Drew is a prestigious criminal lawyer in the height of his career when he is implicated in charges of witness tampering. He suddenly becomes a pariah in circles and places he once thrived. All he has worked for is gone overnight and his name is dragged through the press. He is not guilty, but assumed so. Determined to protect his friends and family from the political blackmail and ruin from an elected official, he turns inward as he seeks to clear his family and reputation. The author does a wonderful job of depicting life on the inside of political blackmail and retaliation, as well as its effects on the children, families and associations of someone the insider seeks to pull down. Integrity and taking down others in their path, mean nothing to these types of politicians seeking power for re-election.
Molly is also a powerhouse. She has a reputation for being the best of the best as an attorney. Relocating to San Francisco, she has to rebuild connections and networks. Once, a student with Drew and best friends, she has been retained by Drew’s mayor mother to clear his name in court. She has some work to do of her own in gaining custody of her baby. Together, Drew and Molly have a past in college as best friends and study partners.
Three Makes a Family is a clean, light read with an emphasis on healthy family relationships. Both main characters have powerful personalities with insecurities life has thrown their way. I enjoyed the blind character and the sweet love she shares with Molly’s daughter Hazel. I also thought Drew’s pro bono work with domestic violence victims was beautiful. He is a kind, compassionate and sensitive caretaker to baby Hazel. There was some minutiae in reading through in the rich descriptions of every day get togethers with friends and family with not much action, but it’s a great escape read. Cari Lynn Webb knows how to portray her main characters in a vivid and lifelike way. I will look for more titles from this author in the future, and I love Harlequin’s Heartwarming series for its clean content. Thank you for the complimentary copy!
