Publisher's Summary

She's old-money Miami. He's barefoot Coconut Grove. The only thing they had in common was the law, until they faced each other in the steamiest murder trial of the century, a case that would make sparks fly, headlines scream, and opposites attract. Surrounded by crooks, con men, and a cast of colorful characters, Steve Solomon and Vickie Lord must solve the crime before they end up in ruin, in jail, or, worse, in bed.

We All Hold the Keys to Our Own Jail Cells

The above is Solomon's Law number 10. Read Solomon v Lord for all 10 of his witty rules. This is a fun legal thriller, with an ecellent insight into some of the trials and tribulations of criminal law, but it is not as much thriller as a dramedy. Very light reading, very little violence. Excellent reader, although his Yiddish pronunciations were awful. Highly recommended use of a credit, although if you are in your car, make sure its adults only.

Pretty good chick lit.

It has the element of suspense/legal mystery, since the characters are lawyers, but it's really more chick lit than anything else.

At first, I was thrown by the narrators voice bc he sounded much older than the 34 yr old male character, but as he read on, I got into it and thought he did a great job distinguishing between the different characters. Definitely a keeper!

Good banter, good characters---pretty good, as far as this genre goes.

Awesome Audible Book

I really liked this one! It was an easy listen and I felt myself pulling for the main charactors. Has some very comical moments, that made me laugh out loud. Have recommended this book to friends. Looking forward to more from Levine...

  • Overall

lots of fun, a great listen!

loved this book, husband and I listened together on a road trip. It's a hilarious light book, with lots of laughs and an excellent narrator. Although the second in this series is not as good, due to both content and change of narrator, I would highly recommend this one for sure!!

A fun read

While the plot was rather shallow, the text was witty and the narrator did a terrific job. This was a "laugh out loud" kind of book.

HOOHUMMM

This book title is listed under legal thrillers. In my opinion, it should be listed under comedy/drama. Long story line, too much filler. The aspect of an autistic child being the center of the plot, does cause one to pause and wonder, how much does our government interfear with family values and step it where they don't belong. Good read otherwise.

Junior High School Lust

I really enjoyed the first half of this very predictable, yet quite funny book. Towards the last few hours, the writer goes into great depth describing his juvenile fantasies of lust. It was funny at first, but it's way overdone. And Bigby is such a nonstarter, I can't imagine Victoria ever hooking up with him, despite her father.

Anyway, this is an okay book and will give you some real belly laughs, but it's not a book that you can't put down.

Solomon vs Lord

The book reminds me of the “Thin Man” movies. Enough twists and turns in the plot, humor, emotions and feelings the reader/listener can enjoy, and you won’t be disappointed with the story, characters, or reader.
