{eARC Review} Vindicate (Recovered Innocence #1) by Beth Yarnall

Vindicate (Recovered Innocence, #1)

Vindicate (Recovered Innocence #1) by Beth Yarnall

Beth Yarnall kicks off a steamy new series—perfect for fans of Kendra Elliot and Emma Chase—featuring a San Diego investigative team with a soft spot for lost causes and a passion for redemption.

Cora. . . . I got my driver’s license on my sixteenth birthday so I could visit my brother in prison. Five and a half years later, he’s still locked up for a murder he didn’t commit and I’m still trying to find a way to set him free. Then I hear about Nash Security and Investigation, a private detective agency that helped exonerate a wrongfully convicted man after thirty-nine years in prison. The problem? They’ve already taken on the one pro-bono case they’ll accept this year.

Leo. . . . I’m this close to finishing law school—and never working another day at my dad’s P.I. office—when Cora Hollis walks through the door. She’s got a box of files, a handful of leads, and an independent streak a mile wide. She fascinates me and I can’t say no. Suddenly I’m volunteering to help her find a missing witness who could be the key to her brother’s case. But nothing is what it seems and giving in to the attraction between us could be more dangerous than finding the real murderer.

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!

An engaging storyline that grabbed my attention and kept me along for the ride, through all the ups and downs, lies and secrets, to the bittersweet ending.
Cora is the best sister ever. She's unwaveringly loyal and devoted. Her life is focused on one thing: freeing her brother. Her life has changed as much as Beau's. She lost her family, friends, all she had was the drive to free her brother. I felt bad for her, all she'd lost and missed. While her brother is trapped behind bars she's trapped in her own way.

Leo is bowled over by Cora. He's never met anyone like her and after a lifetime of being the one pursued suddenly the shoe is on the other foot. I liked how Cora gave Leo something to care about, to commit to, to feel passionate about.

I loved Cora and Leo together. Along with working well together they fill in missing pieces, Leo brings fun into Cora's life as well as a load of charm and his smooth talking ways, while Cora brings determination and gravity into Leo's life.

I thought the ending was too quick and there was a lot left unresolved at the end of Vindicate but there is a sequel - yay. I can't wait to read Atone! 


  1. Cora and Leo seem like an interesting pair. I've seen this one around but I'm still debating on adding it to my TBR. Thanks for sharing!
