Newest book from Ms. Scottoline featuring Mary DiNunzio, attorney reluctant. Mary's high school nemeses, The Mean Girls, need her help and feeling her usual guilt when things go wrong, she almost loses her job and her life! Loved the book.
Good story about the 'clique' of girls in high school now adults that need help with one of them being abused by her boyfriend and the twist and turns that the story takes until the very end.
First time I have read this author and I really enjoyed the book. It was different for me being all about a lawyer and not much romance. I wouldn't have thought I like it, but I did!
Lisa Scottoline has always been a favorite of mine and she didn't let me down with this one. Sweet, mild-mannered Mary DiNunzio is bringing in a ton of business in the law office where she works and when her old high-school nemesis comes to her begging for help, it leads Mary down a path where she never thought she would go.
My experience with LADY KILLER was listening to the unabridged audio CD with Barbara Rosenblat as the narrator. And I must say that Barbara is a top-notch narrator. She give depth and emotion to each of the characters. She pauses in the appropriate places to let you know that the scene has changed. She alters her voice so that you can tell that someone else is speaking. Not all narrators are as good as Barbara. Some narrators are quite awful, so much so that you stop listening.
I really like the story. I think most every woman could indentify with someone like the "mean girls" from their high school past. They really cracked me up. I thought that Lisa keep their characters consistent and believable.
Someone recommended Lisa Scottoline to me because I have enjoyed the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. Lisa's books are different but they are still fun to listen to like Janet's. The experiences of the characters here are probably a bit more believable. All in all an enjoyable experience.
