Motion to Suppress by Perri O'Shaughnessy

Misty Patterson only remembered the fight, the polar bear statue she used as a bludgeon, a trail of blood, and the comatose sleep that followed. When she awoke, her husband and the statue were missing. Only the blood was left. She had come to attorney Nina Reilly's office seeking a divorce. But when Anthony Patterson was found on the bottom of the frigid lake, Misty needed a miracle.

Barely a week before, Nina Reilly had been a happily married San Francisco lawyer. Suddenly she's a single parent, opening a shoestring practice in Lake Tahoe. And now Nina finds herself embroiled in a case that's going to change everything she believes about the law. It's going to rock everything Misty Patterson believes about herself. And it's going to give both women a look at the damning piece of evidence that will challenge their faith in each other. Or give them their one and only chance to win...

MOTION TO SUPPRESS by Perri O'Shaughnessy is 450 pages long in paperback form. This is #1 in the Nina Reilly series.

I loved this first book. I thought the story was very well written and it made you want to keep turning the pages. Nothing is as it appears in the book. I was really surprised with the ending. I didn't even see it coming. I could have seen a different scenarios, but was really not prepared for what happened. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series because if it if is as good as the first, I am going to love it too.

Nina has some very interesting characters working with her and I am sure we will get to know each one a lot better in the books to come. The descriptions of Lake Tahoe were just a minimal part of this story. It was more about the characters involved in the murder. There were many that you only got a brief glimpse of, but you did see inside them and what their motivation might have been.

I am giving this 5 out of 5 stars and can't believe this was a first book. Perri O'Shaughnessy is a sister team that writes under this one name. I definitely plan to read more in the Nina Reilly series.
