When Mike and Lindy Markov, one of the Lake Tahoe area's wealthiest couples, have a big public breakup, mid-level attorney Nina Reilly winds up with the divorce case -- which has one problem. The Markovs were never legally married. As the court case unfolds, even more complications arise ... and soon it becomes apparent that someone is willing to kill in order to get the verdict they want.
Throw in more complications on Nina's home front and you've got the plot of "Breach of Promise."
Overall, it was an entertaining read. The characters were, for the most part, three-dimensional and believable. The Northern California setting is one I know well, so I was able to envision the action as it took place.
The ending of the book felt a trifle rushed, which I don't expect in a volume of nearly 600 pages.
