This is a challenging book to review because so much has been written about it, and its author, already. It went on my “to be read” list almost immediately upon publication but was always passed over for various reasons. So when I saw the pop sugar challenge item of reading a book published posthumously, I knew the time had come to read the book that everyone seemed to love. And I was very, very happy I did because this was a gripping, emotional, and almost unbelievable story that needed to be told.
This was my first time reading a James Patterson book and I chose the first in the Women’s Murder Club series because I had heard good things about it and Patterson actually wrote this book himself. (He is notorious for only writing a fraction of his books and writing outlines he gives to his co-authors to write the rest: https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/james-patterson-doesnt-write-his-books-and-his-newest-readers-dont-read/2016/06/06/88e7d3c0-28c2-11e6-ae4a-3cdd5fe74204_story.html?utm_term=.65688512e329)
