The 5th Horsemen by James Paterson and Maxine Paetro

The 5th Horseman (Women's Murder Club #5)The 5th Horseman by James Patterson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Once again we are transported into the life of Lindsay Boxer. This time around she is torn between the job she has and the one she really wants to do. Unlike most cops who welcome promotions, the Lieutenant misses being on the street bringing the bad guys to justice. There are two cases that Lindsay and her team have to solve in this book. The in first case dead girls are being left in expensive sports cars. Meanwhile, at a local hospital people are unexpectedly dying.
I have to say that I have a real love hate relationship with this book. The car girl murders were great and the twist at the end was well worth the read. The ICU deaths on the other hand were preposterous and unbelievable. Their only purpose being for future plot development. That said I did like this book an would recommend it to anyone who likes mysteries, and drama.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every child hates to move and Tina is no exception. She is leaving her best friend and a wonderful mall for desert and a old farm house. Tina's only consolation is that she can work for a local ranch where she can ride in exchange for a little hard work. When the ranch owner asked if she would like to go on a cattle drive with them she jumped at the chance. On their journey one of the calves goes astray however and her well trained horse takes her on a wild goose chase to retrieve it. You will never believe the wild adventure she has. I have to say that with out a doubt this short story is well worth the read for any age group that likes fantasy, horses, and a little bit of mystery.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to know exactly what someone wanted just by looking at them? No guess work or painful conversation where they may or may not be truthful with you? Well that is what this book is all about. Ellie Quartern and her mother have a gift of sight that allows them to see what peoples deepest desires are. Its main focus is a search for Ellie's mother. She has gone missing so Ellie hires Tim Coates a privet investigator to find her. In the possess they both find something wonderful and horrible out about themselves. I really like the concept of this book but I do not think that it was executed very well. It seemed to be out of order and it ended very abruptly leaving you with a sense of informational loss. If you have nothing better to do and you like mystery, romance, drama and a bit of fictional documentary all rolled in to one then this book is for you.
