Book Description

Sept. 18 2012
No husbands allowed

Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they're free to live someone else's life. As the weekend moves into pulsating discos, high-stakes casinos, and beyond, Abbie is transported to the greatest pleasure and release she has ever known.

What happened last night?

In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened--something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable. And now the vacation of a lifetime becomes the fight of a lifetime--for survival. GUILTY WIVES is the ultimate indulgence, the kind of nonstop joy-ride of excess, friendship, betrayal, and danger that only James Patterson can create.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and Thought Provoking May 26 2012
Format:Hardcover
Guilty Wives by James Patterson and David Ellis

I have not read anything recently by either author so I can't judge this book by any past books of theirs. All I can say about Guilty Wives is `wow'. If anyone is looking for something that will keep your brain engaged and keep you on the edge of your seat, then I cannot recommend this book enough.

If just one tenth of what these authors wrote about Frances legal system is correct, then I have to really thank God for ours, no matter how it can seem unfair to some people at times. This was a very fast-paced novel written in the first person. Everything is seen through the eyes of Abbie Elliot and I think that this creates a wonderful tension throughout the entire book and especially through the courtroom scenes and her incarceration.

Abbie and her three close friends are going away for a girl's weekend in Monte Carlo. They are rich and very privileged women. They have also been somewhat mistreated by their husband's, and in one instance even abused, so that gives them a bit of leeway to act as they did when first arriving in Monte Carlo. In the first part of the book, leading up to their arrest and for even a time afterwards, you will not feel that you will ever come to like or sympathize with them. You may even feel contempt for them as I did, until the the horrors of what they are facing starts and the unspeakable happens. Now they are involved in a murder investigation and implicated in the murder of a high powered person, one I would never have thought to be in a position TO be murdered!

The fast pacing, wonderful descriptions and well-written trauma bring to life what is most likely every persons nightmare.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing April 21 2012
Format:Hardcover
Boring and not very well written. Lots of mistakes using a language the authors know nothing about. Shoud have it checked before publishing. Not worthy of David Ellis.

By page 87 I knew this was an absurd book. Plot is over the top fiction, overwrought, would never happen and you have to suspend disbelief so much you may as well quit now. Gone are the glory days of Patterson with the "Kiss the Girls" books. Seems he now adds his name to anything. The book is only 400+ pages because the type is so large. At first I thought I had purchased the eyesight impaired edition. I skimmed over most of the book - especially the ludicrous courtroom drama and prison scenes. So stupid!

I could not put it down. This is a wonderful story and expertly written. Being in LP also made it easier for me to read since my eye sight is not what it used to be. I wish you would offer more books in LP.
