Publisher's Summary

If they expected silence, they hired the wrong woman. 

Caroline Bragg’s life has never been better. She and Brandon Lancaster are taking their relationship to the next level, and she has a new dream job as legal counsel for Praecursoria - a research lab that is making waves with its cutting-edge genetic therapies. The company’s leukemia treatments even promise to save desperately sick kids - kids like 11-year-old Bethany, a critically ill foster child at Brandon’s foster home. 

When Caroline’s enthusiastic boss wants to enroll Bethany in experimental trials prematurely, Caroline objects, putting her at odds with her colleagues. They claim the only goal at Praecursoria is to save lives. But does someone have another agenda? 

Brandon faces his own crisis. As laws governing foster homes shift, he’s on the brink of losing the group home he’s worked so hard to build. When Caroline learns he’s a Praecursoria investor, it becomes legally impossible to confide in him. Will the secrets she keeps become a wedge that separates them forever? And can she save Bethany from the very treatments designed to heal her? 

This latest romantic legal thriller by bestseller Cara Putman shines a light on the shadowy world of scientific secrets and corporate vendettas - and the ethical dilemmas that plague the place where science and commerce meet.

“I loved Cara Putman’s Lethal Intent and rooted for her heroine Caroline Bragg through every twist and turn. This legal thriller perfectly captures what it’s like to grow from law clerk to lawyer, and when Caroline finds herself faced with a heartbreaking ethical dilemma that leads to the corporate battle of her life, she confronts the challenge with strength and resources she never knew she had. Putman seamlessly blends the story with a wonderfully inspiring romance, too. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Lethal Intent!” (Lisa Scottoline, New York Times best-selling author of 30 novels, including her upcoming, After Anna)

“Intriguing characters. Romantic tension. Edge-of-your-seat suspense. And a fast-paced ending that will leave you exhausted (in a good way!).” (Robert Whitlow, award-winning author of Promised Land)

Overwhelmed with heavy handed Christianity

This could have been such a good book! The premise was interesting, but the religious overtones became overwhelming. DNF. I will not be buying anything else from this author.

Excellence

I’m in awe over Cara Putman’s ability to weave suspense, tragedy, hope, love, and law into her stories. I’ve enjoyed all over DC-set books, but this one is my favorite. The perfect end to a great group of novels.

This book will keep you guessing

Working in the medical field, this story felt very real. Cara Putnam does a great job giving this story a life that will have your mind reeling. In the midst of it all she gives you hope. Great read in the romantic suspense department.
