    Yet another fabulous legal suspense novel from Rachel Dylan!Both Mia Shaw and Noah Ramirez were very interesting and compelling characters. While I didn't connect with them quite as much as I did with previous characters in the Atlanta Justice series, I still really enjoyed their story. The opening scene immediately grabs you and doesn't let go until the end. Filled with tension and action, the suspense doesn't let up - even when you think the story is over.

The opening scene immediately grabs you and doesn't let go until the end. Filled with tension and action, the suspense doesn't let up - even when you think the story is over. I greatly enjoy all the legal details Dylan includes in this series. Honestly, I've learned more about the justice system from this series than I ever did in high school. Dylan explains how the system works in a way laymen can understand, but without seeming to talk down to her readers. I also enjoyed the romance in Breach of Trust. It plays a very back-seat role in comparison to the rest of the storyline, which I appreciate. Overall, Breach of Trust was a great end to the Atlanta Justice series, and I greatly enjoyed it! Recommended for lovers of good legal romantic suspense!Recommended for ages 16+ due to violence and action.FTC disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.

Noah's character was absolutely my favorite, and I fell in love with him so hard in this story! Mia's character was incredibly luck to have him protecting her!Ms. Dylan's talent for intricately weaving a legal thriller into an unforgettable read is amazing. She does a fantabulous job at research, and blending it with her awesome messages of hope, love, forgiveness and mercy.This is the third book in her ATLANTA JUSTICE series. I highly recommend it be read in the series, and not as a stand alone. The full effect of this author's talent and her amazing characters that become family is best felt reading the books in the entire series. Ms. Dylan has once again created a phenomenally amazing, heart-pounding story of edge-of-your-seat suspense. Definitely giving this one a high 4 star rating and two thumbs up.*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.*

This girl has nine lives for sure!I had no idea who the bad guy was and really got to like the minor characters in this one (Noah's friend and the Owen lawyer and even Ty). Mia's friends Kate and Sophie are in this one also but it's mostly the other lawyers. I even choked up a little at the end for McDonald.I truly LOVED every court scene and lawyer meetings, the lingo and procedures felt so authentic and spot on! I didn't consider this to be a page turner, but I definitely wanted to see what happened next and nothing was predictable. There is plenty of betrayal and as the title says, a definite breach of trust, but no one is as they seem to be and it's such a great read. Highly recommend for new and seasoned readers, such a great series!I was given a copy from the publisher via NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review.

She ends up taking a case after the death of her friend and colleague that leads her down a twisted and tangled web of corporate schemes. Noah, our hero, is a private investigator specializing in technology and gets involved in Mia's case when his ex-ATF buddy gets accused of murder. Noah is the steady, dependable, faithful sort who becomes Mia's rock as the case and her life unravel quickly. It's also interesting to see two other perspectives in the plot - one from Owen, the general council of the corporation that Mia is defending, and the other from Ty, the criminal defense lawyer who takes Noah's friend's case pro bono. Will there be future books about Owen and/or Ty?!?! We can only hope....I received a copy of the book from Bethany House Publishers and was under no obligation to post a positive review.

And by the halfway point I was about jumping out of my skin in anxious anticipation of what was to come.And my emotions were all over the place. I got so seething mad at injustice -- whether it was a corporate bigwig or a nasty coworker....gah --- I was right there ready to pull some punches on Mia's behalf! Not to mention the subtle undercurrents of romance that can't possibly come to anything -- not with Noah and Mia so solidly on opposite sides of a murder investigation. He's passionately positive that his friend is not a killer while she's just as passionate about seeing the man prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law -- which might mean the death penalty! Angst anyone?What an adrenaline rush of a read!

The relationships between the characters were natural and we were kept up to date on Mia’s two friends as well as introduced to a few new characters. I am hoping some of them show up in a future novel. This was a very enjoyable foray into Atlanta and its justice system. * I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher on behalf of the author.

She writes a realistic story with just enough legal detail to keep the reader engaged. She blends the suspense and the romance together beautifully. I am so looking forward to much more from Rachel Dylan and highly recommend this book (and this series).

