Reviews Juror #3

  • Julie Garner
    Reminded me of an early John Grisham. Loved the fast pace courtroom drama.
  • Randall Allen
    Loved the main character, Ruby Bozarth. The courtroom scenes were nail-biters, and the storyline was compelling and gripping. Highly recommend.

    What an awesome book by James Patterson. I loved that it was somewhat a legal thriller (my alltime favor genre). One of my favourites from James Patterson and I WILL read again!!!!! Synopsis:Ruby Bozarth, a newcomer to Rosedale, Mississippi, is also fresh to the Mississippi Bar–and to the docket of Circuit Judge Baylor, who taps Ruby as defense counsel in a racially charged felony.The murder of a woman from one of the town’s oldest families h...

    I like this book because even though there were a lot of twists with the story, nothing came “out of left field”. The protagonist is a wrong side of the tracks girl who pulled herself up, set her goals and achieved them. Quite unexpectedly, she’s pulled back into a world that she thought she had left behind.
  • Victor The Reader
    Another solid Patterson read about a young defense attorney defending a man accused of murdering a female partygoer , as well as helping her former lover in a trial case (Grade: B+).
  • Linda
    Another good book by James Patterson and Nancy Allen. Recommend it for anyone!
  • Kathy
    This book is head and shoulders above the last Patterson book, Texas Ranger. Not only were the story lines good but the characters were likeable. I think co-writer, Nancy Allen is going to be outstanding.This book was very enjoyable.
  • Janet Cline
    I thought this was going to be a no brainer but it was good. I dont know how patterson does it!
  • Mary
    Wow, this was a really good read. I was not sure where it would go from the cover, but both stories were very intriguing. A page turner in the sense that it was a very good read and rooting for Ruby all the way!
  • Billie Davenport
    Enjoyable book with two stories entwined. I loved the setting, the South.
  • Judy Tice
    Juror # 3Read in two days and will be hard to pick up another book. Excellent story line, fast paced. What a gifted story teller. Have to read Readers Digest until I can pick up another book. But of course I read electronically.
  • Valerie
    Another typical Patterson!! Fast paced, good characters, an easy read, did it in one day!! Liked Ruby!
  • Cathy Sims
    I enjoyed this book on ....Audible....i could not stop listening. Every chapter. ..you will be waiting to hear what happens next.
  • Beth
    I liked this book because the characters were not total Southern caricatures. My favorite character is Suzanne. Read this story- you won’t regret it!
  • Caren Kellogg
    This book was really good. I’d love there to be a second “Ruby” book. She’s a believable & likable character. Loved the plot progression. Being from the South, I’d just tell the author that ‘y’all’ is always plural. 😁
  • Amy-K
    LOVED THIS BOOK. Ruby is a strong willed young new lawyer that doesn't give up. I enjoyed the little things such as a heel falling off a shoe in the court room to the larger things like a lying witness. This book had great characters with a pager turner story line. Highly recommended!
  • Julie Nortillo
    As far as Patterson goes, this was a fun read. It's nice to have a new character and some different story lines.
  • joe killough
    Great story, well written, a real page turner.
  • Laurie
    Couldn’t put this book down! Loved the main Character Ruby Bozarth!

  • Bobbie
    Very enjoyable book. Easy to read and a good story. I'm wondering if there will be sequels, possibly a new series
  • Mary Donegan
    SOOOOO disappointing !! This was was basically 2 BOOKSHOTS centered around the same lawyer character. I don't read short stories and this was not advertised as two separate legal cases. If these had been separate full-length storeis they would have gotten higher ratings. I like Nancy Allen's writing style. I guess because Mr. Patterson isn't pushing his bookshots any more, he's trying to hide them in "full length" books and getting $15 !! How dec...
  • Patricia Holovack
    This book began great. The voice of the Southern girl came through loud and clear. After the completion of the first trial, about one-third through, I lost interest. From the television promos, I expected one trial to last the entire book. The story could have stopped there. The big twist was that the juror who sat in the third seat was a troublemaker in the first trial and coincidently the third seat was occupied by another troublemaker in the n...

    I was halfway through this book when I saw a commercial on television by James Patterson which stated"I have read every John Grisham novel and this is my courtroom thriller". I think this sums it up perfectly as it was like a John Grisham novel. Ruby has moved to a small town in Mississippi and is assigned to her first murder case. I loved her character, as she was very spunky and never gave up even under the toughest of circumstances.. This is a...
  • Lori
    Ruby is a bit insecure as she starts her own law practice, stuck with murder case she tries to find her way. Many players come into her life, who can she trust, who is a liar and what has she stumbled into. Well it's a fun read and I just fell for Ruby and had to cheer her on, she's got spunk and grit she just needs to learn to use best to her advantage, can she pull it up and scare the big boys she has to come up against? She's got it! you go Ru...
  • Julian Stoudemire
    Legal thrillerThe plot and action was quite believeable. As a trial lawyer of more than 50 years, no lawyer would have been appointed to try a death penalty case who was not qualified. Retained counsel with assistance is believeable. The first case was a good stretch and the woven story worth the read!
  • Sherry Wessman
    Better Than His Last!I have to say, it held my interest, in a funny story of way. It was supposed to be funny, right?! I mean, she was such a bad lawyer! She did the dumbest things! She was lucky, that's all.
  • Francy
    How did poor old Ruby make it thru life being so dumb? Mostly an enjoyable read with a large dash of exasperation.
  • Chanel Chasanov
    good legal thriller. enjoyed
  • Stefanie
    3.5 stars..very enjoyable quick read, I just wish the conclusions to each of the 2 cases in this book would have been more in depth , they felt a little rushed.
