Rosa Parks Pageg Turners Book Club
Event Location: Bertha Pleasant Williams Library - Rosa Parks Branch
Intended Audience: Adult
Description:  Feisty criminal attorney Jessica Ford has done her best to comply with the orders of the Secret Service's unofficial witness protection program ever since she became the lone witness to the First Lady's murder. She changed her name, dyed her dark hair blonde, and traded her sturdy black-rimmed glasses for contact lenses. Unfortunately, winning her first high-profile case for prestigious Washington, D.C., law firm Ellis Hayes, and subsequently landing her face all over the news, is not exactly keeping a low profile. Or so says hunky Secret Service agent Mark Ryan, whose newest assignment—despite Jess's stubborn protests—is keeping her safe at all costs. It just so happens he's also her ex-boyfriend.
The trial earns Jess a permanent spot on the firm's elite legal defense team, replacing an associate who eloped suddenly and never came back. It's the chance of a lifetime. But Jess's mind has raced with questions from the moment the prosecution's star witness shocked the courtroom with an electrifying revelation involving the handsome son of a powerful U.S. senator. Was the pretty, young mother intimidated into changing her story on the stand? Why will she not return Jess's calls? Did Jess's ambitious predecessor on the case really just abandon her successful career? Or did both women mysteriously disappear? - Dust Jacket
