Her arrest comes on the day she’s called in sick and stayed inside, so she can’t explain how an eye-witness describes her in great detail, down to the make and model of her car.A terrible mistake has been made, and her insistence of innocence falls on deaf ears. Even her fellow inmates don’t believe her as it’s a claim they all make.

In the meantime, a plan for retribution is brewing, and naïve Carrie finds herself smack dab in the middle of an evil scheme concocted by the prison bully. A ten year sentence seems mild when she’s threatened with death for refusing to participate. Can Carrie find a way out of this horrible nightmare, or is she destined to spend her days locked in terror, isolation, and the cold gray interior of prison walls?...

    This book took me on a wildly emotional ride as I rapidly turned the pages until I had consumed the entire book down to the final satisfying sentence. The story is told in a straight-forward, matter-of-fact way that, for me, makes Carrie’s internal angst all the more powerful and believable. More

    I got this book free on Kindle so I was not sure about it at first but I am really glad I gave the book a chance because it was really very good. I loved how the author made you feel for Carrie about what she was going through when she was sent to prison for a crime she did not commit. It was also awesome watching how she grew during her time in prison. Very good book.

    Carrie's character is one that readers will easily identify with. Vulnerable to a certain point, we see Carrie coming into her own and becoming a stronger person as her jail time progresses. Her character will evoke just about every emotion, especially despair, frustration and finally hope.When Seth's character was introduced, I wasn't sure if he was a good guy or bad guy. I won't tell you which and trust me when I say, you will be flipping the pages as fast as you can to find out. The interaction between Carrie and Seth gives depth to this book and the end .... well, all I can say is my mouth was hanging open. It was a very surprising ending that you just don't want to miss.Then we meet the prison bully, Jet. With a score to settle, she will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Jet's character was exasperating. I found myself strongly disliking her and wishing she would get her due punishment. Ms. Simpson created the perfect villain in Jet, a true manipulator, while at the same time giving her some very real qualities that one minute had you liking her and the next wishing she would drop off the face of the earth.First Degree Innocence is an extremely unique book in that it gives the reader a legitimate glimpse into the lives of the incarcerated while throwing several twists into the story. It was a riveting and highly entertaining read. Ms. Simpson writes about interesting characters and complex plot lines while at the same time drawing the reader in with each new page. This is one author who sure didn't pull any punches with First Degree Innocence and you will be immersed in Carrie's world within the first paragraph. This book starts out with a bang and continues through to the last page. First Degree Innocence is an exceptional book that will have you hooked right from the beginning. If you love to root for the underdog, look no further, you've found the perfect book.

    I just read this book and really enjoyed it. It's the first I've read of this author, but I'll be looking to read more of her novels in the future. The life behind bars that she portrays is gruelling without being too graphic. It's easy to sympathise with Carrie, and as each page turned I was rooting for her release. The hero is just 'somewhere in the background'-ready and waiting for her to be released. The reader doesn't get to know him very well, though Ginger Simpson gives enough of him to know he's going to be a great guy for her when she's free. I think anything else would have been unrealistic. The words flow off the page and the secondary characters are well portrayed too. Not having read any other prison novels I have nothing to compare with, but the details seem to be well researched.

    Carrie Lang is sentenced to ten years in prison after being accused of being the getaway driver in a car used in a bank robbery. She continues to protest her innocence after her imprisonment. Carrie clashes with a fellow inmate and fears for her safety. You will need to read the book to discover the rest of Carrie's fight to freedom. Certainly gives you a picture of life in a woman's prison and how depressing it must feel to be falsely accused of a criminal act.

    I liked it but wasn't blown away. I thought at the beginning that if the whole tale is set in prison I wasn't going to like it but it was and I did, so there. It was all a bit rushed and in spots a little farfetched but all in all it kept me amused.

    Good book, and something that realistically happens in our judical system. Overly simplified on getting appeal and release.
