First Thought When Finished: I really liked the mystery in 2nd Chance by James Patterson!
What I Loved: The mystery was really strong in this addition to the series. I really loved how it weaved in all the characters and through that we got to know more about them. It also gave you a bit of back story which was really interesting. I am not going to give anything away but once I thought I figured it out–one more loop was thrown into the mix.
What I Liked: We are really getting to know the characters more! I am beginning to like them all and can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
Audio Review: I liked the duel voices of a male and female narrator! However, Melissa Leo was a bit stronger which is good because she was the bulk of the book. I love Jeremy Piven though and he voices a good bad guy!
Final Thought: This was a great 2nd edition to the series. While I don’t think you have to read these in order (each case stands alone), I think you would miss character development if you read them out of order.
