This was a really good read. It kept me interested from start to finish and was a rollercoaster read the entire time.

Upon reading about the author, Rachel Dylan, it helps me understand how she can write with so much knowledge in a legal realm. She practiced law for over a decade! The great thing about this, is that she was able to write this story in a manner in which I didn’t feel lost or over my head. The story was enthralling.

Basically Mia Shaw is a lawyer and her best friend, a male colleague was murdered. She wants to do her best to make sure the guy they caught is put behind bars forever, however there are circumstances that may be pointing a different direction.

All in all, great read. This book has made me want to read the rest of the books in the Atlanta Justice series. Even more interesting, is that living so close to Atlanta, I was able to relate to some of the landscape details she provided.

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy through NetGalley.

Monday’s not here, and I’m already dreading it…

and I don’t really know why. Work really isn’t that bad. It’s funny though, when people hear I work for a newspaper, they always assume that we are one step in the grave. I can tell you now at our paper we are actually doing quite well. We haven’t had any raises lately, but neither have any of us lost our jobs. I guess that is something to be thankful for in today’s economy. But that said, working at the newspaper isn’t all that bad, although a pay raise at some point would really be a blessing.

I’m not a writer, well, let me rephrase here. I’m not a journalist. Once upon a time I thought I wanted to be one, but after having my work critiqued and after making a D on news release assignments, I decided to think of a different path for my career, and I settled on social work. Anyway, while I was stuck in social work I turned to writing, mainly fan fiction, to escape from my ever boring life. ┬áThat was when I realized, I really like creative writing. But at some point, after a trip to Europe, I decided it was time to do something different. Initially thought of giving journalism a try, until my dad suggested graphic design. Why I opted to go in that direction, I’m still not really sure. I’m not the best at drawing, in fact, have a phobia with drawing thanks to a college professor who was extremely nit-picky! But in the end, I love my job.

So why write a blog? I’m not really sure. I think it is my way of doing perhaps an online journal, which I can read later. In boxes upstairs, I have journals and diaries from 8th grade up until three years after graduation. For some reason I quit. As of late, I’m been a bit addicted to instant wins and sweepstakes, and have decided I need to step away from that. Getting a bit too obsessive with it. So, I’m going to write instead.

Tomorrow, it may be about work. That should be interesting! That day in the life of a graphic designer at a newspaper. Hmmm. Maybe I will.
