Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In an unusual departure, James Patterson gives us a quiet fable of love, loss, and healing.” Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A love story as suspenseful as any thriller.” People
“[Patterson’s] trademark feel for suspense is very much at work in this poignant and moving tale. It’s a showcase example of his versatility as a writer and will undoubtedly add to his ever-growing legion of dedicated fans.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Talk about a change of pace! Renowned suspense writer and Edgar Award winner James Patterson, author of such bestsellers-turned-blockbuster-movies as Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls, exposes his sensitive side in his new novel, Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“So how good is the novel? Good enough to lightly pluck the heartstrings and to impress with its craft and its calculation…Patterson sustains suspense through clever plotting and by Katie’s wondering about the fate of Suzanne and Nicholas; what’s finally revealed pushes her, and the novel, to a bittersweet conclusion. Patterson is one smart author (here, he dazzles with his use of refrains, stories-within-stories, and romance novel tropes); this jump into another genre won’t hurt his reputation as a master of popular lit.” Publishers Weekly
“For sheer genre-crossing audacity, you might think nothing could outdo John Grisham’s season on a Mississippi farm (A Painted House) until you read this relentlessly throat-clutching love story from thrillermeister Patterson…Patterson can keep the pot boiling even without the help of Alex Cross and a high body count…A moving, and fast-moving, fable.” Kirkus Reviews
“Patterson’s latest novel is a departure from the thrillers he is known for, but his fans will be pleased to find fast-paced suspense in this love story…Though there’s not a murder to be found among the pages, Patterson’s fans will find the familiar short chapters and surprising twists that they’ve come to expect from him, while those just looking for a good love story will find it here, too.” Booklist
“I am not going to suggest that Patterson’s usual readers will enjoy this venture; fans of romance novels, however, should pick it up and read without fear. Their adventurous action will be more than rewarded.” Bookreporter
