Betrayed (Rosato & DiNunzio)
By Lisa Scottoline
Rating: 2/5 Stairs
I cannot even begin to tell you all the ins and outs of this book. Ms. Scottoline has so many different things going on, creating a recipe instead of a review seemed to be the best course of action to take to tell you about this book. This is the first book I’ve read from her and probably my last. I did not connect with her lead character, Judy Carrier, at all.
To be fair, many of the Goodreads reviews say that her standalone books and her previous Rosato & Associates series are much better than this outing, which I randomly picked up at the library. You win some, you lose some.
Recipe for Betrayed
Let’s start with our base of injustice:
- Undocumented workers/illegal immigrants
- Asbestos poisoning lawsuits
- Unfair practices to women in the workforce
Stir to combine. Next add:
- An unlikeable mother
- A best friend who got promoted at work and is getting married
- A self-centered boyfriend
- A dog with fleas
Shake until mixed thoroughly. Before baking, toss in:
- An unknown stash of cash
- Potential drug ties
- A knack for being alone in the wrong place at the wrong time
Finally, sprinkle the end result with an unknown adoption.
To serve, wrap it up with a nice bow.
