    Book Review: Jack and Jill, by James Patterson

    How often do you pick up a book and begin to read, only to find that you quite simply, “Can’t put it down?” Perhaps once in every twenty instances…every hundred? “Jack and Jill,” by James Patterson, was one book which provided me with just such an experience.

    I purchased “Jack and Jill” only very recently at London’s Heathrow Airport, when I found myself devoid of reading material for a short haul flight to Germany. I began reading the book in the Departure Lounge, continued to do so throughout the flight, then proceeded to spend several subsequent hours completing it when I could - and perhaps should! - have been involved in other activities.

    "Jack and Jill" is one of the earlier novels in James Patterson’s, "Alex Cross" series. Cross is both a qualified psychologist and a detective in the Washington, DC, Police Department.

    The action begins with the cold-blooded but calculated murder of a United States’ Senator in his own Washington apartment by a couple calling themselves, “Jack and Jill,” while elsewhere in the city, a killer of an entirely different ilk begins preying on young children. Soon, Alex Cross finds himself and his team deeply embroiled in both investigations, his motivation in each case chillingly different.

    As the killing of high profile celebrities by “Jack and Jill” continues, it soon becomes apparent who their prime target is and that all the other killings are mere “rehearsals” for the main event. Can Alex Cross stop them in time and prevent the United States being plunged in to chaos?

    Meanwhile, the child murderer is still on the loose and active and Cross finds himself working more and more hours as he fights to devote more time to what is becoming an increasingly personal case.

    This novel doesn’t allow the reader to draw breath, the action coming thick and fast, whipping along at breakneck speed. It’s one fault is, that like all good things, it has to come to an end…

    Book Review : The Secret Shopper Unwrapped

    Emily, Sandie and Grazia are back in the sequel to The Secret Shopper’s Revenge. Emily is living happily with Will and her son Freddie, they are trying to keep Bell’s Emporium afloat during the recession. Things get worse when Freddie’s father, Duncan is back on the scene. The demands he is making  put Emily and Will’s relationship under massive strain and Emily’s dreams of a picture-perfect family Christmas are thrown out of the window.

    Grazia is starting to think about her future without Leon. After going under-cover at a cosmetic surgery clinic, she decides to have a few procedures done but will this make her any happier? When she meets a younger man in a bar she is surprised as to how much they have in common and unsure what his reaction would be to her real age.

    Meanwhile, Sandie is running the mystery shopping agency from Toby’s gorgeous pent house apartment. She is incredibly happy but then she has her first meeting with the potential mother-in-law from hell; her own mother shows up several years after disappearing and then she gets a shock that changes everything.

    Kate Harrison throws a new character into the mix. Kelly is a bit of a rough diamond, she starts work as Sandie’s new assistant. This is her first ever job and she loves it but can she really be trusted 100% when Sandie hardly knows anything about her?

    I did enjoy this book but it was very strange to read something set at Christmas when it is June and the sun is shining! It did make me feel extremely festive though and I only wish that I had read it at a more relevant time.

    Emily, Grazia and Sandie are  still brilliant characters but I wish there had been a little more interaction between them in this book. It was interesting to see what had happened since we left them and I thought that Kate Harrison gave us a really good sequel. Kelly is an interesting new addition and she certainly shakes everything up, you are left guessing throughout as to whether she can be trusted or not.

    If you liked the first book then you will enjoy this one, I enjoyed reading it now but I think it would be even better in the run up to Christmas.

    In the Kitchen by Monica Ali “Gabriel Lightfoot is an  enterprising man from a northern England mill town, making good in  London. As executive chef at the once-splendid Imperial Hotel, he is  trying to run a tight kitchen. But his integrity, to say nothing of his  sanity, is under constant challenge from the competing demands of an  exuberant multinational staff, a gimlet-eyed hotel management, and  business partners with whom he is secretly planning a move to a  restaurant of his own. Despite the pressures, all his hard work looks  set to payoff. Until a worker is found dead in the kitchen’s basement.  It is a small death, a lonely death - but it is enough to disturb the  tenuous balance of Gabe’s life.” “Elsewhere, Gabriel faces other  complications. His father is dying of cancer, his girlfriend wants more  from their relationship, and the restaurant manager appears to be  running an illegal business under Gabe’s nose.” Enter Lena, an eerily  attractive young woman with mysterious ties to the dead man. Under her  spell, Gabe makes a decision, the consequences of which strip him naked  and change the course of the life he knows - and the future he thought  he wanted.
