It’s been great fun hosting a Lisa Scottoline Book Club at Towne Book Center & Cafe. Many of the ladies have read much more than I have but I can see why they are devoted readers. To be sure, I’m a noob to Lisa Scottoline; but I’m hooked nonetheless. So far, I’ve read these titles:
- Look Again (A World Book Night pick)
- Don’t Go
- Come Home
- Everywhere That Mary Went
- Daddy’s Girl
I’ve enjoyed all the book immensely, but like others, I enjoy the legal thrillers the most. I love that Scottoline tools around the Philadelphia area naming neighborhoods I’ve heard of or been in; it makes me even feel more part of the story. August’s pick was Daddy’s Girl about a law professor at Penn (coincidence?) who stumbles upon a horrible prison riot, falls in love, and gets pegged for murder. I loved it! There’s a great surprise about the Underground Railroad, which, if you know history, you know that the Quakers and Chester County, PA were a vital portion of the railroad.
At next month’s meeting we’ll play catch up in preparation for the big party at the author’s house in October.
Have you read any of Lisa’s books? Which are your favorite?
