Good Sunday morning! I hope this finds everyone well and enjoying the holiday season.

This week’s read was Accused, by Lisa Scottoline, and brought back a host of characters we’ve come to know and love in her all-women’s law firm. In this book, Mary Dinunzio’s life seems to be on a roll; she’s just made partner at Rosato & Associates and also become engaged to be married. While celebrating the announcement of her partnership with friends and family at the office, Mary gets called away to the conference room to meet a new client. Who’s 13 years old. Her name is Allegra, and her sister was murdered six years prior. Even though a man was convicted of the crime, she wants to hire Mary, and Rosato & Associates, to re-investiagate the case. What initially appears to be the whims of a young girl with a sad fixation on her sister’s murder turns out to be anything but, and the whirlwind that ensues will keep you guessing until the end.

Accused is a very quick read, with all kinds of banter between Mary, her coworkers, and her old-school Italian parents with their geriatric friends. It’s a good lesson in loyalty and persistence, and I think that you’ll enjoy it. So give Accused a try, and until next time, happy reading! 🙂