She knocked and yelled that she was there to take him out to dinner as planned. There was no way she would let his one year anniversary as a successful partner at the law firm they both work at, with out celebrating.When he did not answer the door she decided to try opening it even though she knew it would be locked so when it opened, she was very surprised & called out to Chase as she walked in. No answer. Then when she checked his bedroom... Noah Ramirez could not believe that his friend has been arrested for murder. He knows the man that David is and knows he would never commit murder but the evidence points at him & only him. With the death of Chase, Mia was asked to take over the LCI case, Lee Corporation International. It was a high profile case that was Chase's top priority, in preparing for the court case she begins to find and experience things that have her wondering if perhaps his death was tied to the case. Noah really wants to prove David's innocence and when Mia asks him to consult on the computer information he accepts and together they work to find the truth and in the process find each other. Mia and Noah believe that the Lord will be with them and guide them through this trial and answer their prayers to have a life in Him, together. This was the final book in the Atlanta Justice Series. Ms. Dylan never disappoints with exciting plots that grab you from the very beginning and characters you never want to say good bye to. She also weaves into the story that God always takes care of his children no matter how long or strong ones faith is. I am honored to have been blessed with an advance reader copy and thank Rachel Dylan for allowing me to participate.MLM

    I have been waiting to read Mia's stories since I read book one in this series. I knew there was a back story to her, more than she's let on in the past, and I was excited to find out what it was. Also, this is the one character that really didn't have faith, and I was anxious to see how Dylan would incorporate that into the story. While I don't want to give away details - Dylan did a wonderful job of showing her growth, but also remaining honest unlike most new Christians. I found this to be so I have been waiting to read Mia's stories since I read book one in this series. I knew there was a back story to her, more than she's let on in the past, and I was excited to find out what it was.

While I don't want to give away details - Dylan did a wonderful job of showing her growth, but also remaining honest unlike most new Christians. I found this to be so refreshing and probably the best part of the story. Okay, there were lots of good parts, but those really stuck out to me.Dylan continues to amaze me with her ability to keep the suspense going, and make me interested in courtroom activities. Like I think I want to go sign up to be a juror, even though that's not something you can do around here. She just makes it so intriguing, and you feel like you are in the courtroom with the characters. With romance and action in the mix, it's near impossible to put the book down.I have to admit, I wasn't really sure how this book was going to end up. I was pretty sure I had it all figured out, but Dylan added some nice twists that left me breathless. Even though Noah is probably my least favorite of the three guys (I mean they are all my favorites lol), I still enjoyed learning more about him. He and Mia both had issues to work through, which I think made them stronger as a couple. I actually like that they had differing views for different things during the story. It made their relationship more interesting, and the pull between them that much stronger. Once again Dylan delivers a riveting page turner. I have loved getting to know these characters and reading this series. I can't wait to see what's next! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review.

Even though this book is part of a series I feel it is definitely a stand alone. Packed full of edge of your seat suspense and a mystery with twists and turns that keeps you guessing until the end. I loved these complex characters. Mia is strong and well developed character. She works for a big law firm, but readily admits that it's not her ideal job. Yet, she still gives 100% to every case she's given. When she finds her friend brutally murdered she show real and raw emotions, but instead of revenge she seeks justice. Noah, former ATF agent, runs a private security firm with two close friends. Noah receives a phone call from a former agent who happened to save his life and asks for help. Noah and Mia are on a collision course, but for different reasons. Mia has accused/believes David McDonald killed her friend, but Noah is convinced he's innocent. I like that Noah is upfront with Mia about the fact he's looking for answers to prove David's innocence and will leave no stone uncovered. When Mia starts asking questions the case heats up and suddenly she and Noah find things much more complicated that they ever imagined. This book has elements of mystery, suspense, romantic tension, faith, and love. This is a great book and I would recommend to anyone who loves a suspense or mystery. **I received this book from the author via the publisher. I was not required to write a review.

