RUNNING FROM THE LAW - Lisa Scottoline, narr Barbara Rosenblatt

Oh man! Going without Lisa Scottoline for a long time and then getting back to her books must be close to what a smoker feels when the smoker gives up the cancer sticks for a rather long while then has one with the gang.....NICE RUSH!!
I cannot believe it's been so long since my last Scottoline! Especially listening to one with the uber delightful Barbara Rosenblatt. Love her voice. She is in the top five of my favorite narrators.
Scottoline's main characters are all female lawyers and most, if not all, have a wicked smartass sense of humor. I respect smart smartasses.
This particular smart smartass is Rita Morrone. Or 'Miss Fresh' to her dad the butcher. Rita is hired to represent Fiske Hamilton, a prominent federal judge, when he is accused of sexual harrassment. Fiske is also the father of Rita's live-in boyfriend. And then everything goes to hell.
I love all of the pitch perfect characters, especially Rita and the old guys she plays poker with every Tuesday night.
Four legally smartass beans.

I haven't read a Scottoline in quite some time either. Good to know she has another good one out there! :)

Is Flesh and Bone on its way?

I am a big, but fairly recent, Lisa Scottoline fan. Haven't worked my way to this one yet, but I'll have to run out and get it now!

Joy: Sweetie, I am the world's biggest DORK! I had all of my books that were to go out this week and I left my notes on the computer at work, so I didn't know who was getting what! They will go out next week. Now I know who gets FLESH AND BONE.....sigh.....

Becky: I've liked Scottoline for a long while, but it's been forever since reading or listening to one. I have absolutely no idea how that happened. This one is super.

LOL, you are not a dork. And it's not a problem, Vickie - I really just didn't know if it should have been here by now. Thanks!
