Patricia Bradley: Justice Delivered

By Kelly Bridgewater

Carly Smith came by her trust issues honestly. A victim of sex trafficking, she's been at the mercy of merciless men, ignored by law enforcement officers who should have helped her, and seemingly rejected by her family. She can't even trust herself to do the right thing. Though she escaped her captors and is working hard on building a new life, the past continues to haunt her when she discovers that the man she couldn't bring herself to report to police for fear of reliving her captivity is still out there, luring vulnerable girls under the guise of being a modeling agent.

When her own niece is kidnapped, Carly must overcome her fears and come forward with the information she has before it's too late. When that proves to be not enough, she'll have to go after the perpetrators herself.

Award-winning author Patricia Bradley keeps the suspense taut and the stakes high in this fast-paced story that will have readers turning pages long into the night.

My Thoughts:

Patricia Bradley brought out the horrors of human trafficking through a woman who escaped and showed the lengths a person would go to help find someone who is on their way to being put into the human trafficking world. The whole idea of human trafficking sickens me. I can't imagine the horrors those young woman have to go through. Bradley used a current horror and wrote a fast-paced suspense novel that gripped me from the confusing opening prologue. I really enjoyed the story. This is how a suspense novel should be composed. Something horrible in the opening chapter with plenty of down moments filled with equal moments of doubt and cliff-hangers at the end of the chapters. I didn't want to put the book down. I wanted to see justice done and Lexi set free from what could be her future. The romance is the way I like it too. There but not the main focus of the story. I believe fans of Lynette Eason, Dani Pettrey, and DiAnn Mills would enjoy this novel.

I received a complimentary copy of Justice Delivered by Patricia Bradley from Revell Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
