In the 12th of Never, Patterson will you have you reeling from the Women's Murder Club cases and personal lives. Between serial killers, illnesses, trials full of surprises, and relationship drama you will not want to put this book down. ( )

James Patterson's stories compel a reader to continue to the next chapter, therefore, the book ends quickly. The Women's Murder Club series displays feminine friendship and the men circle around this elite society, but never enter. Lindsay Boxer dominates the story, as baby Julie makes her entrance on a stormy night with the assistance of the EMTs. The story balances life, love, and death as a high-profile corpse disappears from the morgue and a situation of a football player and his clingy girlfriend emerges. Patterson's four females embellish a career-driven woman who must sometimes sacrifice normality for a job. Patterson reminds me of Sidney Sheldon, but Sheldon presents women with a gentler personality. ( )

The big news at the beginning of this novel is that Lindsey is having her kid. That was also the plot that got me through this crazy jumble of plots and subplots in the novel. Little Julie has a very exciting start to her life, and while the twists in the Baby Julie storyline weren't surprising, it was a nicely plotted and written story.

None of the other storylines surprised me either. Richie and Cindy are having some problems with their engagement, Claire is having trouble at work, a body disappears and she gets blamed for it. And Yuki is trying a dirty lawyer who is accused of killing his wife. At first her plot is the one that is going the best, but of course, that turns on a dime too and gets interesting (second most interesting story in the novel).

There's also a new intern at Lindsey and Richie's precinct. Mackie, a young woman doing some sort of psych grad work or something.

I liked this particular entry in the Women's Murder Club series a bit more than usual, but still, there was just so much going on. It was like a three-ring circus. I felt like I missed a part of all the stories because I needed six eyes to read all of them at once.

It also seemed like the Women's Murder Club just isn't as much of a crime solving juggernaut anymore. That was one of the things I liked about the series, they managed to solve the crimes when the 'big strong, blah blah blah men' couldn't. Now, instead, it seems like the men are doing the solving and the books are all about all those boring hetero relationships instead of the trails and autopsies, the cases, the stories... and what happened to the mysteries?

Still, it was a mostly enjoyable and fast read, I just wish that they'd go back to the soul of the Women's Murder club books again. One mystery, all four ladies (I still miss Jill). ( )

This installment of the Women's Murder club series is not a disappointment. I had a hard time putting the book down. Well written and a lot of variety events happened that kept me reading on to get answers to all the adventures and mystery throughout.

It started with Lindsay giving birth to her daughter. The story leads into two killers who need to be stopped, while the police department was being detoured to a professor who keeps going into the precinct with dreams of murder before they happen. Plus, Clair is in turmoil and hot water because she lost a body in the morgue…. Fun as always and a must read. ( )

I really enjoy the Women's Murder Club series and was disappointed when the TV show didn't succeed. This is another good one. Fast-paced, filled with drama and twists and turns. If you like this series this is worth the read. ( )
