  • Sarah Sundin
    Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman is a riveting legal thriller. As Reid and Emilie race to save a little girl, their mutual grief and self-doubts provide realistic and touching counterpoints. The story illustrates the plight of women trapped in abusive relationships, timely and relevant and sobering. Imperfect Justice is an excellent continuation of the Hidden Justice series, but it easily stands alone. I loved this book!
  • Andrea Cox
    by Andrea Renee CoxWow! I want to reread this book immediately, but I don’t have the time. Imperfect Justice was so complex and interesting. From stalkers and murders to grief, domestic violence, and custody battles, this book pretty much had a little of everything. Don’t let that intimidate you, though. These things were all balanced out by faith and clean romance. The fact that domestic violence and fighting for folks stuck in those scenari...
  • Shalini
    This book made me think, it didn’t make me think about the story, but about the underlying reason for this story to be born. It’s a romantic suspense with a bit of legal framework. But the basic plot rests on domestic violence, a violence that sometimes is obvious but most other times, it’s insidious, making its attacks, hidden. The story is simple enough; Kaylene Adams killed her elder daughter, critically injured her younger one before ki...
  • Regina Jennings
    Bite-Your-Fingernails FictionCara Putman is a master at bringing both drama and heart to real-life legal conflicts. In Imperfect Justice, Attorney Emilie Wesley deals with a horrifying situation, and if she fails the consequences would be tragic. Not only does she need to clear the name of her client, she also has to prove the killer's guilt to save a child. And even with those high stakes, I was never sure exactly what would happen. With Putman'...

    Well done suspense novel! I was pulled in with the prologue and remained engaged the entire novel.As an advocate for abused women, Emilie has a difficult job. She tries not to get too emotionally involved as sometimes she does her best and there isn't a happily ever after. Emilie was on the verge of making a positive impact for her client Kaylene and then tragedy struck. With this particular client, Emilie just can't let go of what has happened a...

  • Kav
    Honestly, I'm surprised at how much I'm enjoying this Hidden Justice series by Cara Putman. I just read the first book a month ago and am definitely on the legal suspense bandwagon now. It's a totally different kind of mystery and investigation but just as riveting. And while I don't know a lot about the legal system, I feel like the author writes for readers like me. Which means the legal lingo and court scenes don't get so technical that she lo...
  • Laura
    My thoughts: I didn't read the first book in this series Beyond Justice, but IMPERFECT JUSTICE easily stands alone. I was sucked into the life of an attorney working for the abused women clinic, helping them to get the help they need to escape the nightmares they are caught in, as well as into the world of a financial planner. As characters, both Reid and Emilie had things coming at them from all directions. Forced together by the knowledge that ...
  • Carrie Schmidt (Reading is My SuperPower)
    Cara Putman’s Imperfect Justice follows Emilie Wesley, Hayden’s roommate and best friend from Beyond Justice. This means we get to visit with Hayden and Andrew again, and that makes me happy!While Hayden’s story revolved around an immigration-related case, Emilie’s story focuses on domestic abuse and murder. In this way, Putman continues to shine a light on ‘hot-button’ legal issues while also giving us a behind-the-scenes peek of the...
  • Tressa (Wishful Endings)
    IMPERFECT JUSTICE is a story of a woman's fight to save women in abusive relationships and the one loss that deeply impacts her while also opening up a new direction for her life. The romance is sweet and develops slowly while the suspense steadily grows to a climatic end. Recommended to those who enjoy inspirational romantic suspense and legal thrillers.This story was full of sweet moments between friends and heartbreaking ones as Emilie loses a...
  • Carole Jarvis
    Reviewed at The Power of Words: Justice is not the type of book that you pick up with the intention of just reading a few pages before going to bed because it won’t happen – either stopping at only a few pages or going to sleep. It’s that good.I have a love/hate relationship with suspense novels because I don’t care to be scared, yet I do enjoy a story that captures me from the first sentence and holds me in...

