Summary from Goodreads:
A focused law student, romance has been absent from Madison’s life. She has successfully planned each phase of her life and resigned to the fact that there will be plenty of time for love after she passes the bar exam—that is, until the single act of seeking shelter from a spring downpour dramatically alters the course of her life.
Madison is lured away from the security of law school into a world where she learns about the destructive nature of greed. Thrust in a maze of money laundering and murder, Madison experiences the value of true friendship and witnesses the healing power of love.

About eighty yards away, FBI Agent Court Braxton guided his company-issued sedan along the gentle curve of the residential street. He glanced ahead and observed a man and woman looking upwardly at the sky. Not knowing either Jeremiah Coltrane or Madison Leigh, he continued to observe the couple as they turned to head in the direction of his car. However, the woman instantly captured Court’s attention when the gap between them narrowed, and without realizing it, Court stopped pressing the accelerator. He held his breath, mesmerized as he watched absolute perfection walk closer. No matter what it took, Court Braxton made the instant decision to learn more about the woman who was causing his heart to race and his palms to perspire.
Madison took a passing glimpse at the darkly colored automobile as it crept along the street. She thought the driver might be lost and was slowing to ask directions. It was then that a sudden flash of lightning instantly diverted her attention.
