  • Jenny
    Feared by Lisa Scottoline is a first for me. It’s the first time I have read a book that is part of a series where I haven’t read them in sequence. It is number six in the Rosato/DiNunzio series.Feared is a great book on its own and tantalizingly enough to wet my appetite for more of her books. I will be adding the previous five books in this series to my summer reading.The law firm of Rosato and DiNunzio is busy with one of the biggest cases...

    I have read Lisa Scottoline for many years and have enjoyed her books immensely. This book was no exception. It was a great read. The law firm is being sued for "male" discrimination and the ladies cannot deny they have been advocates for woman. When it comes to light their one male employee feels he has been slighted and mentioned in the law suit it goes from bad to worse especially when there is a murder of one of their own they are close to. A...

    It was Lisa Scottoline's Rosato and DiNunzio series that brought me to reading her and Mary DiNunzio remains a favorite character. Who can resist a South Philly girl with a close Italian community that includes so many Tonys--Pigeon Tony, Tony 'Two-Feet', Tony-From-Down-the-Block, not to forget Mary's husband Anthony! Just reading about her mother's gravy makes me hungry for pasta.In Feared, Scottoline once again puts Mary in harm's way. But this...

    This was a solid 4.5 stars elevated to a 5. The firm is representing a small security company that is suing two larger companies for unfair business practices. The only male associate there was sitting as second chair on this case and resigned because he thought he had little or no future there. It is also being sued for reverse discrimination by three men who claimed they were not hired by the firm because they were men. Mary is very pregnant an...

    This is another book with the background of the Rosato and DiNunzio. Of all the books that this author writes these are my favorite. The plot is that the law firm gets sued for discrimination by Mary's archenemy Nick Machiavelli which the ladies have to defend. Early in the case a friend is murdered and Judy is a person of interest. The firm is trying to solve the murder and defend their firm that Nick is trying to destroy. I always wondered wher...

    There's nothing quite as satisfying as finishing an Amazing book and the latest installment in the Rosato & DiNunzio series, proves no different. It was long awaited and very much worth the wait!If you've been a fan for awhile, then you're quite familiar with Mary DiNunzio's crazy family and friends and for me, they help keep the series alive. I love the Tony's and can even picture them in my head, they played a vital role in this book and it was...

    This is the sixth novel in the Rosato & DiNunzio series. At the beginning of this book we find out that the girls have been served with a lawsuit that claims reverse sexual discrimination. As they work through the details, Bennie, Mary, and Judy conclude that they might be the victims of a setup perpetrated by an old nemesis, Nick Machiavelli. It seems that his bruised ego has made Machiavelli turn his sights on Rosato & DiNunzio, and his depravi...

    As always, LS gives us another addition to this series that’s unique & so very entertaining! A reverse sexual harassment case, a murder, family & friendship interactions way beyond the norm all wrap up into a fast paced read that’s hard to put down! Thanks to St. Martins Press for this early copy:)
  • Shelleen Toland
    I was reading the synopsis of this book on Goodreads and it is not what the book is about at all. This is the 6th book of this series and just as good as the others. When three men announce that they are suing the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination—claiming that they were not hired because they were men—Mary DiNunzio and Bennie Rosato are outraged. To make matters worse, their one male employee, John Foxman, intends to ...
  • Diane
    *The current book description on Goodreads is NOT the same as the book, maybe they will correct this soon**Feared by Lisa Scottoline is another thriller which has the law firm of Rosato & DiNunzio in trouble this time. The story is about how far a person will go for money and their own selfish motives at the expense of the lives of others. This is another fast-paced story with a good measure of learning about shell companies and how easily a mali...

    In this latest thriller, Nick Machiavelli returns to sue the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm for reverse sex discrimination—claiming that three applicants were not hired because they were men. Their lone male employee, john Foxman, makes matters worse when he admits that he is looking for another position because he doesn't believe he will make partner as a male in an all-woman firm. Bennie and Mary feel betrayed when John admits he may have express...

    I have been a Lisa Scottoline fan for many years; I have always enjoyed her books but the Rosato & DiNunzio books are my favorites.Mary is very pregnant and now the law firm is being sued for “reverse discrimination” because they only have one male employee. They are representing a small security firm and their only male attorney feels that he should have been named “first chair” in the firm’s representation of the security company. The...

This time Nick is set on humiliating Benny & Mary and possibly bankrupting the firm.

    Lisa Scottoline has a new book in the Rosato and DiNunzio series (book six) called Feared. The title is perfect as three men have decided to sue Rosato and DiNunzio Law Firm. They alleged that the firm has discriminated against them as men, because they are an all woman law firm. This law suit seems to be suspicious until they speak with John, their only male member and then it strikes them Machevillis is behind all of this. Mary and her family a...

    Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's press for an early copy of this book.Another excellent book by Lisa Scottoline! I love all of her books - the funny essays collections she writes with her daughter, the stand alones, but my favorites are her Rosato & DiNunzio series! Once I received this book, I set aside everything else I was reading and doing and just read!I love the characters - Bennie and Mary, of course, but also Judy, Anne, Marshall, ...
  • Leslie M.
    Scottoline’s latest is another legal thriller in the Rosato & DiNunzio series. While this is the sixth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone (though I would recommend going back and reading the others). Tension is high throughout the story, up to the satisfying conclusion, complete with an unexpected twist. The female cast of characters (all lawyers) is a lot of fun with the various personalities, as well as the trouble that seems ...
  • Pammy
    Ok first off...I only gave this 4 1/2 stars because this story was a little slow in the beginning. Once you get past the slow, hold on, get ready for a super fast paced story. Now for the review....FEARED is a super awesome story, it’s fast paced with some twists you aren’t going to be expecting. Three women work together in a law firm. They also employ a male attorney, but apparently he feels out of place and told the wrong person. John’s ...

