Everywhere That Mary Went by Lisa Scottoline

Who can you trust when everyone you know is a lawyer?

Mary DiNunzio has been slaving away for the past eight years trying to make partner in her cutthroat Philadelphia law firm. She's too busy to worry about the crank phone calls she's been getting -- until they fall into a sinister pattern. The phone rings as soon as she gets to work then as soon as she gets home. Mary can't shake the sensation that someone is watching her, following her every move. The shadowboxing turns deadly when her worst fears are realized and she has to fight for something a lot more important than partnership -- her life.
My Thoughts
I really have to stop listening to or reading the same author back to back.
This was also an audio and the same narrator as the last one. As soon as I heard the voice, I was not wanting to listen to it. As I have a long drive I decided I didn't have much choice since it was all I had with me. Not only that, being that it was on my mp3 I felt I had to give it a try.
A book has to be really bad for me to not finish it.
Again, it seemed like a short book. It was an ok book for me. I will have to read one of her books to see if that makes a difference in my opinion of Lisa's writings in case I am just that unimpressed with the narrator. I was looking at other books by her and they seem to have the same narrator.
As far as the story, Mary seems like a nice person although not very aware of things around her. Or maybe I should say she doesn't seem to be alert to other peoples feelings or behaviours. She did have a close friend who watched over her which was refreshing. Good friends are very hard to find. I was surprised at the ending but it was still just ok for me.
I will wait awhile before listening to another of Lisa's books.

Well, at least the book sounds like it had a twist to it! Try reading one of hers Lori. She really is a good author. I have never listened to one of hers in audio and now I know I never will. Thanks for the heads up that they all seem to be read by the same narrator.
