Enjoyed the book and was drawn to the characters however, a tad long (never thought I'd say that) with a lot of unnecessary words. The story was great and I was surprised at the outcome. If I had to pick a flaw, it was that the author is writing a lesbian novel. REALLY!! At 430 pages I expected a little more than junior high sex. While I personally don't enjoy books that spend the entire time in the bedroom, or elsewhere, this was most definitely lacking. Please don't include the book in this genre if you're simply writing straight fiction.
I do recommend the book though for a good read.
The San Francisco Mystery Series: A legal thriller/crime drama that tests the bonds of love and loyalty among District Attorney Amanda Hawthorne, Dr. Jen Dawson and Detective Tommy Vietti.
The carnal catch--that exquisite, sweet moment when a woman is seized with passion in a romantic encounter and committed to fulfilling her sexual desire without turning back.
Jen Dawson is an emergency room physician in San Francisco who thinks she has her life figured out. Tommy Vietti is an experienced detective who is loyal to the force, his Italian family, and his girl, Jen. Amanda Hawthorne is a charismatic District Attorney who prosecutes criminals while fending off attacks from mobsters. When their lives intersect both personally and professionally, passion leads them in a surprising direction.
Jen's colleague, Dr. Lane Wallace, becomes a murder suspect in the death of his paramour, the daughter of a Russian billionaire. Jen fiercely defends Lane, but her lover, Tommy, discounts her opinions as misplaced loyalty. Tommy is determined to crack the case, even if it means unearthing cold, hard truths about crimes of passion in his old neighborhood.
When Jen unwittingly becomes a witness in the investigation, she must defend her actions against criticism by Tommy and Amanda. During an argument, Jen and Amanda quickly discover they have more in common than just butting heads. As their relationship takes a surprising turn, Jen's world is thrown into turmoil, forcing her to make a decision that will carry lifelong consequences for the three of them.
