I love the family aspect to her character- her mom, dad, and the three Tonys. 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. Mary, who now must be in her 30’s, has survived the death of her first husband and is now a partner in the firm. I’m looking forward to reading more of this series. As a whole, this novel was quite an amazing one and keeps you wondering who the actual murderer is!
I really needed a good mystery and Accused delivered for me. Her sister Fiona was murdered six years scottolline, and despite the accusev Lonnie Stall pleading guilty, Allegra is convinced that he did not kill her sister. The characters felt scottolinne caricatures, not fully well-developed, stereotypical.

Accused: A Rosato & Associates Novel
She is a weekly columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer and scottolone columns have been collected in two books and optioned for television. Refresh and try again. We have his mother and her church and another lengthy chapter filled with religion.
I just didn’t find it to be an optimum reading experience. Allegra’s parents are adamantly opposed to re-opening the case, insisting that Allegra has a destructive and misplaced obsession about justice. I think the book might have assumed that you knew Mary and Judy from the previous series so I am going back and reading those first.
Just to find out how this female law firm has progressed since their inception. This was a “free” book from Avid Bookshop. We couldn’t infer anything at anytime. I enjoyed all the characters in the novel especially the Tonys and Mary’s parents.
It was real, sometimes annoying, sometimes subtle, and extremely funny. I know she is a popular author, and that’s lovely. I doubt I’ll try another one. But, then again, maybe not. I seem to remember Judy being It’s been a while since I’ve read anything by Ms. I remember thoroughly enjoying those books I had read. They are definitely the comic relief in the novel. Have Mary get married in Vegas or at City Hall before the next book so I don’t have to read any more about this situation.
All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own personal opinions. He ends up freed, which is great, but it just took forever to get there.
Interactions among these folks adds a touch of humor to the plot. A year-old girl hires an attorney with her trust fund money to find the “real” killer who murdered her older sister 6 years ago.

Mary makes her first decision as a partner and takes the case. Instead it read like she was an immature young woman, fresh out of law school, who treats her boyfriend quite horribly!
Judy has lost her passion and flair for going after the truth no matter what losa consequences – bring back the old Axcused. I thought that the book showed there is a slim line between a controlling parent and a caring parent and it delved into these areas very well.
Ships from and sold by Amazon. Now 13, she is using some of her trust fund to hire Mary DiNunzio and her firm to prove the man serving a 40 year prison sentence for her murder is an innocent man.
I’d say it’s an ok book, maybe not the best, but ok. One doesn’t get to be partner in a law firm by acting so flighty all the time. One thing that I enjoy about this series is seeing the characters grow. There’s a big problem however: The book was light, but the characters are interesting and likable. Just little things that either didn’t add up for me or were distracting which did not bother me in the earlier books in the series.
Many of the one or two stars are only stars nothing written so I can only guess at the reasons for the low rating.
