Be Careful What You Wish For

WOW! I’m positive that all Jeffrey Archer fans out there will join me when I say that he is NEVER boring. Every book is a thriller from start to finish – definitly the finish. But not a car chasing, gun toting kind of thriller like we see in movies or TV. It’s more of a psychological thriller, with unexpected twists and turns of plot that makes us wonder just how he thought this up. And everything is plausable and not far fetched, just darn smart. I was really excited when I learned that Be Careful What You Wish For is the 4th book in the Clifton Chronicles. For some reason or other I thought there were only 3 books in the series. Let the fun continue says I! You can read this book on it’s own, or you can get deeper into the characters and overall plot if you read the previous 3. I definitely suggest you start at the beginning. (Stop whining, it’s only 3 books.) Lordy, I’ve already written so much and yet said so little. I won’t divulge the shocking conclusion to book 3, nor will I tell you how book 4 starts out. I hate it when reviewers give too much away. Anyhoo… the life of Barrington Shipping continues, through ups and downs, with Emma at the helm of the ship so to speak. While Harry continues his writing career with best seller after best seller. And the usual cast of seconds are all there, and involved in the lives of Emma and Harry. Boring this isn’t, suspensful yes! One thing I will say for Archer is that he’s not afraid to kill off some of his characters, which sometimes shocks the reader because they just don’t see coming til it’s right under their noses. Now that’s a great writer! (You have this kinda “Oh No! moment.) My only criticism of this book is that I have to wait til next year to read the conclusion. This is definitely a ***** read.
