Nolan made a big mistake on a previous case at Nash Security and Investigations and he’s surprised he still has a job. But instead of getting fired Nolan gets handed a huge case to work when attorney Lila Garcia seeks out the help of the agency. Lila is fighting for her client that was charged in the murder of her own son and needs help solving the case to try to free her client from prison.
Reclaim is the third book in the Recovered Innocence series by Beth Yarnall. Each book in the series features a new couple and could be read as a standalone novel. The earlier characters and some events get brief mentions in the later books but a reader wouldn’t have to know the events to enjoy the current book.
I have read all of the books in the Recovered Innocence series and enjoyed the fast paced and flawed characters. The relationships develop while the couples in each are investigating the current case going on at Nash Security.
With Reclaim I think though this read almost became too much of a sameness with yet another flawed couple forming from an investigation at the agency. The case was interesting enough but not really one that jumped out and grabbed me either. But with Nolan and Lila I think I was a bit turned off when the video taping without knowledge came into play in the story so I didn’t really get behind this relationship quite as much.
I will say I did like the creativity behind Lila’s compulsion towards the end of the story. Something that you don’t read often about but really is a problem so it was a nice little twist there.
Overall, an OK addition to the series but I enjoyed the earlier couples/cases in the series a bit more.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
