I was laughing at how ridiculous the beginning of this book was A group of four women decide to go on a little vacation to Monte Carlo. Each woman is married, some more happily then others, but not one of them seem to be fully satisfied with their lives. When they get off the plane they decide to lay poolside topless and quickly meet a few men.
Then they leave with the men to get a room and have a huge o This book made me laugh. Then they leave with the men to get a room and have a huge orgy.
JP's obvious sexual fantasies aside I could have probably dealt with the orgy coming on so quickly if they had given some reason why these women all wanted to go out and turn into massive skanks the second they are away from their husbands, and also if I could ignore the fact that one of the girls was described as shy and quiet, but she's right there to jump into the orgy It didn't make sense at all.
Anyways, it turns out that two men get killed that night, but all of our girls are, of course, too drunk to remember a thing Then it gets worse when they find out who one of the guys were He was undercover so they had no idea, but lets just say he's a very important person. Basically then they are immediately taken to jail and labeled terrorists. One night of craziness is costing them everything.
They are treated horribly at the jail, and are humiliated when their families all come to see what has happened. Most of the rest of the story takes place explaining what happens to them in jail, and their court appearances. As far as mysteries go this one fell flat. We are supposed to wonder who actually killed this man, and wonder if our wrongfully accused ladies will ever get out of jail, but honestly I didn't care at all.
Sure there was a hint of curiosity, but for the most part I kept thinking "what goes around comes around", and felt no sympathy for these women at all.
I almost did not finish this, but I'm glad I did. The ending was actually pretty good. View all 22 comments. Mar 26, Nuraini rated it really liked it. Have always love James Patterson's works!
I know I have to get this book after I read the preview. I mean, it was really an awesome page turner as I finished it within a night, mind you! You just can't put it down! I felt the character.
I felt Abbie's angst, courage, pain and the eagerness to find the whole truth. I really enjoyed the way the book flowed and this was an exciting read! View all 7 comments. Not at all like any James Patterson book I have read before.
A girls weekend away goes terribly wrong and these ladies end up in a horrific French prison Abbie is intelligent, and despite her incarceration and constant abuse, she figures out how her night of fun and passion goes wrong. I loved this book. The suspense built from page one and did not let up until the last page.
Great Read! View 1 comment. Most disappointing James Patterson book I've ever read. This is the first book review I have ever done and I'm sorry to say it is not a good review.

I am an avid reader and I have always looked forward to the new James Patterson books. I can't remember ever having a book that I just couldn't finish reading. I think this might be a first for me. I could ha Most disappointing James Patterson book I've ever read. The 1st part of the story had a lot of French terms that were seldom explained which made it hard to understand what was happening.
The story was very slow moving and I had to force myself to read some of it each day. Update - I had to find out whodunit, so I read the last or so pages.
The writing on those last pages were more like what I was used to with Patterson. View all 13 comments. Jan 24, jv poore rated it really liked it Shelves: Always a fan of James Patterson, I found this stand-alone to be a notch above what I've come to adore and expect from Mr.
Excellent twists and turns with a phenomenally badass heroine. May 04, Kathy rated it it was ok. I have read most or all of James Patterson's books. Compared to the others, this one was so-so. The plot was about as absurd as it gets. Four women go off on a girl's vacation, which is really a thinly disguised vacation to let loose and swing with the best. Of course, most are fabulously wealthy, so they can easily spend time throwing money around.
They pick up four guys and end up on a boat. There is a crime, for which the four are arrested, tried and found guilty. The whole plot idea was too I have read most or all of James Patterson's books. The whole plot idea was too unrealistic to be believed. I found the characters less than well developed, except for only one, Abbie. As usual with Patterson's books, this was an easy, fast read However, getting into the book was slow and rather difficult.
I started to decide this was one I simply could and would not read, but finally got into it. I think Patterson is starting to show that even he, the prolific novelist, can finally start to slow down. I guess he needs to pick the people with whom he writes and who probably provide the plot and basic book, which they edit and rework together, or he does all that himself better, so the storyline remains believable. Mar 29, Donna rated it did not like it Shelves: I usually love, love, love Patterson's books and can't put them down.
Unfortunately this wasn't one of them. Perhaps it gets better as you go along, but I just couldn't make myself spend anymore time on it. Four women jet off to Monte Carlo, drink, party heavily, and cheat on their husbands.
They wake up the next morning to chaos and are whisked away to be arrested for the murder of two men. At no point in all this did I develop any sympathy or affinity for these women. Do bad things, bad things I usually love, love, love Patterson's books and can't put them down. Do bad things, bad things tend to result. View all 6 comments. Feb 09, Mariah Roze rated it really liked it. This book was really good! I enjoyed every second of it.
I rented this book on CD from the library only because there were a few books on CDs left, and James Patterson is a popular writer so I was hoping his book would be good! And it was. The book turned out to be nothing that I expected.
There was a huge crime that the wives were convicted for and you spend the whole book trying to figure out who did it. Also, there was some extreme action at the jail.
I hope that the French government doesn't This book was really good! I hope that the French government doesn't actually let that type or any type of abuse happen. I normally don't like reading books that take place in Europe or have other languages mixed in the book, but with this book I didn't mind it at all and kind of enjoyed that aspect!
I suggest this book if you like mysteries: May 14, Dee Bright rated it it was ok. I generally love Patterson, but this one missed the mark for me.
I'll explain why, hopefully without giving away the ending for those who choose to read it. One example: You've got to be kidding! As usual with Patterson's books, the writing itself is excellent.
But the above issues got in the way of it being a good read.

