Murder in Paradise Reviews
Very uneventful or entertaining for Patterson
The first one was ok (there are three stories in this book) the second one was stupid and the third one got me to read about 25 pages... and decided I've read enough. For murder/mystery you need so much more development in plot and characters that this just fell flat. If I had realized BEFORE I got it from the library that it was three stories in one book, I would have passed.
I was expecting a fun summer thriller. Instead, I got 3 short stories - not even by J. Patterson. Ugh. I tried. I read 2 out of 3 and I quit. The first was pretty good, the 2nd was awful and the 3?

The Lawyer life guard was a good mystery, romance combo. Lawyers must make the stupidest lovers since Brian never saw his fiancée’s bad side. But good overcomes evil and the lawyer gets the girl in the end. A fun story, with great family of do-gooders, with just a little bit of stretch in the imagination- would any decent ...more
