"Locke, herself a lawyer, convincingly depicts nuances of class, race, and the law. Her heroine's strong first-person voice bodes well for future Cynthia Jakubek outings." —Publishers Weekly
"A good read from a first-time writer who uses her education and background in law to her advantage—and to the reader’s overall satisfaction." —New York Journal of Books
"Cyn, with her family, fiancé, boss, clients, and colleagues, is so likable, readers will consider her an imaginary friend." —Booklist
