Publisher's Summary

No husbands allowed.
Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they're free to live someone else's life. As the weekend moves into pulsating discos, high-stakes casinos, and beyond, Abbie is transported to the greatest pleasure and release she has ever known.
What happened last night?
In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable. And now the vacation of a lifetime becomes the fight of a lifetime - for survival. Guilty Wives is the ultimate indulgence, the kind of nonstop joy-ride of excess, friendship, betrayal, and danger that only James Patterson can create.

Powerful book for Women!!!!

Would you listen to Guilty Wives again? Why?

I have listened to Guilty wives at least 20 time... January LaVoy was great at reading and depicting the cruel Lucy and Sabin.... her french accent was spot on.... I love how she depicted Abbey as a strong, highly moraled woman trying to keep her sanity together.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Abbie Elliot was my favorite because she was depicted as a strong and clever woman... she never gave up hope and was never bullied. I like Lucy and Sabin as well they were depicted as ugly, corrupt and just plain nasty people. Lynnette depicted as the helpful sweet co-prisoner of Abbey and had helped Abbey through her ordeal while in prison.


What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

This is the first time I have heard January Lavoy and as of right now I am trying to find books that she has performed on. The one reason I love this book was her performance... the way she depicted Abbie's strength; quick wit or quick witted remarks towards the villains was at times hilarious and I found myself clapping and crying at the same time. I hope she reads more for James Patterson ... As a matter of fact i have just finished the 11th Hour by James Patterson and I loved her performance there as well...


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were two events: the death of Lynette and the Wendie as well as when Abbie finally was able to escape prison... I was on pin and needles listening to her when Abbie was on the last gate and the guard asked her about her bandage. (thinking it was the evil Lucy)...


Any additional comments?

Yes as I have said earlier I hope January LaVoy will read more of the James Patterson books (Women's murder club; etc) because I just love listening to her....

I would highly recommend this book to everyone .... it has drama, sexiness and hopefully they make this into a movie would love how Abbie and Ingersoll have a series like Alex Cross and the Bennett series.

Loved it!

Would you listen to Guilty Wives again? Why?

The story was really good. Even though you could guess "who done it" you weren't sure why or how. The narrator's accents were amusing.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Guilty Wives?

I don't want to spoil it with my favorite part.


What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voices and accents of the different characters!


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Being a mom the children killed me.


Any additional comments?

I listen to books for amusement when I am driving or getting ready for work. I am busy and don't have a lot of time to read(even though I love to read.) I could not stop listening to this book. Anytime any of my family members heard parts of this book they wanted to know what was happening. It pulled them all in.
