James Patterson’s writing holds my interest. I can’t remember the name of the first title I read, but I remember his name. He has sold over 300 million copies of his books. He holds the Guinness World Record for being the first author to sell 1 million e-books. So I’m not the only reader to have learned I can trust his writing to be interesting.
For the last few years I’ve been reading his Women’s Murder Club. The last two days I’ve been reading 1st to Die. That’s the first one he wrote, not the first one I read. It isn’t important for me to read in chronological order. I read them as they come my way.
Lindsay Boxer is an inspector with the San Francisco police. The plot of the story concerns the bride and groom murders that Lindsay is working on. I like Lindsey for her ability to take happenstance and form a group of women to help her to work on the clues off the job. It’s pretty sweet that the three women she choses are in perfect spots to help; Claire Washburn is a medical examiner; Jill Bernhardt is an assistant D.A.; and Cindy Tomas is a crime reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle.
Most importantly along with the drama and emotions, Lindsay is introduced to a new partner to work on the newlywed murders, Chris Raleigh. Ladies we get a good shot of romance along with a crime thriller.
Perhaps the list of the Women’s Murder Club series will begin you on your way reading.
