Publisher's Summary

Anne Murphy is smart, gorgeous, and young, the red-headed rookie at the Philadelphia law firm of Rosato & Associates. She leaves town for Fourth of July weekend to prepare for a high-profile trial, but when she buys her morning newspaper, her own photo is plastered all over the front page. And the headline, "Lawyer Murdered", supposedly refers to her. Anne sets out to find her killer, playing dead in order to stay alive.

She tries to go it alone but quickly realizes that she'll have to trust people she barely knows; colleagues who hate her guts, a homicide squad who wants her out of the crime-fighting business, and a new love who inconveniently happens to be opposing counsel. The investigation takes all of Anne's boldness and ingenuity, plus a pair of red satin hot pants. But her knack for courting trouble makes it almost impossible for Anne to play well with others, defend the lawsuit, and fight her urge to sleep with the enemy. Then an unexpected event places her in lethal jeopardy and leaves her with everything to lose, including her life.

What the Critics Say

    "Excellent book!"

    I loved this book! Very intriguing story, although a bit far-fetched on how real legal cases unfold. If you are even a little bit interested in the law, you will like this book. I liked the main character, the "bad guy", and the "good guys." I liked how the all woman law firm backed their associate and helped her in her time of need. I especially liked her "free thinking" and butt kicking in court. It was a very good listen/read, and I will definitely download more books by this author.

    "A good time!"

    This was the first Lisa Scottoline book that I "read" and it hooked me! Her characters are fun, wiity and likeable. I've heard several of the abridged books read by Kate Burton, but non compare to the unabridged versions read by Barbara Rosenblat. If you like law mysteries give this a try!

    "Not bad"

    This story was okay but a little predictable. Since it is short, it is good for a quick listen and for something to pass the time while driving.
    Would recommend for a good, quick listen. Just don't expect a major mystery here.

    "Fabulous Scottaline Read!!! More great Associates!"

    I LOVED IT!!! Great Bennie & Associates read! This puts beautiful, red-headed, Anne Murray in the lead role as the attorney 4 a client called Chipster. The owner of Chipster is a sleaze, a former boyfriend is trying 2 kill Anne, her absentee mother shows up, Anne finally has a love interest, & Anne finally has "girlfriends". The narrator does a super job!! I really like voice for the Associates! ENJOY!!

    "Still issues with this performer"

    She read at least one other book in this series and it seems, though this story was better than the other, that she has her mouth full of food...or gum!!

    "Liked the story, but some audio issues"

    I really enjoyed the storyline and the mystery, had me wondering about the facts and trying to reason it all out which I liked!
    However, the audio on this was inconsistent - sometimes the reader was quieter then would suddenly get louder (for no apparent reason). It was easy to tell when it switched to a different recording. A few times it even sounded like you could hear the reader turning the pages.

    "Awful"

    Don't waste your money. The storyline was painfully predictable. The characters cliched and irritating. Only the talent of the narrator made it possible to tolerate it to the end.

    Story
    "Heroine you want to see dead"

    If you like the lead to be a woman making such poor choices in the name of being "strong and independent" that you are cheering for the bad guy and that makes truly independent women who can safely use, carry and store firearms look poorly then this is the book for you.

    What disappointed you about Courting Trouble?

    Reader, story line dragged, writing style unimpressive, profanity


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Scottoline again?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Barbara Rosenblat?

    ??


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It is a mystery and I did want to have the mystery resolved so I kept listening.