    Read this book in one sitting! I am so enjoying this author’s legal thriller series..more to come.
  • Mia
    I've been really enjoying how Cara Putman has been weaving real-life problems into her new series. It opens our eyes to situations we might now always come face-to-face with, but we should never be unaware of it, risking turning our nose towards a heart-breaking and wrecking dilemma.Full review to come :)
  • Kelly Bridgewater
    Imperfect Justice by Cara Putnam is a great mixture of suspense, romance, and a legal thriller to keep a number of unique and different fans happy. She didn't compose this novel to fit into one tiny little genre. It fits across a number of them. I enjoy stories that feature strong women who are seeking justice for other characters and for themselves.The writing is clear and concise. I had no problem figuring out what Emilie's issues were. Putnam ...
  • Rachel
    This is a legal thriller that deals with an issue that will grab at your heart - an abusive marriage, a murder including children, and an uncle trying to save his niece from the same fate. The inclusion of a stalker for the heroine will keep you on the edge of your seat. I enjoyed the intense way this book was written and the light romance that gives you a little bit of relief from the mystery of everything else going on. This is the second book ...

    Imperfect Justice slowly builds from an intriguing start to a fast-paced ending, weaving together legal cases, journalism, romance, financial investment, and a murder investigation.Attorney Emilie Wesley is finding it hard to believe that the woman she was helping to leave her controlling and abusive husband is the same woman who shot and killed her young daughter before killing herself.

    Title: Imperfect JusticeAuthor: Cara PutmanPages: 352Year: 2017Publisher: Thomas NelsonMy rating 5+ out of 5 stars.The Justice series begins with the first book titled, Beyond Justice. In her latest novel, Imperfect Justice, Cara really ups her game by placing before readers a thoroughly addictive story that was hard to put down. Though, to be truthful, I didn’t want to put it down! Having read her first novel, I was very much interested in see...

    Imperfect Justice grabbed me from the first page and I was hooked until the last one. I thoroughly enjoyed it! This is the second book in the Hidden Justice series and it was great to visit with Hayden and other girls and their mentor from law school once more in Emilie's story. Each of the woman have a different area of the law that they specialize in according to their convictions or opportunities.Emilie Wesley comes from a wealthy family and w...
  • Rachael
    This legal suspense is very different from the first book in the series, focusing on a totally different aspect of law, yet they share the same love of justice and desire to fight for those who can't fight for themselves. In this case Emilie works with women trapped in abusive situations, and you can feel the author's heart for these women in her writing, as well as the toll these cases take on the advocate--not all end happily.Emilie and Reid ma...
  • Maureen Timerman
    Cara Putman has woven a tale of heartbreak, courage, and resolve to fight for justice, all with their heart on their sleeves. This book has a bit of everything, from stalking, controlling, murder, abuse, and then those who want to be there to help those in need. What starts out as just a job of being a lawyer and helping those in horrible situations, ends up being life changing, fighting the all consuming pain and grief and hopeless at not being ...
  • Laurie Beemer
    Cara Putman writes novels that might make some people uncomfortable because of the story content. This concept is one that needs to be told over again and again. This is an important story that unfortunately happens all to often but people are afraid to talk about. This story needs to be told. The emotional foundation of this book makes the relationship of faith an important part of Emilie and Reid's life and continued growth. This book was full ...
  • Ibjoy1953 Hannabass
    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK The police, and everyone else think it is a cut and dry murder, but Attorney Emily Wesley knows that her friend Kaylene Adams would never take the life of one daughter and shoot the other one. It had to be something with her abusive husband, but he was acting the perfect dad with his daughter that survived. The only person who knew the real answer was the surviving daughter. But no one could get close to her because of he...
  • Kyle Robertson
    This is the second book by Cara Putman that I have read. Putman writes books that are relevant and controversial, and they also have a Christian theme throughout. This one is peppered with quite a bit more Christianity than her last novel. This is not a bad thing at all, I'm just stating a fact. In fact, I found it very refreshing. This is the second book in the "Hidden Justice" series, a follow-up to the critically acclaimed "Beyond Justice". Th...
  • Kristine Morgan
    if you like legal thrillers then you will certainly enjoy Cara Putnam's latest book. Imperfect Justice deals with the harsh reality of domestic violence. Ms. Putnam did an excellent job of writing a riveting tale of a lawyer at a domestic violence help center. Attorney Emilie Wesley does her best to protect her clients, sometimes she succeeds, sometimes not. Reid Billings comes to Emilie to find out what went wrong in his sister's life. There are...
  • Loraine Nunley
    This is one of those stories that kept me up late at night reading it because I just had to know how it ended. I really enjoyed the romance between Reid and Emilie as well as the suspense of them trying to prove that Reid’s sister did not commit the crime everyone thought she did. Throw in a stalker and a little girl in trouble and I was hooked. 4 1/2 stars. Full review at my website. I received this book complimentary as a participant of the L...
