I was very disappointed in this book. Maybe for those under 25 years old it would be good. It's the same old girl hates/loves guy, she's nasty to him, he keeps coming back for more, etc. etc. That dialogue is almost 3/4 of the book. Geez............

I am halfway through this novel and still dont know what is going on nor do I care. The 2 main characters are so busy playing "come here, go away, I hate you but love you' that there is no room for plot. Not a very good mystery, not a very good romance. This book is good for the shut-in who is low on choices.

Criminal attorney Jessica Ford is the Secret Service's witness protection program after being the only survivor and witness to the murder of the First Lady. But she doesn't relocate and after replacing a former associate that left on a high profile case that gets her notice, someone is out to kill her. Little does anyone know (except two runaway teenagers), the associate was murdered also. Karen Robard's tale of legal intrigue and the powers that be makes for one gripping novel. There is tense moments, romance and lots of action. I was a little let done with the climax but the ending made me let that pass.

Did not enjoy this #2 novel as much as I did #1 Pursuit which read a while back. The book leads off with a murder witnessed by two runaway girls. It then jumps to a trial continued from the first book. Jessica, criminal attorney has been in witness protection program since the witness to First Lady’s murder. Her secret service agent Mark (ex-boyfriend) is cool, but Jess is drama queen. She wins the case after the girl on the stand backs off from the rape case of the son of US senator. Goes back and forth between the two and back to the runaway teens who hold the key.

ROBARDS is a great writer, this book was not her best. It seems as if she is trying to write two books and then merge , taking a long time to connect the two plots into one. I will always recommend the author, as her goodbooks outweigh her bad.

This book had such an interesting premise that I couldn't put it down.

I liked most of the book but the ending was a bit too far fetched and I felt disappointed with how everything was tied up so quickly at the end. I also thought some of the characters actions were too unbelievable or out of character. Definitely not her best book.

This book reads like a Silhouette novel and at this price was not worth the read. Shattered was outstanding but Justice was just repetitve dialogue with very little intrigue and other than the drowning scene held very little suspense.

The first few pages of this novel, wherein a character was agreeing to marry a man she had known for one week, let me in on the fact that this book was not for me. The dialogue (as was the situation) was just silly. And then the Secret Service agent is the ex-boyfriend of the woman he is assigned to guard? Not in real life. Glad the other reviews, bar one, agree with me for the most part on this novel. As you can tell, I didn't get a free advance copy!

Attorney Allison Howard agrees to marry her lover Greg Sullivan. They race to her house so she packs a suitcase and has something to wear as they go to Vegas to tie the knot. Unknown to both of them, two runaways from juvenile institution Shelter House are hiding under the bed when Greg snaps Allison's neck. The youngsters flee from the house, but Greg sees them. Jessica Ford is in court working a high profile rape case in which the accused is a senator's son. While questioning the victim Tiffany Higgs, she suddenly admits to lying; saying she had consensual sex with Rob Phillips. The lawyers are so pleased with Jessica's win that she is transferred to the sixth floor working on a high profile layer's team. Secret Service Agent Mark Ryan returns into Jessica's life because one of the men who knew the First Lady's death was murder has been killed. Mark fears someone is tying up loose ends with Jess and him the remaining witnesses. He plans to keep her safe and hopes she gives him a second chance as several attempts on her life occur. This legal thriller is filled with action yet readers get to know and understand the myriad of emotions of the prime protagonists. The key to exhilarating tale is that the readers senses the romance in the air everywhere the pair appears, but it is cleverly kept in the background of the suspense as a deadly assassin is coming for Jessica and Rob. With several other strong subplots that blend into the prime story line, Karen Robards provides a superlative thriller. Harriet Klausner

Enjoyed reading all the way through, but ending was abrupt and felt incomplete.

