From the New York Times bestselling author of Think Twice and Look Again comes an emotionally powerful novel about a split-second choice, agonizing consequences, and the need for justice.

Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in her daughter Melly’s school in order to keep an eye on Amanda, a mean girl who’s been bullying her daughter. Her fears come true when the bullying begins, sending Melly to the bathroom in tears. Just as Rose is about to follow after her daughter, a massive explosion goes off in the kitchen, sending the room into chaos. Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to run to the bathroom to rescue her daughter or usher Amanda to safety. She believes she has accomplished both, only to discover that Amanda, for an unknown reason, ran back into the school once out of Rose’s sight. In an instance, Rose goes from hero to villain as the small community blames Amanda’s injuries on her. In the days that follow, Rose’s life starts to fall to pieces, Amanda’s mother decides to sue, her marriage is put to the test, and worse, when her daughter returns to school, the bullying only intensifies. Rose must take matters into her own hands and get down to the truth of what really happened that fateful day in order to save herself, her marriage, and her family.

In the way that Look Again had readers questioning everything they thought they knew about family, Save Me will have readers wondering just how far they would go to save the ones they love. Lisa Scottoline is writing about real issues that resonate with real women, and the results are emotional, heartbreaking and honest.

    " It was emotional, a thriller & full of drama that kept a great pace. Hard to put down and couldn't wait to pick back up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paige Blevins | 1/26/2014

    " Great book! It started off really fast, in slowed a bit but then picked up again! As I got to the last five or six chapters I couldn't read it fast enough! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Johnston | 1/3/2014

    " Great beach day read. Finisished it in 3days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 12/22/2013

    " A cut above a beach read. Good to cleanse the palate between other weightier books. I enjoyed it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 HeatherG | 12/3/2013

    " Listened to audio and it's read by Cynthia Nixon. Just horrible. The story is not that great either. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie Ormando | 12/1/2013

    " I should have given it 1 star... But the first few chapters were actually pretty good. Finishing this book was a chore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody Langeland | 11/11/2013

    " The book was very Judy Piccoult like until two-thirds of the way in, and then it turned into a Mary Higgins Clark mystery who done it? I would have preferred the focus to be one or the other and to have stuck with that all the way through. I liked the way Lisa Scottoline wrote, and will read more books in the future - hoping the bipolar nature of this one is a fluke. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzie | 11/9/2013

    " I loved this book I highly recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 10/6/2013

    " This book was good. The end was a bit unrealistic which I think made it a little hard to read. The last few chapters were especially slow and almost unnecessary. Overall a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Francis G | 8/25/2013

    " I really liked it but the ending seemed like it needed more. Even maybe just a page more. I turned the page, expecting another page or even another chapter but there weren't any. All in all, it kept me into it and everything was so unexpected. I do recommend though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dee Calabro Scherf | 7/31/2013

    " This book started off strong and with so much potential, just to fall completely flat. Lack of character development (except for Rose, who I really didn't love) and an unbelievable mystery storyline were two of my biggest problems. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LeeAnn | 7/8/2013

    " Liked the book till it got all Magnum PI. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 6/29/2013

    " Quick read. Had a couple of twists. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer David | 6/22/2013

    " I suppose its not a good idea to rate a book on how much you disliked a character in a book..... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie Buran | 5/27/2013

    " Scottoline usually writes gripping mystery and in this book she has wandered into Picoult's territory of moral issues. The story did have the twists and turns that you expect from her. An easy and enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna Nelson | 12/11/2012

    " I have never read anything by Lisa Scottoline before and this was really good! I will have to put hers on my to read list. Any suggestions?? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trude Sperry | 12/4/2012

    " I've read a book by this author before, but didn't like this book. Hard to get myself to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail Winger | 7/15/2012

    " Liked the beginning but didn't care for the unrealistic turn the book made about 1/2 way through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan Johnson | 6/6/2012

    " Good read, but the ending was almost too perfect. Seems like there should have been something tragic happen to make it have more substance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 5/24/2012

    " I loved it. It started so exciting and yes it was slow at times but it made you feel for everyone involved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Nicole | 3/6/2012

    " Pretty good overall, slow in the middle but lots of great twists. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brittney | 2/5/2012

    " I can't believe they published this! It was sloppy and lazy. Who puts a sprinkler fire extinguishing system in a potato chip factory full of oil?! REALLY!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs.coleman 4th Grade | 2/3/2012

    " Awesome tear jerker!! As a teacher I connected tremendously with Rose! enjoy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sybil Rice | 9/5/2011

    " This was a bit if a different sort of story for Scottoline. Action filled from the beginning and centered around the relationship between a mother and her daughter and the lengths a mother will go to protect her family. I read it almost in one sitting. Good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisha | 8/14/2011

    " Very fast read, can't put down type of book. Full of suspense from the beginning to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 5/22/2011

    " Summer mystery read--I liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosie | 5/22/2011

    " An explosion rocks the school cafeteria where a mother has been working. She has been keeping an eye on her daughter but during the explosion and evacuation she must face the choice of saving her daughter or the child who is the bully. The repercussions of her choice rock the community. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meg | 5/21/2011

    " This book "got" me in the 1st chapter and I had to stay up late for 3 nights to finish it. I had to force myself to not look ahead to see who did it and how it was going to end. Very good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keely | 5/20/2011

    " Good book but not great, read well/easily. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 5/18/2011

    " Not much here. Sure I get the preoccupied mother, but the story is thin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 5/17/2011

    " I really did enjoy this book and read it in less than 2 days. It's hard to put down. In the first half, you think about how the book will go, but then things completely change and it's kind of like reading a different book- goes from family drama to mystery/crime fighting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 5/17/2011

    " Loads of cliches and clunky writing, but I was totally caught up in the story at the beginning (and Cynthia Nixon does the audio version) -- and then a dozen twists and turns made it ultra ridiculous. Consider this one a James Patterson read alike. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Beth | 5/15/2011

    " Really good. Different from Scottoline's usual format. It certainly makes me look at volunteering with new eyes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 5/15/2011

    " Awesome. Could not put this book down... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Valerie | 5/15/2011

    " Started out strong, but then it moved in a completely unbelievable direction. Quick read, though. "

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

    " Not what I thought it would be sort of really surprising enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 5/13/2011

    " Couldn't put this book down! Lots of great twists! "
