Liza Mary get married in Vegas or at City Hall before the next book so I don’t have to read any more about this situation. I thought it might just be me with too much going on and not really getting into this book, but from reading other reviews, I think this was not one of Scottoline’s best.

View all accuser comments. There was nothing interesting about any of the characters Jan Lipkin Actually I enjoy the extended info on Mary’s family — the more I know about her family, the more I feel I know about her character. She graduated cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania Law School where she taught a course she developed, “Justice and Fiction. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. I’d be tempted to label the series ‘light legal’.

Accused: A Rosato & Associates Novel

Of all the gals, she is my least favorite. Yes, there are lots of laugh out loud moments. Yes, there is an answer to whether Lonnie Stall actually killed Fiona, but I was not intensely involved in the novel.

I’m giving a two star rating simply because the book managed to keep my interest long enough to finish it. Can Mary prove to her friends that Allegra isn’t crazy and that her family are hiding something? Too much dialogue between secondary characters who add little value to the book’s overall flimsy plot, unnecessary and wholly and often tangential situations where people lose track of their purpose, and the development of a direction that no lawyer would take, even in a fictional setting; takes the reader in a meandering and loosely knitted long book that is unsatisfying and frustrating.


If nothing else was available. I had read several books by this author several years ago and then quit. Legal Lite I’m not sure what to say about this book. As Mary starts questioning some people who knew Fiona she is getting entirely different stories then the ones Allegra has been telling her and now she wonders if in fact Allegra is wrong on looking for another suspect in the case.

I’m usually a Scottoline fan, but this book seemed pretty lame to me. One thing that I enjoy about this series is seeing the characters grow. Is it necessary to read this series in order?

Please try again later. Allegra’s sister was murdered and Lonnie went to prison for the crime. But Allegra swears he’s innocent. Her boyfriend puts up with way too much aaccused her crap. Maybe the writing is just too simplistic, character development fairly absent except for the fact that we keep hearing about Mary’s impetuous nature which really translates to adolescent actions and the plot too by-the-numbers.

That helps me understand her decisions and actions. Mary seems to be hooked and wants to help Allegra but she might be taking on more then she can handle with this case. I thought that the book showed there is a slim line between a controlling parent and a caring parent and it delved into these areas very well.

Allegra Gardner’s sister Fiona was murdered six years ago, and it seemed like an open-and-shut case: I found myself thinking- this is the difference between good literature and just a book, authors of good scottokine expect the reader to bring something to the table- intelligence, feeling, experience.


I think the book might have assumed that you knew Mary and Judy from the previous series so I am going back and reading those first.

Accused Book Summary and Study Guide

Story was kind of boring too. I will continue the series as I want to learn about these ladies, especially Bennie who is an enigma to me. I saw this one and decided to try it even though I had reservations about it in the back of my mind. The thing is, I believe they sent the wrong man b jail. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I must say I enjoyed listening to it.

She says yes, but is unsure on if she should have given that answer. Liked it, but it could have been better.

I was so happy when the author brought back these characters. I really have liked the lawyer books, and this one by several readers has been panned fairly strongly. And why of why did the author keep reiterating that the main character made partner in the law firm. They’re loving and loud and deserve a book all their own. And Scottlline, the central character of this book, was so completely immature it was hard for me to keep reading about her. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

I thought that the book showed there is a s Allegra’s sister was murdered and Lonnie went to prison for the crime.

Then I will go on and read these.
