Title: Deadly Proof
Written By: Rachel Dylan
Genre: Contemporary Christian Thriller
Recommended Ages: 15+
I like lawyer novels, but so many of them have content I don’t care for. This book was refreshing for it’s thrilling, but clean content.
The characters were all well-rounded, though some things that happened or that they did were fairly predictable. My favorites were Kate and Landon, but they were also the most developed characters. The minor characters were slightly developed, but didn’t have a lot of depth to them.
Having never been to a law office or anything to do with the law, I can only assume the author knew what she was doing and saying in her book. That being said, I thought the dialogue was realistic, funny, and never stilted.
There were both good and bad plot twists. The good ones I didn’t see coming, but there were more than I did see coming. The storyline itself was good. I would have liked to see Kate and Landon’s relationship developed perhaps a little more than it was from feelings and physical attraction. Even so, their romance was probably one of the more realistic I have read in a while.
Overall Writing Quality: .5/1
Apparently I am becoming a writing critic because there were a few times I thought to myself, ‘That could have been written better.’ Overall, the book was good, but in a few places, to was only so-so.
Were there times I couldn’t put it down? Sure. Like the entire last half. The first half didn’t have as much excitement happening, so it was easier to put down.
If you like John Grisham’s plots, but not the language and sexual content, I highly recommend this book. It got a lower rating due to the writing quality which was good, but for a traditionally published book, I expect more, so I’m a little pickier about things.
Note: I received this book from the publisher with no compulsion to review it. All thoughts are my own.
