  • Kaceey - Traveling Sister
    This is one of the best fun legal thriller series on the market today. This is book #6 of the series and as always, I suggest starting at the beginning to truly get acquainted with all the diverse and colorful characters. You’ll love every one of them...and every quirk that goes with them!! (Plenty of those to go around!) Once again, the lawyers of my favorite law firm are at it again. This book finds them up against their most challenging neme...

    4 FEARED STARS 🌟🌟🌟🌟“ Is it better to be loved? or feared?“Love picking up a book from a favorite series, it is like coming home... and how much fun would it be to come home to that DiNunzio Family! This is the sixth book in the Rosato & DiNunzio series, but it could absolutely be read as a standalone... Lisa Scottoline is definitely the queen of the legal thriller! I love all the lawyer jargon and court room drama... this time Mar...

    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...
  • Brenda - Traveling Sister
    Feared is the sixth entry in the Rosato & DiNunzio series and is the second one I have read in the series. I read the one previous to this one Exposed. Jumping into a series this far in isn’t something I normally do as I like to really get to know the characters and see how they change and develop as the series progresses. I do suggest to start with some of the earlier ones to really get to know the characters but I did find it easy to connect ...

A baby shower for Mary is interrupted when papers are served announcing that three men are suing the law firm for reverse sex discrimination.

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free, electronic ARC of this novel! Bennie and Mary are back in “Feared”, the new Rosato and DiNunzio novel by Lisa Scottoline. Bennie, Mary and Judy are shocked to the core when they are served with papers that claim reverse discrimination, for refusing to hire male lawyers. When their only male associate, John, admits there is some truth to this and quits the firm, the ladies must focus all of ...
  • Monnie
    Half-stars aren't possible at most book review websites, so I'll note that my actual rating is 3.5 stars. For the most part, that's because this, the sixth in the series featuring law firm partners Bennie Rosato and Mary DiNunzio, didn't quite reach the level of others I've read. The plot seemed more than a little contrived, the ending borders on silly and I rather quickly tired of the pregnancy "humor" (especially since Mary, the mom-to-be, most...
  • CL
    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...
  • Bam
    *3-3.5 stars. This is my first taste of Scottoline's Rosato & DiNunzio series. I was forewarned that the series must be read in order but I persisted and felt the author filled in enough detail that it can definitely be read as a stand alone mystery. Having said that however, I wasn't that engaged by the story itself so perhaps a familiarity with the characters would have helped. It took until about 70% before I felt the mystery really started co...
  • Sherri Thacker
    Wow!! Who knew this is my 12th book by Lisa Scottoline and I always love her books. This book is the 6th book in this series and I’ve only read #3 in this series besides this one. I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since it came out and was thrilled when the publisher and NetGalley sent it to me for my honest review. It grabbed me from the first page but shortly I started to get bored with all the legal words that were used so I felt li...
  • Jeanne
    While I thought this story was a bit long and too detailed on legal jargon at times, I really liked this story. The antagonist, Nick Machiavelli, is not hard to hate with all of his actions, but can he redeem himself? There is much sadness in this story, but the author really pulls together an amazing ending (which always bumps up the rating for me). The "Tony's" are always good for some comic relief!! 7 out of 10.
  • Skip
    Rosato and DiNunzio are sued for reverse discrimination by three lawyers claiming they were not hired because they were male, with the vindictive Nick Machiavelli as counsel. Bennie and Mary are horrified to hear that their one male employee has interviewed at other law firms and, inadvertently, made damaging comments. Then, John Foxman is murdered in his apartment, and the primary suspect is the firm's wacky senior associate, Judy Carrier. As th...
  • Kathleen
    Scottoline’s latest offering in the Rosato and DiNunzio legal thriller series will more than satisfy her many readers. The women’s legal firm will handle complicated legal issues, deal with a murder of one of their own, and survive the ruthless shenanigans of Mary’s archrival, Nick Machiavelli. Mary will deal with all of this while being in the third trimester of her pregnancy. [The pregnancy references are a bit too plentiful!] The Italian...

