Now You See Her By James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge

The Book:


Nina Bloom is living a perfect life with her daughter Emma in New York and she would do anything to keep her life intact, even if it means lying to her loved ones about the past. But when an innocent man is accused of a crime he never committed, Nina chooses to enter the life she left back 18 years ago. Pregnant and wife of a successful and handsome cop in Key West, she had everything a girl would dream off.

But yet, she had to escape? Who was she running away from and why did she have to fake her death? Is it a wise step now to go back to Key West to rescue a man she knows is innocent?

The View:

My love for James Patterson always drives me to the author “P” bookshelf when I see any new title by him. I cannot deny the fact that I have had a few disappointments this year with some of his books, but I cannot give up on him. Luckily for me ‘Now you See Her’ was one of the better books.

It is no surprise that all of his books are fast paced, with short chapters, quick excitement and heart throbbing thrills. ‘Now you See Her’ is no exception. There were twists that were outright unexpected, I almost shuddered when the Jump Killer catches her during her staged escape. Only a master story-teller could have pulled off his entry and her escape after that. When he re-enters the story 18 years later, he appears even more vicious and I was just glad the story ended the way it did.

Nina is a delight from the very beginning. When the narration enters her past you just cannot put the book down; too much happens with her in too little a time and each event more exciting than the previous. She copes with all the trauma thrown at her with commendable ease and even manages to escape it. I liked the courage she showed when she chose to go back to Key West to save an innocent man. She surely added a lot of interest to the plot by her mere presence.

Rated a 4 on 5 as this book can alternate both as a cozy winter joy or a hot summer fun.
