This week I am featuring another Kindle freebie I had bought long ago.

BLURB:  Judge Willa Carson is bullet proof – except when wild justice rules from the grip of a gun.

When a famous plastic surgeon’s decomposed body surfaces in Tampa Bay with a bullet in its head, Federal Judge Willa Carson’s “little sister” is caught in a high-stakes game of greedy lawyers, blackmail and deceit. Carly Austin knew the victim too well. Does she know too much about the killer, too? Before Willa discovers the answer, Carly disappears. Can Willa save Carly from herself and the murderous conspiracy? Or have they killed Carly, too?

Free-spirited Judge Wilhelmina Carson is quick, witty and stubborn. She finds nothing is what it seems in a world where attractive women with enough money are made, not born, and beauty can cost your life. Judge Willa debuts in this fast-paced mystery filled with great characters, humor and suspense.

DATE BOUGHT: 12/31/11

WHY I BOUGHT IT: I like strong female characters, and it looks like Judge Willa fits the bill. I'm also totally into murder mysteries. This book was originally titled Carly's Conspiracy. Here is the updated cover:

I'm a fan of the original cover. What do you think--first cover or second one? Have you read this book? If so, what did you think of it?

I think I prefer the first cover! It sounds like a good read. I don't usually gravitate toward murder mystery/thrillers, but I do love when the lead is a smart, strong professional woman!

This sounds quite exciting. Murder mysteries are one of my favourite genres so this sounds like one I'd like to pick up sometime. Hope you enjoy your read!
