The Divorce Papers: A Review

When criminal lawyer Sophie steps in to cover an interview for a client seeking a divorce, she's soon involved in her first divorce case.
Told through emails and court documents, readers take a journey as Sophie deals with her own feelings growing up as the child of divorced parents and learns the ropes of handling a divorce case.
I like this idea for telling a story, and I really liked Sophie, Mia, and Mia's daughter Jane. I loved the different point of views and found them unique and entertaining. I wanted the two women to find love and happiness, and while the end of the book had a satisfying conclusion, it left me wanting more.
I guess it's because the heart of the story often got lost in the shuffle of paperwork--literal paperwork. Like pages of court document that I finally just skimmed because I wanted to enjoy the story.
I'm not sure what to rate this book because while I enjoyed it, it was hard to overlook the tedious interruptions to the story.
Overall, I do recommend it to readers who don't mind some legal jargon in the middle of their story.
Sophie and Mia are great characters and worth the effort.
I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.
