Sometimes justice is delayed…


Delayed Justice by Cara C. PutmanCara Putman’s third installment in the Hidden Justice series focuses on Jaime Nichols, who is determined to make her uncle pay for sexually abusing her as a child. “Delayed Justice” brings attention to the plight of young children who suffer at the hands of others and have no voice to seek justice.

After Jaime pursues criminal charges against her uncle, she discovers that he is being considered for the rank of 1-star general.  He tries to get her to dismiss the charges and when she refuses, his retaliation becomes relentless.

During her turmoil, she meets Chandler Bolton who, along with his therapy dog, are tasked with helping a young victim of sexual abuse.

While I admire and appreciate Putman’s work and enjoyed her previous books in the series, “Delayed Justice” was not my favorite. The plot was timely and very well thought-out and, as an attorney herself, she gives an accurate portrayal of the legal system. However, I found it very difficult to identify with Jaime. She was often self-focused and sometimes whiny and rude, but maybe this is a trait of those who take on the victim mentality for the majority of their life.  She redeemed herself by the end of the book, mostly due to the young victim she was helping.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free as part of Cara Putman’s “Delayed Justice” Launch Team.  The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
