BOOK REVIEW: Miranda Writes
by Gail Ward Olmsted
ABOUT THE BOOKS (from Amazon):
A disgraced attorney seeking redemption. A single mother desperate to regain custody of her son. Two women willing to risk it all to put a sexual predator behind bars.
Former Assistant District Attorney Miranda Quinn is on the brink of a career comeback when she gets a phone call. It’s a witness who disappeared three years earlier, resulting in a violent criminal going free. Miranda got fired as a result, but the witness has re-surfaced with a shocking story to tell; one that implicates Miranda and her ex, defense attorney Adam Baxter. And now, there’s a new victim.
Miranda’s legal advice blog-turned-podcast Miranda Writes is about to become a daytime TV show, but the negative press could destroy her credibility. Will the network stand behind her?
When it comes to the law, Miranda has all the answers, but the questions are getting harder and the stakes are getting higher. The dangerous web of lies and cover-ups she exposes leaves her questioning just how much she is willing to risk. She has the right to remain silent, but needs to speak up… doesn’t she?
Miranda Writes is a story of how far we’ll go to protect those we love and the power of second chances.

The author sent me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, so here it is…
Miranda Writes was a really enjoyable story. The main character, Miranda, seems to have failed as a lawyer. She was fired from her job on suspicion that she and her boyfriend (who worked for the opposing council on her case) were responsible for the key witness in that case disappearing. When she recovers from her loss, Miranda starts up a second (and very successful) career as a legal blogger, and she’s just about to launch a TV show when the defendant from her infamous case strikes again…and the key witness mysteriously reappears.
Miranda has a new chance to figure out what happened all those years ago and help put the attacker behind bars. But she encounters a lot of surprises and new roadblocks along the way. And in the meantime Miranda discovers what’s really important to her in her life.
This book reminded me a little of The Perfect Marriage by Jeneva Rose. I recommend it if you enjoy legal thrillers and/or women’s fiction.
