This was my first James Patterson read, another thrilling whodunit mystery. I just kept on turning the pages, eager to find out who the killer was. The story took an unexpected turn around Part Three. After reading a bit further, I figured out who the killer was before the killer was revealed. I absolutely hate it when that happens. I was disappointed until I got to the very end, when the story took yet another unexpected turn. That's what I look for when I read a mystery novel. I like to be kept guessing until the very end. I will definitely continue with the Women's Murder Club series, see what's next for these women.
This was the first of the Women's Murder Club books that I read and immediately I was hooked. It is definitely a page turner. James Patterson does a great job of keeping the reader involved in the story. He makes you feel like you are really getting to know the characters while you also feel the adrenaline of the case that they are working on. This book they are trying to solve the case of a serial killer that is killing brides and grooms. You are kept on the edge of your seat right until the end.
Having first been attracted to the books by the TV show, I was pleased to see that the books are much better (are they not always better?). The whole series is hard to put down. They pull you in and make it impossible to put down. All mystery lovers will be impressed with James Patterson's writing style. The shorter chapters in the book make it an easy read for those on the go.
While I really enjoyed the plot from this book, I doubt I will finish the series. The relationships came across as forced and the dialogue didn't read as realistic either.. came across as a man writing how he THOUGHT a woman would act/speak/think/interact. The character development didn't ring true... It's an ok read.
