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.
I gave Guilty Wive by James Patterson and David Ellis 5/5 stars.
Its been a while since I’ve read a 500 page book in a 24 hour period, but Guilty Wives got me back to doing that. I literally was so mad each time I had to put it, which sucked cause I did a majority of my reading while I was at work an kept having to put it down.
Guilty Wives is a fast pace thriller/suspense that had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time. Right when I thought I knew what was going on Patterson and Ellis threw me for a twist, leading deeper into this rabbit hole with Abbie, trying to figure out exactly what happen the night that her and her friends were accused of murder.
Now my biggest wish for Guilty Wives is that there would of been an epilogue at the end. So many of Patterson’s novels include an epilogue , but Guilty Wives didn’t and I think it would of really benefited from one. At the end it is all tied up quickly and I would of really enjoyed seeing where the characters where 1-2 years after the event of the novel.
