Yep! He's my all-time favorite author. I buy the hard covers because I can't wait! Read them all so far. Another author you might like is Michael Connolly - he is an outstanding writer along the lines of James' Alex Cross series. Jonathan Kellerman and Faye Kellerman can be good too. Jenn is right - Patterson has some real tear jerkers out there - I read them and cry my eyes out - but hey - don't we always feel better after a good cry?
Welcome to "The Club!" (sorry, couldn't resist)...

I LOVE Patterson! My favorite books are the Women's Murder Club (love the show, too) and his more romantic books are fabulous. Yes, they are tear jerkers, but I absolutely love them. I think I've read just about all his books. I'm a huge fan. The good thing about him is that the chapters are short, and he has new books out all the time! I just read two of his newest ones, and boy were they good!

I love his books too, especially the Alex Cross and Women's Murder Club. I liked the Alex Cross movies, but I think that Morgan Freeman was too old to play Alex Cross - should have been Denzel Washington.

I'm a huge James Patterson fan, Shari! He's one of my most favorite authors, and his books are always great for a fun and easy read.

I have read every Jimmy P book out there! He is amazing! I picked up the first one 6 years ago...Roses Are Red. Ever since I saw Morgan Freeman play the ALex Cross character I picture him in hte stories...haha. What TV show?! I've been out of the US too long apparently.

Sounds like I'd better find these books! I love mysteries but hesitate to allow myself a fiction read. I somehow manage to ignore every other living being in the house until it is finished. Traces back to my teenage bookworm years when I was free to spend all free minutes reading. (When students in our high school complain about 'sustained silent reading' time in school I'm amazed! What I would have done for time to read for myself DURING the school day! We won't talk about the times I got caught with a novel tucked into a textbook....)

I'm with you there Kim! But then I never let that faze me in or out of school. The kids learned to fend on their own and as a matter of fact are both bookworms when they have time to read too
Like the TV show but never read his books. I will have to check them out of the library...that is if they are in!
