Anne Murphy is smart, gorgeous, and young, the red-headed rookie at the Philadelphia law firm of Rosato & Associates. She leaves town for the Fourth of July weekend to prepare for a high-profile trial, but when she buys her morning newspaper, her own photo is plastered all over the front page. And the headline, Lawyer Murdered, supposedly refers to her. Anne sets out to find her killer, playing dead in order to stay alive.

She tries to go it alone but quickly realizes that she'll have to trust people she barely knows; colleagues who hate her guts, a homicide squad who wants her out of the crime-fighting business, and a new love who inconveniently happens to be opposing counsel. The investigation takes all of Anne's boldness and ingenuity, plus a pair of red satin hot pants. But her knack for courting trouble makes it almost impossible for Anne to play well with others, defend the lawsuit, and fight her urge to sleep with the enemy. Then an unexpected event places her in lethal jeopardy and leaves her with everything to lose, including her life. Download and start listening now!

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathleen | 1/26/2014

    " I definately wasn't a fan of this one. The story really wasn't that believable and the dialogue was not realistic. A friend gave me a few more of hers to read, hopefully they are better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/18/2014

    " Kept us entertained on our road trip but nothing too exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/4/2014

    " Listened to this one in the car, great book. I really enjoy this author, I have heard her compared to a female John Grisham. I like that her lead characters are strong women. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheri Houston | 12/31/2013

    " I usually like Lisa Scottoline books for alight, fast read. However, this book dragged and I didn't like the flat characters of this book. In truth, it was a chore to finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawn | 12/17/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kae Cheatham | 11/23/2013

    " Upbeat character and good writing. Story/mystery was so-so "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 9/3/2013

    " This was my first Scottoline book. I have read many of them out of order but have found that it does not affect understanding. Love the female comaraderie. Contains violence and some profanity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan E | 8/28/2013

    " Just finished Courting Trouble...some good parts, but drags in too many places, not enough legal substance to keep in with the overall plot...wasn't a page turner. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diane | 7/17/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginny | 8/14/2012

    " A thriller that is somewhat lighthearted and humorous, but characters lack the appeal of someone like Stephanie Plum and friends. Some interesting twists in the plot, but not much depth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 7/15/2011

    " I'd never read anything by this author before, but I've been needing something mindless to read while I study for the licensure exam, and this fit the bill perfectly. I quick, fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Halloran | 6/24/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 5/13/2011

    " It was an ok mystery and I didn't figure out that the main suspect was a red herring at all but Anne Murphy was beyond stupid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 8/22/2010

    " Funny thing about this CD is that at one point or another we had begun listening to it. However, I really do not think we had ever finished it. It was not too bad, the main character took her life unnecessarily into her own hands a few too many times. "
