Written by Arlene LagosGenre: Women's Fiction
A group of women dispense justice when justice fails.
In a way, it's an all-female version of Criminal Minds. You have Grimes, the techno-geek who takes care of everything computer. Callahan is an actual police officer. Lexi is much like Morgan - a little brains and a little brawn. Camille is the organizer.
These women - and others - work behind the scenes when they see injustice, whether it be an abused wife, an abused child or a crooked politician.
They're far from vigilantes. They may take the law into their own hands but they have a strict policy of not physically harming anyone. Oh, they may kidnap an abusive husband long enough to get his wife relocated, or they may handcuff a child molester to a fountain in the middle of the square, or send a racist murderer to the heart of Africa, but they don't hurt anyone.
It is a story of intrigue as well as justice. Each woman has her own reasons for joining the Butterflies and each gets her chance to reveal her own reason. Except for Camille, the leader. Her story involves a past she'd rather forget. But she can't. Especially when that past marches right up to her face.
There are errors and the tense is switched a few times. But it's a decent read, especially those times when you wish someone who deserved it would get their comeuppance.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
