  1. Brandy Alyx Reese- Giles

    I was so excitedI own and have read every single Women’s Murder Club books. I was disappointed in the last one because the writing was and characters were flat and formulaic. One more, this just might be my last one, if I could return it I would, that is how disappointed I am.Patterson has been churning out books and in this series at least, it shows. There is a lack of character development, flat dialogue, the storyline bounces around haphazardly.He needs to slow down and pay attention to the people he has created in these stories instead of treating them like two dimensional paper dolls he takes out to play with.I WANT to like this book. But its just not good enough. The vocabulary choices he makes aren’t always character appropriate or situational appropriate. Where did the police procedure researcher go?I’m not even going to address the miraculous completion of Cindy’s book, that was just ridiculous. I mean why spend pages and pages of whining about having to write Burke’s book and writers block, to practically overnight finishing it a best seller.I feel like I got cheated.

    Part One: Same Old — Part Two: GreatI love these Women’s Murder Club Mysteries. The characters are dear to me. That said, the 1st part of the novel recycled too many familiar plot themes — dirty cops, cartels, and nothing seemed fresh. And that portion continued too long. When Part Two began, wow! What a difference! I couldn’t stop reading until the end. Unfortunately, the wow factor of the story was way shorter than the boring part. That’s why the 3 stars. Hope the “23” entry will be more consistent.

    Another goody by James Patterson!I love all the Women’s Murder club books. It’s hard to wait for the next one.Reading stories where you feel you know all the characters makes the stories more interesting. Plot was good and nothing was given away! I would recommend this series to anyone!

    Another WinnerI love the Women’s Murder Club. This book is exceptionally good. I’m amazed at how a writer comes up with a storyline including plot, defining characters etc. That’s why writers write and I read. This is a book you Patterson and Paetro fans need to get…you will love it

    Loved this book!I can’t believe the complexity of the story and how it worked out. Fabulous!! I saw a different side of Boxer and Joe, and how difficult marriage is for 2 law enforcement officers with a family. Highly recommend this book!

    One of the best ……in this series. Kept you involved and guessing. All the characters involved. More than just the girls getting together to swap stories. Surprise ending!!! Good read!

  7. Nan

    DisappointedI usually look forward to The Women Murder Claub books and enjoy reading them. This one was confusing in spots and somewhat disjointed. I have read all of them and 22 Seconds is at the bottom of the list. Diappointed.

    22 Seconds by James PattersonI like it that when a business tells you what day the item is going to be received and it is received on time as promised . Thank you for always being on time and in new/perfect condition. I am such a fan of James Patterson. I have read 1-21 of the Women’s Murder Club series. I just received #22 and i can’t wait for number 23 to be published!! Thanks, Karen

    22 SECONDS HARDBACKIt is very simple really. If you have read and enjoyed any/all “Women’s Murder Club” books you don’t need me to say this is another very good read. A page turner written to his usual formula (which seems to annoy some?) Short chapters that keep you in suspense and needing to read on. The usual characters. Good plot developments and twists. I read it in 3 days. 22 books! If the formula works, please don’t change it. Recomnded.

    22 Seconds – Woman’s Murder Club, James PattersonWell worth the wait for the twenty second book in the series although this story was more about just Lyndsey Boxer than all four members of the murder club. It was also about the Boxer family bringing Joe in working on the case and Julie Bug a four year old tantrum throwing child. Still worth reading.
