Criminal defense attorney Carling Dent hasn't been the same since she was shot on the job a year ago. She’s become reckless, and has made a habit of taking on clients with less-than-reputable backgrounds. After getting into a car accident, memories of the shooting begin to resurface, leaving Carling with even more questions about what happened last year.

Prosecutor Jared Manning has noticed the change in Carling and doesn't like it one bit. Their relationship used to consist of more than just arguments, but ever since Carling was shot, that's all they seem to do. With the couple now working on the same case, can they rekindle what they once had, or will they end up just getting in each other's way?

Courting Disaster is jam-packed with suspense and page-turning tension. The story is written from Carling's point of view, giving readers an in-depth look at her thoughts as she attempts to figure out who shot her. Unfortunately, there are instances where Carling's stubbornness comes across as irrational behavior, making her appear selfish and self-destructive. While for the most part the dialogue is authentic and believable, there are times the legal jargon becomes too much, bogging down conversations between characters. But overall, the story is fast-paced and gripping and will have readers on edge as Carling rushes to solve her own case.
