    I must admit that I don’t really have time to read fiction but your introduction to James Patterson and his romance novels are intriguing.  For me, romance stories are about hope – the hope that you too can love and be loved.  You have convinced me to spend more time doing what I loved to do when I was much younger – reading and reading and reading.

    Hi Jenny! I totally understand, we get so busy with our lives that we find it hard to find the time to do what we love most. I’m glad that I have convinced you to get back to reading. Thanks for your comment. Happy Reading!

    Hello Tracy you have given a wonderful list of books that I would love to read and it’s funny how I haven’t read most of the books you mentioned here even though I have heard a lot about Patterson’s works over the years. I am a big fan of adventures but I would love to read the romance of his words and see the difference he makes as well as how he plays suspense. Cheers

    This is the first time I am hearing about James Patterson writing romance novels. His thrillers are great, my kids read them all the time. But thriller isn’t something I am interested in, but now that romance has been thrown into the foray, I think I will read them. I actually read books really fast. So hopefully he has enough to keep me reading for a while.

    Quite some interesting things to see here about James Patterson. I really did not know that he writes children novels not to even see him as a romanticist. This is really great here and I will try to get some of his books to read. I really like writers that find it easy to switch up and diversify their areas of interest. Thanks so much for sharing here
