A series of unbelievable coincidences draw the reader away from Moser's overall decent plot about a trial and its effects on the jury members. The characters and their transformations are intriguing, but the unrealistic plot twists make this story difficult to swallow.
Patti McCoy is on trial for murdering her married boyfriend. The jury includes Deidre, who is married to a well-known doctor and hiding a host of secrets; Abigail, an aging actress; and Ken, a washed-up golf pro trying to ignore his past. Each has something to hide that will color their view of the trial. Can justice be served? (TYNDALE, Jan., 329 pp., $12.99)
