Now, as complications both professional and personal stack up, Molly can only hope that her own wits, heart, and instincts are enough?both in and out of court.

Any book that makes me laugh out loud in public gets 4 stars from me. Ms. Heller does well to engage the reader in the life and work of a lawyer without burdening us with too much lawyer jargon. I loved the eccentrics of the main character Molly. She's lovable and entertaining. There's a hint of romance and quite a few comical moments. Great fictional read with a good grasp of reality interwoven.
