Book review and giveaway: The Deposit Slip

In about two weeks, my life is going to get very busy with a bunch of projects, so lately I've been spending my time doing as many leisure activities as I can! This includes reading as many fun books as possible. The latest book that I read was a new legal thriller by Todd M. Johnson, entitled The Deposit Slip. Here's a bit about it, from the publisher's website:

$10,000,000 Is Missing.

Erin Larson is running out of options. In the wake of her father's death, she found a slim piece of paper--a deposit slip--with an unbelievable amount on it. Only the bank claims they have no record of the money, and trying to hire a lawyer has brought only intimidation and threats. Erin's last chance is Jared Neaton.

How Far Will One Lawyer Go to Find the Money?
When Jared wearied of the shady ethics of his big law firm and started his own, he never expected the wheels to fly off so quickly. One big loss has pushed him to the brink, and it's all he can do to scrape by.

And How Far Will Someone Go to Stop Him?

He's not sure if Erin's case is worth the risk, but if the money is real, all his problems could vanish. When digging deeper unleashes something far more dangerous than just threats, both Jared and Erin must decide the cost they're willing to pay to discover the truth.
It took me a few chapters to really get into this book since there are a lot of characters and backstories presented in the beginning. However, once I got into the book, it quickly turned into a "can't put it down", fast-moving and intriguing story. It's a great legal thriller with messages of honesty and forgiveness, as well as lots of plot twists and turns. Although this book is published by Bethany House, there isn't much discussion of Christianity or faith, beyond a few mentions of prayer. However, given that it's published by a Christian publishing house, it is free of bad language and there are no sex scenes.

I really enjoyed The Deposit Slip and hope that the author writes more books featuring the same main characters!
