After the tragic death of her husband, Meredith Morgan spends a decade raising her son, Zach, alone. On the verge of Zach's graduation from high school, Meredith moves in with her fiancé, Dr. Reed Edwards, excited to begin a new chapter. But, when Zach is accused of sexually assaulting the daughter of a prominent lawyer, Meredith's life spins out of control. Reed's ex-wife does not want their daughters in the same house as Zach; Meredith's best friend distances herself and her sons from the fray. Only childhood friend and lawyer, Peter Flynn, remains by Meredith's side.
As Peter and Meredith team up to prove Zach's version of the events, long buried feelings resurface, complicating an already difficult circumstance. Meanwhile, evidence mounts against Zach and Meredith faces the ever-increasing likelihood her son is guilty. Struggling to cope with the idea of Zach behind bars, Meredith learns just how far a mother will go to protect her own.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
As a mother of two sons, this book was both captivating, and difficult, to read. I absolutely would go to the ends of the earth to protect my children……but, I honestly don’t know what I would do in Meredith’s situation.
Treese’s characters, Meredith, Zach, Reed and Peter…..all of them, really, were perfectly chiseled. The intense plot line really came to life for me and I was turning the pages long into the night. I needed to see what happened to Zach. I needed to see what Meredith would do.
As a mother, I felt every single, raw emotion that Meredith felt. Every time she and Peter tried to prove his innocence, I felt my heart squeezing. I just could not imagine that happening to my sons and myself in real life. It was absolutely heart breaking!
If absolutely recommend this with 4 stars and two thumbs up! Treese truly brought to life an incredible plot line and had me on the edge of my seat so many times! If you are mother, I highly recommend you grab this up…..then hug your babies tight. I can’t wait until the next amazing novel from this talented author!
