My rating: 3 of 5 stars
As the sixth book in this The Women’s Murder Club series, I’m beginning to see a bit of a pattern, but the plots are different enough to keep the book moving and not boring. I could have read this book in a day should I have wanted to. It kept my attention.
I don’t like that every other book or so one of the women gets shot/injured to the point where one has died and the others were in the hospital. I get that injuring your main characters makes for more dramatic plot points, but as this is a very long running series for Patterson, let’s cool it just a bit please?
On the other hand, I did enjoy the trials presented, Yuki’s character development, and Claire’s character development. What I didn’t like? Lindsay is suffering from hot woman syndrome “everybody wants me”. Yuck. Let’s cool that a bit too (and maybe it will happen in the next book!). The story left a bit of a cliff hanger, which isn’t an integral part of the book plot, but could affect the series as a whole. Interesting.
