    This book pulled me in immediately. Great plot, great pace, and great character development, and most importantly great wit and humor. If we compare to the writing of Janet Evanovich, I would say Scottoline is a notch above her in terms of sophistication. Her characters are more than cartoon-like, and the suspension of disbelief is easier.

Her characters are more than cartoon-like, and the suspension of disbelief is easier. I was a bit disappointed because I was expecting more courtroom scenes, but in this one our heroine (extremely engaging Benedetta Rosato - 'Benny') is on the lam because she's accused of murdering her ex-lover and law partner. So for most of the book she's a fugitive. The only reason I couldn't give it 4 stars was the plot resolution (i.e. the ending) was rather weak and somewhat contrived, although that didn't stop me from enjoying the rest of it. This is my first Scottoline book and it won't be my last.

"Bennie" Rosato is screwed when she is blindsided by her business partner & former lover Mark who has decided to start his own law practice, taking associates, clients & the offices. Angry over this betrayal of their hard work of building the practice together, she has a loud argument with Mark who is later found murdered. Bennie becomes the prime suspect and is soon on the run when she is determined to find out who murdered Mark and prove her innocence, only things just keep getting worse & she is unsure who to trust. Enjoy! The only thing that I didn't like was how she "cared" for the kitten. She did save it, but...

    This read provided good background information on Benedetta "Bennie" Rosato. I have read a few books in the various series and always felt like I needed and wanted to know more about Bennie and now I do. I was surprised that Mary was not included in this story. Enjoyable. Suspenseful. Entertaining. This read provided good background information on Benedetta "Bennie" Rosato.

    BEWARE. I DON'T FLAG SPOILERS. BUT I DON'T PUT MY REVIEWS OUT ON ANY FEED, EITHER. Disclaimer - my "reviews" are not truly that. Rather than a critical analysis, each "review" is mostly my quick summary of the plot -- so I can refresh my unreliable memory. Also, I find that once I journal a book, it's easier for me to give it away.

Also, I find that once I journal a book, it's easier for me to give it away. That's important, as our house is getting "overgrown" with books. --- Here's Bennie Rosato in the firm she originally founded - Rosato & Biscardi. It's a first-person novel, which can be intense. (Later on, e.g., in Dead Ringer, Scottoline continues about Bennie in 3rd person.) Bennie's accused of the murder of Bsiscardi, a male who recently dumped her romantically and had announced plans to break up the firm, too. In short order, She gets accused of other murders, too (a pharma exec, a young male animal-rights protester). To clear herself, Bennie has to go deeep undercover. She simultaneously poses as homeless (smearing herself w. manure-based garden fertilizer) and high-power atty. at the large Grun firm where she used to work. (Improbably, she immediately gets into the firm's computer network and is able to write inter-office memos, request purchases, reserve rooms, order up computers, etc.) so she can come in periodically to research the legal matters that got her in such a fix. Turns out the perps behind the 3 deaths are 2 female associates in R&B -- Biscardi's newest lover, who just wanted his money, as well as another minority female lawyer, who has connections to fraud and violent crime within the animal-protest movement. Grady Wells is Bennie's lover-in-the-making in this installment. I do't remember that relationship in subsequent books (which I've already read) but it seems that long-term they do work out as office peers. Bennie's mother gets a temporary reprieve fr. her mental illness by electro-shock therapy (which Dick Cavett, incidentally, swears by as helpful in his own illness and healing). Cute moment ends the book: Bennie makes up to the elderly Grun partner whom she has hoodwinked. Although he appears at times to be senile, he's bright enough in final scene to get her to apologize out loud for thinking, in her prior employment w. the firm, that he was a dastard bastard (actually, the verbatim is "tyrannical bastard.")

    I'm torn on what to rate this one because it probably deserves 2 1/2 stars. I liked the mystery and I mostly liked Bennie but how stupid do you have to be to think it's acceptable to give a kitten Diet Coke and a Snickers bar and lock it in a car all day?! I was annoyed that she first tried to give the kitten milk but it got so much worse. Anyone reading this book, do NOT give your cat ANY of those things, especially chocolate.

    Over the top unbelievable to the point that it was simply stupid. By no stretch of the imagination could I picture the hot-shot lady lawyer, on the run from the police, crawling around on the basement floor of an abandoned building looking for a place to sleep or barging into a courtroom and pleading her case to the judge while a trial is in progress. This is the type of brain rot that makes non-readers. Not recommended ... unless you are in the mood to do a lot of eye rolling.

    So far I've read four Scottoline mysteries, in order, and one thing I can say across the board is that they're all great fun. Some more more "legal thriller" than others, some are more believable than others, but I haven't met a one that hasn't had me turning pages non-stop from beginning to end, sleep and other plans be damned.

Some more more "legal thriller" than others, some are more believable than others, but I haven't met a one that hasn't had me turning pages non-stop from beginning to end, sleep and other plans be damned. For sheer readability, Legal Tender does not disappoint. I think I read it in 5 hours. In a single sitting after coming home from work, no less. Scottoline can write a tight enough narrative that just keeps pushing you forward. There wasn't much of a legal mystery to be had here -- mainly it's a whodunit, with, of course, our dear heroine as the primary suspect -- and some of the plot devices were a bit over the top (view spoiler)[-- Honestly? No one recognizes the woman in the bright yellow car and the bright red hair all over town? Not even the half-dozen cops she ends up crossing paths with? No one? -- (hide spoiler)] but it's all in good fun. Talented, idealistic attorney Bennie Rosato is confronted with the death of a close colleague and all the circumstantial evidence points in her direction. She knows no one will believe her, and so she spends the rest of the book sleuthing on her own while coming up with creative ways to avoid capture. It's her scheme to outwit her pursuers and hide in plain sight that provides some of the most entertaining and believability-challenging moments of the story. Unlike other Scottoline novels I've read, the character development gets fairly short shrift, which is a bit of a shame, because she does that so well. There's also a minor romantic subplot, but the main fun of the story is the cat and mouse game.

