A sure treat for Scottoline's legions of fans, Lisa Scottoline: The First Two Novels is the ultimate collectible. Everywhere That Mary Went introduces one of Lisa Scottoline's most beloved characters, fledglinglawyer Mary DiNunzio, who uses her wit -- and her heart -- to catch a killer. Mary's been trying to make partner in her cutthroat Philadelphia law firm, so she's too busy to worry about crank phone calls she's been getting, until they fall into a sinister pattern. Soon she can't shake the sensation that someone is watching her, following her every move. The shadow-boxing turns deadly when her worst fears are realized, and Mary has to fight for something a lot more important than partnership -- her life. Final Appeal, winner of the Edgar Award, features law clerk and single mother Grace Rossi. Starting over after a divorce, Grace takes on a part-time job with a federal appeals court judge, but she doesn't count on being assigned to an explosive death-penalty appeal. Nor does she expect ardor in the court, in the form of an affair with her boss, Chief Judge Armen Gregorian. Then the truly unimaginable happens, and Grace finds herself investigating a murder. She searches for the truth, unearthing a six-figure bank account kept by a judge with an alias and following a trail of bribery and corruption. In no time at all, Grace under fire takes on a whole new meaning.

    This was a fun book--quick read. Scottoline is a good storyteller. This was a difficult mystery to solve. The ending took me by surprise. I'll pick up others that she has written.

    I enjoyed 'Everywhere That Mary Went' as far as the story went, I did not see the ending coming, though I didn't think the language was necessary. I like 'Final Appeal' even better.

    This kept me wanting more as I’d fall asleep at night. I highly recommend this book. Especially since I didn’t see it ending like it did. I’m an audiobook reader and the performance was excellent!

    I had no interest in reading the second story, as it was a standalone. The first story was okay. I'd read the second one in the series just to see if it's worth continuing.

    Everywhere That Mary Went - 4 stars This is the first book Lisa Scottoline wrote about Mary DiNunzio and Judy Carrier. I wish I would've read this one before most of the others because everything fits together better, makes more sense. The entire story was really interesting, but you can tell that it's Scottoline's first book by the way she writes. It's still a really good book though, despite the amateur-ish writing.

The entire story was really interesting, but you can tell that it's Scottoline's first book by the way she writes. It's still a really good book though, despite the amateur-ish writing. In this book I began to like Mary DiNunzio more than I had before. She became more real than she's ever been to me and it was also interesting to learn exactly what had happened to her husband, Mike; because in later books they mention Mike but never what happened to him. I've always really liked Judy Carrier and that remains the truth now. She's got a good sense of humor and a lot of spunk. In my opinion, she's got an almost devil-may-care attitude.. but not quite. Somewhere near it though. I've always loved Matty DiNunzio, Mary's father, because he's just so humorous and kind-hearted, if not a little over the top at times. I didn't find that he was portrayed as well as he is later on in this book. Then again, he wasn't that big of a character in this novel, neither was Mary's mother, Vita. I don't think she was portrayed as well in this book either. It was nice to see that Mary's sister, Angela, had a bigger part in this book. Mary and Angela are twins, and they're personalities are like day and night. It was fascinating I was really surprised by who the killer was. He was definitely not who I had in my mind! All in all, it's an enjoyable read! **SPOILER ALERT** Final Appeal -5 stars At the beginning of Final Appeal I was surprised to find that Mary DiNunzio and Judy Carrier weren't character in this book. All the books I've read by Scottoline have these two women in them. This change was interesting and I think that this book was better than most of the others I've read by Scottoline. Grace Rossi was an interesting character, I saw bits of Judy Carrier in her.. There were similar character traits that made me see Grace more like Judy. Grace made this book, she was the perfect main character for this story, in my opinion. Grace's daughter, Maddy was really cute. She made the book more light in a way. After reading this book, I've realized one majorly, specific thing that Scottoline carried into this book. The mothers of the main characters are always pushy in a way. They both find that eating is very important and are pushy on the way things should be done. They express their feelings somewhat through food and beverages. I find that interesting, almost makes them more lovable; I mean who doesn't like a hot meal? :) I was very much taken aback when I found out who the killer was. I felt that the alleged suicide of Chief Judge Armen Gregorian wasn't a real suicide - that it was staged, and I was right. This book was a-may-zing! I hope that eventually Scottoline writes another book with Grace Rossi as a character. :)

    While out front talking to friends at work we started to talk about authors friend asked if I ever read any LS books and I said no she said that I should try her out. I did and I picked up the first book. Wasn't too thrilled about it (sorry Lisa) but my friend said she was a good author so I proceed to the bookstore and bought 2 more of her books and I am so glad I did because now I'm hooked.

Never judge a author by their first book b/c as I have learned the author gets better the longer they write especially while they are developing characters. Miss the lawyer series b/c those books to me were the best. Would I recommend LS to my friends heck yeah she's a hometown girl. Her lawyer books are based in Philadelphia where I work and Mary lives in South Philly which is 20 minutes from my home.

    I read a Rosato & Associates book out of order before this (it was recommended to me by my grandma, and we were unaware that it was part of a series), and because of this, I knew and liked the character Mary DiNunzio already. The first book, Everywhere That Mary Went, tells the story of Mary as a young lawyer, trying to make partner in a prestigious Philadelphia firm. The second book, Final Appeal, features Grace, clerk to a Philadelphia chief judge who mysteriously turns up dead as a result of I read a Rosato & Associates book out of order before this (it was recommended to me by my grandma, and we were unaware that it was part of a series), and because of this, I knew and liked the character Mary DiNunzio already.

The second book, Final Appeal, features Grace, clerk to a Philadelphia chief judge who mysteriously turns up dead as a result of suicide, or at least that's what everyone believes. I really enjoyed Everywhere That Mary Went, but Final Appeal confused me at first with all the legal terminology after just a few pages, and I wasn't a fan of the characters but then I gave it another a shot and finished; it was just okay. I'm looking forward to reading more of Lisa Scottoline's older novels.

    Not sure exactly how to rate a book that contains two books. I liked both, but "Everywhere That Mary Went" more than "Final Appeal". Since I've read a couple of the later Mary D'Nunzio novels already, this one made me wonder when she joins the law firm in those later books. "Final Appeal" almost lost me. The first third is filled with a lot of legal activity which I don't understand and didn't find to be particularly well explained. It seemed like a very poor way to start a novel in which I expec Not sure exactly how to rate a book that contains two books. I liked both, but "Everywhere That Mary Went" more than "Final Appeal".

    I love the combination of legal details and humor in Lisa Scottoline's Rosato books. I found in reading the whole series that her writing craft got better with each novel. The first few were fun stories, but they were eye-rollers with all the adverbs and head-hopping points of view, making them a slog fest. The standards today for getting published are much higher. But every book got better, and I'm glad I stuck with her. They are a delight. Keep going. Her later writing is worth it.

    I heard an interview with Lisa Scottoline and decided to read her Rosato and Associates mysteries. "Everywhere That Mary Went" is the first in the series. The characters kept my interest, and I enjoyed the off beat humor. This series are an easy read when I want to be entertained.
