I have become a fan of James Patterson, I don't normally read Patterson's books but I do love to listen to them on CD. This was an enjoyable, easy book listen to. The President's children are kidnapped, terrorists from the Mideast are causing havoc and turning up dead. Are the two connected? Detective Alex Cross is on the case. I felt this book lacked a little in depth and the plot wasn't as intriguing as I've come to expect from Patterson. However, I will continue to listen to Patterson's Alex Cross Series but hope the next book delivers a little more punch

In this book the main character Mikaela has a horse accident and is in a coma. Her husband Liam, a doctor, is in charge of the family and the children along with his mother-in-law Rosa. Nothing Liam does seems to help Mikaela come out of her coma. So he decides to make a call to Mikaela's first husband, a famous movie star named Julian True. His voice brings her out of her coma, but with no momory of her life with Liam or her children. Over a period of time, she regains her memory and remembers that she does indeed love her husband and promises him they would be together forever. As with all of her books it was a very enjoyable read.
Whether you knew who Ed Thomas was or not, whether you are a football fan or not, this book is an excellent and easy read. Ed Thomas was much more than a high school football coach. He believed in teaching his students and his athletes about life! His motto was "faith, family and football." Although he would have been the first to say he was not perfect, he practiced what he preached. From the tornado that ripped through Parkersburg, Iowa to the tragic shooting that claimed his life, I had trouble putting this book down. I highly recommend this book.
