James Patterson is an AMAZING person - have you ever read up on him? Aside from being a world renown author, he is just a fascinating, sincere, business oriented, this-is-my-career-and-I'm-going-to-do-it-right guy. Cranks out books by the dozens, covers a variety of genres, including children's, and has the heart of a teacher. Just truly remarkable! So, I hate to criticize (because who am I to talk??? What the heck have I ever done???), but I am freakin' pulling my hair out here. I did not enjoy "Sundays at Tiffany's" or "Sam's Letters to Jennifer," altho I did, did, did like "Kiss the Girls" (that is the book that started this loggin' bloggin'), so I'm thinking I don't like him as a romance writer and decide to return to the blood & guts suspense stuff. But I gotta say, I'm, like, miffed right now! WTHeck???
One of my reading goals is to read the Women's Murder Club series in sequence - gosh, I hope I don't get this frustrated when I start that!
And just to clarify, this is just a vent. I'm not giving up on "The Beach House" yet. This guy Patterson is no slouch and isn't acclaimed for nothing, so there has GOT to be something here... something that I'll get to (soon, please) and will cheer LOUDLY over in the end. Stay tuned...
