    3. Legal and medical thrillers always top my list of favorites, most often in that order. So when I got an email from eReader Cafe early this month informing me that this one - the first in a series featuring attorney Sasha McCandless - at no cost, I read the description and took the plunge. Worst case, I told myself, it will cost nothing to find out I don't like it; but on the other hand, it could open up the door to a solid series.Now that I've finished it, I'm happy to report the best-case scena [...]

    4. I enjoyed that Miller chose a somewhat unusual setting (Pittsburgh) for her debut legal thriller, Irreparable Harm. She was obviously writing about an environment she knows well, as this former patron of Pamela's Diner can attest. :-) Her descriptions of life inside a Big Law defense firm also rang true, as did her insightful observations regarding the ways that the personal relationships between attorneys and judges can subtly but monumentally impact cases at crucial times.Lawyers can be a part [...]

    5. An app that crashes planes does nothing to allay my flying jitters but makes for a great plot line. While this legal thriller was a little too formula driven, the story took off right away and kept me engaged throughout. I enjoyed the legal explanations given as the plot progressed along with the strong female lead. I will try out number two in the series.

    6. I really enjoyed this book, fast, pacy and very well written. The characters were well formed and believable. The plot engaging and concluded well. I think it really deserves a 4* rating but that is exactly where I struggled. It is undoubtedly a good book but perhaps this is also its greatest flaw. I just felt the author had been on a creative writing course and had stuck strictly to a predefined template. it was a little too formulaic for me. The author played it safe & I would have liked t [...]

    7. Although this legal thriller (suspense?) seems to have gotten pretty good reviews overall, I found this was not my cup of tea.The story opens up with a tragic plane crash killing everyone on board. Attorney Sasha McCandless is appointed to lead a defense team to protect the airline, Hemisphere Air's interest and then she discovers that the plane was rigged with an unauthorized remote system which enables anyone on board to remotely control the aircraft for a good cause and -needless to say - a b [...]

    8. I absolutely enjoyed this novel. The protagonist is a petite powerhouse and someone I would want to meet!! This was a quick read; perfect for vacation.Is this a series? I would definitely want to read the next one.

    9. I have to agree with one review I read that this book is a decent legal thriller. As stated by the same reviewer you figure out the plot of the book well before half way in. That was a bummer, I would have liked to have been more surprised at who the culprits were. Sasha is a good character, she's strong witted in the courtroom and knows how to defend herself with Krav Maga. I really don't have much to say about her, because most female characters in books are the same in ways. Leo is still a my [...]

    10. 3.5 stars. Very technical vocabulary, probably too technical for my French brain. I did enjoy the plot line however, and thought this book was well written. Not much in terms of chemistry between the main characters but then again this isn't a romance novel. The author seemed extremely knowledgeable although I know nothing about lawyers and legal proceedings and whatnot.

    11. The legal thriller "Irreparable Harm", by Melissa F. Miller begins with an airliner crashing into the side of a mountain for no apparent reason. All aboard are killed. Sasha McCandless is a lawyer on track to soon make partner in her large law firm. The airline company is a client of the firm and the team scrambles to prepare for the inevitable law suits resulting from the accident. Until she discovers it wasn't an accident. A company has developed an application that can take over control of a [...]

    12. I picked this up on a friend's recommendation because he knows how much I dislike John Grisham. He was right. Melissa Miller's narrative and the central character she creates in Sasha are interesting, and I found myself actually engaged in a story that could, in the hands of a lesser writer, have become tedious to the point of agony.In a few words, Sasha works for a mega-sized law firm, is working toward partnership, and lands a potential class-action case around a plane crash. Circumstances bec [...]

    13. Sasha McCandless is an overachieving associate at a major law firm in Pittsburgh. Despite her diminutive size, she kicks some serious ass both in the court room, and in Krav Magra practice. I didn't care for her at first. She was a bit too perfect. But as the story developed, I grew to like the way that Sasha handled the plot twists that were thrown her way.An airplane's coordinates are changed mid-flight, and it crashes into a mountain. The law firm that Sasha works for springs into action to d [...]

    14. The book was a fairly enjoyable read until the author suddenly decided she had written enough pages. She gathered up all the baddies and put them together in one place, let Sasha McCandless have one last chance to show off her self-defense skills, let the police come busting in and load all the baddies in the police car except the one that went in the body bag. Sasha runs into the judge who, she thinks, has such a bad impression of her and discovers he knows the truth after all. The last few sen [...]

