Lady Killer (Rosato & Associates Series #10) by Lisa Scottoline

Mary DiNunzio has become a big-time business-getter at Rosato & Associates. But the last person she expects to walk into her office one morning—in mile-high stilettos—is super-sexy Trish Gambone, her high-school rival. Back when Mary was becoming the straight-A president of the Latin Club and Most Likely to Achieve Sainthood, Trish was the head Mean Girl, who flunked religion and excelled at smoking in the bathroom.

These days, however, Trish needs help. She is terrified of her live-in boyfriend, an abusive, gun-toting drug dealer for the South Philly mob. Mary remembers the guy from high school, too. She had a major crush on him.

Then Trish vanishes, a dead body turns up in an alley, and Mary is plunged into a nightmare that threatens her job, her family, and even her life. She goes on a one-woman crusade to unmask the killer, and on the way finds new love in a very unexpected place.

I was a little disappoointed in this writer. She seemed to be trying to write a great mystery novel, but her style of writing put me off. I would probably recommend this book for VERY light reading if there was nothing else in the house.

As a fan of Lisa Scottoline this is one more in a long list of good reads.She brings back the women of the Rosato law office.Mary DiNunzio is a local attorney that works in the firm and when an old schoolmate shows up one day needing help she becomes immersed in some trouble.I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Scottoline or who loves a good crime drama.

The author builds the story slowly. Many characters are introduced throughout. The real suspense didn't start for me until about three quarters or so into the book. She does put in several twists and turns, especially late in the story. The main character Mary, turns out to be one smart attorney. Lady Killer is sort of a against all odds type of story.

This was the first book I've read from Lisa Scottoline. It was on my "recommended" list. After read the back cover I bought it.

It was a little hard to get into. It started out talking about characters that really have little to do with the story. That turned me off at first but I kept reading. I'm so glad I did! What a great plot and cast of characters. I loved how it kept me guessing with every chapter. It has a surprising ending that I couldn't wait to get to. I will read from this author again because of this book.

I've read a few of Lisa's books and found this one to be a little bit slow. But overall, it was ok.

CD/Unabridged/Fiction/Book 7 or 12(?) of the Mary DiNunzio series. I listened to the first book of this series a while back. In that one, Mary is part of a cutthroat law firm and the narrator was very matter of fact. This story takes place years later and I have not read or listened to the ones in between. Mary is back in the neighborhood working for a small firm. By this book, Mary has regressed in her emotions and unsure of herself. She is now a widow, but happy being a peon associate at her law firm. What confidence she has is put to the test when one of the “mean girls” comes to her office to ask for help. Mary becomes a doormat overnight as all her insecurities come back from high school. This is a really good book/audio and you stands alone so reading the previous ones is not necessary. Five stars and quite a few of a lot of LOL moments. The narrator does a great job, too.
