May 2, 2016 Leave a comment
The great thing about 15th Affair is that the authors prove they have no qualms about turning the lives of their veteran cast upside down. They’ve done this before, of course, but this time it gets personal. After all, what can be more agonizing and terrifying than realizing you’ve been sharing your life with someone you don’t really know at all? That’s the concept that makes this book work, and which makes readers feel a real connection to Boxer and her tiny family.
So if you’re looking for a novel that reads like like a big screen summer blockbuster, that is as full of heart as it is close-your-eyes-and-hold-on-tight moments of breathtaking, pulse pounding thrills, 15th Affair is the book for you. It is just in time for a long Memorial Day weekend too, almost as if James Patterson himself has fired up the grill and popped the top on a cold brew and said, “let’s get this party started!”
