Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for review from DRC’s Promotions and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".
Alex is determined to marry Kylie as soon as possible and start their future together. Having his father free to wreak havoc is not part of the plan. When James is found dead on Alex’s property, Alex is charged with murder—and the District Attorney is going after the death penalty.
Kylie is in for the fight of her life to get Alex acquitted. Faced with the possibility of Alex’s conviction, will Kylie go outside the law to save him?
Kylie Tate gets the question of a lifetime. And she’s sharing her happiness with Alex Stone. They are a couple that seem perfect for each other.
This book starts off so happy and no offense to the author but as each chapter goes by I’m anticipating the proverbial shoe to drop. It’s terrible that I put that expectation on the author but that shows how conditioned we can become. There were some scenes that I wished that I could get into Alex’s head so I knew what he was thinking. But I loved how Kylie was letting us see her life through her eyes.
To give this author her due, when that shoe eventually did drop it wasn’t what I expected. I can honestly say it was a surprise and that just made me love this story more. It’s a story of great strength and watching that strength show up again and again in this author’s well-orchestrated scenes is what had me following Kylie and Alex’s story until the very end. And I was glad to finally see what Alex was thinking.
This was the first book of the trilogy that I read. I didn’t feel like I had to read the first two books in order to enjoy Vindication but it is like reading the ending of a book before reading the story. So if you get the chance, I would read Of Demons & Stones and Revenge first. This way you will get the full experience. The ending of this book also left me with a sense that Kylie and Alex’s “adventures” are just beginning. Can’t wait to see what this author is going to pull out of her hat next.
