I just finished up the audio book Accused: A Rosato & DiNunzio Novel by Lisa Scottoline. If you remember not to long ago I read another of the books from the series and enjoyed it….so did I enjoy this one too?
I did. It’s like all series books. Once you get going you like the characters and can predict a bit what they are going to do and what’s going to happen. I’m guessing much like reading a blog. Although you aren’t here on a Saturday you can guess I’m either sewing, working on a project or antiquing/thrifting. I’m predictable as are series books. Does that mean I don’t like them, no. It is however hard to say “it’s a great book”. Nothing life changing happened when I read it but for entertainment…GOOD. Worth the read time.
Here’s what Amazon had to say…“Mary DiNunzio, who just made partner, takes on her most unusual case yet, brought to the firm by Allegra Gardner, a thirteen-year-old genius from an extraordinarily wealthy family. Allegra’s sister, Fiona, was murdered six years ago, and it seemed like an open-and-shut case: the accused, Lonnie Stall, was seen fleeing the scene; his blood was on Fiona and her blood was on him; and, most damning, Stall pleaded guilty. But young Allegra believes Stall is innocent―and wrongly imprisoned. The powerful Gardner family and Allegra’s own parents oppose reopening the case, so taking it on is risky. But Rosato & Associates can never resist an underdog. Was justice really served all those years ago? It will take Mary and her team of unstoppable lawyers, plus one teenager, to learn the truth.”
Amazon readers gave the book 4.2 stars…I’d have to agree. I prefer books that teach me something or are historic rather than reading for only entertainment but I need books like this from time to time. Too often I read very tragic books and after awhile I need to read a basic “who dun it” that doesn’t get me feeling sorrowful or heavy. This one, was just what I needed at the time.
I just, today, started listeing to this book. Im glad to hear you enjoyed it.
I love series books and this series has usually been good! I don’t think I’ve read this one so I’ll put it on my list.
You asked for suggestions a bit ago and I have a couple for you. Have you read the Maisie Dobbs books by Jacqueline Winspear? There are 13 books in the series and I think they get better as it goes along.
Another series I like is Louise Penny’s about the small village of Three Pines. Again I think the series gets better as it goes along.
Booth are mysteries but not the pulse raising type, more the thoughtful type. Nice for a change. Happy listening as I think these are all available a audio books!
