    A fast, easy read for a rainy day. Thought it was okay, but felt that the twists were pretty predictable. Just found myself thinking what embellishments they wrote about the White House offices were true.... That thought makes me feel very anxious! ...

    This book should have been better than it was. I got the sense they just didn't take the time to really edit, and ended up with a bit of a hot mess. I enjoyed the set-up, and the pacing (as usual with Patterson) made it easy to keep going. There's a theme of female empowerment that I e...

    I have to admit. First I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy this book as I found The President is Missing hard to get into and it ended up being a DNF for me. The First Lady, on the other hand, I did enjoy as I loved the character of Grace Tucker - the first lady. She was strong, stood ...

    This is the 1st of the collaborations of James Patterson and Brendan Dubois that I've read and its a thoroughly entertaining political thriller...Starts with a bang and carries that page-turning momentum through the entire book...The President is caught in an affair and the First Lady ...

    TWENTY-ONE MINUTES before the ambush, Harrison Tucker?former state senator, former Ohio governor, President of the United States, leader of the free world, and a month away from being reelected in a landslide to a second term?is lying on his stomach on a king-size bed in an Atlanta...

    Hugely entertaining political thriller, although its writing feels less 'Pattersony', and not as good, as in other Patterson books I've read recently. Nevertheless, I enjoyed every page and gobbled it up. Review to follow shortly on For Winter Nights. ...

    Finally out for reading... James Patterson and Brendan DuBois renew their collaborative efforts with a new book full of thrills and political intrigue. As US President Harrison Tucker makes his final push for re-election, he finds himself in an awkward position. Caught leaving an At...

    I felt this was slower-paced than many of James Patterson?s books and a political thriller rather than a murder/crime story. The plot was good with many twists although I felt it lost momentum in the middle. 3-4 stars ...

    A light political thriller and a good collaboration, kudos to Brendan Dubois. I read The Cornwalls Are Gone and I much prefer The First Lady between the two. There are a few unanswered parts but overall this was a fun and quick read. ...

    This fast paced novel co-written by James Patterson and Brendan DuBois was indicative of other Patterson novels I have read in that the key characters were quickly introduced to the reader and their specific roles and circumstances established promptly so that the narrative could rapid...

    James is back but this time he's lost something valuable- Our First Lady! Well kind of as she's tucked away in a rural area but not many know until money comes into play or as they say you might have to pay out the ARSE. Well, for starters she might've wanted to run after all she jus...

    If you follow my reviews you know I gave up on James Patterson long ago; however, was between novels and this one was available at the library so gave it a try. Will admit not nearly as bad as past Patterson books - maybe the addition of Brendan Dubois as co-author helped. I found the ...

    A lot better than JP's last one. President gets caught in an affair. Happens all the time, but what doesn't happen is the First Wife going missing. Secret Service is called in. Is she really missing? Does the President really want her found? What lengths will his Chief of Staff go to, ...

    Another great fast to read book by James Patterson. What was amusing to me, was how this book showed how little was the contribution of the co-author to the other book in a similar setting. That said this basis of the story in this novel involves the unplanned disappearance of the Firs...

    I found this book incredibly frustrating as there were so many stupid things happening. Here?s a few examples; - There?s no way the First Lady would have been in that cabin and not found. She was only 3 miles upstream. - The horse farm had a shed full of illegal immigrants and d...

    Please believe me when I tell you that THE FIRST LADY should be on your must-read list. It begins with a compelling premise, spirals off into a couple of different intriguing directions, and then all comes back together for an ending you probably won?t see coming while answering a qu...

    I am giving this bok five stars because I could not stop reading this collaboration by Patterson and DuBois. I finished in seven-plus hours. They both deliver in spades! I have been waiting to read this book for a few months, and finally got a copy. Since I also loved "The President is...

    Excellent story. Well written and interesting throughout. My only complaint is with the person who recorded the audiobook. It became a distraction waiting on her to mispronounce another word, as there were many. My favorite was when the lead character drove across the Potomac River, pr...
