An instant New York Times bestseller in both hardcover and paperback, Courting Trouble was dubbed a “Sexy Summer Read” by Cosmopolitan Magazine. Kirkus referred to its “trademark razzle-dazzle” and Booklist raved, “The bestselling Scottoline has a knack for writing catchy whodunits with wit, charm, and mischief, and she doesn’t disappoint here.” Chosen as a selection for the Literary Guild, Book-of-the-Month Club, Doubleday Book Club, and a Main Selection for Mystery Guild, Courting Trouble stars the newest addition to Rosato & Associates, Anne Murphy, a rookie redheaded lawyer, who was first introduced in The Vendetta Defense. She is very spontaneous, very sexy, and up to her high heels in trouble. When Anne leaves town on Fourth of July weekend to prepare for a big case, she awakes to newspaper headlines claiming she has been murdered. She decides to play dead in order to stay alive, and must solicit the help of her not-so-chummy colleagues at Rosato & Associates in order to catch her “killer.”
