I am using this book for the Eclectic Reader Challenge (Romantic suspense), Goodreads 2013 Reading Challenge, Bookworm Bitches 2013 A-Z Title Challenge, 52 Books in 52 Weeks, and Book Club Friday.
Summary from Goodreads: A successful lawyer and loving mother, Nina Bloom would do anything to protect the life she’s built in New York–including lying to everyone, even her daughter, about her past. But when an innocent man is framed for murder, she knows that she can’t let him pay for the real killer’s crimes. Nina’s secret life began 18 years ago. She had looks to die for, a handsome police-officer husband, and a carefree life in Key West. When she learned she was pregnant with their first child, her happiness was almost overwhelming. But Nina’s world is shattered when she unearths a terrible secret that causes her to run for her life and change her identity. Now, years later, Nina risks everything she’s earned to return to Florida and confront the murderous evil she fled. In a story of wrenching suspense, James Patterson gives us his most head-spinning, action-filled story yet–a Hitchcock-like blend of unquenchable drama and pleasure.
Verdict: 4 out of 5 stars. I hadn’t read a James Patterson book in awhile, but I have to say that this is one of his best! Especially the first half. The second half of the book seemed more formulaic but still wrapped the story up well. I’ll have to start reading his books again!
