DOLLAR SIGNS: Texas Lady Lawyer vs Boots King is the first in a series of legal thrillers based on actual client files.
Attorney Merit Bridges represents a desperate client who takes a shortcut to justice and is charged with arson and murder. When Merit tries to set things right, she finds herself the target of a ruthless hired gun, Boots King, whose charge is simple: “Stop her.” With the help of her team – including Betty, a mothering office manager with a bad-ass attitude – Merit struggles to stay alive, navigate a labyrinth of legal issues, and prove once again that you don’t mess with a Texas lady lawyer.
