Top 3 Favorite Books

  1. First to Die
    Written by James Patterson, published March 2001
    This is my favorite book because it’s different. It is about a homicide detective who solves murders achieved by serial killers. The killer in this story is killing newlywed couples throughout San Francisco. This one is the first of 16 and by far the best.
  2. Mistaken Identity
    Written by Lisa Scottoline, published in 1999
    This is a massive book but well worth the time. It is slightly twisted and keeps the reader interested until the end. Very captivating for sure.
  3. Fourth of July
    Written by James Patterson, published in 2005
    This is the fourth book in the Women’s Murder Club series (first listed above). It is a great book because it is very emotionally trying towards the main character and she suffers through a lot. It is inspirational to me as I strive to be a woman in law enforcement.
