    Powerful debut novel from an author to watch! Emily Conrad is a rare gem of a writer. In JUSTICE, she's able to craft a story that is at once entertaining, heartwarming, and romantic, but also offers an honest, authentic look at real life in the real world. With prose that hints of lit...

    Forgiveness and rape are not easy subjects to write about convincingly, but Emily has done it. The strengths of this book are the dialogue and the characters. I love the coffee shop setting and the small town-yearning-for-a-bigger-heart feel. Jake and Brooklyn do not disappoint. Their ...

    Amazing. Once I started reading I was hard pressed to put it down. Jake and Brooklyn are amazing characters who live on after the last page is turned. Not to be missed. ...

    At the core, this story?s title is the one-word bare truth of each character?s reality. Revenge, payback, responsibility, love, forgiveness, and loss all expose the depth of faith and steer the course toward Justice. Friends from childhood, Jake and Brooklyn can?t seem to figu...
