Another great Lisa Scottoline adventure in Philadelphia with the all-woman law firm that seems to always find adventure, not tomention a body or two, along the way. The author, who really is lawyer, seems to know her way around a law office and courtroom. Very entertaining repartee among the characters, even while they work to solve their problems.

Fun mystery, with a delightfully out-of-step lady lawyer stepping on toes as she goes, out to solve a murder - her own!

"Courting Trouble" is about a newly hired attorney, Anne Murphy, in an all female law firm with a weakness for nice clothes and a tendency to put it all on her credit cards.

As a light and frothy read, this book is excellent. Ms. Scottoline is an exceptional storyteller, and any annoyance over the technical flaws is quickly undermined by the desire to find out what happens on the next page.

This was a very interesting book, kept me on the edge of my seat! Kate Burton gave a good performance - it wasn't dry/monotone at all. I enjoyed this book!

An entertaining plot, fast read, and completely unexpected twist at the end. Well, almost at the end. She has to wrap things up, and that takes a couple pages. Learning about the stalker she thought she left in CA is really creepy.

Anne Murphy is smart,goureous, and young, the redheaded rookie at the Philadelphi law firm of Rosato & Associates. She leaves town for the Fourth of July weekend to prepare for a high-profile trial, but when she buys her morning newspaper her own photo is plastered all over the front page.
And the headline reads -LAWYER MURDERED- supposedly refers to her. Anne sets out to find her killer, playing dead to stay alive.
The investigation takes all of Anne's boldness and ingenuity, but her knack for courting trouble makes it almost impossible for Anne to play well with others and fight her urge to sleep with the enemy. Then an unexpected event places her in lethal jeopardy and leaves her with everything to lose-including her life.
Really enjoyed this one.

From Publishers Weekly
New York Times bestseller Scottoline's cast of beautiful female lawyers at Philadelphia's Rosato & Associates is augmented by red-headed bombshell Anne Murphy, a woman with a secret past, who's trying to make a go of it in a new city. An intriguing character jammed into a laborious plot, Murphy toils as a career-minded loner. On a much-needed weekend away from her heavy caseload, she picks up a newspaper to read that she has been murdered by an intruder who blasted her in the face with a shotgun. Murphy knows the real victim was the woman who had agreed to feed her cat; she also knows that the murderer was likely Kevin Satorno, the stalker who nearly killed her a year earlier while she was living in Los Angeles. Murphy figures that if Satorno discovers he actually killed the wrong person, he'll continue hunting her, so she decides to play dead and enlist the help of her new colleagues at Rosato & Associates to track him down. Scottoline (The Vendetta Defense; Moment of Truth) wraps up the far-fetched action in high style, with a few predictable twists, at Philly's big outdoor Fourth of July celebration. As in her eight previous women-in-peril legal thrillers, she tempers the plot's bloodshed with a bouncy tone that some readers may find cloying. But this doesn't bother the former lawyer's growing base of fans she's now translated into 25 languages and despite Murphy's occasional "you go, girl" silliness, she's the best character Scottoline has created in a while.

I generally like Lisa Scottoline's books but I don't think this is among the better ones. I often felt like I had come into it in the middle or as if there were a book before it I hadn't read.

I would not say "don't bother to read" by any means, but if there are others you haven't read, I'd go there first.

Experience shows. Lisa Scottoline's early courtroom dramas often fell short of the mark, but Courting Trouble is better developed and offers a stronger plot that earlier offerings. Anne Murphy is my own favorite of the practicing attornies at the Rosato Law Firm.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
"Anne Murphy is smart, gorgeous, and young, the redheaded rookie at the Philadelphia law firm of Rosato & Associates. She leaves town for the Fourth of July weekend to prepare for a high-profile trial, but when she buys her morning newspaper, her own photo is plastered all over the front page. And the headline - LAWYER MURDERED - supposedly refers to her. Anne sets out to find her killer, playing dead in order to stay alive." She tries to go it alone but quickly realizes that she'll have to trust people she barely knows - colleagues who hate her guts, a homicide squad that wants her out of the crime-fighting business, and a new love who inconveniently happens to be opposing counsel. The investigation takes all of Anne's boldness and ingenuity - plus a pair of red satin hot pants. But her knack for courting trouble makes it almost impossible for Anne to play well with others, defend the lawsuit, and fight her urge to sleep with the enemy. Then an unexpected event places her in lethal jeopardy and leaves her with everything to lose - including her life.

There is no book Scottoline has written that I haven't enjoyed.
The back of the book blurb says it best: "Anne Murphy is the redheaded rokie at the Philadelphia law firm of Rosato & Associates, and one morning she wakes up to front page headlines proclaiming Lawyer Murdered - above her own picture. If she wants to stay alive, she's got to play dead.
