Deeper Water by Robert Whitlow

On the surface, Deeper Water looks shallow, but after reading the end, the book has deeper originality than I thought.
It tells the simple tale of one law student, Tammy Lynn or Tami, working at a law office on a summer internship. She hails from a Georgia farm, and is number two of five kids. Her family are strict Christians, homeschoolers, and have an eternal dress code. When she takes on a case in which the criminal is neither good nor bad, her viewpoint of law practice changes. She then gets herself tangled into a cold case that is somehow tied with her case.
To tell anymore would give away the original end. The end was not one I expected, but it's one that I enjoy.
The whole setting of Tami's family is what really makes this book unique. It's nice to see that Whitlow is stepping out of the box and trying something fresh.
The only problem I can find with it is that this is the first in a series that is sure to plummet as Whitlow continues to write. The end is fine how it is and should not be continued.
4.5 stars
