I’ve been told to read James Patterson countless times, so I finally buckled down and chose this series, starting with 1st to Die. I gotta say, it’s worth the hype. The books are punchy, fast paced, and I never once felt like I could stop turning the pages. This series in particular is great because it features four smart, well written female characters who band together to solve murders, that they lovingly call “The Women’s Murder Club”. With plenty of humor, unexpected twists, and perfect pacing, I will definitely be continuing this series, and I recommend other people do, too! – Gina Russo
