    I loved this book because of the relationships and faith woven throughout the story of a fight for justice for a man whose patent has been infringed upon. Andy and Courtney, the children of David and Nan Cobb, were the stars in my opinion. They were well-behaved, smart, and strong in their young faith. They loved their family, especially their grandfather. When he suffered a medical emergency and ended up in the hospital, they were his two staunchest prayer warriors. The author frequently brings them into the story to add some interesting dialogue and action. I enjoyed the way the family worked together, even when there were significant differences of opinion. David and his father were small-town lawyers, while the younger son's wife was a lawyer with a major firm in Washington, DC. One of the most interesting aspects of the story was the way David relied strongly on his faith when dealing with clients. I am involved in a study currently about knowing and doing God's will. A huge emphasis is placed on immediate obedience. This story so aptly demonstrates that concept. Some may question if that is real life. I would say many people who profess to be believers fail to practice that but the story helps to bring things into perspective as first one and then another begins to act in obedience to their faith. You will have to read the book to see if justice is served. You will find it difficult to put down.

    Relative Justice, by Robert Whitlow, is a contemporary Christian legal story that focusses on the Cobb families. David and his father have a law office in a small town in North Carolina. When a legal matter comes that they are not prepared to handle David; contacts his brother's wife, an attorney in Washington D.C.

    This is a great story that has multiple situations going on at once. David is trying to help a family friend, his father becomes ill, and Katelyn is at a turning point in her career. I enjoyed the family dynamics, the care they have for each other and how they pull together in time of need. This is a heart warming family story that kept me reading to see what would happen. The is also mystery and suspense with Zeke's home remedies and what has happened with it.

    I voluntarily received a complimentary copy of this book. This is my honest opinion.

    "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, to search out a matter is the glory of kings." Proverbs 25:2

    The characters are what made me really, really enjoy this book. (I hope they come back again in another book.)

    The Cobb Family

    Carter, the family patriarch, whose life takes an unexpected twist but still has wisdom to add

    His youngest son, Robbie who has had a few second chances and finally gets what life is all about

    Katelyn, his wife, who is a brilliant lawyer and is also getting a chance to determine what her priorities are going to be

    Carter's oldest son, David, who has an interesting perspective on how to operate his law office

    Nan, his wife, who keeps her family going through service, sacrifice and prayer

    Their kids, Andy and Courtney, who definitely add their part to the story

    The ones with the case

    Zeke who wants his home remedies to help heal others

    Emerson who wants to continue to gamble and stay one step ahead of everyone

    Plus the extras who add their own part

    I would classify this book as Southern fiction with a legal element and a bit of suspense. Faith also plays a role. I think why I enjoy Whitlow's books so much is because they feel real. I feel like I am stepping into situations that could actually happen. Perhaps he is able to write in this fashion because he is an attorney himself. The plot does not feel forced or hurried.

    The readers get a glimpse into how law is put into practice. I found the behind-the-scenes details fascinating. The key case in this one involves determining whether a patent for a drug was violated. Evaluating a set of chemical compound combinations is complicated.

    I wanted to keep reading because I wanted to see how everything was resolved. But I also wanted to savor the book because the story was so enjoyable. I was not quite ready for it be over. Hence the reason why I hope there is another book written featuring the Cobb family!

    I was provided a copy of this book through NetGalley. I wanted to read and review it. All opinions are my own.

    I really enjoyed this book. The case presented was interesting and it captured my attention. I appreciated that unlike many legal thrillers, this book wasn't bogged down with an overabundance of legal facts and procedures. Rather the plot flowed smoothly and there was a perfect mix of family, personal drama and mystery surrounding the legal case.

    I also liked that it felt natural. The characters had doubts and flaws and faced challenges. It was encouraging seeing the them put their faith into action and I liked the message about continually turning to the Lord in prayer.

    I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

    In this current culture of suing and counter-suing, it was a great read from an attorney's point of view and how to establish God's boundaries and accountability.
