Mountain Top by Robert Whitlow

I don't really understand Whitlow's purpose behind Mountain Top besides it being inspired by his wife.
It's about a lawyer-turned-pastor who is called back into the legal field because his new defendant had a dream about him representing him. The defendant has a lot of odd dreams, mostly about the corrupt town leadership. This fact is what got him into trouble in the first place. He has a odd way of decoding the dreams, so nobody knows whether they really mean something or not.
The defense lawyer has also just found out that his wife is pregnant. It seemed like Whitlow added this just to fill time and create more dramatic scenes.
The characters aren't very wowing, though there has been worse. The plot meanders along and barely has any kind of trial in it. It doesn't hold the reader's attention very well. It's like a bad Karen Kingsbury book.
Basically, the book is pretty lame, mostly because of the cheesy end. You probably shouldn't waste any time on this book. Read Higher Hope instead.
2 stars
