"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"--… (més)

Awesome!! ( )

I quite enjoyed this book. The story was engrossing and fast paced ( )

After finishing this book, I've decided to stop cheating on my husband with movie stars in Monaco. The risk just doesn't seem worth it anymore

Guilty Wives isn't a good book by any stretch of the imagination. It reminds me of most episodes of Law and Order; by the 50-page mark (or in the show's case the 10-minute mark) you know who did it and why, and you're just waiting to see how the detectives figure it out and get the bad guys to confess. Also, unless over-the-top repetition of information is a Patterson trademark (I'm no expert), it is fairly evident that the co-authors of this book either wrote separate chapters and threw them together without much review or just couldn't be bothered to clean the book up. Plus, the plot was so far-fetched it was jarring, and the fact that Patterson felt we the readers needed a detailed explanation of how roulette works was kind of silly. Give us a little credit, Jimmy. Anyone who's blown any money on your stuff has probably gambled plenty of it away too.

It also isn't the worst book. It's a quick and easy read for those who aren't gifted with enough free time to take a swing at a War and Peace or a Ulysses. And to be fair, as implausible as Abbie Elliot's story is, it has its enjoyable moments. There's a character in the prison chapters of the book named Lexie who could potentially have been a fun lady to explore if anyone involved with this book had decided not to mail it in, but we know who we're dealing with here.

Really, Guilty Wives isn't pretending to be anything other than what it is, a run-of-the-mill thriller partially written by a guy who doesn't care all that much anymore but knows the formula to churning out best-sellers.

Does that make James Patterson the Adam Sandler of authors? I would hope not for the sake of David Ellis, who in this case would probably be Patterson's Rob Schneider. ( )
