      First off I want to say that I have marked this under my "Ghost" shelf and "cheating hero" shelf, though the ghost didn't play that big of a part in the story (she didn't solve any misteries,talk to anyone and barly made an apperence). Not being real big on the ghost theme myself I was kinda worried when it first made an apperence however I think that Karen Robards played nice and light. The cheating part was in thier past and the h had walked in on the H kissing another woman, to some people re [...]

      So far the best book I have read by KR. It is riveting from beginning to end. I was not expecting the who dunnit person to be who it was. The ending was a great finale!

      Wanted to give this 1/2 star! The story advertised sounded really good, and it was registered under the mystery/thriller genre. It's also the second book featuring the main characters, but while it refers to the first story it is not necessary to read it. As it was the audio book I knew I was up for 11 hours and 22 minutes, pity the story advertised didn't actually get started until I had suffered through 10 hours and 50 minutes of crap. The main story line featured Jess (the heroine) constantly [...]

      Had I known this would be a cheesy, and poorly written, romance. Stuck on vacation. I curse supermarket novels everywhere!

      Narrated by Angela Dawe After listening to an hour of the newly released Justice, I was wondering more about the TSTL behavior of heroine Jessica Ford than the plot. She’s in the Secret Service’s witness protection program (of sorts) after witnessing the murder of the First Lady. Now that she is established with her new identity, she only takes the slightest of precautions and has more an attitude of “Why are you making me do this?” than anything else. But I digress because this is one g [...]

      Yorumuma öncelikle kitabı sevdiğimi söyleyerek başlamak istiyorum. Zaten puanımdan da anlaşılıyordur diye tahmin ediyorum. :D İçeriğe girmiyorum arka kapak yazısı konuyu gayet net özetliyor zaten.Kitap ile ilgili sevdiğim noktalar:1- Sonuna kadar sürükledi, yani yarısında beni sıkmadı (çok şükür)2- Yazarın yazım tarzını çok beğendim. Keşke daha çok kitabı çevrilse.3- Karakterleri sevdim. Özellikle Jess'i. Güçlü ve akıllı bir kadındı çünkü.Kitap ile [...]

      This book opens with Jessica Ford, the heroine of 'Pursuit,' in unofficial witness protection by the Secret Service. This consists of Jessica dying her hair blonde, swapping her glasses for contacts, and changing her name to Jessica Dean and continuing to practice law at a high profile law firm in her home town of Washington D.C.Really?Why not just put a target on her back and shout, "Come get her!" through a bullhorn from the top of the Washington Monument. But you know that won't happen. We ca [...]

      This one was disappointing. I really enjoyed the previous book about Jess and Mark (Pursuit) but this kind of ruined it for me. They were broken up at the start (which took away the happy ending from Pursuit) and even though they get back together I now have absolutely no faith they will stay that way. I read romance because i want a HEA not realism. And I can't get past why they broke up. I have no faith in Mark. The author tried to make it like it was mostly Jess's issues that were keeping the [...]

      I won this book in a give away. Who in what government agency was out to kill Jess for being in the car when the first lady was killed? There seemed to be so much back story that I wondered if this was second in a series.I finished the book but I had to make myself. I was frustrated with Jess for being so smart and so stupid at the same time. She knows someone might want to kill her but she is not going to take any procautions no matter what.And what was the ghost part doing in this book?Was I [...]

      Mark just did not do it for me I really could not feel his love for her and seriously that excuse for kissing his ex was just dumb I can't believe that at some point he wouldn't cheat on her again' not a true hero for me

      Criminal attorney, Jessica Ford, finds herself in danger as she delves into the disappearance of two women. Ex-boyfriend, Secret Service Agent Mark Ryan, shows up to keep her safe and together they solve another mystery with it's basis in politics. Along the way their broken relationship is healed and karma gets a little help.

    12. Sarah Salvaggio on said:

      There was not much of a romance or mystery to this book. I guessed the who done it prior to being half way through the book. Would NOT recommend but since I was able to get through the book (unlike others) it receives at least 2 starts.

