    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...

    this is horrible. I mean an absolutely dreadful book. ALL of the characters are cliches. The plot is actually worse then a mid-70's Hollywood film about Washington corruption. The plot is painfully predictable. The "heart string tugs" actually induced nausea. this was selected by my...

    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 ...

    Barbara McBride butchered this book. Her mispronunciation of Maryland and Potomac made me cringe every time. Didn't anyone listen to this before publishing? Did anyone hear her pronounce these incorrectly? Anyway, the story was good but predictable. I think this is the lowest rating...

    The election is weeks away and it is looking promising for the President. Then his affair is revealed in a media blitz and his poll numbers are dropping. To top it off, the first lady has disappeared. It's assumed that she is licking her wounds at a horse ranch she loves, but then no o...

    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. ...

    What an exciting read! I loved every minute of it and had a very hard time putting the book down. I kept reading because you never knew what would happen next. Filled with twists and turns. ...

    It's four weeks until the election for the new President. Current President Tucker is enjoying himself at a hotel in Atlanta with his girlfriend, while his wife and first lady, Grace Tucker, is fulfilling the duties of her office. When the President leave the hotel with his mistress, a...

    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 ...

    One thing you can count on in recent Patterson books (besides unbelievable plots and cardboard characters) is at least one ludicrous sentence. My favorite in this book was the observation that a character's "eyes are moist but sharp, like knives coming out of a dishwasher." Good for a ...

    I've read many books written by James Patterson. I enjoy the ones Patterson wrote with fellow authors more than the ones he wrote alone. I found this to be true for this book. The story moved along at a steady pace. The plot had a few twists. There were action scenes. The female chara...

    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. ...

    Right out of the starting block like a horserace, the action begins when the U.S. President is confronted by a flock of newspaper reporters, cameras in hand, as he and the woman with whom we learn he's been having a secret affair are leaving a hotel trying their best to be discreet. An...

    I had to go through the most unbelievable struggle just to get my hands on this book, so you can imagine how excited I was when I finally got around to reading it. I'm not too sure about what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't this. I thought it was a great narrative to pass the ...

    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...

    The president is having a passionate affair with a member of his PR staff, but alas, the media catches on and all hell breaks loose. This was a delightful part soap opera, part thriller, part mystery as we see who will come out ahead in our little chess game. (view spoiler)[ The first ...

    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, ...

    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...

    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...
