Book Summary

Life can change in just an instant. That's the harsh reality that Jenny Jasik faces when her son is killed in an automobile accident, but never in her wildest dreams did she ever expect to be working undercover as a member of a drug task force. She is, after all, just a mom. But don’t discount what a mom can do when the safety of her children is at stake.

Inspired by a true story of a woman who took on drug lords in her small town, this story has resonated with readers far and wide.


One Small Victory is a serious novel. Maryann Miller conveys a mom's deepest emotions honestly and realistically. This book is filled with suspense and also the essence of the heroine, Jenny's, relationships with her children, coworkers and friends. There is just a touch of romance which gives this mainstream read that bit of hope that I like to find in women's fiction. I found the ending to be perfect for this reality-based story.
