Bloody Valentine – James Patterson ★★★★

Blurb; This year Valentine’s Day isn’t for romance. It’s for murder.

Mega rich restaurant owner Jack Barnes and his second wife Zee are very much in love. However, their plans for Valentine’s Day are about to be torn apart by the most violent murder.Who is the strange figure plotting this sick crime? Who hates Jack that much? There are plenty of suspects living in Jack’s fancy block of flats. Is it them, or could it be the work of an outsider with a twisted mind? One thing’s for sure, the police have got their work cut out solving this bloody mess.

My Review; There is nothing better than a quick read and your favourite author. This was perfect! A valentines day you won’t want to remember. But one you can’t forget. It is a book that will have you hooked, gripped and sat on the edge of your seat trying to figure it all out. There was just too many coincidences emerging for my liking.

For me parts could be described as more horror. Bloody. Dark. Deathly. Descriptive. Contains a huge unexpected twist I would never have seen coming. A perfect short story. Brilliantly written. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.

The First Lady – James Patterson & Brendan DuBois ★★★★

Blurb; “Sir, the First Lady … has gone rogue.”

President Tucker is caught up in a media firestorm. The scandal of his affair has sent shockwaves through his re-election campaign, and threatens to derail everything he has worked for. To win the vote, he needs the First Lady to stand by his side.

But Grace Tucker has a mind of her own.

After years of compromise, unfulfilled promises, deception and betrayal, Grace refuses to give in to her husband’s demands. Escaping the city and her Secret Service agents, she is officially off the radar.

But did the First Lady run away? Or is she in far greater danger than anyone could have imagined?

My Review; Ok. It’s official. I love James Pattersons books. This was brilliant! I don’t know what I can say without giving anything away, so this will probably be a short but sweet review.

This was different from his usual stories as this has a little politics in. We get a look into the white house, the president and the first ladies lives. But not everything is as perfect as it seems through the tv. An affair. A missing first lady. A liar. A mistress. A sniper. A hunter. One twisted man full of power. That’s all I’m going to say. A brilliant read. An easy read. Short chapters. Brilliantly written. Gripping. Thrilling.

A must read. Loved it. Enjoyed it. Highly recommend. Four stars from me.

Out Of Sight – James Patterson & Brendan DuBois ★★★★

Blurb; After a harrowing tour in Afghanistan, intelligence officer Amy Cornwall is eager to return home to her husband and their young daughter. But as soon as she steps into the house, she knows that something is terribly wrong.

HER FAMILY IS MISSING

The kidnappers leave a message: if she wants to see her husband and daughter alive again, Amy must complete a near impossible task…and she has 48 hours to do it.

SHE’LL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO BRING THEM HOME

Alone, afraid and officially AWOL, Amy will sacrifice everything to find her family – her career, her reputation, maybe even her own life…

My Review; I am really getting into James Patterson recently. I love his writing style. Easy reading. Short chapters. His book are amazing. I literally devoured this one in a day. A brilliant, edge of your seat story. Thrilling. A Page turner I couldn’t put down.

Amy is one strong, brave, determined and clever woman. She knew exactly what to do to get her family back and she did it on her terms not the kidnappers. She amazed me. Noone was stopping her from getting her family back. The ending brings a huge twist and revenge well deserved. I have seen this is book one in a series so I can’t wait to see where this series takes us next. The bad guys dont always have to win. Hurray!

A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. Still thinking about this book now.
