Saving Madeline by Rachel Ann Nunes


As a public defender, Caitlin McLoughlin dreams of someday locking the bad guys in prison instead of defending them. But prosecuting jobs are scarce, and Caitlin’s future seems bleak. When her current client is about to walk away from a brutal crime, she risks her career to make sure he doesn’t hurt anyone else. Yet what if her choice means sacrificing her career and the means care for her mentally disabled sister?

Then Caitlin meets Parker Hathaway, charged with kidnapping four-year-old Madeline. Just another criminal, another job, Caitlin thinks.

But Parker tells a far different story. Can Caitlin believe him, as her heart urges? Is she willing to put everything on the line to defend her client—a man who claims to be protecting the child he loves? Or is her trust better placed in the handsome deputy district attorney with his undefeated record in court? Caitlin’s pursuit of the truth swiftly thrusts her into a maze of unanswered questions and unexpected heartache.

Meanwhile, time is running out for Madeline. If Caitlin doesn’t find the proof she is looking for soon, there may not be a future for any of them.

Saving Madeline by Rachel Ann Nunes is a novel worth reading. Although marketed to an LDS audience the characters in this book are not LDS. Saving Madeline is quite predictable and I didn’t feel much of an emotional attachment to the characters but it’s still a good story worth the time to read. A great storyline that is not preachy or cheesy explores what a parent would do to keep their child safe.
