      With Lisa Scottoline, you know what you are going to get, with plenty of twists, action, tension and subtle humour thrown into the mix. Once again these themes are present in what is another intriguing read by an author who knows how to suck you in and keep you reading.Natalie Greco is law professor who is frustrated with her small and disinterested class. She is trying everything to get her students engaged. Little does she know when Nat agrees to visit a local prison with a colleague to conduc [...]

      I am beginning to wonder what is wrong with my tastes in books.I had hope for this one. I read the summary and it really got me excited about this book. A heroine who is also a teacher. Another thriller-type book. I am finding that I have drawn myself to this genre.The book started out decent enough. Most do. But with further reading, it started to become okay. Not great, not exciting, but enough stuff to keep me reading.It's a big book. Well over 300 pages - actually, 352 pages to be exact (I l [...]

      Lisa Scottoline easily passes the first book test with DADDY'S GIRL. This legal thriller is full of great characters and a twisting plot and guarantees that I will be reading many more books by this best-selling author.Nat Greco is a law professor at Penn State hoping to earn tenure. Her father is a rich construction magnate and her boyfriend Hank fits right in with her three boisterous brothers. Disaster strikes when Nat visits a local prison with another professor, Angus Holt, to teach a class [...]

      I have mixed feelings about this book, though overall positive. An adult-style Nancy Drew-like mystery.The narrative begins well, with sufficient detail and interest, so that I could not predicate how the story would unfold. Before I got too bored, there was sufficient action to renew my interest (prison riot) and I still did not know where there plot was leading. Then there was too much action for me, because it seemed like every outing Nat went on led to disaster (car accident, prison blocks, [...]

      Great book. Could not predict the ending and was very surprised. G

      I've read some of this author's other books -- ones set in a law firm where all the lawyers are female. This is another female lawyer, but one who is a law professor, not part of the firm. Her world branches out a bit when a fellow professor coaxes her out of her comfort zone to help teach a seminar in a prison. Her first session there, a prison riot breaks out. A prison guard dies in her arms, his last words a message for his wife that seems to make no sense, but sets her on a path that has her [...]

      Lisa Scottoline does the same thing over and over - but she does it so well! She kept me up late last night finishing this page-turner. This book is set in the same environment as her many other books about the all-female law firm, but thankfully we have a new character, a law professor who accidentally gets involved in a prison riot. Scottoline knows how to turn up the heat on her poor protagonists. If you're in the mood for a page-turner that's light and fun, I recommend this. It would be perf [...]

      Good read--couldn't put it down

    • Terry says:

      "Daddy's Girl" is a fairly entertaining novel characterized by short chapters, a simple writing style, a fast-moving plot filled with lots of suspense, and an unusually strong protagonist who constantly succeeds in escaping dangerous and violent situations. The plot, however, also is full of coincidences and improbabilities that prevented me from being entertained and enthralled by the action.The “girl” of "Daddy’s Girl" is Nat Greco, an assistant professor of law at the University of Penn [...]

    • Dawn says:

      I seem to have a lot in common with Nat on the surface. We both have three brothers and both love books, Nancy Drew and Maine Coon cats. But I'd like to think I have more of a backbone than she does at the beginning of the book. And while my brothers can certainly be obnoxious and immature at times, my family is nowhere near as horrible and disrespectful to me as hers is. I was practically yelling at her to stand up for herself! But I really loved the evolution of her character throughout the bo [...]

    • Adrienne says:

      I am beginning to wonder if it's the reader's digest version of these books that I am reading or the books themselves that is so terrible. So this is a tentative review to be updated later after I have read the full version of this book.This was nothing much of a mystery that was filled with over exaggerated characters who talk in all caps the whole book. This is annoying if the author didn't know. I wasn't terribly impressed with the male characters they all were really resoundingly cliché and [...]

      I’ve been doing some heavy non-fiction reading lately -- most recently, the kind of historical/political stuff about US misdeeds that usually has me wanting to set something on fire. At times like these I find some light fiction helps leaven things out, and among my first go-tos in that column is Lisa Scottoline. I recently finished one of the novels in her Rosato & Associates series which I gave pretty high marks, more because I enjoyed the plot idea than because of the quality of the wri [...]

    • Ashley says:

      I enjoyed the author's writing style. The characters and their interactions seemed realistic, and she does a great job describing the environment. It's fast-paced, action-packed, reveals information at an appropriate rate, and is full of unexpected plot twists.I did, however, have a small problem with how the climax panned out; bullets seemed to end up in very convenient places. (view spoiler)[Instead of having a forest chase with helicopters or something more exciting to end, everything finishe [...]

      Natalie Greco, only girl in the Greco construction family, is a law professor who loves her job and feels that she doesn't quite fit in to her football-loving, loud and raucous family. A colleague at the university, Angus Holt involves her in a clinic program he runs at a local minimum security prison. While they are there a riot breaks out and Natalie is attacked by a student in the program Angus and Natalie are teaching. As Natalie tries to find help, she ends up offering consolation and medic [...]

