The Quickie by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge

Paul and Lauren’s marriage is in trouble. Lauren is sure he is having an affair and she decides the way to deal with his betrayal is to have an affair as well. As she spends an amazing evening with a man she has been dreaming about for some time, the night takes an unbelievable twist and Lauren finds herself in the middle of a nightmare.

This book is so fast paced and full of surprises it is hard to summarize it without giving anything away. Patterson hits the gate running from the prologue and doesn’t slow down until the last page. You will read this novel at a full sprint.
The Quickie stays true to its name and is an excellent poolside read for the summer or as a way to spice up a cold winter night. You won’t get bogged down with words or lost in a description of the weather and landscapes or deep inner thoughts. It’s simply action, action, action. Short and sweet, just like the book.
