Publisher's Summary

Jaime long ago gave up the desire to be loved. Now she only needs to be heard.

Jaime Nichols went to law school to find the voice she never had as a child, and her determination to protect girls and women in the path of harm drives her in ways both spoken and unspoken. As Jaime, now a criminal defense attorney, prepares to press charges against someone who wronged her long ago, she must face not only her demons but also the unimaginable forces that protect the powerful man who tore her childhood apart.

Chandler Bolton, a retired veteran, is tasked with helping a young victim who must testify in court - and along with his therapy dog, Aslan, he's up for the task. When he first meets Jaime, all brains, beauty, and brashness, he can’t help but be intrigued. As Chandler works to break through the wall Jaime has built around herself, the two of them discover they may have more to offer one another than they ever could have guessed - and that together, they may be able to help this endangered child.

This thrilling installment of the Hidden Justice series explores the healing power of resolution and the weight of words given voice. And as Jaime pursues delayed justice of her own, she unearths eternal truths that will change the course of her life.

Keeps you wondering

In book three of this series, Jamie finds herself with a new work path. As she has finally decided to step up to a wrong in her past, she finds herself with more backlash and peril than expected. She also finds herself in a new role as she helps out a young child and works with a neighbor and his therapy dog in helping the child.

I really liked seeing Jamie work through all that was going on and learning how to do what is best for others even when it doesn't work out the best for her.

Great book!!

Getting to know Jaime three this book was great! Seeing how Hayden and Emily had moved past their struggles was a nice tie in. The suspense in this story had me sitting on the edge of my seat.

Heartfelt story about a heartbreaking, but all too common, crime

Cara Putman took on a topic most prefer to leave buried and gave it the justice it deserves. Jaimie’s deep wounds from the abuse she suffered as an 8 year old have put her adult life in a rocky place. She sees herself as alone and imperfect-so flawed no one will want to be near her if they learn the truth. Even among her closest friends she can’t fully engage in their camaraderie. She just can’t trust them to be there when she needs them since no one stood up for her when she was young and needed someone. Helping others and the desire to right wrongs and give others the voice she didn’t have, show the woman Jaimie has become. When she takes steps to bring her attacker to justice, she finds out just who she has become and sees the person her friends have known her as all along. Throw in a hunky military man with the same desire to help others as her and you have the pieces for the intricately crafted story that is Delayed Justice.

Not bad but won’t be re-reading

Despite there being numerous ‘romantic suspense’ cliches and some cringe-worthy lines, I enjoyed listening this installation in the Hidden Justice series.

Not Putman’s best by any measure but pleasurable all the same. I think she handled the sexual abuse storyline admirably but found the hero Chandler verged on lustful and I grew tired of the constant descriptions of both his and the protagonist’s physical attributes.

The narration was great but I won’t be re-listening to this. However, I’d still like to give her another try to find out what happens to some of the secondary characters.
