Author: James Patterson

Format: paperback

It’s been awhile since I’ve read the beginning of the Women’s Murder Club series, but I’ve been wanting to for quite some time. So my goal this year was to re-read 1-8 before book 9 comes out.

1st to Die is about the bride and groom killer, who targets certain couples and expertly murders them in various ways. At the same time, Lindsay finds herself with a new partner, new feelings, and a serious health problem. With the help of her friends, the women’s murder club is born.

This is another of my favorite series, probably the first I ever read. The character of Lindsay Boxer is so dynamic and full of spunk and heart (when she needs it). She’s human and I love that everyone can relate to her. Now that the TV show has aired, my vision of Lindsay has changed and often times I forget she is a blond in the book, instead of a brunette.

I love her flaws and her strength through heartache. She has always been one of my favorite lead characters and sometimes I forget how much I enjoy these books.
