Deadly Proof (Atlanta Justice Book #1) - Rachel Dylan

4.5 Stars!

In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.

Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower's allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.

Determined not to make the same mistakes, he's intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything--even murder--to keep the case from going to trial.

 Oh I was so glad when I found out the Rachel was putting out a new series! I am a big fan of Rachel's books. I have read many.

One of the things that I like about Rachel's books - they are clean and Christian based but not Bible thumping. I do like some books that are "preachy" they have their place, but not in my fiction. And, don't be fooled. Just because they have the "Christian fiction" label does not mean that they are lacking in suspense! This is probably one of Rachel's most suspenseful ones yet. I really have a thing for courtroom drama. The Good Wife being one of my favorite TV series. Rachel's books always reminds me of that series.

I wouldn't exactly call this edge-of-your-seat action, but it does move right along and very smoothly. Great character development - and I actually liked most of the characters. I really liked Kate, she was just a very likeable person. Sometimes she was cute and sweet and other times she was strong and driven.I think it was a good mix. I liked her little romancey thing she had with Landon (her investigator). He was another very likable character, strong and protective but also very nice to Kate.

I went ahead and took a peak at book two - Lone Witness and I like that she uses a couple of the minor characters from Deadly Proof  to build this one. That's going to be another good one!

If you like courtroom drama - and books about the legal system you would really enjoy book one of this new series. Always a good one from Rachel.
