About The Book:
After the tragic death of her husband, Meredith Morgan spends a decade raising her son, Zach, alone. On the verge of Zach’s graduation from high school, Meredith moves in with her fiancé, Dr. Reed Edwards, excited to begin a new chapter. But, when Zach is accused of sexually assaulting the daughter of a prominent lawyer, Meredith’s life spins out of control. Reed’s ex-wife does not want their daughters in the same house as Zach; Meredith’s best friend distances herself and her sons from the fray. Only childhood friend and lawyer, Peter Flynn, remains by Meredith’s side.
As Peter and Meredith team up to prove Zach’s version of the events, long buried feelings resurface, complicating and already difficult circumstance. Meanwhile, evidence mounts against Zach and Meredith faces the ever-increasing likelihood her son is guilty. Struggling to cope with the idea of Zach behind bars, Meredith learns just how far a mother will go to protect her own.
About The Author:
Leanne lives in New Jersey with her husband of twenty-five years and their three wonderful children. When Leanne is not cheering her kids on in their activities, she can be found running, watching Philadelphia sports, and spoiling her two beloved dogs. Favorite locations include the Jersey shore, Martha’s Vineyard, and any place that sells books or coffee, preferably both. A passionate student, Leanne’s dream life would include going back to college and majoring in everything.
Leanne is a graduate of Lafayette College and The Dickinson School of Law. She is a former attorney. Her debut novel, Their Last Chance, was a 2021 winner in the Book Excellence Awards contest. In addition Their Last Chance will be featured in the June 2021 Kirkus Review catalog as one of the 2021 Indie Books Worth Discovering. Leanne is also the author of the novelette, Loved Locked.
MOTHER OF THE ACCUSED is a master class in how to keep the reader engaged. After reading Chapter One, I HAD to know what had led the characters to that courtroom. The trouble keeps escalating until the heart-wrenching climax. This book is like a scary movie–you’re afraid for what’s about to happen, but you can’t look away. – Sheila Athens, The Truth About Love
