Little kids, little problems. Big kids ... federal felony charges?
Attorney Sasha McCandless-Connelly has her hands full with her six-year-old twins, but she adores her pack of nieces and nephews. So when sixteen-year-old Colin calls and tearfully announces he's been arrested, she flies into action to protect him. Colin's accused of using the Internet to make threatening statements, a federal felony. Social media posts by Colin threaten his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend with violence—and worse.
Colin swears he didn't make the posts, and Sasha believes him. Then the private messages turn up. As she shines a light on the high school's dark underbelly, the teenagers close rank, and the whispered secrets multiply. But she's confident she can clear Colin's name. Then someone actually tries to make good on the threat to kill the other boy, and Colin's taken into custody on an attempted murder charge.
Someone's trying to frame him. But who? And why? Sasha navigates a web of lies and ever-shifting alliances as she scrambles to save a kid whose diapers she once changed ... even as she realizes she doesn't know him nearly as well as she thought she did.
Innocent Mistakes is the fourteenth full-length novel in the USA Today bestselling Sasha McCandless series.
Best one yet…
Well written. Well researched. Uncomfortable and frightening topic that unfortunately is our reality today.
A page turner like all Sasha mysteries. I surprised myself by figuring this one out early, but could not put it down. Thank you Melissa F. Miller
A sister who quickly denies that Colin her brother would post things like that on the internet, asking her friends by her, they don’t know, it’s his login.
Threats, jealousy, cyberbullying, pictures taken without permission and posted on social media. that goes on the underside of high school.
Sasha has known Colin since he was in diapers. He was innocent, still the lost of innocent and trusts in his friends has done damage. The story seemed real, very real, a page turner and a winner in this series.
