Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Richard North Patterson - the author of more than 20 novels, including Degree of Guilt and Silent Witness - returns with the dramatic conclusion to the Blaine trilogy: Eden in Winter, the final volume that completes the story begun in Fall from Grace.

Two months after the suspicious and much-publicized death of his father on the island of Martha's Vineyard, it is taking all of Adam Blaine's will to suture the deep wounds the tragedy has inflicted upon his family and himself.

As the court inquest into Benjamin Blaine's death casts suspicions on those closest to him, Adam struggles to protect them from those who still suspect that his father was murdered by one of his kin.

But the sternest test of all is Adam's proximity to Carla Pacelli - his late father's mistress and a woman to whom, despite her pivotal role in his family's plight, Adam finds himself increasingly drawn. The closer he gets to this beautiful, mysterious woman, the further Adam feels from his troubles, yet the closer he also comes to revealing the secrets he's striven to conceal and condemning the people he's fought so hard to protect.

An acknowledged master of the courtroom thriller, Patterson's Blaine trilogy, a bold and surprising departure from his past novels, is a complex family drama pulsing with the tumult of the time and "dripping with summer diversions, youthful passion and ideals, class tensions, and familial disruptions" (Library Journal).

    "Another Good Story from Richard North Patterson"

    With Patterson you know you will get some legal issues and a love interest. The legal drama is mostly outside the courtroom this time. With this book you also get a tabloid reporter stirred into the mix. Adam Blaine comes back from Afghanistan twice to save his dysfunctional family from complete disintegration. Adam is a modern hero who, when he is not rescuing his family, needs to be rescued by them. We get to know Carla the "home wrecker" who, like Adam, is a determined character with a troubled past. I know this is book three of a trilogy, but I won't be surprised if the Blain family appears in another book.

    Story
    "Family secrets buried?"
    Would you listen to Eden in Winter again? Why?

    Yes, would recommend listening to the first two books. Eden tied in the early books history to make Eden a must read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eden in Winter?

    Lots of twists in this novel. I would do an injustice if I pointed out my favorite parts for future prospective readers to see. Adam is the main character whio offers the answers to protect his family, Uncle Jack, and his FATHER. How Carla handled what she was dished throughout this novel...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Adams character as a whole kept the pages turning (listening).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If possible, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed all of Richard North Pattersons earlier novels as well. Author has an ability to bring out the best in each character with distinction however small the role may be.

    I am an avid recorded book listener. I work at at elementary school, have 2 high schoolers and have very little time to sit and read. This is a great book fix for the perpetual motion in our lives we live these days.

    "Repeat, repeat, repeat"

    I was disappointed with the contribution of new material presented in this book. Much of this book is verbatim - cut and paste from the first book. I expect much more from RNP. Having said that, this does bring an end to the trilogy. As always, I love Dennis Boutsikaris as a narrator.

    "Disappointing Ending"

    I loved the first two books in this trilogy (Fall from Grace and Loss of Innocence). I couldn't wait to read this book to see how Patterson resolved this family's convoluted situation. I'm pretty open-minded and anything but a prude, but the "ick" factor just left me cold. Realistically, I don't see how there could ever be a "happily ever after" as implied in the epilogue.
