Book Description

Miami in June: it's raining, it's pouring, but the life of criminal defense attorney Mary Magruder Katz is anything but boring-especially when she gets caught up in a whirlwind of three different cases. Judge Liz Maxwell's job, sanity, and reputation are at stake, and she needs Mary to ferret out wrongdoing in Miami's courts. Solving this case won't just mean going out on a limb; it will mean risking life and limb. Luis Corona, a family friend of Mary's boyfriend, Carlos, needs help with a legal matter that, to Mary's horror, turns out to be a terrorism charge. And this case will leave some catastrophic damage-and unwelcome notoriety-in its wake. Just when Mary thought things couldn't get worse, Carlos gets in his own nasty legal quandary-one that could cost him everything. Three cases. One Mary. One torrential downpour of turmoil. Can she weather the storm? Ride out the cold front that settles over her once-hot romance? Salvage what remains of her-and her clients'-reputations? For Mary Magruder Katz, this month's forecast calls for trouble.

My Review

Justice in June is a fun summer mystery read. I have always enjoyed zany mystery stories such as those written by Janet Evanovich...Justice in June is just as zany!

The author, Barbara Levenson, is a lawyer so you know that the legal information and court scenes are accurate. It really does rain a lot in Florida in June...I was just does.  

Criminal defense attorney Mary Magruder Katz is working on three cases and is very overwhelmed as she is being pulled in different directions. She is defending a judge in a tricky case...and then there is her boyfriend Carlos pushing her help his cousin Luis who is somehow caught up in a national security threat.

Fun book. Great beach read!
