    • I wish to thank Net Galley, Starpath Books, and author Manning Wolfe for an advanced copy of Dollar Signs in exchange for an unbiased review.Dollar Signs, Ms. Manning’s debut novel is a very engaging legal thriller straight out of the heart of Texas where contracts are contracts and big business rules.

    • Merit Bridges is a wonderful character that has a great future. She is not too old or too young but just right. She is a mother, a lawyer, a widow, savvy and able to express what she does and does not want/like. There are billboards everywhere in the world and if half of what is talked about in this book is true then…oh my…and what a hook to base a story on.The story has characters I could relate to and an idea that was new to me. The bad guy is charming – at first – but definitely more [...]

    • Smart, moving legal thriller.Three reasons I chose this book: written by female author lives in Texas and legal thriller. So glad I did, really enjoyed Merit Bridges character and his office stuff. Billboard company taking advantage of land owners, pushing them sign a lease to put there signs, taking advantage of their land. In very small print hiding their real interest. Other parallel running plot is foreclosure of home. Feel good story. Don't mess with Texas lady lawyer Merit Bridges.


    • I just finished reading Manning's debut legal thriller, Dollar Signs, and I was hooked from beginning to end. In the story, attny. Merit Bridges represents her client in a case against a powerful and bullying corporation. Throughout the course of the story, she ends up having a slew of run-ins with Boots King, a sleazy agent who Betty (the office manager) has very serious reservations about. As the plot thickens, as does the tricky legal maneuvering, Merit has to pull out all the stops to protec [...]

    • "MANNING WOLFE paints a stunning portrait of crime and punishment in Austin,Texas. Readers will not soon forget her attorney heroine, Merit Bridges, nor the villain, Boots King"Jarlon Magee, author


    • If you are looking for a suspenseful, legal jargon filled read featuring an independent, feisty Texas female lawyer, Dollar Signs is likely right up your alley. I certainly have to give the author credit for giving this book such a strong, won’t back down, mostly likable heroine. I say mostly because I am a little conflicted on her self-proclaimed Cougar nature when it comes to men. As a romantic at heart, it bothered me she wasn’t with Ag, who was always there for her and obviously had feel [...]


    • Check out my review here: ivoryowlreviews.cDisclaimer: I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I like a smart thriller, one that makes me actually have to think, and Dollar Signs didn't disappoint. Merit defends the hard-working "little guy" against the corrupt "big business" trying to take his land and livelihood. "Fixer" Boots King is one of those slimy, "lo [...]

    • When Manning asked if the blog would like to review her legal thriller, I have to admit I was intrigued. Expecting a Texas version of Ally McBeal? No, but brilliant none the less. The first thirty percent took me a little while to get into, mainly because a lot of the legal jargon and processes seemed to take a toll on me personally, but all in all, a very witty, smart, and well thought out plot. The sassy, widowed lawyer, single mother to a dyslexic son and with her own law firm, she really doe [...]


    • It's great to read a "page turner" novel set in an area that you know. That's the bonus of this fast-reading book that I had a hard time putting down to get enough sleep. Another bonus is that while many "quick read crime novels" have cardboard characters, Merit Bridges feels like a real person that I might meet somewhere on the street. The plot twists and turns kept me guessing as to how it would end. You won't want to miss this one.


    • I've never read a thriller revolving around a lawsuit before, but the excitement and pace reminded me of a more sophisticated Nancy Drew! Merit is on the case to bring justice to her client. However, there are a lot of side-stories that muddle the main event. Overall, I found the novel enjoyable and would be interested in reading the next installment!


    • Good ReadGreat storyline with lots of action. Legal based brings an interesting look into behind the scene proesses that make our judcial system operate.
