Secret Star by Nora Roberts

In the last book, Secret Star, of the series of The Stars of Mithra bring Grace, M.J and Bailey all together.

Grace is a powerful women with little need for money. She is loaded but it is something she doesn’t want to have. Trouble starts coming Grace’s way when Bailey sends her a blue diamond and her cousin ends up dead. With the help of her friends and a Lieutenant Seth Buchanan the mystery client will be solved and the diamonds will be reunited.

The last book started out with a very intense scene. A body was found and I was confused. It couldn’t have been Grace but all the cops were sure. Roberts brings in the reader with this intense beginner and keeps the reader involved with the witty characters of Grace, Bailey and M.J.

The Stars of Mithra is a thrilling tale and worth reading.

5th Horseman by James Patterson

I was instantly intrigued by the title of James Patterson’s book, 5th Horseman.  I wanted to know what this other horseman would be like since the four brings the apocalypse.

The Plot:

“A young mother is recuperating in a San Francisco hospital when she is suddenly gasping for breath.  Help doesn’t come in time.  The hospital doctors, some of the best in the nation, are completely mystified by her death.  This is not the first such case at the hospital.  Just as patients are about to be released with a clean bill of health, their conditions take a devastating turn for the worse.

Accompanied by the newest member of the Women’s Murder Club, Yuki Castellano, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer probes deeper into the deaths.  Is a manic playing God?  When someone close to her begins to exhibit the same frightening symptoms, Lindsay fears no one is safe.  But the hospital is determined to shield its reputation at all costs.  And while the hospital wages a court battle that grips the entire nation, Lindsay and the Women’s Murder Club must hunt a merciless killer.”

Again another heart-stopping suspense, mystery book by James Patterson.  I was drawn into the plot.  This book seemed a little different from the others that have been written.  I liked the idea of a killer in the hospital.  It was a new twist that was not done before for the murder club.

The end again was something I wasn’t sure on. One of the guys that was the actual doctor was scum and you hoped that he was the bad guy and hoped that he would go to jail for a very long time.  But everything was not as it appeared to be in true mystery/suspense novels.  James Patterson leaves you on the seat as Lindsay Boxer and the Women’s Murder Club searches for the murderer.

2nd Chance by James Patterson

From reading the first book, 1st to Die, I was intrigued by the series.  Women’s Murder Club is definitely a different series from many that I have read.  The series is a wonder to read.  The four women are remarkable.  2nd Chance is another book that shows James Patterson’s incredible work of thrills and suspense.

The Plot of 2nd Chance:

“The Women’s Murder Club is back!  A brilliantly diabolical killer is murdering people from every walk of life.  The deaths seem unrelated but police homicide inspector Lindsay Boxer senses a connection and, together with medical examiner Claire, assistant D.A. Jill, and Chronicle reporter Cindy, finds a link that sends a chill through the entire nation.  The killer’s motives are unspeakable.”

Reading the first book let you get to know the characters, introduced them and know you are getting to know them more personally as the level of action and thrills are knocking on their door.  I was awed by the amount of events that spun out of control for the women.  I loved it and hated it.  Felt horrible for some and cheered them on.

When one of the members had a tragedy happen to her I felt horrible for the character.  You felt the need to protect the character from any further harm.

I hated the tragedy and betrayal of trust with Lindsay’s estranged father but it gets better and has promise of a relationship.

The villain in this one was unbelievable.  I couldn’t stop reading until I figured out who the killer of these people were.  There were so many clues that took you one way and then another.

This book, 2nd Chance, is a heart-stopping and heartwarming as the Murder Club is back in action.  James Patterson intrigues the reader with mystery, suspense, thrills and non stop crime fighting action.
