Book Review: Warrant for Love

My Rating 5 out of 5 stars
Available on Amazon in paperback and on Kindle
Life for Paul sounds like your typical country song. He comes from a broken home, his wife is divorcing him, he's got no place to live, he's losing custody of his son, and his sergeant, who's sleeping with his wife, is a loud-mouthed braggart who won't let up on him – not even at work.
Leanne's caught her (now) ex cheating on her again, but before she can give him the what-for, she's wrongfully arrested for soliciting – by Paul and his partner. One thing leads to another and things could be looking up for Paul, except for Leanne's friends – quarrelling mom Nicky and financial goddess Jade – have it out for her ex.
Leanne wants closure, Paul wants a home, and Nicky and Jade want revenge. Blackmail, lies, adultery, entrapment. Will it all work out in the end or will Paul uphold the law? It sounds like he needs a Warrant for Love.
My Review: Another amazing book by Sheryl Browne. I'd like to say this one is my favorite, though I suspect my favorite Sheryl Browne book is whichever one I've most recently finished.
Warrant for Love has three love stories wrapped up in one neat package. Lee, Nicky, and Jade are three friends who are willing to do anything for each other and God help any man who messes with one, because he will surely incur the wrath of all three. The story centers primarily around Lee, a single mother who is down on her luck financially and romantically. She meets Paul, a cop who has problems of his own. Nicky, a married mother of three, has troubles of her own - a teenage daughter intent of driving her nuts and a husband who has become emotionally distant. And, then there's Jade, a gorgeous, successful business woman, who guards her own heart as carefully as she watches over her friends.
The plot is complex and fast-paced as the story moves from the lead female characters to Paul and back again. As typical in a Sheryl Browne novel, there is tremendous character development, heartache, humor, and love. The characters (from the main characters to love interests to the children in their lives) are multifaceted and believable. I absolutely loved this book.
