    “When He seems most hidden, He is most present.”

    Y’all. Jaime’s story undid me. Maybe because of the current news headlines. Maybe because of the tie-ins to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Aslan. But definitely because Putman has woven together a story of a woman finding her voice and using it to fight for justice for those who can’t yet speak up.

    Jaime may compare Chandler to Captain America (and you won’t hear me complain about that visual) but she is a true superhero in her

    “When He seems most hidden, He is most present.”

    Y’all. Jaime’s story undid me. Maybe because of the current news headlines. Maybe because of the tie-ins to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Aslan. But definitely because Putman has woven together a story of a woman finding her voice and using it to fight for justice for those who can’t yet speak up.

    Jaime may compare Chandler to Captain America (and you won’t hear me complain about that visual) but she is a true superhero in her own right. To have risen above the heartbreaking abuse in her childhood – and the emotional isolation it created – to achieve not only great personal success but also solid friendships, a tender heart, and a fun sense of humor is inspiring to me. And then to take on the powerful man who abused her, just when he is in the public eye as never before… her courage is something to aspire to in my own life. Even though I have not experienced the abuse that Jaime suffered, we all have moments where we stand at the crossroads of ‘speak up’ and ‘stay silent’. I hope I have the courage that she showed to speak up when needed – and, conversely, to stay silent when needed.

    Chandler… blissful sigh. The Captain America comparisons are not far off. This military vet is an all-around good guy with a protective heart and a faithful Golden Retriever named Aslan (which, as an aside, is totally what I want to name a golden retriever, should i ever get one). His instincts are spot-on as he gets to know Jaime and begins to see the hurt she’s carried inside for far too long. Balancing his attraction and growing feelings for her with the need to make sure she is protected – and to patiently and compassionately work through her honest faith questions with her – definitely shows off his Captain America side quite nicely...

    Bottom Line: I loved the journey that Jaime and Chandler take toward God, justice, and wholeness in this latest installment in the Hidden Justice series. It’s not a light-hearted read, to be sure, but there are moments of humor at just the right times along the way. The references to The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe made my bookish heart happy – and the way Putman used this book in Jaime’s life is just perfect. Besides being a great legal thriller, this is a story of courage and hope even when God seems absent, knowing that He is in fact closer than the air we breathe and grieving with us. Putman tackles tough questions and does so with grace and authenticity. A great addition to the series!

    Whew, this one was my favorite of the series so far! Going in I got worried because of the tragedy in Jamie's past and how heavy a subject that would be (sexual abuse by someone in her childhood). First of all I was impressed of how perfectly Cara Putman got the emotions and the situation down to wring my heart, and yet stayed away from the tiny details that would have done no more than gross me out and make me take a break from the reading. Excellent balance there, that left me thinkin

Excellent balance there, that left me thinking of Jamie's situation and feeling her pain without having to get buried under sordid and sensational word pictures.

    The thriller portion itself was full of twists and turns, including a case where Jamie gets to really put her heart to work to get a child protected.

    Just so much to love in this one, overall!

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free review copy. No favorable review was required.

    Putman finished this series with the best book of all IMHO. Focusing on sexual abuse of children, Putman deals with touchy subject matter in a beautiful way leaving any details left unspoken but showing the depth of the pain left in the soul of children who are subjected to this as well as the immense guilt felt by parents who have somehow not known it was happening.

    Intense from start to finish and filled with amazing characters as well as the wonderful group of women lawyers who have stood by

    Intense from start to finish and filled with amazing characters as well as the wonderful group of women lawyers who have stood by one another through law school and life after. This novel stars Jaime as the main character. Abused by her uncle as a child, she now feels she has the strength to finally confront him through legal channels; but little does she know that as a possible next general in the Navy he will not go down without a battle. Chandler aka Captain America was definitely the perfect hero to stand behind Jaime as she deals with the battle for her job, her life, and her sanity. And the sweetest character of all was Chandler's comfort dog, Aslan, who helped Tiffany through legal testifying that no child should ever have to endure.

    Filled with suspense, romance, legal intrigue, spiritual growth, and prayer, Putman concluded this series with a mesmerizing book.

    I have been waiting on book three and it did not disappoint. You have to read this whole series.

    FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and Thomas Nelson. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.

    Mrs. Putman must have a deep well of courage to have written this book. It isn’t an easy topic. Sexual abuse never is simple. Not only did she broach a difficult theme, but she handled it with a delicate and considerate yet reality-bearing hand. Her approach to the abuse felt masterful. It’s tough to balance the stark

    FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and Thomas Nelson. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.

    Mrs. Putman must have a deep well of courage to have written this book. It isn’t an easy topic. Sexual abuse never is simple. Not only did she broach a difficult theme, but she handled it with a delicate and considerate yet reality-bearing hand. Her approach to the abuse felt masterful. It’s tough to balance the stark reality of sexual abuse and its victims and predators with the grace of salvation. Yet, that’s precisely what this author has done.

