Mystery Lover 68
So bland. Unimaginative.
My fault for purchasing this book. Woods has given up writing quality fiction.
Where, oh where did the real Stuart Woods go? You know, the Stuart Woods that used to write the interesting books, the ones that were not predictable. Thank goodness I borrowed this one from my library (and returned it after 7 chapters) because I would be beyond upset if I'd paid actually hard earned money for this. I'd much rather wait 6-9 months for a book with substance than this constant drivel.
This may be one of the worst Stuart Woods books ever published. A real disappointment. Mr. Woods has demonstrated over the years that he knows how to write and construct an exciting story. Neither of those talents is on display here. Perhaps Mr. Woods in his pursuit of building a "Patterson" like brand is wasting his talents on publishing by the pound and ignoring quality.

I used to be a fan of this series but the books are getting worse and worse. This one reads as if it is just a list of things the author wants to buy - names of stores, restaurants, planes, cars... but no story. I may as well just watch Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
I wanted to read something 'light' during a post-op recovery but this is the worst book I've ever read in my life. It's shallow, simplistic and just plain boring. Don't waste your money on it!

Very, very disappointed in this book. Not up to Woods’ standards. Wish I had the $ back to spend on something else.
Do not buy this book! Stuart Woods has run out of stories to tell. I have read all of his books, and the last few lack depth, character development, strength of plot, etc.
The first 1/3 of this book very boringly walks through the purchases of a newly-wealthy lottery winner, who (of course) happens to end up a client of Stone Barrington. I felt like I was reading someone's (very boring) account of their shopping expeditions.
This book was not entertaining in any way, nor was it worth $13.99. Do not buy this book!!
Tabloid articles have more of a plot; lacks most of what made many of the earlier books in this series entertaining to read. Save hours of your life, and money, and skip reading/buying this book.
Time is $
Very disappointing. Seems like the whole book was written in an afternoon while trying to recover from the flu. Weak plot, characters, completely unbelievable even for fiction.
To begin, I have been a huge fan of Stuart Woods. I have every book that he has ever written. In my opinion, is by far the worst book he has written. Most of the book centered around a lottery winner and what he bought with his money. Boring!! Very little plot between two ex-cons trying to get his money. I was certainly disappointed. I believe Stuart Woods is a better writer than this. I will really have to think very hard before spending $15 on his next book.
