Ok, there are some really cheesy moments in this book, but it’s a quick, easy read that is also entertaining. No, there are no themes or plot points to discuss, no great book club questions, but it never promises to be that. James Patterson is really the master at formulaic writing, and I mean that in the nicest possible way. The structure is so clear, the characterizations so crisp, that this is an incredibly easy book to read. With soap opera-esque twists, this is a good beach read with lots of interesting (sometimes laughable) entertainment.