    • Amanda says:

      WOW! I simply could not put down this book! Natalie takes detective work to a whole new level. The best part about this Scottoline novel is the unexpected twists and turns. Being an avid reader of Scottoline , I can usually figure out where the story is going, but not with Daddy's Girl! This book really focuses on the murder and law involved, with less emphasis on ther personal life of the main character. Scottoline exposes Natalie's life, traits and flaws gradually throughout the story. Her par [...]

    • Andrew says:

      I have to admit to being a tad disappointed in this book. Don't get me wrong it was okay but not more than that for me, hence the three stars. I just felt that I never was fully engaged with the story. It had some great potential but took a while to get going. There was a good twist at the end but not sure I fully bought the twist. I will be persevering in read more by this author as I enjoyed the previous story I read by this author.

    • Charlene says:

      Not as riveting as some of Scottoline's other books I've read, until I got to the last quarter of the book and couldn't put it down to go to sleep. Now I'll be sleepy the rest of the day. (But it was worth it!)

    • Jake says:

      There were small things that I didn't like or didn't find believable (or too coincidental), but nothing I couldn't get over, but I still really liked it until the last 3 chapters. A few things happened in those chapters that ruined it for me.

    • Jess Van Dyne-Evans says:

      I liked this! Quick paced law-thriller with HUMOUR and interesting (non-mob or crack whore) characterswill be reading more of this author!

      Law Professor Nan Greco is caught up in a prison riot while teaching a class at the prison. She soon finds out things weren't as random as they first appear.

    • Kathy says:

      In Daddy's Girl, Natalie Greco's quiet and idyllic, if not predictable, life turns chaotic when a violent riot breaks out while she is teaching a course at the local prison. Nat rushes to give CPR to a grievously injured prison guard. Before he dies, he asks her to deliver a cryptic message with his last words: "Tell my wife, it's under the floor." The dying declaration plunges Nat into a nightmare. Suddenly, the girl who has always followed the rules finds herself suspected of a brutal murder. [...]

      Natalie Greco loves being a law professor, even though she secretly feels like Faculty Comic Relief. She loves her family, too, but as a bookworm, doesn't quite fit into the cult of Greco football, headed by her father, the team captain. The one person whom she feels most connected to is her colleague Angus Holt, a guy with a brilliant mind, gorgeous façade, and a penchant for helping those less fortunate. When he talks Nat into teaching a class at a local prison, her world turns upside down.A [...]

      Natalie "Nat" Greco teaches law. Her colleague invites her to guest teach at a prison externship, which happens to have a riot the day she's there. She is attacked, and as her colleague fends off her attacker, she seeks safety, but finds herself giving CPR to a Corrections Officer with a knife wound. He asks her to give a cryptic message to his wife. Twists and turns in the story leave her a fugitive from the law as a suspected cop killer. However, she figures out the subterfuge and solves the c [...]

      I could have sworn that I had read at least one book by Lisa Scottoline, but apparently not in the life of this blog. Here again is a book that has been sitting in my TBR for longer than I care to remember.Natalie Greco is a law professor, the daughter of a wealthy building family, used to getting what it wants. She is asked by another professor to take part in an outreach legal studies programme in a nearby prison. While they are there the prison goes into lockdown, a guard and three inmates ar [...]

    • Joanne says:

      In really enoyed this one. The story revolves around Professor Natalie "Nat" Greco and her fellow professor, Angus Holt. Professor Holt invites her to go with him to Chester County Correctional facility to give a lecture. She's a little unsure at first, but decides to go, as it is a minimum security prison and he assures her he's been doing this for a while and nothing has ever happened. Well, on this visit it does! A riot erupts, and in the ensuring confusion and chaos, Nat gets separated from [...]

      The portrayal of her jock-oriented family is a little humorous. And, oooh, that ending.Natalie Green is a law professor who is trying to keep her students engaged. When her colleague Angus Holt talks her into guest-lecturing at his class at a local correctional facility, a riot breaks out, she is almost raped by a huge thug, and she hears a correctional officer's final words, "tell my wife it's under the floor." Haunted by delivering this message, she finally reaches the wife and does so, and wh [...]

    • Alison says:

      Lisa Scottoline's writings do keep the reader hooked on the story to read to the end. I like what turns out to be strong female characters, although I still have a difficult time believing the characters would integrate themselves into investigations as much as they do and take the risks they do (but, maybe that's what makes the story-lines catchy). This particular story, had something for everyone: a loving family with members that care for one another; a boyfriend (perhaps who became too invol [...]

    • Brandi says:

      I liked the original premise behind the book, and I liked the idea of using Shakespeare to teach a justice course. That being said, once that aspect was all said and done and it stated going into the crime area of things, it ended up getting far worse. It became a chore to read. Everything just kept going further and further beyond the realm of plausibility, just getting absolutely ridiculous. If it isn't plausible, it doesn't make for a good story, and there were so many implausible things that [...]

    • Dejanee Smith says:

      The book could be realistic because the main character Natalie was in the middle of a riot in a prison she was teaching at and people were killed, a dying man said to her ''its under the floor''. Later she gets accused of murder and has to find out what really happened. Natalie found out that the riot was a distraction for a prisoner to get out and she now understands what ''Its under the floor'' means the prisoner and his accomplices were going to escape through a tunnel beneath the floor of th [...]
