- BUT THEIR INDIVIDUAL JOURNEYS WERE BOTH BELIEVABLE AND INSPIRING.
