Divorce lawyer Francine Day is one big case away from securing her place among London's legal elite. She has spent years methodically building her career but her work ethic isn't enough to keep her from falling for her charismatic and suave new client, Martin Joy. She knows it's wrong, but Francine can't help herself even if their blistering affair breaks every professional rule. But something about her new lover doesn't add up. Martin insists his marriage is over, but when Francine sees Martin and his soon-to-be-ex, Donna, on a romantic night out together, she is devastated. That evening is the last time that Donna Joy is seen alive. How did Donna vanish, where has she gone, and why did Francine wake up in her neighbor's flat with blood on her clothes? As media interest in Donna escalates, and Martin becomes the prime suspect in his wife's disappearance, Francine finds herself caught in a labyrinth of deception, lies, and secrets, in which one false move could lead to her undoing. The further Francine goes to find answers, the tighter the net seems to draw - until her career, her professional reputation, and her life are in danger.… (más)

Francine "Fran" Day is an ambitious barrister who specializes in family law. She is a workaholic who manages her bipolar disorder with medication and a tightly regimented lifestyle. She works long hours and eschews relationships in order to maintain strict control over her emotions and life. In her newest case, Fran is representing wealthy hedge-fund manager Martin Joy in his divorce from his wife, Donna. A chance encounter one evening leads to torrid affair with her client and Fran is soon obsessed with her illicit relationship. When Donna disappears after spending the evening with Martin, he is the prime suspect in her disappearance. Fran is desperate to keep the truth about her affair with Martin under wraps, but will her risky decisions cost her career and possibly her life?

Fran is supposed to be an intelligent woman but she makes some very stupid choices once she becomes involved with Martin. She risks everything to spend time with him, including joining him for public dinner engagements and a surprising introduction to his business partner, Alex Cole and his wife Sophie. Even after Martin falls under police scrutiny, Fran makes some incredibly precarious and ill-thought out decisions that jeopardize her law career and her mental health.

For someone who has made it a point to avoid romantic entanglements, Fran falls fast and hard for Martin. She is completely enthralled by his smooth charm and alpha male posturing. Fran completely discounts the troubling information she learns about his ruthless business dealings and she disbelieves the more unsavory aspects of his relationship with Donna. In the aftermath of Donna's disappearance, Fran becomes completely unhinged and obsessed as she tries to single-handedly prove Martin's innocence.

Although the premise is initially very intriguing, Mine quickly becomes repetitive and unrealistic. Fran is an irritating character who easily turns into the helpless, hapless woman who is powerless to resist succumbing to her lust for a powerful business man. Martin is a slickly polished manipulator but it is Fran's neighbor Pete who turns out to be the most repugnant and despicable addition to the storyline. J.L. Butler brings the novel to a twist-filled conclusion but everything is wrapped up a little too neatly. ( )

This was a good book to start the year with.

In having an affair with her client divorce lawyer Francine Day is committing the unforgiveable. But she hopes she can keep it hidden. That becomes dangerous ground when Martin's wife Donna disappears. Francine has been suspecting that Martin and Donna don't really want a divorce, that they are still in love, or is Donna playing around with someone else?

Martin is worth tens of millions and Donna wants half his money in a divorce settlement. All sorts of thoughts go through Francine's head about why Donna has disappeared. But she can't stay away from Martin even though she suspects he has had something to do with Donna's disappearance.

The blurb says this is a slick page-turner, and it is not wrong. It will keep you reading until the very end. ( )

Let me start by saying that I love with books with silhouettes on the cover like this one. I don't know what it is but I seem to be drawn to them.

"In this riveting tale of psychological suspense, a divorce lawyer risks her career, her sanity, and her life when she falls into an illicit, all-consuming affair with her client-who becomes the primary suspect in his estranged wife's sudden disappearance."

This was a good book. I thought the affair was a little over-the-top. She had a lot at risk and she barely knew this guy, Martin Joy, but she's smart. When she put a plan into motion, all the pieces start falling into place but it almost cost her her life.

I also thought it was redundant at times. ( )
