Murder House
Murder House | James Patterson
It has an ocean-front view, a private beach--and a deadly secret that won't stay buried. No. 7 Ocean Drive is a gorgeous, multi-million-dollar beachfront estate in the Hamptons, where money and privilege know no bounds. But its beautiful gothic exterior hides a horrific past: it was the scene of a series of depraved killings that have never been solved. Neglected, empty, and rumored to be cursed, it's known as the Murder House, and locals keep their distance. Detective Jenna Murphy used to consider herself a local, but she hasn't been back since she was a girl. Trying to escape her troubled past and rehabilitate a career on the rocks, the former New York City cop hardly expects her lush and wealthy surroundings to be a hotbed of grisly depravity. But when a Hollywood power broker and his mistress are found dead in the abandoned Murder House, the gruesome crime scene rivals anything Jenna experienced in Manhattan. And what at first seems like an open and shut case turns out to have as many shocking secrets as the Murder House itself, as Jenna quickly realizes that the mansion's history is much darker than even the town's most salacious gossips could have imagined. As more bodies surface, and the secret that Jenna has tried desperately to escape closes in on her, she must risk her own life to expose the truth--before the Murder House claims another victim. Full of the twists and turns that have made James Patterson the world's #1 bestselling writer, THE MURDER HOUSE is a chilling, page-turning story of murder, money, and revenge.

Of all four James Patterson books I have read so far, this is the one I would recommend for people to read!!

Jenna is a detective heading back to her hometown to investigate “The Murder House,” and uncover who is behind these brutal killings that are continuing to happen.

I loved her character, the twist, and the chapters told from the perspective of the killer rather than Jenna! Overall so well done and kept me entertained!

Gardening, a nice walk, and a new audiobook... great start to my week!

My #vegetablegarden is really taking off!! I can‘t wait to actually be getting the vegetables! But I have certainly come a long way from just the seeds in red solo cups!

Note about James Patterson: this is my fourth Patterson book - first was 4 stars, next was 2 stars and the last was 3 stars!! I wonder how this one will be...

TheAromaofBooks Your garden is looking fantastic!!! 3y

Let me start by saying I liked this book, it had a good plot, it kept me interested, HOWEVER it was sooooo long!!! I am not sure it needed to be as long as it was, I feel like some of the plot could have been removed and it would have been okay. It also was not my favorite James Patterson book, but that is okay he has a lot odds are there will be a few that aren‘t my favorites.

We are having some stormy weather here on the island. Which means, plenty of time for fires and reading ♡
I enjoyed this book. It had a couple of twists that kept me intrigued. I felt like it dragged on just a little, though it did have an interesting ending. I would suggest this book for someone looking for a medium suspense/thriller novel. It's not an edge-of-the-seat kind of book, though it is entertaining! Happy Reading!

I don‘t normally read a ton of Patterson, but this one had great reviews and I figured I would try it and it did not disappoint at all. It was scary and suspenseful and full of twists. I didn‘t want to stop at any point. I really was hooked on this story and definitely feel that this was Patterson at his best.

This starts out a bit slow but really picks up when the flashbacks begin. I knew who the authors wanted me to think was the killer and who I wanted the killer to be, but I didn‘t know the truth until the very end. Basically this is a twisty, scary, serial killer book.
I listened to the audio. I thought having a male & female narrator switch off was going to bother me, but it didn‘t. Guess I was caught up in the story.

Listened to this on audible. It's told in two voices, the female narrator was very good but I couldn't take to the guy, however she is the main part so he wasn't in it enough to ruin it. Guessed the twist, but it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the book. Actually the first James Patterson I've 'read' so might dig out a few more of his now. Only real criticism was that it tied up a bit neatly at the end, feels a bit contrived to me when that happens

This is my first #jamespatterson novel and I am pretty sure it won't be the last, because I already bought the next one. In my defense it was on sale. I read a few #mystery novels before but they never quite grabbed me like this one. If you are fan of #Patterson which books are your favorite and which ones would you recommend a Patterson newbie.

