HOPE is the 4th book in “The Feisty Lawyers Series” and this story can absolutely be read as a stand-alone with no problem. I do recommend reading in order if you can because there are threads and layers that tie all of the books together which make for very rich reading.
As with all of the books in this series, there is action and adventure and suspense. This is a shorter story and can be read in one sitting. It moves quickly and there aren’t any wasted words or scenes used as filler.
