When prosecutor Sophie Dawson is the lone witness to a gang-related double homicide, her world is turned upside down. Private security guard Cooper Knight is hired to protect Sophie from the gang, but she's more concerned about prosecuting her latest case than the threat to her life. Sophie wants to stand for what's right, but can Cooper keep her safe?
I love reading and sharing my latest book with readers like you. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I am friends with many authors and also have a client relationship with many of them. This book may be one I received from a current or future client. Regardless of my relationship with the author, this review reflects my honest opinions of the book. For more information view my full disclaimer policy.
Rachel Dylan once again takes us right into the life of a legal prosecutor in Lone Witness. We follow Prosecutor Sophie Dawson on her first job in the White Collar division of the Fulton County D.A.'s office.
As Sophie is working to build a case against a local bank employee, she ends up being the only witness to a double homicide. Now we have two cases to navigate, which further complicate the plot, creating a suspenseful story that kept me guessing.
I found the dual cases an interesting aspect of the story as we were transported into Sophie's life as she had to do her job and watch her back at the same time. Since she was the only witness to the homicide, Sophie had to be extremely careful. Unfortunately, she became a target multiple times.
Cooper Knight is hired to protect Sophie, but the two are attracted to each other. Although they try to keep things strictly professional, we see the added struggle this causes.
Dylan did a nice job balancing the different elements of this story. From the relationship/not relationship to the events Sophie had to deal with, this story kept me engaged and hoping for the best for Sophie. I also liked the dual cases. While I was afraid this would make it hard to follow the story, I felt Dylan did a nice job keeping them separate while weaving them together at the same time.
