Author James Patterson

Is pretty busy these days. Not only has his Women’s Murder Club drama back on tv as we blogged about on April 23rd but he has another new book that appeared on Monday not part of this very popular series.

This book is Sunday’s at Tiffany’s by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet.  The story sounds intriguing and seems like we will need a box of kleenex before we are done. 

If you go to James Patterson’s site you will see a chance to win a pair of Tiffany earrings, what girl can resist, www.jamespatterson.com.  You have to hurry because the contest to win the earrings ends on May 8th. 

Most everyone fan or not has heard of or read James Patterson but what about Gabrielle Charbonnet? You do not have to turn further then your children or a niece, nephew or grandchild because she has been delighting them with her books for years.  This is a departure from the Disney inspired titles she has been authoring for years
