One of my favorite James Patterson series is the Women‘s Murder Club! I enjoy all the characters and their stories. This novel was more of a flashback to years ago with a very chilling case that was utterly heartbreaking. Now I‘m all caught up on this series and I‘m ready for the next one!

ncayea I have it on my wish list at paperbackswap.com I can't wait! Good to know it's good! 1mo
NikkiKey94 @ncayea Women‘s Murder Club and Alex Cross are two of my favorite Patterson series! I read almost every adult book he writes and I‘ve only found one that I couldn‘t finish and that was The President is Missing. Just about everything else is so good! 1mo

Boxer is trying to find 3 missing teachers, while Joe is tracking a suspected war criminal. They both have their hands full and are praying for a happy ending.

bookaholic1 I really need to get into this series, heard it was good 2mo
Booknerd2 @bookaholic1 The early ones are much better but I can‘t quit a series. 😬 They are still enjoyable and pretty quick reads. 2mo

It was really good I just wish that James Patterson would have added Julie in the book as well. It was weird not having her in the story.

Mehso-so

⭐⭐⭐
This one was a bit of a departure for me. Of all of Patterson's series (serieses?), this one has been my favorite - I credit Maxine Paetro with that. But this one just didn't do it for me. There was so little interaction with the other 3 members of the WMC (they each had like 4 lines), and even Lindsay was barely in this one. It was more a Joe story than anything else. It wasn't terrible. But the spark was missing.

suzie.reads Total agree with this he has sort of forgotten the importance of the 4 of then together. Hoping 19th Christmas will be better 3mo
TrishB I thought 17 was weak and it‘s put me off getting this one. 3mo
Traci1 @suzie.reads the best thing about this one was discovering that 19 will be out in October. Hopefully the girls will be back together again. 3mo
Traci1 @TrishB I actually enjoyed 17. Probably not as much as some of the earlier ones, but after so many you kind of expect a weaker one here and there. This one was almost like reading a totally different series. The reason I like the series is the characters and the way they interact. That was completely missing with this one. I'm glad I borrowed it from the library. 3mo

This is the 18th book in the series, and I STILL can't decide how to pronounce this guy's name.

Is it jAk-uh-bee (with emphasis on a long A sound)? juh-kO-bee (with emphasis on a long O sound in the middle)? Or, as my daughter thinks jack-o-bee (with a smaller stress on the Jack)? Or something else? I know it's silly but I seem to pronounce it in my head differently every time he's mentioned, and it's driving me crazy.

TheLibrarian I'd pronounce it juh-kO-bee but that's just me. 3mo
Areader2 I am with your daughter jack-o-bee 3mo
tournevis @Areader2 @thelibrarian In GB, that's how it's pronounced. Common last name there. Derek Jacobi, the actor, famous for playing The Master on Doctor Who being one example. 3mo

GingerAntics That makes me think of Derek Jacobi, which is generally evenly stressed like your daughter is suggesting. 3mo
Aimeesue I went to school with kids with that last name and they pronounced in ja-KO-bee. But New Englanders are contrary and weird, so… 😁 3mo
OrangeMooseReads Ja-ko-bee is how I would pronounce it. 3mo
Traci1 @tournevis @GingerAntics That's really helpful. Thanks. 😊 3mo
Traci1 @Aimeesue lol 😆 3mo
Kappadeemom I‘m Southern, so he is Jay-co-bee with the emphasis on Jay. Matter of fact, I call him Jay in my head since we are friendly 😂😂 2mo
Traci1 @Kappadeemom lol. Maybe I should start calling him Jay if he doesn't mind. It would certainly eliminate my constantly changing it in my head from one thing to another. 2mo

Mehso-so

I‘m giving this a so-so because this is no longer a Women‘s Murder club series. It‘s the Lindsey and Joe show. I don‘t understand why not have Yuki meet Anna since half way she brings the story to Lindsey full of passion to do something. Why give it to Joe??? It‘s a ok story that just lacks the presence of the four women that got me hooked on the series 😞 maybe book 19 will be different but I‘m close to abandoning this series💔

I mean I will keep reading them as long as they keep getting published but I need more of Women‘s Murder Club! The storyline with Joe, Lindsay, and Conklin was great-very engaging and a few triggers. However, Yuki, Cindy, and Claire were so overlooked. We are a bit of them but I felt like that group dynamic between them was forgotten and I missed it.

TrishB I really didn‘t like 17 for pretty much the same reasons, not really focusing on all of them. I‘ve put off buying this because of it, maybe I‘ll leave for a kindle deal. 3mo
JoScho @TrishB I could be wrong but I feel like there was@more of them in 17 than 18. 3mo
TrishB Definitely going to wait for an offer 👍🏻 3mo

I am spending this weekend on the middle peninsula of Virginia called the Northern Neck Rivah Country. I am staying at a house which backs to the Chesapeake Bay. This is the view but it is it raining. So I am enjoying my book.

ChasingOm My grandparents lived in the Northern Neck! Which town are you in? 3mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @ChasingOm Montross. My better half used to live in Lancaster and his brother lives in Montross. We are visiting him. Where do your grandparents live? 3mo
ChasingOm They lived out on Cole‘s Point, near Hague. We would drive through Montross to get there. 😄 3mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @ChasingOm I know there. His brother lives in Cabin Point outside of Montross. I love that area. 3mo

Enjoying this more than the last book in the series. Already 50% through.

TrishB Interesting. I thought the last one was a massive disappointment and I wouldn‘t buy the next.... 3mo
JeansBookshelf @TrishB The last one was a disappointment. I decided to give it one more chance with this book. This one isn't a courtroom book like the last one. I hated that. I borrowed it from the library so I didn't have to buy it 😂 3mo

I think this is Patterson‘s latest book. #AnotherOneBitesTheDust #Anglophile

I don‘t read him any longer, but you have to admit, he‘s prolific if nothing. I wonder if when he wraps his latest, does he sing Another One Bites the Dust?

Kappadeemom He bathes in his money 😂 4mo
Drocchio03 @Kappadeemom Ha! You win Litsy today. Hysterical. 4mo

ravenlee I‘ve bern wondering for years how much “collaborating” he actually does. I‘m guessing his contributions go something like “here‘s the title, and these are the characters. And I thought of a good line, work it in somewhere. Let me know when it‘s done.” 4mo
Mdargusch Very funny thought! 🤩 4mo
Reviewsbylola My dad really likes his books. I‘ve read one. 😄 4mo
Samplergal @Reviewsbylola I read a bunch of his early ones. I haven‘t for years. Those were the days when I had young children, so I guess that all I could get through. A chapter a day. 😂😂😂😂 does he still have like 2000 chapters? 4mo

Another great book from James Patterson 😊
I do love this series and the story was really good. Just wish Claire, Cindy and Yuki were in it abit more. The story focused on Lindsay and Joe working two cases that ended up collliding.
