Girl finds her mother is really her aunt. Aunt is her mother.

This was my first Scottoline book. I give it solid 4🌟s.
Very well written. Easy to follow. The book has few interesting twists. I've added Scottoline to my favorite authors list.

I listened to the audio book version of Betrayed during a road trip and the miles flew by. I almost hated stopping for bathroom breaks. :)

A little different from other Scottolini mysteries and I liked the depth. I am familiar with the geographic setting, which helped.

This was a fast-moving, quick read, with revelations that are surprising. Enjoyed "Don't Go", "Corrupted" and "Devil's Corner" much more.

I liked the book, good story line, but I really want the ensemble cast back! I don't like that the entire book is focused on just 1 lawyer. I miss the old style!

Good pacing, lots of plot twists & an ending you won't see coming! Awesome read.

Totally enjoyed this book. my first Rosato & Assoc. but I intend to pursue others. I thought the story was very exciting and I like the way Judy dealt with all the things in her personal life as well as her involvement in solving this case.

I thought "Betrayed" was the story of Iris's betrayal of Judy's aunt Barbara's trust and love. It was on some level; but it was much more. The betrayal involved Aunt Barb and Judy's mom too. Judy Carrier fights all sorts of odds and the book tells remarkably the story of this fight. I couldn't put it down.

I am a big fan of the Rosato & Assoc series, but frankly, Judy is probably the most boring character and the story was really weak. I only stuck through to the end because I am a fan.
