This is the first book in a series featuring Nina Reilly, a lawyer who recently moved from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe, Nevada. One of her first clients is Misty Patterson, a woman with a troubled past who confesses to murdering her husband. She admits she hit him in the head with a statue but isn't clear about how his body ended up at the bottom of the lake. Nina has never tried a murder and tries to convince Misty and her family that she needs to hire a criminal lawyer but they want Nina and she can't say no. She hires one of her ex-husband's investigators and tries to find enough evidence to keep Misty out of jail.

I really enjoyed this fast paced legal thriller. Published in 1995, it seems a bit outdated in many places. The characters need to be a bit more developed but that's normal in a debut novel. I see there are now thirteen books in the Nina Reilly series and I definitely plan to pick up another one in the future. It's not John Grisham, but I didn't expect it to be. While a little too long, it was still an entertaining read.

A very good first novel - legal mystery set in Lake Tahoe. ( )

a reasonably alright legal mystery-thriller. the denouement was a bit over the top, and it was not difficult piecing together the whodunnit. but it was still entertaining, the characters have great potential, and the lake tahoe/coastal california settings were well done. ( )

Misty Patterson is a barmaid at a casino in Lake Tahoe. She comes home to her drunken husband who mistreats her. In defense, Misty strikes her violently jealous husband with a polar bear statue. She admits that--but did she kill him? She says she can't remember. Like so many times before, Misty blacked out and the rest of the evening is a blank. Even her childhood memories are a blank. Misty wakes up the next morning and her husband has disappeared, leaving behind a trail of blood, and she's the number-one murder suspect.

San Francisco attorney Nina Reilly has problems of her own. A bad marriage and a worse career setback. Nina relocates to Lake Tahoe and is resolved to recover her spirit, give her young son a secure home, and build up a small law practice. Then, Misty Patterson walks in the door; a blond Barbie doll of a cocktail waitress accused of murdering her husband.

Common sense says Misty is lying. To win this case Nina will have to trust her own instincts, diving headlong into the dark convolutions of the human mind. This murder case—teeming with sinister secrets, unspoken betrayals, and jolting revelations—is going to change everything Nina Reilly believes about the law. It's going to rock everything Misty believes about herself. And if they can learn to trust each other, it's going to give both women their one and only chance to reclaim their shattered lives.

I first read this book many years ago - before I joined goodreads, I believe - and read the first few in the series. Back then I was really into mysteries, legal thrillers, crime dramas, etc. I read so many of them I got sick of the genre and haven't read a single similar book in probably close to 15 years.

Recently I've been kind of "stuck" - can't get into any books - so I've been rereading the Wagons West series and decided maybe what I needed was to try a different genre again, so I requested this one from the library.

I did enjoy it - but I'm still burnt out on the genre. I was bored throughout most of the book. Of course the book is dated, too, with outdated technology especially, and I remembered who the murderer was the mystery part of the book wasn't a mystery to me.

I do recommend the book to those who do enjoy the crime / legal dramas ( )
