GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5ObedienceApril 30, 2022GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.
Floraljoy5 Stars Out Of 5Loved itApril 30, 2022FloraljoyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.

GramsAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5RecommendedApril 14, 2022GramsAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Relative Justice moved at a much slower pace than most other Robert Whitlow legal fiction books that I have read, but it suited the story. While the first eighty-five percent of the story is slow and easy, the last fifteen percent will have you on pins and needles. Whitlow spent time developing his characters and their relationship with God, and most readers will be delighted with the result. There were a few details that did not seem quite realistic, but that did not detract from the story overly much. The theme of listening to and for the voice of God in both big and small things is well developed through attorney David Cobb's character as he interacts with others and as he handles a pharmaceutical patent infringement case along with his sister-in-law, attorney Katelyn Martin-Cobb.
I am grateful to have received a complimentary copy of Relative Justice from Thomas Nelson via NetGalley without obligation. All opinions expressed here are my own.
Mommaof54 Stars Out Of 5another solid legal thriller by Robert WhitlowApril 1, 2022Mommaof5Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I Really enjoyed this legal mystery by Robert Whitlow. He has the unique skill of weaving a great story that keeps you wondering amidst intrigue and legal challenges with great characters who draw you in with the deep human dimension of their own struggles and transformation. This one hits on some interesting matters of aging and relinquishing control as well as just what happens as families grow and mature and the struggles that adult siblings often encounter. A solid and enjoyable read.
