In Things are going to slide, Marilee Carson Cooper, daughter of a prominent southern family, teaches law and runs a law school legal aid clinic in the small Alabama town her family has inhabited for generations. But then things slip out of control. She is pregnant with her second child when her husband leaves her for another man. She loses a coveted job -- to her first love --that would ensure her financial security, and she is desperately trying to help a teen-age mother accused of murdering her baby.
Described by one reader as "smart chick-lit/mom-lit, law-lit", and another as "the kind of book that makes you keep reading long after you meant to turn the light out."
This is a lovely story of a pregnant lady who teaches law and runs a law school legal aid clinic and trying to deal with family life as well, until the position she wanted the most was given to someone who she thought she wouldn't see again. . .her first love Dwight Hurley now chair of the clinic, Marilee must pull herself together to try and work together with Dwight and put the past between them behind her, Can she do that?
I really want to thank Rangeley Wallace for being a tremendous author and also giving me the chance to review her book, Also to thank Sharon Goodwin from Fiction Addiction Book Tours offering me this chance to part of this tour.
I really enjoyed this story, at first I kinda struggled because I don't really understand American Law so wasn't sure If I could continue to read but I'm so glad I did, It ended up being a fabulous read which had me feeling very sorry for Marilee at times but also happy when she has her second child hehe, a happy ending for her.
I very disliked Dean Sue Scalon at the clinic, was always being very spiteful with Marilee and felt like being very discriminate against Marilee for being pregnant and trying to shove her out of the company but was so happy right at the end, hehe Karma always comes and bites you in the bum ;) tehe!
Things do slide down hill for Marilee but she always has her loving sister Dede and family to help pick her back up. Just glad things do ride back up for Marilee at the end, she deserved it.
I don't want to give too much away from the story but I do think everyone could enjoy this book, Please don't be put off with American Law if you don't understand, You will kind of get the understanding if you carry on reading.
The writing really did flow very well so you can understand and follow all the characters easily enough. A MUST read I say!
