Book Review: No Other Choice

Title: No Other Choice

Author: A.J. Kohler



Becky is in jail. The charge? Murder. There’s also a very deep and dark place inside her own head that she’s found, crawled into and pulled in after her. That’s going to be even harder to get her out of than jail, which will be plenty difficult by itself.

Amy is doing everything she possibly can to clear Becky. She has identified the actual killer and is working hard at getting the goods on her. Amy knows exactly what she needs to clear Becky, if she can only get the crucial evidence in time. It would be hard enough to do for any client, but when it’s someone Amy has internalized to the degree she has Becky, her cousin and best friend, she can’t even defend herself against the pain and agony she goes through when she fears she won’t be able to do it in time.

When she ends up hauling the killer into court, she’s lucky enough that the victim’s widow screams out in open court that she’ll kill Amy just like she did her no-good cheating husband!

That works. It gets Becky out of jail.

Getting her out of that pit in her own mind is going to be lots harder.

Especially when Becky confesses to Amy that she has become so introverted, so fearful of making new intimate connections with people, that the only man she could possibly have a relationship with now, the only man she wants, is Amy’s husband. It’s ripping her up inside, because she can’t do that to Amy. Or Alec either, for that matter.

How much does Amy love Becky?


Amy sees one way out, but that means trouble.

My Review

5/5 Stars

Action and drama galore!

In this novel, we see the characters from “No Third Choice” being put into a new dilemma. Becky, mind a dark place, has been framed for murder. It’s up to her best friend, Amy, to find out the truth. The characters go through plenty of ups and downs as Amy tries to find the real killer.

What I enjoyed the most about this book was how well-written Becky and Amy were. The author did a fantastic job of bringing their struggles and their relationship to life. For example, even though Becky and Amy are close, the strain between them before Becky was framed was clear, really putting us inside the dilemma that Amy faced.

A fantastic suspense through and through.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
