I picked up The 19th Christmas by Maxine Paetro & James Patterson because I needed something quick and easy to pick up and set down. I honestly don’t know why I continue with this series. The issue is that the series has gotten way too big. The first books were great. They focused on three women and their roles in the criminal justice system.
Now there’s a journalist, all their significant others, and children and its just too much for 368 pages. I think in The 19th Christmas there might have been a chapter where the Women’s Murder Club got together with all their spouses. It’s just not the same.
Despite all of that the storyline really keeps The 19th Christmas going. I really think that is why I keep reading them. They are just satisfying enough. I have got to stop buying these books though. They’re worth a library check out but not $15.00 on release day. (I got this one on sale for $5!)
