    Cate Fante is strong and smart, but when she gets appointed a federal judge, even she wonders if she can do the job justice. She's in her 30s, and she feels like she's joining the world's most exclusive retirement village. But Cate keeps her doubts a secret. And, as it happens, much else. For she leads a dark, double life that she hides from everyone.

    Overall

    I've enjoyed all of Lisa Scottoline's books... till I got to this one. Her character Cate believes that just because she has a nasty little habit of picking up strange men, some criminals, in bars and bedding them she shouldn't be judged to harshly even though she's a federal judge. Then her nocternal habits make the papers and the writs really hit the fan. She suddenly realizes she'd better quit, the bar hopping, not the bench... right. This character just isn't believable. She's mad at her fellow judges because they have a bad opinion of her. Would THEY be so judged if the roles were reversed? I hope so. But none of the boys of the court are at issue, they're just worried how the court will look, duh. So with the facts against her she, you guessed it, argues the law.. and wins. She's back on the bench and everyone's all smiles, except the reader. Pass on this one and hope Lisa Scottoline can bring back characters we can believe in and root for.

    Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again. In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.

    Jeanne says: "A Good Read"
    "She's back!"
    Overall

    I have to admit, I almost didn't buy this book. I thought it would be like a few of the previous Kinsey Millhone novels, predictable and boring. But no, Grafton's back and this one makes up for quite a few stinkers. Great plot, great characters and action. A really good read (listen)start to finish!