    15. I don't want to sound overly critical. This book sounded mildly interesting and was a free Kindle offering so I downloaded and read. Characterizations are cardboard cutouts. We are offered plenty of cliches and stereotypes. Outside of physical and ethnic characteristics of the heroine and her male sidekick we don't learn much about either one. The heroine is a lawyer and Miller spends expends a great deal of effort describing the hierarchy a large law firm. This may be interesting to someone who [...]

    16. I got this book off of BookBub for free and was intrigued by it being a best seller on USA Today. It does hit all the things that people are anxious about. Plane crash, possible terrorism, big business and greed.Where this book had me shaking my head, was there were too many instances where I'm wondering why on earth would the protagonist do some of the actions she does. I don't want to spoil that story, but a writer has to give the characters some kind of brains.I did like the pace of the story [...]

    17. This was an entertaining legal thriller. The heroine is appealing and interesting and the plot was complex and just barely plausible. I liked the fast pacing and the background settings inside a large law firm and inside the courtroom. The ability of the diminutive female attorney to disarm and incapacitate multiple armed assailants seemed a little far-fetched, but I liked her, and wanted her to emerge unscathed, so I guess it turned out the way I hoped! This was a very quick read and kept my in [...]

    18. I'm not a big fan of legal thriller but on occasion I feel the need to clear my palate from my normal science fiction fare. Having said that, I really liked Irreparable Harm. The plot was twisty enough to hold the reader's interest, the characters are likeable and well developed, and the action plentiful. Even the legal details are presented in an interesting and understandable way. The writing is good though there were a few editing errors. In all, a fast, entertaining read. I liked it so much [...]

    19. Another book I picked up free. Sasha McCandless is an attorney in a presigous firm on her way to being a partner. Then an airline ( a major client) has a plane crash and that's when all the excitement starts. Sasha can certainly take care of herself when confronting anyone who tries to intimidate her. While their certainly were some cliches and I did figure out some of the people involved, it was a good book that I didn't want to put down,

    20. Not terrible but not great eitherThe story was entertaining but if you like a story to be somewhat believable then this isn't for you. Not incredibly difficult to figure out what was happening. The characters were not very developed or really likable. I also listened some to the audible version and the narrator wasn't great which is why I gave 2 stars rather than 3. With all that being said I still had to finish the story. Entertaining and light but a bit ridiculous too.

    21. This is a perfectly acceptable legal thrilled. There's nothing revolutionary about it, and I had most of the plot figured out before I was 40 pages deep. That said, these books are perfect for quick reads after the holidays, so I'm not complaining.I purchased the second book in the series for my Nook, and I plan to read that before the New Year as well. The first book was a very quick read (finished it in just over 12 hours), and I suspect the second one will be as well.

    22. Enjoyable legal thrillerIrreparable Harm has lots going for it. I liked the spunky protagonist, who didn't need a man to rescue her. I liked the plot, which kept me reading on. I liked the characters, both good and bad, because they all had a reality to them. I even liked the legal detail, which was given in short bursts. It was a good read, not too intense, with heroes to cheer for. Just what I was looking for at the moment.

    23. I actually only read about three chapters. The plot was great and the suspense was good. then the author had to throw in some explicit language and sex scenes that I could not read. It's a shame some authors find it necessary to throw this stuff in when it would not make a difference in the plot or outcome

    24. The book was good. I expected a courtroom drama when I downloaded it on kindle ( it was free !!). But there were hardly a few instances where the drama was played out in court. The main character is a lawyer who is also capable of killing people. It was fast and plot was also woven beautifully. Would not hesitate to pick up a book or download another Melissa Miller book.

    25. I really enjoyed this! It was fast paced, heroine was uber likeable, and the storyline was fine.It's written not so much as a who-done-it, but rather as a how-they'll-get-caught. I liked that approach, since I'm not a big who-done-it reader.Looking forward to reading more in the series.

    26. I enjoyed this as a legal thriller. Some of the action was a little predictable and far fetched but still a great read.

    27. Good legal thriller. This is my first read from Melissa F Miller and I will certainly love to read more from her.

    28. Sasha is a almost super-hero who can fight and pratice law at the same time. It was a quick read.
