12th of Never by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro
It is that time of year again --
My person is back! Lindsay Boxer and the rest of the Women’s Murder Club is back for the 12th installment!
And as always, Mr. Patterson does not disappoint!
Lindsay has just become a mother, but she doesn’t get any time off. After having baby Julie, she is thrown right back into the hectic mess that is investigating homicides in San Francisco.
Claire’s job is on the line when a high-profile murder victim’s body disappears.
Cindy and Rich’s relationship hits a bump in the road.
And Yuki has the court case from hell!
One of the many things I loved about this novel was how many story lines were all intertwined with each other. Yet, in classic Patterson form, it doesn’t get confusing and all flows together.
Once a book series starts getting up in the double digits, you may expect the books to start getting worse, but it hasn’t happened yet here. This novel was just as exciting as 1-11 and it was hard to put down.
This is my favorite book series, and I was really excited when my pre-order copy came in the mail. The fact that the quality of the book still matches the earlier installments just reinforces why Patterson is my favorite author.
5/5 Stars. It lived up to all expectations, and of course…. Leaves you begging for the next book.
Read ahead for spoilers!
I still don’t really like Joe and Lindsay together. Never have. And I don’t really have a good reason to justify my feelings.
I KNEW Morales was sketchy from the beginning, but I was not expecting the twist in the car pile-up accident with Fish.
The only thing that was really lacking from this one was badass cop Lindsay. Instead we got a lot of soft emotional momma Lindsay. Which is alright, every character needs a complete arc, but I’m hoping from some more bad-ass-ery out of Lindsay in 13.
