I really enjoy Maxine Paetro’s writing and found this novel, like the last one, to be a good read. I know that many people do not enjoy collaborations books where James Patterson writes with someone else. But this is not the case for me. And The Women’s Murder Club is top of my list of series to read.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Random House South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