    13. Sandy on said:

      Basically a good story. The distracting romance was over and he top as was the feisty stupidity of the heroine. Doing dumb, dangerous things because she needs to prove she can take care of herself has never been a good forwarder or a plot as far as I'm concerned.

    14. Sylvia Doughty on said:

      Great book and keeps you hanging on almost the end before the twist comes in for "justice" super read !!!

    15. Danielle on said:

      I enjoyed the book, but felt it was kinda boring and caught myself skimming.

    16. Rhonda on said:

      Good tale and a decent mystery with some good action, but it was a departure from the first book. There was less action and the author decided to add a ghost to the story.

    17. Nancy Methven on said:

      I loved the first Jess and Mark book. This one was still great, but not as exciting as the first one until the end.

    18. Woowho on said:

      Audiobook - the first book was ok and I picked this up as a light read as I knew the characters, but while the first book halfway worked, this one is an epic fail, just too unbelievable. And I can't stand the girl gets guy in the first book, but hates guy in the second, and only a few months have passed in book land. Just give this sequel a pass as you walk on by.

    19. Christine on said:

      First thing's first: This book is a sequel, but not to a book that called for a sequel. It's the sequel to a book I basically liked, and has managed to ruin any fond memories I might have harbored. Jessica and Mark had a nice little adventure in Pursuit after Jessica survived a car crash that killed the first lady of the US. They ran away from some bad guys, nearly got killed a few times, had some steamy sex, and got together at the end. It wasn't brilliant, but I enjoyed it.Then I Picked up thi [...]

      "Justice" is a follow up of sorts to 2009's "Pursuit". We first met Jess and Mark in that book when Jess was the sole survivor of a car accident involving the First Lady of the US. You can read this book as a stand alone but I would suggest reading "Pursuit" first to get a handle on why exactly Jess and Mark believe that she is in danger in this book. I enjoyed this one more than I did "Pursuit".Because of the events in "Pursuit" Jess is supposed to be keeping a low profile. She is in the Secret [...]

    24. Danna on said:

      I read Justice because I really enjoyed one of Robards's other novels--Shattered--which surprised me, because from the cover it looked like a very trashy book (and I didn't think the book was trashy at all!). However, I was mostly disappointed by Justice, which was the quintessential trashy womens' novel. I would love to try and do a count of how many times Robards describes character Mark Ryan's chest as "broad" or "wide." My head was screaming, "give me a break!" the whole time I was reading t [...]

      Justice begins with a woman dying, two young runaways being the only witnesses, and an unexpected conclusion to a rape trial. Jess is a young, hard-working lawyer that is moving up in the ranks of the law firm where she works as she has just won a high profile case. But instead of celebrating Jess is trying to figure out why the prosecution's main witness recanted her story on the stand. With the help of her ex-boyfriend, Mark Ryan, Jess begins to investigate more into the case that she has just [...]

    26. Jeane on said:

      This is a follow up to Pursuit. Jessica Ford is the only survivor of an accident that killed theFirst Lady and was being protected by the Secret Service since the people who caused the death of the First Lady might be after Jessica. She changed her name to Jessica Dean,dyed her hair and got contact lenses. This was the first implausible thing to me. That's not much disguise at all,especially when you refuse to leave D.C. and then go to work for the very elite legal firm of Ellis Hayes. How could [...]

      This is Robards' second book in the Jessica Ford series. The story line is similar to the first: somebody wants Jessica Ford dead. In the first book, Jessica is protected by Secret Service Agent Mark Ryan, and along the way of unraveling the mystery in the first book, Jessica and Mark fall in love.In the second book, we learn that Jessica and Mark are no longer together, but because someone (again) wants Jessica dead, Mark is there to protect her once again. I admit that I did not care for the a [...]

      This book is absolutely gripping! It's only my second Karen Robards and I'll definitely be reading more!Jessica Ford, a criminal lawyer, is under Secret Service protection, as she was the only witness to the First Lady of the US being killed in a car accident, deemed suspicious. But she refuses to 'go into hiding' choosing instead to change her appearance and get on with her life.
