I never read the reviews until after I've read the book. But, I'm only on Chapter 5 and there are inconsistencies. I wish authors & editors would check their books before they go to print. I just hope I can finish this book.
Injustice For All tells the parallel stories of Remington Wyatt, who is on the run, and Rafe Baxter, an FBI Agent looking to please his new boss by solving a cold case ... the one involving Remington. Remington disappears and 'Bella' appears in a new town, with a new identity. For three years she's successfully evaded the FBI and the crooks who murdered her godfather. She's always ready to run at the drop of a hat, but eventually she decided to take a stand.
I personally found a few things that bothered me in the book, not the least of which was the main character's consistent use of oh-my-stars. That came to be drive-me-crazy pretty quick. I found how quickly Remington/Bella and her love interest fell in love to be quite a stretch, and the fact that she stayed living alone in her isolated home after multiple attempts on her life didn't seem too likely either.
Despite these things, I would definitely read the next book in the series. Robin Caroll's books rarely disappoint.
I received this ebook from B&H Publishing for an honest review. My opinion is my own. Thank you B&H.
Rafe Baxter is an FBI agent who transfers to a new office. As the newbie, he is told to look over unsolved cases. One catches his eye that sends him on a journey to Hopewell, Louisiana where things aren't as they seem. Loved the mystery, loved the characters! I will definitely read more in this series and more by Robin Caroll.
In this latest book by Robin Caroll you will find all the necessary factors for a top notch thriller. Of course you have murder, along with betrayal, and lots and lots of nail-biting suspense.
Remington Wyatt is a well known psychologist, who freelances for the FBI. Remington as a child lost both mom and dad, and was raised by her dad's law partner, Daniel Tate, now a federal judge. The night that forever changed Remington's life was when she walked in Daniel's house only to witness his murder. Seeing who the murderers were sent cold chills over Remington and she knew she had to forever leave her life behind and run or she would be the next one to die. That night Remington disappeared and Bella Miller was born.
Fast forward three years, FBI agent Rafe Baxter has volunteered to go to a new office in Louisiana. Not feeling very welcome he has decided he will make the best of it by trying to solve the three year old murder of a federal judge. After finding a piece of paper that was seemingly overlooked in the original investigation he asks permission from his SAC to go to Hopewell, Louisiana to find this person and see how he is involved.
Hayden Simpson, police commissioner of Hopewell, Louisiana is surprised as to why a FBI agent would want to talk to him about a federal judge's murder. He doesn't even know Daniel Tate and he certainly has no idea why they would think otherwise.
Bella Miller, photographer extraordinaire, has been living in Hopewell for close to three years, and has come to love this picturesque town and she especially loves her little house that backs up to the bayou. She came here looking for answers three years ago and hoping to hide from the terrible past she left behind. What she found was a wonderful friend in Hayden Simpson, whom she has come to love like a brother. When FBI Agent Rafe Baxter shows up and starts asking questions, she is sure her past has caught up with her. Will she be able to protect her identity and her heart from him? Will he be able to save her when her real enemies show up and try to silence her forever?
I had a wonderful time reading this book. It had me turning the pages late into the night; I just HAD to see what was coming next. Robin does a fine job keeping you on the edge of your seat. If you love suspense I know you will enjoy Injustice for All immensely, well done Robin!
I was given a copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
"Every muscle in my body stiffened, and my mouth went spitless. Chambering a round was a distinct sound, unmistakable."
Are you hooked? I was. These are the first two lines of this riveting, suspenseful novel called Injustice for All. It's the first book in the Justice Seekers series. Wow, what an amazing start. I'm thankful for the review copy that has introduced me to characters I instantly cared about and story that kept me up late reading.
My heart went out to the main character Remington Wyatt as she walked in on her godfather, Daniel's tragic situation. The men don't see her but she can hear every word they say as they plan his termination. She recognizes their voices. She can't believe this is happening - everything she's believed in crumbles right before her eyes!! These men were supposed to be good guys. She's got to run so she can stay alive long enough to seek justice for Daniel's murder.
Where do you hide when the system is corrupt and you don't know who the good guys are? Who do you trust? No one but yourself, of course and that's what Remington does.
At the same time Rafe Baxter confused about his relationship with God and where he's headed in life. Rafe accepted Christ as his Savior but struggles to believe he is truly forgiven for his past. He accepted God's unconditional love but is hung-up on being forgiven for past sin. He takes a new job so his partner can stay in the area to help with his daughters medical care. Rafe hopes that maybe this sacrifice would pay for his sins?
I enjoyed Hayden, a man who's trying to do the right thing, praying and staying grounded when his world is rocked apart. He try's to help his sister who's bi-polar, and a mom who is a worry-wart. He's so thankful God has brought him a friend to help, Bella, she's someone he can talk to and trust. I loved the banter between characters. They have fun with one another in a good way. This author has well timed humor mixed in with the suspense! Great blend.
Bella and Rafe talk about what their hobbies are, Rafe says to Bella, "I like walks and hikes_reading? Not so much!"
Bella's response, "How can you not love reading? It's wonderful. An excursion, an adventure_an escape from reality."
Bella adored reading and has a hard time grasping anyone not loving it. I could just hear Robin Caroll saying this to someone too! Bella is a passionate person with spunk I enjoyed reading about. Rafe is an FBI Agent trying to prove himself in a new office, so he picks a dead case to work on. Maybe he'd be the one to find the killer and make new friends.
This was one gripping novel from the start, and one I couldn't put down. I loved Robin's well timed humor mixed in with a believable spiritual thread. All this in the first book of the Justice Seekers series, I can't wait to read the rest!!
