*** The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger


It may be fitting that I read The Divorce Papers immediately after Love Illuminated, but this is pure, light fiction, cunningly rendered through the correspondence between an aggrieved wife and her divorce lawyer, a criminal law specialist who has never worked on a divorce, but who gets assigned to it after the wife specifically requests her. Beside the divorce case, there are intrigues at the law firm, partially caused by the unusual assignment of lawyer, and personal issues with the lawyer’s family (rather more ponderous and forgettable). A fun, undemanding story in an unusual format that works.
