Book Review: Scorned Justice

3 Apr

Scorned-Justice-197x300Texas Ranger Brody Calhoun is with his parents in west Texas when an unexpected attack injures the brother of Rebecca Morgan, Brody’s high school sweetheart. The local sheriff, a good friend, asks for Brody’s help. At first, it seems an open-and-shut case.

As Brody digs deeper, he realizes the attack may be related to an organized crime trial Rebecca will be overseeing. With Rebecca’s help, he compiles evidence involving cattle rustling, bribery and dirty payoffs that shatter the entire community and put Rebecca directly in the line of fire.

Brody expects to protect her. What he never expects is to fall for Rebecca all over again, or for a murder to throw the case wide open. Is Brody’s faith strong enough to withstand not only deep-rooted corruption and cattle rustling but also love?


Margaret-Daley-300x200Margaret Daley, an award-winning author of eighty-three books, has been married for over forty years and is a firm believer in romance and love. When she isn’t traveling, she’s writing love stories, often with a suspense thread and corralling her three cats that think they rule her household.

My Impressions:

Wow, what a wild ride! If you like page-turning, twist-galore suspense, then Scorned Justice is for you. The newest book in Margaret Daly’s Men of The Texas Rangers series, Scorned Justice can be read as a standalone novel. Set in San Antonio and the surrounding area, the novel offers a twisting plot and a sweet romance. I highly recommend this book.

Rebecca Morgan is the judge on an important trial featuring the Russian mafia and an Hispanic gang. Harassment of jury members has caused one mistrial and the unsettling harassment and attacks that plague Rebecca and those close to her may trigger yet another. Rebecca is determined to control this trial despite the increasing violence. But following the end of the case, Rebecca is still a target and her longtime friend (a love interest), Brody Calhoun, a Texas Ranger, is determined to get to the bottom of the case.

Scorned Justice has just about everything a fan of suspense could want — life threatening attacks, car bombs, murders and kidnapping. It also has some surprises in store for its readers. I didn’t see the ending coming, and that just added to my enjoyment. This is a book I just could not put down. The romance was good too! It is always great to see the development of characters from cautious to seizing the life God has in store.

Highly Recommended.
