How far would you go to protect a beloved family member from the truth? When Kyle Cameron, protagonist of Blood Relations, discovers that his well-respected and prominent lawyer father, Jake, is having an affair with one of the beautiful female lawyers in the firm, he comes up with a radical plan to protect his fragile mother from learning the truth. But when that beautiful lawyer is found brutally murdered, and Jake is the primary suspect, Kyle now has the daunting task of defending a father who has little faith in his legal skills.
Blood Relations by Edward Cohen and Kathy Cohen offers a complex, but not unrealistic plot that grips readers from beginning to end, and just when readers think they know who actually killed the beautiful Laura ... surprise, surprise! But as engaging as the plot and trying to figure out who did the deed are the personalities of the key characters. Kyle is forever trying to meet his father’s expectations, to earn his respect, not to mention his love. There is ongoing competition between father and son, and what Kyle lacks in legal skills, he makes up for by bedding as many women as he can. So expect some scenes steamier and stickier than the New Orleans humidity.
Being a legally based story, there are some interesting insights into how the justice system works, along with how much is not as it seems, or should be. This is the world of the wealthy: money, power and reputations are always at stake and murderers aren’t the only criminals. If Blood Relations sounds like your kind of reading, don’t hesitate to pick up this novel: you won’t be able to put it down.
