Save Me by Lisa Scottoline (April 2011 batch), Reviews of Early Reviewers Books (heinäkuu 2011)


Satisfyingly working my way through the Rosato and Associates series by Lisa Scottoline with book number nine, Killer Smile. The law firm, Rosato and Associates, is comprised of all women lawyers and administrative staff. Each book in the series focuses on a specific member of the legal team. In this installment, Mary DiNunzio is hired pro bono to represent the estate of Amadeo Brandolini, an Italian immigrant. Amadeo’s son wants to sue for reparations.

Amadeo lived in Philadelphia with his wife and started a small fishing business. At the beginning of World War II, Amadeo was arrested and placed in an Italian-American internment camp in Montana. He then committed suicide. Mary immerses herself into the life of Amadeo while also continuing to process her grief of her beloved husband. Mary family, friends, and coworkers are constantly setting her up on blind dates.

While Killer Smile is definitely a murder mystery story, it also reads like a historical fiction novel. Lisa does a fantastic job bringing the history of Italian-American internment camps to light as readers continue to enjoy the journey of an investigation filled with intrigue, suspense, and murder.

I borrowed the audiobook of Killer Smile from local library with the Hoopla app. Narration by Barbara Rosenblat brought Mary DiNunzio to life and made for an enjoyable listen.

I have photos and additional information that I'm unable to include here. It can all be found on my blog, in the link below.

Interesting idea, but was very tiresome to read trying to differentiate all the Tony's with typography (ALL CAPS) or attempts to use phonetic spelling to convey accents. Not for me.

This is only a brief review as I don't want to give anything away. There are plenty of twists that caught me by surprise adding to the pure enjoyment of reading this book so I wouldn't want to take that away from anyone.
I will say that I loved this book it is a book that is extremely high up on my list of books I recommend to family and friends.
It is also going to make a great Christmas present for my step-dad!
This is the first book I have read from this author and from enjoying this one so much I will look forward to reading more of her work.… (lisätietoja)

Lisa Scottoline always weaves a good tale. Loyalty is set on the island of Sicily and covers the start of the mafia. Therefore, there are a few evil deeds, some murders, and revenge.
It starts when a young child is kidnapped and taken to a madhouse. Franco Fiorvanti did the crime for a baron, expecting to gain favor, and own his own lemon grove. Yet, Sicily's class system would never let him rise to power, so he chose a path of power grabbing - which is basically the start of the mafia.
In another thread, a young lawyer, Gaetano, tries to find the kidnapped child, and loses his job, and a child in the process. Mafalda, a young mother, has a daughter, Lucia, who is the color of milk, not olive skinned. She is outcast. Alfredo is the lone Jew in Sicily, as all other Jews were removed.
The is the story of good vs. evil, and which will prevail? Very interesting historical novel with a twist of mystery, too!
