Accused by Lisa Scottoline

Mary DiNunzio has just made partner in the all-female law firm at which she works in Philadelphia.  She's also agreed to marry her boyfriend, Anthony, although she's having doubts about the union. When wealthy teenager Allegra Gardner wants Mary to act as her counsel to help her discover who murdered her older sister, Fiona, six years ago, Mary agrees. She feels an emotional bond with Allegra and would also love the challenge of the case.  Allegra believes that Lonnie Stall, the man in prison for Fiona's murder, is innocent. However, Mary and her associate, Judy Carrier, face an uphill battle because Allegra's parents are against her plans and believe that Fiona's killer is in prison.  As Mary investigates the case, part of her believes that Allegra could be right, but she has doubts about Allegra's state of mind after talking to her parents.  Will Mary be able to find peace in her personal life while helping Allegra? Accused is the latest novel in the Rosato and Associates series.  It will be published in October.
