Penguins of America - James Patterson,Jack Patterson,James Madsen,Florence Yue

Exquisitely -executed reproductions of iconic images of USian paintings and photography. Only with penguins instead of people. And one-liner captions.

 

It might have been amusing had it been poorly-drawn, amateurish, or childish cartoons. The internet Is mostly humorless jokes. But there is no amusing caption that can withstand such painstakingly art: these pictures, which are lovely, demand captions that take them seriously. Where it is charming to frame your child's kindergarten art and story, hiring pros to jazz it up is just creepy and sad and disappointing for everyone.

The Store by James Patterson
The Store - James Patterson

To me, this was a poor ripoff of Bentley's "The Store". There was a reason I quit reading Patterson's work a long time ago. I should have stuck to my guns. This guy puts out like 50 books a year (being a bit sarcastic, but not far from the truth), and it shows.
Not recommended.

Dazzling
Dazzling: The Diamond Trilogy, Book I (BookShots Flames) - Elizabeth Hayley,James Patterson

Siobhan is an artist who takes a hostess job at an upscale bar. Derick is a billionaire (aren't they all?) who patronizes the bar. Siobhan literally falls down (seriously- she HAS to be clumsy) in front of him. But wait! He catches her and is instantly interested.
This was predictable and boring. Luckily, this was short, so I didn't waste a lot of time on it or money (Thanks to the library!). It's also part of a trilogy- cliffhanger ahead! No HFN (much less a HEA). And guess what? I really don't care and won't be reading further.

Kiss the Girls
Kiss the Girls - James Patterson

Like the first book in this series, Kiss the Girls is a fast-paced read that kept me from putting it down. It has some gruesome details of murders and rape and isn't a story for everyone. I liked the connection to the Underground Railroad which was ironic since I'm also reading The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. I liked the ending of this story too although, I won't go into that.

 

Alex Cross learned that his niece is missing. She was away at College in North Carolina and had been missing for 4 days before the police had contacted her family. The local police wouldn't give them any information so Alix decided to go in person. It was like stepping backward through time where a black man gets no respect.  Once he was there he found that there were several girls missing from Duke University and they were all beautiful, educated women. Alex starts his own investigation hoping to find his niece alive. The story gets intense very fast when they get a lead in LA and they find out they may be dealing with more than one serial killer.

 

Yup, I'll be reading more of this series.
