Betrayed. A mini review, recipe style.

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
  • Cancer

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.