If just one-tenth of what these authors wrote about Frances legal system is correct, then I have to really thank God for ours, no matter how it can seem unfair to some people at times.
This was a very fast-paced novel written in the first person. Everything is seen through the eyes of Abbie Elliot and I think that this creates a wonderful tension throughout the entire book and especially through the courtroom scenes and her incarceration. They are rich and very privileged women. In the first part of the book, leading up to their arrest and for even a time afterward, you will not feel that you will ever come to like or sympathize with them.
You may even feel contempt for them as I did, until the horrors of what they are facing starts and the unspeakable happens. Now they are involved in a murder investigation and implicated in the murder of a high powered person, one I would never have thought to be in a position TO be murdered!

The fast pacing, wonderful descriptions, and well-written trauma bring to life what is most likely every person's nightmare. I could not put this book down and if it is any reflection at all of what Mr. Patterson and Mr. Ellis can accomplish together, then I hope they will collaborate again in the very near future. Apr 22, Lynn rated it really liked it. Absolutely fantastic! I'm a long-time Patterson fan, but I've been frustrated with some of his recent books, because he's been allowing his co-authors so much freedom that the books no longer read like a Patterson book.
Not so with this one - or if David Ellis DID write most of it, I will make it a point to read all of his books as well, because it was spectacular! This story is told in the voice of Abbey, one of four wives who are arrested and framed for murder I'm intentionally leaving out de Absolutely fantastic!
This story is told in the voice of Abbey, one of four wives who are arrested and framed for murder I'm intentionally leaving out details of who was murdered, so not to spoil the surprise for others. Four female friends decide to go for a "girl's weekend" in Monte Carlo, and everything is downhill from there. Most of the book deals with Abbey's attempts to survive the French prison system and to prove her innocence. The writing is so rich in description that it is easy to become lost in it.
At times, I felt I was actually there, suffering alongside of Abbey and her friends. There is also a deliciously steamy love-making scene near the beginning of the book between Abbey and a famous movie star - a fantasy that most women can relate to.
This one ranks high on my "must read" list! View all 4 comments. Apr 02, Patricia rated it it was amazing. Four wives go to Monte Carlo for an all girls vacation. While there, they end up accused of murdering the French president and his body guard. They end up in prison knowing the someone set them up. But who and why? I highly recomend this book! Serena Schofield, a former U. Champion skier, she is the one footing the bill for this weekend. Her husband provides for her but it really is a loveless marriage.
Bryah Gordon, born in Johannesburg under the oppression of apartheid, her husband is very controlling and at times physically abusive, so this is her first ever weekend away with just the girls.
Winnie Brookes, an exotic Brit, beautiful inside as well as out. Then there is Abbie Elliot, her husband is a diplomat at the U. Embassy in Bern. They are all having a fabulous time hitting the casinos and clubs, eating delicacies, drinking champagne, sitting by the pool, drawing the attention of many handsome men.
Sounds like a wonderful weekend right? They are arrested for a crime so unbelievable. The vacation of a lifetime becomes the fight of a lifetime. This formula has produced many bestsellers. I had read two books earlier this year by David Ellis and was very impressed with his work. The theme of this book is interesting but there are just a couple of things that are keeping me from loving this book and giving it 5 stars. I am really starting to hate the 2 or 3 chapters at the beginning of a book that tell us almost word for word something happening later and then the story moves back to where the events started.
It takes away from the suspense. With that being said I did enjoy the story. The procedures followed by the French officials, detectives, prison guards and the ease of buying certain ones off really showed the French in a bad light. I have never been to France or in this situation but realize being in prison is no picnic.
What these ladies experienced could very well be true. It does make for a fine piece of fiction. Patterson and his co-writers do deliver good stories.
After so many and releasing so many each year I feel like they are getting to be rushed out to rake in the cash. My recommendation when you read this book start on page 15 and only read the first paragraph on page Then you will love this book!!!
View 2 comments. Mar 30, Kay rated it it was ok Shelves: Four women in their forties leave their husbands and children to fly off for a weekend in Monte Carlo. After spending an afternoon flirting with the pool boys and any men at the resort pool [2 of them topless no less] they hit a club where they pick up 4 strangers. Next is the casino and then back to a yacht for an orgy. Pardon me, but this sounds like a man's dream and not anything believable! From the background, these women appear to be stable and not with a Paris Hilton lifestyle!
Two of the Four women in their forties leave their husbands and children to fly off for a weekend in Monte Carlo. Two of the men are shot and one of those just happen to be the President of France! These four wayward women go to prison where there life is pure hell. Have no idea what the prisons in France are like and have no intention of finding out but if they are anything close to what is described I don't know what all the fuss was about with Abu Ghraib.
Those were terrorists and not desperate housewives tortured there!!!

Guilty Wives is a book I actually listened to while at work to usher me through those moments during the day when I'd felt like I'd been there a week instead of just a few hours and the narrator did an excellent job of keeping me interested in a story that I might have put down and then picked up and put down again. Probably not in the way JP intended, either. I was completely surprised by this and how well it all flowed. If the background of the women and their first day in Monte Carlo had been expanded, it might have been a better book.
Then they leave with the men to get a room and have a huge orgy. The other three wives were interesting but do not play as large a role in the book. Second Honeymoon. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable.
