Michaels’ latest is a blend of legal melodrama and contemporary fiction that’s bound to surprise readers with its unpredictable ending. Despite the crafty resolution, however, some readers may struggle to get there. Much of this novel is repetitive, dedicated to how the innocent, orphaned Sophie adjusts to being a rich, free woman. The plot is a little too far-fetched to take completely seriously, but some readers, especially fans of Michaels, may find it entertaining. This novel may be enjoyable for some who enjoy legal drama, but is definitely not a must-read.