TrishB I still read the Women's Murder Club ones, I would recommend those. 5y
TheLazyReader @TrishB thank you, on my tbr 🙂 5y

It's been a rainy few days here in NS not to mention chilly. Isn't it suppose to be warm by now?! Oh well, gives me an excuse to stay home today and read a new book and enjoy my Dunkin Doughnuts coffee (which you can't buy in 🇨🇦) and my new bookmark from create, explore, read on Instagram and how cute is my new mug from Disney?! Love me some Chip!

This was fun. It did exactly what a mystery thriller should do...it kept me intrigued. I figured out who did it or at least I thought I had. I responded to the twists by flipping my Sherlockian opinion back and forth and all over the place. I don't know if I'll hang out with James Patterson again. This was definitely better than a Lifetime movie, but there are other mystery novels with far more depth. Recommended for magnetic pull of the suspense!

daf_fields This is the of his books that I have read. 6y
daf_fields Step on a Crack was really good. I enjoyed Zoo (much more than the show!). Jack and Jill easy pretty good, too. 6y
Nute @daf_fields Maybe its not fair to give up on an author after just one book. He does have a wide readership and is obviously well-liked. A bookseller once told me that James Patterson has his own new release date. His new books are never released on Tuesdays like most authors because of his remarkable popularity. So James and I will meet again....perhaps based on your recommendations! 6y

This is an author that I had no interest in, but my co-worker told me I have to read this book...so, this is my first James Patterson novel. Maybe there's love for this author, and I never would have known without this recommendation.

That moment when you open a birthday present and you can tell it's books yipppppeeeee, but then they end up being James Patterson books. 😩😩😩😩Are either of these worth cracking open? I have only read one JP book but one was enough to make me swear I'd never read another!!! Was I wrong??

Sue Happy birthday!! (He's not my cup of tea either) 6y
Notafraidofwords I never read him, but I worked in the public library for a long time and people loved his work. 6y
Jessicav Same as above. I am a public librarian and more often you'll hear staff refer to his books as "the damn Pattersons" because there are so many and we get them in huge quantities. But you can't argue with circulation? He's doing something right... 6y

erzascarletbookgasm The first two books of his Alex Cross series are ok. Not my bag, either, so didn't pursue further. Some said his earlier books are better than his latter co-authored ones. Happy birthday. 6y
NatalieR I've read a couple of his books and enjoyed them. (None of the series tho.) I'd like to read Murder House. Sounds interesting to me. 6y
GuiltyFeat What kind of friend knows you well enough to buy books but not well enough to buy you James Patterson books? Weird. It's pretty clear the relationship's going nowhere. Dump 'em and move on until you find someone who gets you a Book of the Month subscription. 6y
Carol Agreeing with @GuiltyFeat - so odd to get books that aren't your style from someone who knows you well enough to get you books. That said his books are at least fast (2-3 page chapters, large margins, etc.) so maybe save them for the next readathon? (July) 6y
lilredhen Happy birthday! He's not my fave, but I know lots of people who are gaga about his books. 6y
BestOfFates I sympathize! I've never tried Patterson but I've definitely gotten book gifts and been like...I like so many kinds of books, how did you end up with this?! 6y
Bookgirl HahaHahahaha @GuiltyFeat and @Carol they are from my mother in law. Need I say more? I'm sure JP is all she reads. Not encouraging! 6y
Bookgirl @Jessicav True but lots of people read Nicolas Sparks too. Doesn't make his books good!!! But I'll give one of these a whirl...hard to resist a brand new book! 6y
Bookgirl @Sue @erzascarletbookgasm @lilredhen Thanks!!! @BestOfFates not surprised given the source, people tend to give what they like!! Just more that feeling of...I hope you didn't pay full price for these!! 😂😂 6y
GuiltyFeat Ooh. That's a tricky one. It took me a while but eventually I was able to train my own M-i-L. Start by hinting towards Amazon vouchers and work your way up. Also, lend her something you like so she learns your tastes. Once trained my M-i-L bought me a signed Amy Tan! #daretodream #nevergiveup 6y
Carol My MIL always wants an Amazon wish list to buy from, but I totally won the in-law olympics. You could make up a book club reading list for the year and keep it I an obvious location/have your spouse just give it to her 😁 6y
Bookgirl @Carol @GuiltyFeat nice work, both of you!! I'm afraid it's a lost cause over here...my teenager and preteen still get gifts appropriate for preschool age children. I just keep suggesting not to get me anything as that seems best for all lol! 6y
