Review: Jami Alden, Beg for Mercy

Megan and Cole once had a relationship with promise, but that all came crashing down when Cole arrested Megan's brother for murder. Megan is the only one who thinks he's innocent. A few years later, her brother is on death row, and has given up. Megan's now on a race against the clock to turn up any evidence to get the case reexamined, or her only family will be gone. What she wasn't expecting was to land smack in the middle of Cole's new case, or realize she still has feelings for him.

I've never read anything by Alden before, but I will not even hesitate to buy future books. Well-written, fast-paced, and chock full of conflict---this was hard to put down. The romance was realistic and the characters three-dimensional. Best of all, there wasn't a tidy bow wrapped at the end. The insight and POV of the brother added sustenance. What this book boiled down to was faith. Faith in oneself, the person we fall in love with, and that good will prevail in the end. Recommended!
