The music, I loved it!
The end with Carolee..
I've said this before, she can switch characters with ease so that you don't even realize you're listening to an audio book.

Excellent book as usual, although I miss Jill.

5 out of 5 Hearts
This review is for 4th of July, book #4 in James Patterson's Women's Murder Club. They should be read or heard in order, as there are some elements mentioned that derive from previous installments.
Some of the judicial steps may be presented differently but, this is fiction, so in my honest opinion, that's acceptable.
San Francisco, California, also known as San Francisco Bay Area, or just 'The Bay Area', is my childhood stomping grounds. How I miss them too. I recognize the places and towns mentioned, that is a definite plus in my book.
Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer finds herself in an unbelievable dilemma and having to defend herself and her actions, makes the plot sweeter.
I enjoy the short and fast paced chapters, the background accompaniment of sounds, and the action from start to finish. This is a journey through some tragically twisted events and horrifying turns as the race is on. Lindsay strikes me as a strong female who refuses to stop until she solves whatever she is chasing. Gotta Love that!
The narrator did a wonderful job of presenting the characters in clearly distinguished voices. Awesomeness!

Another great book about the girls and what they are involved in. After a near death experience that almost destroyed Lindsey's stoic professional exterior, by injuring her unknown soft interior. Who knew she had such a soft spot for kids?
Off Lindsey goes for some R & R at her sisters cabin. However, she immediately uncovers something she should have left alone, she was on vacation after all.
But as we know, Lindsey jumped right in the middle of a case that stumped the local police force. You would think they would be happy to have her experience, but the chief knew there was a pending murder case against Lindsey.
As they learned how to tolerate each other's stubbornness, as more people are murdered, they both realized one of their neighbors of their sleepy town was murdering its residents. But who snd why?
Lindsey is on it with her best buddy her dog Boo.
I have really enjoyed the Womens Murder Club series and this book didn't disappoint. Good story line, good characters, and a good mystery to solve.
I couldn't get into this book because the narrator has a lisp that was overwhelmingly distracting to me to the point I couldn't follow the storyline. I realize it's not her fault she has a lisp, but very poor choice for narrating s book.
I'm luke warm on this series, but I want to like it... I like the main character, but sometimes I wonder if Mr. Patterson has ever met a group of professional women. One scene in this book, they're described as squealing and jumping around because they hadn't seen each other in like a week....10 years of not seeing my best friend, there would be no squealing or jumping. Several little scenes like that throughout the series make me question what he was thinking, and makes the women look silly, unprofessional, emotional and/or immature.
There's a lot of trial drama in this one with bookends for the crime story. I'm not really in to court drama, but if you are, it's a nice twist to the series I guess. I found it unnecessary, and really more uncomfortable than intriguing.
The random background music in the recording is SUPER distracting. Especially during the romantic scenes...makes me feel like I'm listening to a terrible b-movie, or worse, 80s porn.
The narrator is definitely better than the female narrator for books one and two.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Not sure why it's the "Club" when it doesn't play much of a part. Good listen, if you've read the previous you know what to expect.
Kind of like a TV movie. Kept me going but never measures up to great thrillers like Gone Girl or The Goldfinch.
Another great story with good twists and turns. The reader does an excellent job!
The reason I gave the story a 4 and not a 5 is that I didn't care for the way everything unfolds so quickly at the end. Author does this often. It was a great surprise ending but that was the only place where it was not plausible in how he handled it.
