Dirty Blonde Author:Lisa Scottoline Attractive, sexy, and tough-minded, Federal judge Cate Fante's world is thrown into turmoil when her secrets are revealed and both her job and her life become threatened.
Cate Fante is strong and sexy and wears designer suits like overpriced armor. She's just become a judge but leads a dark double life that she hides from everyone. Her cover is blown when a high-profile case in her courtroom takes a stunning turn. Overnight the tabloids tell her secret, her boyfriend dumps her, and her new career hangs in tatters. But Cate's troubles are only beginning. An enemy no one anticipated sends her running for her life, and she'll have to fight her way back to the truth.... or die trying.
I liked this story, though it's not my favorite by Scottoline. It seems that the storyline could be plausible because the main character, Cate, wasn't sure if she wanted the position/promotion of judge or the job its self. So I could see how a person could make bad decisions about her personal life, if she wasn't really sure of who she was and what the ramifications would be towards her career. There were a few unexpected turns in the book and the guilty party was way out in left field for me, someone I'd not suspected at all.
One of Scottoline's earlier books. The first couple of chapters were tough to get hold of, but I'm glad I hung in there. Solid book and good story. Interesting to see the world of supreme court justice through the eyes of a woman.