And why frame her? Bennie is very inventive and creative, that’s what I liked about her. It was so smart to hide in plain sight. I think this was an enjoyable read for most part, but towards the end, I would’ve like the author to elaborate more on the actual murderer(s). I wanted more explanations. How? Why? I felt bereft. It really felt like the author was in a hurry to finish the book. So all along I would’ve given this book a three, but seeing the end really disappointed me, it’s a 2,5 ** stars.

    Bennie Rosato with her ex-lover Mark, are partners in a flourishing law firm. The book opens with Bennie trying to save the day for Mark’s new lover, Eve. She’s making a huge mashup of a discovery witness and Bennie sacrifices her dignity by dropping a glass and pouring water all over Mark to take the attention off Eve. While it worked, it looks like a jealous spurned lover getting her own back. When the discussion about her behaviour inevitable arises, Mark confesses he’s dissolving the partner Bennie Rosato with her ex-lover Mark, are partners in a flourishing law firm. The book opens with Bennie trying to save the day for Mark’s new lover, Eve.

While it worked, it looks like a jealous spurned lover getting her own back. When the discussion about her behaviour inevitable arises, Mark confesses he’s dissolving the partnership and is moving her out. To say Bennie’s pissed is an understatement, and there’s a bit of a scene with Mark and the young associates. The next morning Mark’s body is discovered, stabbed to death. Of course Bennie is the chief suspect. Bennie’s alibi is that she was rowing on the river at the time of the murder. Witnesses? Nada. After the search warrant is served, the murder weapon is found in Bennie’s apartment. With no other choice, Bennie disappears, she knows she needs to solve the case quickly as the proof against her is strong and no one’s looking for another murderer. Just before this all happened, Bennie successfully defended Bill from a nuisance charge. She sees that his girlfriend is a loose cannon whose association will get Bill in serious trouble and tries to separate the two, unsuccessfully. Then the CEO that his girlfriend was threatening to kill ends up dead as well, surprise, prime suspect Bennie. Bennie has no other choice, she needs to hide and solve the case. The police have no allegiance to her. Her record shows her success at exposing dirty cops, so she’s truly on her own from the murderer, the police and her associates.

    This was good. The murder mystery/storyline itself was nothing new, really. But what made it enjoyable and deserving 4 stars was the main character, Benny Rosato. She is funny, sarcastic and smart, and having her serve as the narrator was perfect. Accused of her ex-business partner / ex-lover's murder Bennie gets herself in plenty of trouble and has a cat with the best name ever. Fast, fun read. This was good.

    Somehow I skipped some of the early books and skipped to those written in the 2000s. Horrors! So is am going back to read those skipped. I alsway enjoy Scottoline’s books. This one is mostly about Bernie Rosato as she tries to clear her name from a murder charge. Some of the scrapes she gets into are somewhat implausible, but I still couldn’t stop reading.

    Loads of fun, and totally unbelievable. So many things happen in this book - multiple murders, lawyers on the run, and romance (to name a few). Scottoline is still writing sassy one-liners with sarcasm and humor, and she always keeps the story going.

I started with the latest book in the series and am now going back to read them all. This particular book is about the Rosato in Rosato and Associates before there even was a Rosato and Associates. In this book, 6 foot tall lawyer Benedetta "Bennie" Rosato is firecracker of a lawyer who is a partner in her own firm Rosato and Biscardi Associates. The Biscardi was Mark Biscardi who had been her long time lawyer boyfriend and he has dumped her for a dumb bimbo lawyer he had brought into the firm- Eve. As if that isn't bad enough, she finds out that law associates in the firm are hunting jobs in other law firms and one tells her that they've heard the firm is closing. Mark shocks her with the news that he is leaving the firm to open his own firm and that he found her an office elsewhere and leased it for her since the townhouse Rosato & Biscardi is located in belongs to him. This is not happy news. At midnight while she is out in her scull on the water boating (and crying), someone is in the townhouse murdering Mark. Evidence is planted in her home and she gets accused. Another of her associates- Grady- confesses he is in love with her, thought Mark was selfish and greedy, and asks to defend her. Before long, Bennie has to make a run for it and the way she made hiding places while managing to solve the case is amazing and clever. She also manages to help a friend who is a heroin addict, rescue a kitten, get something started with Grady, and try to help a boy who is involved with a cold blooded woman who has blood on her own hands- all along with two of Bennie's associates- until the boy gets killed and that is blamed on her too because the victim's mother told her where he was. Bennie's in real trouble and this page turner kept me gasping and reading as fast as I could. I love this book!

    "Legal Tender" is the second Rosato and Associates mystery by Lisa Scottoline. Like the first book, this is a light read. The dialogue is often dry humor, which I like. The action is over the top of reality, but that didn't interfere with my enjoyment. Ms. Rosato is an interesting character. I will probably read the next in the series.

    This was even better than Everywhere that Mary Went, the first in the Rosato & Associates series, although it deals with different characters. Good plot, very little unfortunate language, and good characters--I look forward to continuing the series.
