They say that blood is thicker than water, but just how far should you go for a sister?
When ace lawyer Bennie Rosato’s twin sister returns to Philadelphia, she knows that trouble is on the horizon, for her sister never contacts her with familial love at the forefront of her agenda – if she contacts her at all. At the same time, Bennie’s law firm is in trouble, so she takes on a potentially lucrative class-action suit to try to save the day. It could be make or break – both for her family and her firm.
Meanwhile, her colleague Mary DiNunzio persists in bringing in a case that looks more like an Italian wedding than a lawsuit, and then a mysterious stranger appears just in time to help Bennie in the fight of her life – for her life.
Full of pace, suspense and laugh-out-loud humor, bestselling New York Times author Lisa Scottoline has written her strongest book ever, featuring many of the much-loved characters from the wise-cracking all-women Philadelphia law firm of Rosato and Associates.
I know I said I wouldn’t read another book in the Rosato & Associates Series but, again, I found this one at my local library and since the narrator was different I decided to check it out. The narrator made all the difference, plus Mary didn’t have a large part so her family members weren’t around too much.
The story line was great and involves Bennie’s twin and a lot of hatred toward the successful lawyer.
So glad I tried another book by Lisa Scottoline.
