Book Review: Saving Madeline by Rachel Ann Nunes


This novel was unlike anything I have ever read before. It was touching and thought-provoking, and even a little bit stressful. It was also romantic in a very cute, very clean way. I really enjoyed Nunes' writing, and I definitely recommend this book.

Caitlin is a public defender. She loves her job when she does protect the innocent, but hates when the bad guys go free. So in one violent case, she makes a choice that could cost her her job.
Amy is Caitlin's younger sister. She is in her twenties, but has the intellectual ability of a five year old. She is sweet, loving, and honest.
Sally is Caitlin's detective friend. She is ridiculously good at her job, sometimes too insightful to be appreciated, and a fantastic confidant.
Parker is charged with kidnapping his own daughter from his ex-wife's house. He claims that Dakota, his ex-wife, does drugs and neglects her children, putting his darling Madeline in very intense danger.
Sally is put on Parker's case, and specifically gets Caitlin on it too since Caitlin is so good at her job. Things get messy when no drugs are found at Dakota's house, making things look very grim for Parker. And Caitlin can't stop thinking about Parker, even though he should just be a client. Enter a highly attractive DA with some ulterior motives, and things get even more messy. Will Caitlin make the right decisions and trust the right people in time to protect Madeline?

This book was so good and 100% clean. I will probably track down more novels by Nunes.
Happy Reading!
