compelling mystery, interesting characters (both main and supporting). structurally, storylines of the missing girls were a bit choppy, so kept wondering how the flow could have been improved had those pieces been handled differently. ( )

A few weeks ago I read and reviewed the first O'Shaughnessy book fearing Nina Reilly, attorney, who had moved to Lake Tahoe following her divorce. In Motion to Suppress Nina and her son Bobby were living with her brother and his family as she established her new practice. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and the Lake Tahoe area, so I was anxious to read the second book in the series.

Invasion of Privacy continues their story and the connection between Nina and an investigator from California named Paul Van Wagoner. We also learn the identity of Bobby's biological father. All of the characters, both personal and business, anyone connected with Nina actually, are in terrible danger in this book because of Nina's client, a woman film maker named Terry London. I was pretty sure everything would work out all right, but I was definitely afraid for some of the characters, including Nina and her son. This is a edge-of-the-seat read that has you holding your breath more than once. I suspected who-dun-it early on but couldn't be sure until near the end.

The plot involves four young women who disappeared several years earlier and a movie London made about one of them who hasn't been seen in 12 years. Nina represents London in an invasion of privacy case brought by the parents of the girl and others who are horrified by the movie and don't want it released. That case and what happens as a result involve fascinating legal issues, and bring Nina up against an attorney she has faced off with before. He's everything a lawyer shouldn't be, a character you'll love hating. He discovers that Nina is much too clever and versed in the law for him to be crossing her.

I loved this book as much as the first one. Now I see I don't have the third one so I'll be off to the library to borrow it. We have so many mystery lovers in this area, I'm sure they'll have it. I do recommend both O'Shaughnessy books I've read so far. ( )

I absolutely could not put this book down, as it kept me up late into the night. If you haven't read this sister-tearm author, you are missing out. One of the main characters, Nina Reilly is central in all of this author's books. Their genre is usually legal mysteries. ( )
