Reviews about Daddy's Girl (7):
My sister and I generally have similar tastes in books and she has long pushed me to read those written by Lisa Scottoline. I haven't particularly been a fan; I find her to be more interesting as an essayist/columnist than mystery writer. However Daddy's Girl may have brought me over. She uses an interesting device to keep the main character directly in the mix even though it is written in the third person and the writing overall is excellent. I don't want to comment on the story line as I would hate to give away the almost-ending, but my one criticism is of the action near the end where the heroine pulls out her (albeit short-lived) triumph. It did strike me as borderline fantastical. Never-the-less I do recommend this book.
Which does the law back: law or justice? Is law justice, or is justice law? But what if they are not the same? Which is the correct choice?

As with her previous books, Lisa Scottoline "Daddy's Girl" does not disappoint her readers, but challenges their reasoning abilities. The theme of the novel is law vs. justice: does one equal the other? If not, which should prevail, law or justice? What differences or likenesses do they share? Who should decide? College professors of the legal system should be able to distinguish which is right or wrong, shouldn't they? This novel involves the only daughter (in the midst of three brothers, a rather domineering and yet neglectful boyfriend, and an extremely wealthy and over-protective father)
becomes entangled with a prison riot, several murders and a prison escape. She is forced to rely on herself to free herself from all of these situations, as well as determine whether she supports the law or justice.
I am not a fan of mysteries, but this one was different. It moved along and gave the main character a different personality. It keeps you wondering about the relationships she is developing and the future of her job, as a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania. It has a suspenseful plot and some historic findings that lead to solving a criminal happening.
I really enjoy Lisa Scottoline but this book just glided over parts that were unrealistic. Finding an underground tunnel and scaling out of it without trouble. The fact that her family was st her brothers side due to s heart attack and not really concerned with her week long evading the law. Come on get a little more realistic. She also says she did more research for this book over many others in the past. I think she went down a rabbit hole to include things she was interested in but weren’t really relate to
I LIKED this book but I didn't care for the ending. In order to avoid a spoiler alert I'll just say that I was thrown when the other main character was not who Scottoline made him out to be. There were too many parts that didn't fit and I felt betrayed by the author. Yet I was drawn to Nat's family who even though they related in a dysfunctional manner proved they could change at the end. I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a suspenseful plot.
I , like the author am a lifelong Philadelphia area resident, but this was my first time reading one of her books. I really enjoyed it. The plot moved quickly and has enough twists to really keep me engaged. Looking forward to reading more of her stuff
I read incessantly, but, it's been a while since I was this excited about a book. It was the first time in a while that I didn't want it to end. The characters are complex and very interesting. I really enjoyed Nat Greco and hope there will be more books with her as the lead character. The history aspect was also interesting. As a Quaker I am intrigued with stories of the underground railroad, and found this an additional bonus to the story.
Sometimes life makes you feel like you fell down a rabbit's hole, and that you have met the Mad Hatter. Nat Greco is an untenured assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Life is proceeding along somewhat normally until a colleague takes her along to a state correctional facility where he has a program of teaching and legal assistance. A prison riot breaks out. Nat is attacked. People are killed. Suddenly Nat finds herself drawn into a different world.

Something is going down, and Nat finds herself involved. She starts to get nosy, and finds herself falsely accused of murder, set up for unknown reasons. She finds herself on the run. Some people may think that she does stupid things, but her father sums it up when he tells her that she is book smart. She lacks the street smart abilities needed to survive in an urban jungle.

Nat, of course, must survive to get to a blazing finish. But wait, you thought the story ended with chapter 47. Chapter 48 goes in a whole new direction. You should know that the author always puts an unexpected twist at the end of her novels. Do NOT peek ahead. You need to read the entire novel to understand the real ending.

I would note that the author is an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, used as the setting for much of the story. The novel is well researched and well written. I think it is the best novel yet by the author.

I believe the meaning of the title is clear. People are trying to direct how she should do things (father knows best), while she is trying to go in her own direction. She has trouble getting people's attention.