If the legal talk and work is too complicated, readers like me who aren't very well versed in legal "stuff" will lose interest and be lost. This third and final book in the suspenseful Atlanta Justice Series revolves around corporate espionage, which doesn't sound too interesting to be honest. However, Dylan makes it interesting. I was fascinated by how and why some things happened in the book. These three books center on six people: three female friends who are all lawyers, and three guys who are all members of a security company. (Spoiler: the three guys get the girls). :) The male in this story is Noah, the tech expert of the company. The author used him to help work on the espionage case with his computer expertise, which also was interesting. Not only is the legal and courtroom parts of the book done well, but so is the suspense. Maybe I am wrong, but it seemed the suspense was ratcheted up even more in the third book than the other two...regardless, this suspense junkie loved those parts of the book and kept me turning the pages as fast as I could. I mentioned the guy getting the girl....so romance also plays a big part in the story, and it also was well done and not cheesy or gag inducing. (Hey, I am a bachelor!) And last, but not least, the Christian element. Mia is a fledgling Christian, and there were some interesting and thought provoking things that came up in discussions between her and Noah, a preacher's son who had not always lived his faith. This was a great conclusion to a very good series. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Trying to pay off her school loans she actually is at a large firm that pays well, but doesn't necessarily mean that she is doing what she wants.Then the unthinkable happens. Her good friend and associate, Chase, is brutally murdered. Mia finds his body and the intrigue starts. She is determined to see the man who killed Chase put on trial and convicted. But at the same time the law firm gives her control of the Corporate Case that Chase was working on. It is a Breach of Contract. But as she digs into the case she finds that there are some major problems of corporate espionage. The storyline will deal with issues of Trust, Forgiveness, Deceit, Truth and Honesty as well as Integrity. The author weaves a wonderful story but also deals with issues that each of us face in real life, just maybe not to this depth. At the same time Mia is struggling with her new faith, one that leaves her questioning the goodness of God.There are so many dialogue lines and issues that will keep you and your book club talking about this wonderful novel for weeks. I couldn't put it down and can't wait to talk to others about some of the issues that are addressed.Oh, and just when you think you know "Who did it," you realize that you were completely wrong. So, don't make assumptions until you completely finish the story.Enjoy!

    This book three in the Atlanta Justice Series was full of twists and turns. Two incidents that seem totally unrelated, or are they, bring lawyer Mia Shaw into grief, then anger and a case her firm gives her that puts her life in danger.This can be read as a stand-alone but I highly recommend the first two also.

Author and lawyer, Rachel Dylan, brings so much “to the table” with her expertise. There is lots of nail biting, heart thumping action to get the avid reader staying up late at night turning pages. And the best part is the surprise ending which I loved in the fact that I had the wrong culprit in mind, another plus for the author’s writing.Mia literally finds her close friend and colleague has been brutally murdered when she goes to his apartment. Noah is sure his friend and buddy whose being accused of the murder has been framed. They “lock horns” right at the start but the search for truth finds them both working together to unravel all the threads that have been so tangled together. But will they learn the truth before one or both of them have been killed? Tune in for the rest of the story!I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.

The story focus on Mia Shaw who practices corporate litigation. When Mia goes to Chase’s apartment looking forward to a celebratory dinner with him, she instead finds him brutally murdered. Now her world has been turned upside down and Mia’s faith is really being tested as she grapples through the aftermath.In addition to dealing with Chase’s murder, Mia is tapped to take over one of Chase’s biggest cases but finding what she needs proves to be difficult at best. Throughout the novel there are continuing threats on Mia’s life while handling a major case, grieving, and wrestling with her nightmares. Mia is a woman who is top notch in her field and is used to taking charge of her life, however with recent events Mia is finding that a real challenge.Mia is a tough cookie, but she has a heart of gold toward people. Mia is a young believer in the Lord and her faith is challenged. However, she has other friends whose faith and knowledge help her walk through the valley one day at a time. Mia has dated before, but the men seemed to be unable to care for her in a way she longs for regardless of her mother’s teachings about life, men and God.The whole series is engaging because it deals with the legal arena, but more so it shows how faith can be lived out in day-to-day interactions with other people and situations. If you read all three books, you will discover who Mia’s friends are and enjoy their stories as well. Rachel Dylan is a blooming author so watch for whatever she plans to share with audiences sometime in the future.Until then, read the first novel titled, Deadly Proof followed by Lone Witness before you enjoy A Breach of Trust. You don’t want to miss the suspenseful tales in this series!Note: I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book. The opinions shared in this review are solely my responsibility.

When the best friend of the accused turns out to be a mutual acquaintance, Mia agrees to keep an open mind, for it seems that security expert Noah Ramirez is capable of changing her opinion about many things. "Breach of Trust" is a thrilling legal suspense with meticulous attention to details which continually shift in and out of importance, giving its readers no clear picture of who they can trust. I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. The opinions stated are entirely my own.

Her characters are real with fast paced dialogue that keeps one reading well past their bed time!So grab a pitcher of sweet tea and settle in for a fantastic read!

    Like the others in this series, this is a great legal suspense novel. I love the authenticity in the details as Mia and her team wade through documents to prepare for trial; yet the details don’t ever bog the story down. The action is continuous and the plot moves along at a good pace. The danger increases as Mia gets closer to finding out the truth. There is a romance but it doesn’t get a lot of development.
