    There are a lot of things about this book I really liked. Good writing, interesting plot, good pace, strong characters; there is a lot to love. I really enjoyed the dynamic of the law that you need in this kind of thriller paired with the social dimensions of race and relationships. Ov...

    I'm on a quest to read books by diverse authors this year because authors of color are underrepresented in my reading history. Got to even things up a bit. This mystery by Pamela Samuels Young was a lot of fun. It's a courtroom drama following the trial of the main suspect from prep...

    I really enjoyed this book. The story really flowed well. I enjoyed the behind the scene glimpse of how defense attorneys prepare a case from beginning to end. Especially, when their not sure of their clients innocence. I enjoyed how the pieces of the case unfolded, as if the reader wa...

    I rarely give five stars but this was an excellent read. A mix of suspense, drama and crime. I loved it. Def gonna jump into this series. ...

    Wow. I haven'd read a good legal thriller since the Client, and this was everything. It was fast paced, always kept my interest and it wasn't so bogged down with legal jargon that it was hard to follow. Vernetta was funny, witty, and strong and I enjoyed her POV. Her husband, Jefferson...

    Max Montgomery is a serial cheater and one night someone decides to take him out of his misery. His wife Tina, is the number one suspect and hires a prestigious law firm to defend her. Vernetta Henderson just won the biggest case of her career (alongside someone she really didn't c...

    This book definitely suffered from having too many plot lines. I would love to have read more about the investigation of the murder rather than being distracted by Vernetta's problems with her husband. The story line involving Neddy's husband hovered around the edges of the murder inve...

    Another great book by Pamela Samuels Young. After winning a big profiled case, Vernetta wants nothing more then to spend time with her husband Jefferson. But when a Max Montgomery is found dead in a hotel room and his wife becomes prime suspect, Vernetta is once again being launche...

    Great read ...

    (4.25 stars actually) Employment attorney and new associate Vernetta Henderson has just won a huge, high-profile discrimination suit on behalf of the legal firm she works for when another high profile, career defining case is dangled in front of her. The new case has socialite Tina ...

    Guilty or Not Guilty? Vernetta Henderson yearns to break through the cycle and become the first African-American partner at one of L.A.'s top notch firms. After years of being an employment attorney, Vernetta soon becomes part of the "dream team," a three star African-American cast f...

    Pamela Samuels Young takes the reader into the courtroom, investigation-interrogation process, as if I am in a Law and Order episode live in reading review. There are several scenes and stories unravel with the characters. Moreover, she is a brilliant writer if you love legal thrillers...

    Every Reasonable Doubt is a well written, compelling story of a Black female attorney who is struggling to balance her ambition and her personal life. Along the way she must deal with ambivalence about starting a family before making partner in her firm, rivalry within the firm where s...

    I thought this was a good introduction to Venetta Henderson & the series. Although she specialized in Employment Law, she was unexpectedly placed on a criminal case with a fellow attorney. The storyline held my interest as she learned the ropes while attempting to deal with other s...

    GOOD mystery suspense...and Vernetta and Special are too funny...lol ...

    RC Bray, a white man, did an AMAZING job of all the African American characters. At first I couldn't believe the choice, since so many characters are African American women! But he did it! My favorite character was Vernetta's friend, Special. I also adore her husband, whom I picture as...

    I'm on a quest to read books by diverse authors this year because authors of color are underrepresented in my reading history. Got to even things up a bit. This mystery by Pamela Samuels Young was a lot of fun. It's a courtroom drama following the trial of the main suspect from prep...

    I really enjoyed this book. The story really flowed well. I enjoyed the behind the scene glimpse of how defense attorneys prepare a case from beginning to end. Especially, when their not sure of their clients innocence. I enjoyed how the pieces of the case unfolded, as if the reader wa...

    I rarely give five stars but this was an excellent read. A mix of suspense, drama and crime. I loved it. Def gonna jump into this series. ...

    Wow. I haven'd read a good legal thriller since the Client, and this was everything. It was fast paced, always kept my interest and it wasn't so bogged down with legal jargon that it was hard to follow. Vernetta was funny, witty, and strong and I enjoyed her POV. Her husband, Jefferson...

    Max Montgomery is a serial cheater and one night someone decides to take him out of his misery. His wife Tina, is the number one suspect and hires a prestigious law firm to defend her. Vernetta Henderson just won the biggest case of her career (alongside someone she really didn't c...

    This book definitely suffered from having too many plot lines. I would love to have read more about the investigation of the murder rather than being distracted by Vernetta's problems with her husband. The story line involving Neddy's husband hovered around the edges of the murder inve...

    Another great book by Pamela Samuels Young. After winning a big profiled case, Vernetta wants nothing more then to spend time with her husband Jefferson. But when a Max Montgomery is found dead in a hotel room and his wife becomes prime suspect, Vernetta is once again being launche...

    I thought this was a good introduction to Venetta Henderson & the series. Although she specialized in Employment Law, she was unexpectedly placed on a criminal case with a fellow attorney. The storyline held my interest as she learned the ropes while attempting to deal with other s...

    GOOD mystery suspense...and Vernetta and Special are too funny...lol ...

    I thought for sure that Special had something going in with Jefferson. I kept waiting for it, and waiting for it. Guess I was wrong. ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It's the first book I've read - perhaps since I read 'Born A Crime', that I've been truly hooked to. I can explain how amazing it was to read about a black woman already at a good place in her career, aiming yet for bigger things, that ambition especiall...

    True Mystery Thrilee I love mysteries and this one is a true doozy. I've read many mysteries that had great creative plot twists but this novel had plot surprises. I was really torn about wanting to believe that Tina did t do it to there was no other plausible answer as to who dunni...

    RC Bray, a white man, did an AMAZING job of all the African American characters. At first I couldn't believe the choice, since so many characters are African American women! But he did it! My favorite character was Vernetta's friend, Special. I also adore her husband, whom I picture as...

    Perfect Novel I loved it. It was a little predictable but an awesome read from an amazing author. This is the 4th book I have read by Pamela ...
