Guilty Wives and Come Home






Yes, I bought another James Patterson novel! And, I'm glad I did because this one was pretty good.

Four friends head to Monte Carlo for a few days of R&R from their normal lives. They meet rich people and end up on a yacht. The next morning they are arrested for murder.

This book describes what it is like inside a French prison and what their court system is like. I found it very interesting....sort of like that TV show Locked Up Abroad.


















Then I moved on to Come Home. This was another quick read. Jill is a pediatrician and mom. She's engaged to Sam. One night, her ex-stepdaughter appears out of nowhere asking Jill to help her solve her father's murder.

Jill has always felt guilty for not keeping in contact with Abby after her divorce from Abby's father so she reluctantly begins to help her while trying to balance her medical practice, her present family, and her past.

I'm posting this using an app called BlogPress on my iPad. I'm not sure it will work very well but it's worth a try since the more I use my tablet the less I want to use my laptop and that's why I'm always so late keeping this blog up to date. So, anyway, here goes..........

The James Patterson/David Ellis book sounds really interesting. A French prison, eh? I can't say I know much about the French justice system.

I have a few Lisa Scottoline books I've been meaning to read. Your mention of Come Home reminded me I need to read them!

How do you like your iPad? I considered getting one for my husband for his birthday but decided against it since they are so expensive. Maybe if we didn't just upgrade our cell phones and weren't planning on some major house projects . . .

I LOVE James Patterson. I finished Guilty Wives this summer by the pool. All of his books have such a "twist" and are not what you expect. I wasn't expecting what happened in Guilty Wives. Come home is on my "TBR" list. :)
