We have our main character, Kat McCall, who might be the stupidest heroine I’ve seen in a while. In Justice for Sara, we’re introduced to Katherine “Kat” McCall who returns back to her small town of Liberty, Louisiana, ten years after the brutal death of her older sister.
Now for the bad While she’s looking to have a brand new start for her bakery business, old friends and foes make her hard on her. I was so blindsided by the end. A really brilliant read that I couldn’t put down till I’d finished it.
I would have personally texted Kat that San Francisco may have been a better location And the last one? First things first, now depending which cover you pick up this book is written under two different titles – the first is the book I had which was “Don’t Look Back”the second which we also have in our library just to confuse patrons is “Justice for Sara”.
But there are some demons you have to face, and here Kat stands up to fight the battle to get Justice for Sara. She keeps doing shockingly moronic things all through the book. The cast of suspects is unique and entertaining, and the small-town setting has an atmospheric quality that ramps up the tension. Kat has an ally in Detective Luke Tanner, son of the former Liberty police chief, but he may be her only one. Aug 17, Suspense Magazine rated it it was amazing.
It starts with Katherine McCall returning to her hometown, the scene of the crime so to speak, where she was wrongly accused and acquitted for murdering her sister 10 years before. One night Kat’s cottage is attacked by an arsonist; the destruction’s relatively minor.

Refresh and try again. Put this or any of her books in your rotation you will not be disappointed! This book was really well-written, but more than that it was spinndler unpredictable, something a lot of bestseller mystery novels sort of lack in these days. Aug 27, John rated it foe was ok. Except, can we really believe the cops would, after an arson attack, just all go home and leave the house unattended so that any souvenir hunter could grab what they wanted or, of course, the arsonist could return and finish the job off?
I also loved that the chapters were short because it makes it easier to stop for stuff like well With a couple of red-herrings and a bit of romantic interest. The “past” chapters are written focusing on the s;indler of view of the different characters involved in the drama, which gives the readers a good chunk of information about them.
It’s a bit overdramatic at times but overall it’s a really powerful book. Ten years later the town she returns to hasn’t changed much with suspicions running deep and those a Kat McCall has returned to her home town Liberty, Louisiana. Thanks Vicki for the recommendation.

Many elements were so improbable But all of those are at best done in a mediocre way here, except for the romance which is actually right down dumb. Sep 09, Deanna rated it really liked it.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The resolution of the case, while obvious to the reader, comes out of nowhere for the protagonist, and the twist after the twist is sadly very foreseeable too.
The author seems to think that “her parents died when she was young!! I read this book in less than a day. This book will have you trying to figure out who the killer is, with the turn of each page.
I did enjoy this book and the characters but I guessed soon into the story who the guilty parties were…although there was a bit of an unexpected revelation at the end that I never expected. Forgive me for that one. Would she leave Liberty to all the hatred or would she find justice for Sara?
Inspite of my list of dislikes with this one, there were things I felt that were done well, so I will go with 3 stars. Learn more about Amazon Giveaway. The story went back and forth between the past and who was doing what and justife they could be the killer and the present as Kat stirs up the past looking for her sister’s killer.
I really liked Kat right from the start. I kept asking myself, “WHY?
In fact, only one man—acting chief and the son of the sheriff—is interested in the truth. As she digs into the past, investigating the day’s surrounding her sister’s death, Kat begins to learn that the search for the truth has put her in the murder’s path and that the cost of justice may be too high.
By the time that I got to the end I was just glad to be done with this one.
I always feel a little stab of sadness when I read a book that has a compelling premise, but it ends up having a disappointing delivery. I’m a recent Erica Spindler fan and have been catching up on her novels.