I was really liking this book, until I got to the last two or three chapters. **SPOILER ALERT** There is no way that the killers could have been who she said. No way. It was completely implausible. I know that talking implausibility with a book about ghosts is a little silly, but the ghost plotline fit seamlessly into the story. Who the killers turned out to be- ridiculous. I felt like she got to the ending, realized she didn't know who the killers were, and just picked some characters. It was stupid. Also stupid, the two page epilogue at the end. It was badly written and pointless. Why was that in there? We had the entire story be in Jess and Mark's point of view but the ending was . . . not. Why? It just made me mad. I read that she wanted to make this a series but that epilogue was just pathetic. How can you make a series out of that? Just let it go. It tied nothing up. Ugh. The ending of the story and the epilogue ruined my good will towards the book, but I had really enjoyed it until then.

I've always been a big fan of Robards books,but seriously,it was a srtuggle to get to page 75 before I finally stopped wasting my time.In the past I've always bought her books without even reading the front flap summary.It's disappointing to take her name off my favorite author list.

Story lines barely developed. Reminded me of teenage romantic novel.

I am surprised at the number of negative reviews for this book! I confess,.I am a pretty big fan but I really, reaaly liked this one (as most of her others). If you are thinking about giving this book a chance, my advice is first, IGNORE PLEASE, THE REVIEWS THAT ARE DEDICATED TO RETELLING &/or SPOILING THE STORY! I IMPLORE YOU, Fellow Reader to leave that type of "review" (attempting to retell the story), to THE PROS/Editorial Reviews. Secondly, the sample is free an may be enough to help you decide. I've read Robards for years; the good, the outstanding and the so-so. None have been true time wasters to me & i feel thid one was really, really good. Don't let any of us make or break it for you and to all co-NOOK? fans, I wish you many happy words! Smiles...@NurseLisainOhio...twitterverse ;-)

I love Karen Robards , and I really loved this book...it was nice to see characters from other books! The only thing that I did not like was how she ended the story...even so I really enjoyed revisiting these characters and I thought it was well worth my time!!

This was a choppy, hard to read book. The characters never fully developed and it was so boring. Yikes! The story did not flow and the characters were stagnant. Really a lousy read.

Justice begins with a woman dying, two young runaways being the only witnesses, and an unexpected conclusion to a rape trial. Jess is a young, hard-working lawyer that is moving up in the ranks of the law firm where she works as she has just won a high profile case. But instead of celebrating Jess is trying to figure out why the prosecution's main witness recanted her story on the stand. With the help of her ex-boyfriend, Mark Ryan, Jess begins to investigate more into the case that she has just won. But then an attack is made on her life and it is time to figure out who is trying to kill her and why....could it be from the past that she is still trying to hide from??This is what romantic suspense is supposed to be! From the very beginning, I was pulled into the story and the characters' lives. I liked that the two main characters, Jess and Mark, had a history with each other but each of them thought that their past relationship was completely over. It had me interested from the very beginning to see how everything would work out between them. The mystery aspect of the story was really good and helped to pull me into the book. I liked that the author was able to tie the storyline from Jess' past into the storyline with her current case. It really made me wonder who was out to kill her and kept me on my toes. The suspense kept me reading this book late into the night and I just didn't want to set it down. And I didn't see the ending coming from a mile away...I was totally surprised. All of this added up to a very enjoyable read for me and I'm looking forward to reading more by this author. Recommended to fans of romantic suspense and romance in general.Bottom Line: A fun read that kept me guessing the entire time!Disclosure: This book was sent to me for review as part of a blog tour hosted by Gallery & Pocket Blog Tours. Thanks!

I¿ve never read anything by Karen Robards before, and while I usually get embarrassed by gratuitous romance novels, I only blushed a couple of times while reading her newest thriller, Justice.Although I didn¿t think the characters or the plot were the most believable, I did find Jess and Mark to be likable and I was hoping all would work out well for our heroine and her buff bodyguard.The story was pretty intriguing and it was set to a good, page-turning pace. A nice, easy, enjoyable read.3 stars

FYI, I RPed TawnyClaw. BrookClan was an obvious clan to raid, being small yet active. I, myself, did not kill Tawny, but he, as well as most of the killed cats, have remade cats. BrookCla is no weaker than it was before, though you did cause trouble taking Ripple. I would say you are the trouble.
