What if someone from your past tried to destroy your future?

When Melanie Scott is promoted to junior partner, she thinks she has put her past behind her and while out celebrating her promotion, she meets the handsome and charming Hugo Field.

Melanie has her doubts and is haunted by her mother’s critical voice, which reminds her that she’s messed up before. But when Hugo invites her for dinner, she buries her feeling and accepts his invitation.

She deserves the chance of happiness, doesn’t she?

However, the past she thought she'd buried resurfaces when she receives an email containing a name; Anne Edwards. A name she thought she’d left behind.

When the emails escalate, she knows she has to find out who is behind them, but at what cost?

Melanie is about to learn that her past will shape her future forever…

My Thoughts

Keogh’s writing is superb, with well-developed characters and a plot that twists and turns in unexpected ways. The pacing is just right, with enough action and tension to keep the reader engaged without feeling rushed.

Overall, I highly recommend The Lawyer to anyone who enjoys a good psychological thriller. It’s a well-written and engaging page-turner that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Thank you to NetGalley and Boldwood Books for allowing me to read and review this book.