    I was lucky enough to receive a complimentary copy of Lisa Scottoline's new book "Feared." My opinions expressed about this book are completely my own.I love the Rosato and DiNunzio series, FEARED is the sixth in the series. I recommend reading the series in order, without the background of the other books, you would be lost.I always enjoy the humor in this series and generally laugh out loud while reading. Lots of twists and turns and intrigue, ...

    This book could be read as a stand-alone but you'd miss out on a world of great reading.The stakes are high for the firm of Rosato & DiNunzio & Associates when it is the focus of a lawsuit and smear campaign by Mary's nemesis, Nick Machiavelli.The plot is detailed with excitement as Mary, Judy, Bennie & Ann work together to solve a colleague's murder as well as a client's corporate life and death lawsuit.Mary's extended South Philly family provid...

    Mary DiNunzio, law firm partner, mom-to-be, and daughter of South Philadelphia, has her hands full in Scottoline’s newest novel. She’s sure her old nemesis is behind the reverse discrimination suit filed by three men against the women she works with, her colleague is brutally murdered and her best friend is a person of interest in the case, and someone is out to slander the firm. Mary’s lucky, though, because her colleagues, her husband, he...
  • Michelle Willms
    The firm has been blindsided by a reverse discrimination suit and the hits just keep on coming. The suit is being up by the firm's old enemy Nick Machiavelli, so they know there's going to be a huge battle ahead. What the friends don't expect is betrayal from within and murder. Can they save their firm?This is a fairly tightly written thriller, with a few good twists and turns. I wasn't very thrilled with the insertion of one character's inner tu...

    Lisa Scottoline hit it out of the park once again with Feared. This book, the sixth in the Rosato and DiNunzio series (though it is good enough to stand on it's own), follows the lawyers as they are hit with a personal lawsuit and cope with the loss of one of their own. While I did get a big bogged down by the technical details of one of the lawsuits (furniture software just isn't my thing), I still found myself staying up late and getting up ear...
  • Marj Ward
    Another excellent Rosato and DiNunzio book. Number six in the series. In this fast paced page turner, the firm is sued by their old enemy Nick Machiavelli alleging they discriminate against men. The firm is defending an anti-trust lawsuit. One of their colleagues is murdered and Judy is a person of interest. Mary is seven months pregnant. Lots going on. In typical Scottoline writing, there were parts that had me laughing out loud and others wipin...

    These ladies get themselves into a few messes but this is one they might not recover from. Just when everything seems to be settling down at Rosato & DiNunzio the firm is hit with a whopper of a lawsuit aimed at them for reverse discrimination by a bitter colleague and the one male attorney on staff seems to be the problem. Things get even worse when that male attorney is murdered and more secrets come out. Even Mary's family and the Tonys have t...

    A solid entry in the Rosato and DiNunzio series. Machiavelli is back, making life miserable for the entire firm when he files a reverse discrimination lawsuit against them, trying to irreparably damage them. Things go from bad to worse when quotes from John Foxman, one of the firm's lawyers, are brought to light. One of their "family" is murdered, Mary has some pregnancy issues, and secrets come to light. A fast paced read that will keep you turn...
  • Sherrie Saint
    I can not tell you how much I loved this book. I have been a Lisa Scottoline fan for years and love everything she writes but Bennie and Mary are like reading about your family. This book was an emotional roller coaster with the death of John Foxman and the Rosato law firm being sued and then the birth of Mary’s baby. The Tonys make my heart smile. William is a fantastic character and I hope that we see him again. After a tough week, getting to...

    “Feared” is Lisa Scottoline’s latest novel starring the law team of Rosato, DiNunzio, and Carrier. In this latest novel, the firm is embroiled in a lawsuit by a rival law firm, and the sudden death of one of their associates. The team is in a race against the clock to save their business and defend one of their own against a false charge that could change her life. I was given an advanced copy of this book, and all of the opinions expressed...
  • Carol Dass
    There is so much to love about this book and about the whole series! This is number 6 in the Rosato and DiNunzio series. I do enjoy the cases the lawyers get involved in but even more, I love all the family stuff that goes on. I love how the family calls Mary, Mare and how Mr D is always talking very loud. I adore Mrs D and the great mother and friend she is. I hope there will be many more in this series!
  • Darla
    A big thank you to St. Martin's Press for a paperback ARC of this new installment in the Rosato & DiNunzio series. Mary has been on of my favorite characters since I read "Everywhere That Mary Went" and it is heartwarming to see Mary about to become a mother. Meanwhile, there are lawsuits and a murder to deal with as well as the legal machinations of Nick Machiavelli. The action is nonstop and the murderer was a total surprise to me. I know fans ...

    I received a free copy from NetGalley. Are there really only six in this series so far?! Mary tells the story in this one. Not sure I would want to read this one without having read some of the others for background on some of the characters. Quick read. Interesting story. Worth the time if you are already familiar with the series but don't start with this one.
