    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

    Story

    The original wasn't great literature, but it was fun and lively. If you're expecting more of the same, stop before you buy. This was phoned in. A ridiculous story, poorly written, vapid characters. Save your money.

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear… She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work. My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

    I like this series but this was a disappointment. Very violent and ghoulish series of crimes, and the plot was repetitive. Narrator's presentation of one of the main characters was affected and annoying.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    Story

    I was about 1/3 through and finding this book pretty uninteresting. So I checked the reviews and they were generally positive. So I stuck it through to the end. What a mistake! The underlying premise of the story and rationale for the kidnapping is strong. But the prison scenes are dull, repetitive and tedious and they are a majority of the story. Very slow pace. Then the author needs to make the big reveal and wrap it all up and that happens quickly and with some flat out unbelievable plot turns. The characters are flat and I found myself not caring about any of them. The surprising twist wasn't a surprise at all--who else could have hatched the kidnap plan? I have enjoyed Gardner's other books but will think twice before ordering again.

    A new addition to the New York Times best-selling Stone Barrington series. After an eventful trip to Bel-Air and a reunion with his sophisticated (and very wealthy) former love, Arrington Calder, Stone Barrington is back in New York, and he's looking to stay closer to home and cash in on his partnership at Woodman & Weld. But Arrington has other plans for Stone... including introducing him to the child he fathered many years ago.

    Any additional comments?

    I know Patterson is not great literature, but the books generally are enjoyable, perfect for the gym and have at least one little plot twist. This story line was ridiculous, predictable and incredibly--gratuitously--violent. I stuck with it to the end hoping for a surprise--in vain. Don't waste your time or a credit.
