Hillari's Head by Tim Stutler
I just finished this book today.
I am a huge Law & Order junkie and have been since the original L&O started in the 1990s! So I was really looking forward to reading this book. I love stories that have characters who overcome something in their life, are easy to read, cause a "say what" moment, and have characters that make you both laugh and cry. And to top it off, if I come across a book that has ALL of that PLUS has a Law & Order feel to it, then I'm hooked. And that is what Hillari's Head did!
Tim Stutler did a great job writing this book! Hillari's Head is easy to read, hard to put down, is funny and touches your heart!
There will be no spoilers in my review because you really need to read this book! Instead I will talk about the characters. The first character you are introduced to is Kristina. What Kristina goes through as a young child and young adult is heart breaking. After she moves to California, she becomes intrigued with one of her neighbors. The author does a great job describing this neighbor! As you read the story, you can easily picture Judge Monday! You are then introduced to Gideon "Duck" Ducker, a friend of Judge Monday's.
As you read this story, you can easily picture the characters, and will feel like you get to know them. What I really appreciated about this book is that it was about lawyers, the practice of law, and WRITTEN by a lawyer.
Hillari's Head is a great book that talks about acceptance, embracing your past, moving on with your life, and love.
This is definitely a 5 star ***** book that you must read!
Thank you to Tim Stutler for providing me with an advance copy of the book to review.
