Usually I avoid legal thrillers. John Grisham and his ilk conjure images of bad writing filled with purple prose, cheesy cliches and a healthy serving of "Let's get those bastards using our big brains and bad ass legal skills." Add the essentialist and simplistic, one dimensional ... I mean female characters and well, you've lost me. Not even Lisa Scottoline tempts me much even though I prefer her to the others.

That being said, I really enjoyed this book. Not only did I like the development of Nina Reilly's character and the legal conundrum in which she found herself, but I also wanted to move to Tahoe. Or at least the mountains. I kept wondering if I, too, could leave the big city for small-medium town living.
