The pages turn themselves
To be honest, they do especially when it comes to a fast-paced thriller and the author being James Patterson
🤷Why I chose this read
I’ve read only 2 of James Patterson’s books hide and seek and now you see her, and I plan to read more
First of all, I’m all about thriller/investigative kind of books and series too, so I had no problem diving to this, Patterson has me covered with books……. that I have approved
✅My expectations and what I got
- From the word go I expected a fast-paced read, it was somehow slow/frustrating for me reading about Jeanine’s misfortunes before the read kept me on toes considering I was going through a backstabbing kind of situation so it was not thrilling for me at first.
- To keep a secret you need a bunch of lies to keep the lid tightly closed
🤔What the book is about.
lies, murder, mystery
Due to circumstances Jeanine/Nina is married to a cop Peter Fournier, thanks to him Jeanine runs from him and from her old life with him to New York and changes her name to Nina Bloom where she’s a successful lawyer, she keeps the truth from everyone including her daughter
🙌 What impressed me?
I was struck by how Nina was so good at keeping the secret for so long.
After an innocent man is framed for murder Nina knows she has to save the man from execution even if it meant going back to the place she ran from.
How Nina moved on from a traumatic past to starting a new life and being one hell of a lawyer, is quite encouraging.
Why I recommend this book…👍
For me, it might have been slow in the beginning but how the twists and turns get you is just indescribable so get! get! the book, hands down to James Patterson and Micheal Ledwidge the co-writer
