Book Summary

She had long given up the desire to be loved. Now she only needed to be heard.

Jaime Nichols went to law school to find the voice she never had as a child, and her determination to protect girls and women in the path of harm drives her in ways both spoken and unspoken. As Jaime, now a criminal defense attorney, prepares to press charges against someone who wronged her long ago, she must face not only her demons but also the unimaginable forces that protect the powerful man who tore her childhood apart.

Chandler Bolton, a retired veteran, is tasked with helping a young victim who must testify in court—and along with his therapy dog, Aslan, he’s up for the task. When he first meets Jaime, all brains, beauty, and brashness, he can’t help but be intrigued. As Chandler works to break through the wall Jaime has built around herself, the two of them discover that they may have more to offer one another than they ever could have guessed—and that together, they may be able to help this endangered child.

This thrilling installment of the Hidden Justice series explores the healing power of resolution and the weight of words given voice. And as Jaime pursues delayed justice of her own, she unearths eternal truths that will change the course of her life.

Book Review by Bree Herron

What a novel! This book has shown me that I have been missing out on a talented author and great series. I really enjoy law and order type novels. And Jaime is a standout character that has a strong heart and mind. I loved her passion that oozed off the pages when she discussed her job and reason why. There was suspense, romance, friends and family. I think this book could easily please a variety of readers.


Jaime is out to save the world, or the world that she recalls growing up in. The fighter for those without a voice, Jaime has learned to protect those around her even if that means she forgets to care for herself. That is a relatable personality trait for many readers.

Chandler works hard to stay a protector to those that need a hero. Jaime isn’t needing a hero but is drawn to Chandler and his dog. Chandler is a man that you could want as a fictional boyfriend, I know I did.

Enjoyable Moments

The intensity of Jaime’s work focus on this case is epic. I loved every moment that referenced the case and the child. Jaime shined like a beacon of hope and voice in this book.


If the other books in this series are as good, then I need to get my shelf filled with them. I was engaged from the first page- hunting down information and trying not to take Chandler from Jaime. It was easy to enjoy this book and get caught up in the story line.
