Save Me, by Lisa Scottoline
Read, reviewed, and released in May, 2014
It could have been a good book if Ms. Scottoline had stuck to one or two themes, but there was too much going on. It was all over the place: family relationships, school bullying, political corruption, high-risk crime-fighting. Given Rose's reticent, anxious personality, it seems unlikely that she would have boldly gone into an unfamiliar factory looking for clues to the explosion and fire at her daughter's school. The bits about her mother's alcoholism and her own slight over-indulgence of wine one evening seemed to be thrown in for no good reason. I will not be looking for any more books by this author.