    The two-perspective approach on the abuse—from a silent victim and one who has already found her voice—was brilliant, as it showed that both types of victims must pair courage with truth to see justice done here on earth. Living out the reality this book portrays takes guts and moxie, and I hope any man, woman, or child who finds themselves a victim will seek out help in order to obtain justice and complete healing.

    Another aspect of this book that pleased my heart was that the so-called “little people” of the story (the victim, the attorneys who didn’t presume to stand a chance, etc.) weren’t afraid to stand up to big-name bullies (bosses, generals, senators, etc.). This is something that is reflective of today’s society, where big-named bullies (actors, sports stars, politicians, etc.) think they own the world and can push us little people around just to get what they want, whether that be to abuse someone, win a championship, star in the next summer blockbuster, or obtain the political seat of their choosing. This book shows that those bullies don’t always win in the end.

    The theme of “you’re not alone” was the perfect companion to come alongside the brashness of the abuse. I think it’s important for people who are being bullied or abused to know they aren’t alone. It’s crucial that those facing “big bullies” in work, school, or other aspects of life know they can keep reaching for truth and justice. They don’t have to let those bullies beat down their spirit, even if they beat down their body. Each victim, every person is important. Every person matters. God’s love can keep a victim’s spirit intact through the pain and help that person become an overcomer who can find true healing.

    It isn’t always an easy battle, breaking free from abuse. This book reflects that well. The journey Jaime took toward faith in this story reveals that the struggle to believe that God cares in the midst of our worst pain is completely real and valid. But, y’all, He does care. Completely, wholly, supremely. Keep fighting for that belief until you find that it’s true for you too.

    Something that’s very clear to me, after having read this book, is that the author has a heart for pain and healing in people. She had my eyes misting over several times, because Jaime’s pain was so raw and real and believable. Also, her friends’ caring love toward her, how they chose to stand with her and be her support system—whether she liked it or not, at times—was so exquisite that the emotions bubbled up until I was dry-sobbing (because the tears refused to fall; they were there!). I already knew Mrs. Putman could pull my emotions into the story (she’s done that many a time for me, through her previous books), but this book, this journey was next-level awesome and one I’ll definitely revisit down the road.

    This book is an incredible look at how the pain of sexual abuse spiderwebs out into every portion of a person’s life, including their outlook and daily habits. I hope it will open many people’s eyes and stop abuse in its tracks.

    A couple more notes:

    The inclusion of a comfort service dog was spectacular and eye-opening. I loved Aslan and how he was able to be a comfort to certain people in the story.

    I loved that neither of the leads used nicknames for each other. This was a refreshing change from the norm in Christian fiction right now.

    Brandy alcohol was mentioned once by a bad guy. I was very happy the leading good guys did not partake in alcohol. This, too, was refreshing.

    Cara Putman has created another amazing novel. She filled this one with her trademark twists and turns and kept this reader very hooked from start to finish! I found myself on the edge of my seat on more than one occasion with this story.

    Jaime and Chandler were beautifully chiseled. They were perfect for their roles and really became a part of me as I followed along side them. I felt their relationship grow like it was my own, I felt their hearts beating like mine as they helped the victim. And

I felt their relationship grow like it was my own, I felt their hearts beating like mine as they helped the victim. And Aslan....oh how my heart loved that therapy dog! Of course, I'm a sucker for all animals!

    Once again, 5 stars to the talented Mrs. Putman. Her story will take you on a journey you won't soon forget. The pages turned long into the night for me, and before I knew it, Jaime and Chandler's story came to an end. Definitely recommending this one with hats off and two thumbs up.

    Another exciting legal thriller from Cara Putman! Once again, one of her novels seems to have anticipated current headlines, and Jaime’s story gives us great insight into victims of abuse and the troubles they face when seeking justice. Jaime and Chandler are intriguing and well matched, and their romance is tender and realistic. With plenty of twists and turns, the story kept me flipping pages. Another winner!

    This book just absolutely gutted me. If you're looking for a light, easy read, maybe put this one on the shelf for a while until you are ready for a book that speaks to real life difficult situations.

    This novel seems to have literally been taken right from the headlines. These issues are at the forefront of the news just this week. It delves into the hard questions--why did she wait so long to report the abuse? How believable is she, and what proof does she have?

    I had so much compassion

    I had so much compassion and empathy for Jaime as she navigated difficulty from every side. Learning how to have courage when she didn't feel as if any existed. The author's use of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe as a teaching tool is so meaningful and will touch every reader, regardless of background and experiences. We all need to know that we have a God who fights for us, who isn't tame.

    The relationship between Chandler and Jaime is portrayed so gently and beautifully as well. The friendship that develops into something more feels right with this story, as difficult as the situations dealing with past abuse are to handle at times.

    My only slight quibble with this book is that I felt the ending was a little abruptly tied up, but overall this is such a fantastic novel I can overlook that one small thing.

    I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book, all opinions are my own.

    DELAYED JUSTICE is book three in the Hidden Justice series by Cara Putman. This book deals with sexual abuse a topic that so many deal with today. So many keep quiet afraid to say anything. This is a very powerful and intense story that is bound to capture your attention the whole way through this story.
