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.
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!
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 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 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.
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.
a little bit slower than the others in the series, but still good. lindsay must stop deadly fires and find out what happened to a very famous, very sick boy. she is also faced with realizing her feelings about her partner and her boyfriend.