    I really enjoyed this installment in the series. The audiobook was masterfully narrated. And the plot kept me guessing. Loved it!!!
  • Trina
    Rosato and DiNunzio are BACK with the latest installment to the series, Feared. Feared is immensely engaging; I read it in 24 hours and it did not disappoint! It was so well-written I just needed to know what was going to happen next.Expertly written by Lisa Scottoline, Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio and Judy Carrier are defending themselves against three men who announce that they are suing the predominately female law firm of Rosato and DiNunzio ...
  • Jeff Dickison
    I really wanted to give this book 3.5 stars, but since Goodreads doesn't allow such goings on, I had to make a decision. I wound up giving it 4 stars because I love Mary Denunzio and I found it an interesting read in spite of its flaws. First flaw: the reverse discrimination law suit seemed extremely contrived. Second flaw: the reasons the zen-master gave for murder seemed terribly confused and unlikely. Third flaw: whole ending was weak. But I h...
  • Nancy
    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...
  • Randi Daeger
    Don't start this book at bedtime.....it was impossible to put down. I would love to meet Lisa Scottoline, she is a gem.
  • Joyce
    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...
  • Donna
    3.5 stars rounded up because I like this series. The law firm of Rosato and DiNunzio is sued for discrimination by three men who say they weren't hired because it's an all woman law firm. Well, they do have one male associate, John Forman but apparently he's not as happy there as everyone believed. Partners Bennie, Mary, and Judy intend to fight this lawsuit tooth and nail. Then John is murdered and Judy becomes the prime suspect. If you like leg...
  • Stephanie
    4.5 Stars Lisa Scottoline's Rosato & DiNunzio series is one of my favorites although I love all of her books and have faithfully been reading every one since her first book was published in 1994. So it would not at all be a stretch to say that I'm a humongous fan of her novels; reading one is like sitting down with family, albeit a loud, noisy Italian one at times, but you can't help but just love her books, the characters, and feel like they ar...

    *****4 Stars*****This is my first book by Lisa Scottoline and is book #6 in the "Rosato & DiNunzio" series. I think this book overall was a good read. The story and character development were great. I really felt like I got to know a lot of the characters well and became immersed into the story. Rosato and DiNunzio are partners at a law firm who become under attack with a reverse discrimination against them for only have one male employee. While ...
  • Jean
    Golly, an all-female law firm is sued for sex discrimination. The one male employee is murdered. Mary is in late-term pregnancy. I have read all the Rosato series books. I must admit that Bennie Rosato is my favorite character in the series. It seems to me that the last few books have featured Mary DiNunzio and Judy Carrier as does this one. It was great to have Anne Murphy back. I was beginning to think Scottoline had dropped her from the series...
  • Chris
    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...

    Feared is the 6th book in this series and I was thrilled to reunite with Mary DiNunzio and all of the other characters. In this installment, the law firm is being sued for reverse sex discrimination by three males. The lawyer for these men is the one and only Nick Machiavelli, who is intent on destroying Mary and her firm after she beat him in court. Throughout the course of their investigation someone from their firm is murdered and their firm l...
  • Ayekah
    Another amazing twisted read from Lisa. Thrilled to revisit the old neighborhood with all the family, neighbor and friend craziness that only Mary's neighborhood in South Phillie can bring. Along with that Mary is pregnant, they are facing a lawsuit, an employee in murdered and they're in the middle of a major litigation and Mary's instincts point her in one direction. Back to the old neighborhood and their long time nemesis Machiavelli. Perfect ...
  • Cindy
    I felt as if I were back among old friends as I read this latest in the DiNunzio/Risotto series. The book started out well and at the halfway mark, I was feeling like I was into a 5 Star book. There was tension, stress, humor and sadness as the law firm attempted to fight against the lawsuit that had been filed, and against Mary’s enemy Machiavelli. That’s when it started inching downhill and ultimately imploded at the end. The ending was so ...
  • Lorrie
    This latest book by Ms Scottoline is awesome! It’s always like visiting family when you read about Mary DiNunzio. She and Anthony are expecting a baby! This makes for a real interesting read.
