Saving Madeline by Rachel Ann Nunes. Published by Shadow Mountain.

Caitlin McLoughlin is a Utah public defence attorney. Almost all of her clients are guilty, and while the prosecution usually comes up with evidence to lock up the criminals, this time they are scrambling to come up with something. Caitlin will not let this particular criminal go free, and in so doing, she risks her career. The case is closed and soon she thinks its all behind her until someone does some digging. All things come to a head as her new client, Parker, a suspected kidnapper, makes her question her future and her past comes back to haunt her.

This is an amazing book. It has mystery, excitement and a splash of romance. The story line is intriguing and the characters are believable. Some topics are a bit mature so I recommend it to people around ages 14 and up.
