I have read and enjoyed many of Lisa's books but this one was disappointing. The main character was very self destructive and disrespectful of her position as a judge. As the book progressed Cate's behavior was explained by her painful past but it did not really connect well to the basic story line. It was hard to like Cate given her poor judgment and behavior. I don't want to reveal the ending but I think it would have been more believable if Cate's character had achieved resolution in a more low-key, humble atmosphere rather than as a celebrated heroine.
