Betrayed follows the story of Judy Carrier and associate with Rosato & Associates. This novel is the second installment in the Rosato and DiNunzio series. This second entry, Betrayed, stars Judy Carrier, who has had the starring role in only one previous Rosato book. When Betrayed opens, Judy Carrier finds herself at a crossroads in her life. Her best friend, Mary DiNunzio, has just become partner and is about to become a bride, leaving Judy vaguely out of sorts. She's not jealous, but she's not happy either and she's wondering where her own career and love life are going. To make matters worse, she is rocked to her emotional foundations when she learns that her beloved Aunt Barb has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She races to her aunt's side, and so does Judy's mother, only to find that her aunt is dealing with the sudden death of a friend who had been helping her through chemo. The friend, Iris Juarez, was an undocumented worker at a local farm, but her death doesn't look natural at all, to Judy. Judy begins to investigate, following a path that leads her into an underground world far more dangerous than she ever imagined. Judy has to dig to uncover what happened to Iris, and at the same time unearth the secrets in her own family. The storyline got a bit too busy with Judy facing: (1) Being worried now that best friend Mary DiNunzio is a partner in the law firm which sets her in position as Judy's boss and changes their dynamics and also Mary is getting married and planning her wedding. (2) Having problems with her own live in relationship with Frank and Frank suddenly being written opposite of the way he has been. Judy had met and fallen in love with Frank when she represented his grandfather Pigeon Tony, a friend of her family's who was falsely accused of murder. Frank was a business owner, sweet, good to Judy, sexy, and responsible. Now all of a sudden the author wants to write him out so to bring in a new guy, a lawyer Judy went to law school with, so she demeans Frank's character, turning him into a lazy, irresponsible slob who always is watching sports with friends. (3)Finding out that her Aunt Barb has been fighting breast cancer and had not told her about it even when they were together or when Barb was having chemo. Now Barb needs a mastectomy so Judy is told and shocked yet has to help her because of the next reason. (4) Aunt Barb considers Iris, a secretive but sweet illegal alien who has helped her with her gardening (Aunt Barb is a landscape designer) and housework and helped her during her chemo, to be her best friend. Judy and her mom meet Iris once while at her Aunt Barb's helping her prepare for surgery but Iris gets a phone call that panics her so she leaves, dies in what appears to be a heart attack in her car n a street she had no business being on, then Judy finds $50,000 the woman had hidden in her aunt's home. (5) Battling evil priests and illegal alien drug dealers to find out what happened to Iris while obsessing over Frank, fighting with her mother, worrying about Aunt Barb, being attacked and nearly killed and... (6) Finding out Aunt Barb is her real birth mother who was an unwed teen mother who gave her to who she thought was her parents (Barb's older married sister) and that her birth father is dead which leads to face-offs and angst (7) Having a crisis at work when Bennie Rosato forces her to handle 75 settlements for a company found liable for asbestos deaths which she doesn't want to do but Bennie orders her to. Judy is being physically attacked while in agony over all of that. It's too many serious issues thrown into the pile. It's a good story but quite intense and this time you might need to take notes to keep up.
