About the Author

Judy spends most of my time writing novels.  A mother of two, a wife of one, a sibling of three, I was orphaned at age thirty-three.  Aside from writing novels, she has contributed various works on law, history, and social issues.  Her true love, apart from my family, is fiction—writing and reading it.

My Thoughts

The story is set in a small town but nothing in this town is boring. This rugged terrain is the land of cowboys and Indians. This fictional book is full of adventure, suspense and violence. You find yourself spellbound wondering what is going to happen next. Megan is a role model, a highly successful respected lawyer who solves difficult cases. She is financially independent, gutsy and tough. Gun toting Megan is definitely no sheep as she challenges society perceptions of what is right and wrong. Megan finds herself solving difficult cases in and out of the courtroom! You will find yourself cheering for Megan’s success. The story is believable and compelling, like it could really happen. Full of mystery, both men and women would enjoy this book. The language in this book is intended for an adult audience.
