Best Practice~A Review

Best Practice by Carsen Taite is the third and I believe final book in the Legal Affairs series. The three books tell the stories of three best friends who have opened their own boutique law firm. This novel narrates the tale of the third law partner, Grace Maldonado and her best friend’s younger sister, Perry Clark. I will mention here that all three of these books can be read as stand-alone novels even though they share some of the same settings and characters. However, I always feel the best way to read a series is first book to last, and since all of these stories are really good, they are all worth reading.

Of course the main setting of this novel has already been fleshed out in the first two books, but I liked how the author took us on a short trip to London, England so the two main characters can meet again under different and fresh circumstances. Both main characters, as well as the secondary characters are well developed and realistic. I admit, it took me a while to connect to Perry. I couldn’t understand why she reacted the way she did at first, until I learned more about her background and thoughts as I read the story. This is an age gap romance since Perry is several years younger than Grace. Ms. Taite did an excellent job using that trope to create conflict between the characters, both main and secondary.

I had fun reading this story and watching the final law partner find her true love. If you like a delightful, romantic age-gap tale involving lawyers, you will like Best Practice. In fact, I believe you will like all three books in the Legal Affairs series.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
