a matter of trust review

"A Matter of Trust" by Lis Wiehl is a novel about Mia, a prosecuting attorney, who is newly widowed and raising two kids on her own.  This is the first in the Mia Quinn series.  It is a spin off of the Triple Threat Mysteries.  In this book, Mia is trying to solve a possible double murder of two fellow attorneys and attempting to prosecute a bullying-resulting in suicide case. 
Mia is a much better attorney than she is a parent.  I wouldn't say she is much of a thinker when it comes to parenting.  This is my least favorite of Wiehl's books; however, I really like her books, so it isn't really bad.  The part when Mia has her son help her with one of the murder cases, seems to take things to a ridiculous level.  Wiehl could have rewritten that to make Mia's parenting skills seem less horrifying.  As far as the writing, the plot, the character development, and the twists and turns, this book is pretty good..  Because of the whole "son helping with murder case" thing, which kinda ticked me off, I would have to give this book a C+, even though it did all make more sense in the end.  I received this book for free from
