As always, this book by Patterson was a page-turner, but some of the plot lines seemed rather ludicrous, as if Patterson is running out of material or forcing out books faster than good ideas come to him.

Honestly, I wasn't impressed. It seems like Mr. Patterson picked a bunch of crazy things to throw together with this latest story starring the Womens' Murder Club.

Although the mystery of who killed Michael Campion was interesting, the whole Yuki/Twilly event was just plain stupid.

Overall, another quick read that will only take you a day or so, but it's not as good as the previous books in the series.

Yay! After 2 "eh" books in the murder mystery series, this one seemed to be a little more back to what I liked about the first ones. I still wish it was more of the women doing the solving than mostly Boxer, but I'll take it. Looks like #8 comes out next year, I'm really looking forward to it!

"7th Heaven" is good, quick reading. It had some flaws but overall, it was an enjoyable book, right in line with the quality you'd expect from Patterson. Add this one to your shelf!

Another good read in the Women's Murder Club. This one had three storie lines intertwined -- fire-based murders, a missing sick young man, and the court drama. Yuki, the young lawyer, shared the spot light with Lindsey for this story. And again an unexpected twist at the end. I did feel the the other characters in the 'Club' were tossed in and their events did not really fit into the overall story line -- kind of an after thought to make sure they were included and not forgotten. If you have stuck with the Club this long you will enjoy this book. I look forward to the next one too.

This is a fast read by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. It's the 7th installment in the Women's Murder Club series and features the usual characters including Lindsay Boxer, Cindy Thomas, Yuki Castellano and Claire Washburn. A high profile missing persons case and a series of deadly arson fires keep the action moving along at a high pace.

As usual James Patterson hits a home run. This, for me, is the the best of the Women's Murder Club. It was gripping from the first page.

This was a shorter Women's Murder Club book. I liked it, but it seems to me that James Patterson has run out of ideas. Hopefully the next installment will have something new to it. I would still recomend this book to all.

Fires are being set to homes of the wealthy, leaving the residents dead. Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner, Rich Conklin, are trying to find the murdering arsonists when they get a tip on another prominent case. The case involving the disappearance of Michael Campion, the son of a former governor, has been at a standstill but an anonymous tipster provides a new lead. Soon, Boxer and Conklin have a confession, but will it stand up in court? Women's Murder Club member and Assistant District Attorney, Yuki Castellano, will have the case of her life as the trial starts. Meanwhile, will Boxer and Conklin find the deadly arsonists?

The members of the Women's Murder Club are at it yet again in 7TH HEAVEN. Each book is written to stand alone although the friendship of these women has grown throughout the series. There are hints about past incidents that fans of the series will appreciate. It should be noted that newcomers to the series will miss the character development that has built slowly throughout the series, as some of the members of the Women's Murder Club only make brief appearances in 7TH HEAVEN.

Patterson and Paetro delve a bit further into Lindsay Boxer's psyche, this time examining her relationship to Joe versus her commitment to work. Yuki's insecurities are also examined as she is up against a female attorney not known for losing. Will these two members grow stronger as they face adversity?

James Patterson and Maxine Paetro deliver another fantastic thriller with 7th HEAVEN. The fast pace will have readers rapidly turning pages to see just how things will unfold. 7TH HEAVEN is yet another hit from these two talented authors and is easily recommended.

I like the Women's Murder Club stories, and this one is no exception, but I think this one was written for people with ADD. There wasn't a chapter that was more than 4 pages long, and there was plenty of empty space on pages that could have shrunk the book to about 200 pages. But beyond that, the story was a fast paced murder mystery that can be read in a few hours.

This one just didn't capture me like the last.

Lindsay Boxer is battling two cases. Who is killing the wealthy families of San Francisco, not just killing, but binding them up and setting fire to their homes and what happened to Michael Campion, the son of the ex-governor. Everyone knew that he had a heart condition, but when he was last seen walking into the home of a prostitute, the rumors start flying; and with no body, Yuki has quite the uphill battle in prosecuting the very innocent looking prostitute he was seen with. In addition to a battle for her own life.

Lindsay needs the full support of her Women's Murder Club to sort out all the details of these two case, but when she decides to take a little time for herself, well, tragedy hits a little too close to home.

Another decent Patterson. I was a little disturbed by the fire parts, my friends all liked it, but fires but me in stories. I think I am loosing track of who is who and may need to go back to the beginning. Seems like this one was more about one character than them working as a group.

I read this book in one day. There were more than one story-line, like in the last book featuring the women from the "Women's Murder Club". However, I had expected that might be the case this time, and really enjoyed the quick-read, the short chapters, and the stories. The attitude-change of expecting more than one story-line, and enjoying the book for what it was, made this very much a book worth reading. The multiple storylines had made one of the previous books feel 'jumpy' to me, with the way the stories were fit in together. Expecting that this one, too, might be more than one story certainly made for a good read, this time.

The Women's Murder Club members have two horrible crimes to solve. The first involves the disappearance of the former governor's son and the second a series of arson firers each of which left people burned to death. A young prostitute confesses to being with the governor's son when he died and claims she and her boyfriend cut up the body but no trace of the body can be found. Nevertheless the girl goes on trial. As Yuki tries to conduct the trial she finds herself the target of a stalker. Meanwhile the fires and killings go on and Lindsay begins to suspect someone close to her. Another typical James Patterson story while reads quickly, is interesting and has a sudden twist at the end.

Loved this book and the narration in the abridged audio cd version.
I am now wanting to read the book again and see what is abridged about
the book. I loved the story and getting to know the 4 main characters
with Yuki still taking the place of Jill.
Has several different stories in one but worth the read and well
recommended.

I totally enjoyed 7th Heaven. I'd noticed, again, that mystery wasn't the most gripping event here but it's the way that the whole story was unfolded, page by page. including how Patterson had put more depth to his characters, how they thought, felt, etc. The 2 cases here are not what you would call "unique" in a way that that you'venever seen these same plots before in TV, movies or other novels... bit the ending... the ENDING! The ending made me say "Whoa" and "Awww" ..." ...well, respectively.
