MERIT BRIDGES, an attorney and widowed mother in Austin, Texas, works hard, drinks too much wine, and sleeps with younger men. When Merit goes after a shady corporation threatening her client, she encounters hired gun Boots King. His charge is simple, “Stop her!” Merit and her team – including Betty, a mothering office manager with a bad-ass attitude – struggle to stay alive, while they navigate a labyrinth of legal issues, and prove once again that you don’t mess with a Texas lady lawyer.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
MANNING WOLFE an author and attorney residing in Austin, Texas, writes cinematic-style, smart, fast-paced thrillers with a salting of Texas bullshit. The first in her series, featuring Austin Lawyer Merit Bridges, is Dollar Signs: Texas Lady Lawyer vs. Boots King. A graduate of Rice University and the University of Texas School of Law, Manning's experience has given her a voyeur's peak into some shady characters' lives and a front row seat to watch the good people who stand against them.
Cassandra's review- So I will start off by letting my readers know that this is not a family friendly book. I would highly recommend not letting youth get a hold of this at all. It is filled with funny and brash writing that is sure to please anyone with a taste for a thriller, but it is not a clean one.
