A Scottoline For Every Season

ScottolineSeason_2015Friends, it’s no secret we’ve got a huge lady-crush on Lisa Scottoline. She’s HILARIOUS, generous, incredibly down-to-earth, and a phenomenally talented, prolific writer. Fortunately for us readers and rabid fans, there’s a Scottoline for every season! (And free galleys of her newest Rosato & DiNunzio book, CORRUPTED!)

Every Winter, Lisa explores the complex themes of emotional justice in her standalone novels. EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES was a knockout New York Times bestseller with FOUR starred reviews, an Indie Next pick, a People Magazine Best Book of the Week pick, AND the movie rights were sold.
We can’t wait to see what she does next in MOST WANTED, coming April 2016.

Every Summer, enjoy the “short, sharp musings on life from the perennially hilarious mom-daughter duo” (Good Housekeeping) when Lisa and daughter Francesca team up for their essay collections, including DOES THIS BEACH MAKE ME LOOK FAT?, HAVE A NICE GUILT TRIP, MEET ME AT EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE CLAIM, and more.

Every Fall, delve into the heart of the dynamic relationship of the Rosato & DiNunzio series. Longtime fans are thrilled to see Bennie Rosato and her all-female law firm back in action with the relaunch of the series (ACCUSED and BETRAYED).

In her newest book, CORRUPTED, Bennie Rosato is forced to confront a failure in her past and try to make it right. Thirteen years ago, Bennie took on Jason Leftavick, a twelve-year-old boy who was sent to a juvenile detention center after fighting a class bully. Bennie couldn’t free Jason, and to this day it’s the case that haunts her. Jason has grown up in and out of juvenile prison, and his adulthood hasn’t been any easier. Bennie no longer represents those accused of murder, but when Jason is indicted for killing the same bully he fought with as a kid, she sees no choice but to represent him. She doesn’t know whether or not to believe his claims of innocence, but she knows she owes him for past failures-of the law, of the juvenile justice system, and of herself. Forced to relive the darkest period of her life, Bennie will do everything in her power to get the truth, and justice.

It’s already received a starred review from Booklist:
“Both the juvenile case and the murder case are compelling on their own, but the combination and the glimpse into Bennie’s younger self make this a wonderful addition to an always-strong series. Scottoline is an A-lister all the way, and her Rosato series is always an A-plus in terms of reader interest.”

We love it and would like you to consider nominating it for the October 2015 LibraryReads list (nominations due 8/20), so we’re giving away galleys of CORRUPTED to adult librarians currently employed in the U.S.!*
