The White House is the home of the president of the United States, the most guarded, monitored, closely watched person in the world. So how could a US president vanish without a trace? And why would he choose to do so? An unprecedented collaboration between President Bill Clinton and the world's best-selling novelist, James Patterson, The President Is Missing is a breathtaking story from the pinnacle of power.

With her extended maternity leave at its end, Melanie Trenholm is less than thrilled to leave her new husband and beautiful twins to return to work, especially when she's awoken by a phone call with no voice on the other end - and the uneasy feeling that the ghostly apparitions that have stayed silent for over a year are about to invade her life once more. But her return to the realty office goes better than she could have hoped, with a new client eager to sell the home she recently inherited on South Battery.

I just discovered Karen White and have really enjoyed her books. The tradd street series was very entertaining because Charleston is my favorite City. This book was quite simply very irritating. the character Melanie is so unlikeable and silly and not at all like the semi self--confident lady that the earlier books had. I feel like the reader knew what was going on far too early in the story and there was no suspense, just head-shaking numbness that the main character wasn't catching on. the fact that she's already holding back from Jack at the end of the novel lets me know that I will never read another one of these books.

I am a huge fan of the Thunder Point series. These characters were not likeable, though. The story was very predictable and not at all like the series. I'm sad because this is time I will never get back.

Always on the go and racing toward the next challenge, Meredith Montgomery is the kind of woman who has it all - or at least that's what she wants everyone to believe. But when a serendipitous twist of fate at a quaint B&B brings her face-to-face with Elliott Fraser, a wealthy and respected Scotsman, Meredith might just slow down for the first time in her life.

Nothing like the first book. The characters in the Ruby Brooch are vital and beautiful. They were still flawed but a joy to read about. These characters are older, but so am I, so that's not a problem. the man is hobbling around on crutches, the woman is struggling with a cancer diagnosis, and neither comes across very likeable. These are not people you expect to find in an escapist romance novel

I have now read two books in this series and do not see myself reading any others. The books were practically identical. The characters are not really likeable, especially the mother. Her reasons for leaving her family are not substantial enough to be warranted. She is completely unlikable. the story line goes on and on and around in circles which is expected in romance novels, but this one and this series seem to have no direction whatsoever. The choices these people make, like having party over for Thanksgiving dinner, are just dumb.

Action-packed from the start, Hidden Order demonstrates yet again why Brad Thor is the "master of thrillers". A string of high-profile kidnappings has Washington, D.C., in a frenzy. When the victims begin turning up dead, frenzy turns to panic. And when the ransom demand is finally made public, panic will turn to terror. In Brad Thor's riveting new thriller, the stakes have never been higher, nor the lines between good and evil so hard to discern.

I love the Harvath Series but all of the information about the Federal Reserve made the book rather cumbersome at points.
I still enjoyed it, and I look forward to the next one.
