Higher hope: tides of truth by Robert whitlow

Set in beautiful Savannah, Georgia, it tells the story of Tami Taylor; a summer law clerk for the Braddock, Appleby and Carpenter law firm.  The Tides of Truth series follows one lawyer's passionate pursuit of truth--in matters of life and the law. Tami is assigned to a case involving a caustic preacher-turned-prophet, who goes by the name of Sister Dabney, due to her strict religious upbringing. This poses a huge moral dilemma for Tami. Will her conscience allow her to take part in a case against one of God's anointed?

The author did create a unique character in Sister Dabney, unfortunately he introduced and then forgot about her until so far along in the book that I had to re-read the first few chapters to find out who he was talking about. I would have preferred hearing more about her than about Tami's troubled love life, which was boring to say the least.

The reviews  of high praise comparing style to John Grisham is not warranted and may be embarrassing to Grisham.  The story was not at all easy to read. It jumped around with extra information that wasn’t helpful to the story.

I didn’t particularly enjoy reading this book and wouldn’t recommend it for either the romance or legal suspense.

I received e-book for a review
