You've Been Warned by James Patterson

The second book I finished while on vacation was You've Been Warned by James Patterson and Howard Roughan. This one was definitely not my favorite James Patterson book and I was really disappointed by it. I rate this a C-.

From Amazon:
Kristin Burns is making her way in New York City. Her photos are being considered at a major Manhattan gallery, she works by day with two wonderful children, and the man of her dreams is almost hers for keeps. But just as everything she's ever wanted is finally within reach, her life changes forever--with one murderous nightmare. Kristin wakes up every morning from the same chilling, unforgettable dream. And suddenly, it's visiting her during the day too. As her life turns stranger by the minute, Kristin is haunted and terrified. Is it all in her head? Or is the nightmare becoming her life? Kristin searches desperately for what's real through the lens of her camera, only knowing two things for sure: that no place is safe and the fate of everyone she loves lies in her hands.

This book is weird. It kind of lends itself towards a more paranormal book and from the description it didn't mention that. The book also seemed like it was too rushed and didn't make sense sometimes. I read the large print version and it was only 404 pages. I am so glad I didn't buy it though because that is a rip off. Kristin, the main character, was so difficult to like or even care for and I was totally unsympathetic. This hasn't turned me off of James Patterson, but I do hope that his time is dedicated more to quality than quanity. I wouldn't recommend it anyone, and even told my mom while we were on vacation to not bother reading it.
