Detailed Review Summary of Accused by Lisa Scottoline
That sounds snobby, doesn’t it? Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. I was a big fan of her legal series featuring Bennie Rosato and her firm in the past, but hadn’t picked up one of her titles lately.
Maybe it was too much of Mary’s life, I was intrigued abou the case and I had to read a lot about Mary going around and then find out a little something more about the case. These stories, along with many other never-before-published stories, have been collected in a New York Times bestselling series of humorous memoirs including their most recent, I Need A Lifeguard Everywhere But The Pool.
I saw this one and decided to try it even though I had reservations about scottolnie in the back of my mind.
Accused Book Summary and Study Guide
I really enjoyed lsia parts focused on the actual murder investigation — the plot there was good and I wish it had been better explored — but I had a hard time staying engaged whenever scotttoline story drifted off into the other matters that didn’t really offer much to the progression of the novel. Additionally, as other reviews note, there’s way too much about her family and the Tonys – there was NO NEED for this book to be pages when the mystery is solved in a very lackluster way and probably only takes pages of the book itself- the other pages is Mary hemming and hawing about marrying her amazingly patient boyfriend Anthony.
She has served as the President of Mystery Writers of America and her recent novel, Look Again, has been optioned for a feature film. Can Mary prove to her friends that Allegra isn’t crazy and that her family are hiding something? So, what has changed in the intervening years?

Accused (Rosato & DiNunzio, #1) by Lisa Scottoline
It reminded me too much of the Hallmark Story Buddy books I have for my daughter. Feb 15, Barbara rated it liked it Shelves: Accused is the most recent in a long line of Rosato and Associates books by Lisa Scottoline and one which should not be read before any of the others in the series.
Sadly, this book just was not up to par. The book repeats the phrases and the character’s names so that the stuffed animal will respond.
I also resented the senior accusdd. I did like Mary’s name for her mother-in-law to be, Elvirus, but she too was very much stereotyped. One dimensional plot and characters, no strength to the story-line, and is totally predictable at every chapter. I don’t know, it’s really hard to put my finger on the root cause. Mary takes the lead accuded in Accused both professionally and personally this time around, We don’t see as much of the other three lawyers in the firm.
The wise cracks come fast and furious but the humour, the intrusive family members, the caps lock every time Mary’s dad Frank speaks because all old Italian men shout when they speak, it all gets to be a bit much.
Not this author’s best work. This time around she felt mostly peripheral.
Though the yelling of the Tony’s and Mary’s dad was a pain to the ears! Instead it read like she was an immature young woman, fresh out of law school, who treats her boyfriend quite scottkline Even though this story had mixed review This was my first read listen on audio book for this author and I have mixed feelings.
Neil Patel, the family lawyer, helped cover it up by paying a kisa of money to Allegra’s secret boyfriend’s mom for her cancer treatment, which is why Lonnie ended up changing his plea to guilty and going to jail for 25 years. One would expect maturity from this character.
