Fortunately, in “The Inn,” we have a fun, intriguing tale set in New England. The main character, for me, was easy to identify with and to empathize with: To refrain from spoilers, I’ll just say that he got into trouble while on the police force and, not long after he lost his job, he also lost his wife. The point is, he’s striving to provide advice and/or assistance to younger folks that he hopes can avoid his types of errors. Of course, I’m a sucker for heroes seeking redemption.
BLUSH FACTOR: Aside from a few eff-words, this is the sort of story one would expect in modern literature. As for me, I have no qualms with a few spicy expletives, but I know some readers will want to know.
WRITING & EDITING: The dialogue and inner thoughts expressed to us feel authentic and flow in a natural way. Mind you, this is NOT award-winning writing and not a classic. It is, though, an interesting fun read that, if you do as did I, makes for a terrific Audible narration for listening while commuting. The editing is thoroughly professional.
I have chosen to not include an excerpt, since the reader can get a satisfactory feel for the writing by sampling the first ten percent.
As I stated up front, James Patterson crime stories can be hit-or-miss. With “The Inn,” we get an authentic hit that feels much as if it was taken from today’s headlines.
Four stars out of five.
The title of this book is also the primary setting and home to a ragtag bunch of long term residents that have melded into an unusual, but stalwart family. Faced with a threat from a drug dealer, this band of misfits rally together to do whatever is necessary to protect and serve their retired officer, now Inn owner.
Candice Fox is a great developer of characters so these folks will work their ways into your heart. They are the epitome of quirky and take actions that gave me great pause on more than a few occasions. They also have really rough language including f-bombs, Divine epithets and other assorted expletives. The language is not gratuitous but it is blue. The action is Patterson doing his thing and he does it well; mystery with a side of adventure and a tiny touch of romance. Yes, please!
“The Inn” is written by professional authors and edited by the same. This is obvious from the first page and when the last page is turned, or clicked, a few short hours later, it seems unfathomable that you’ve been to New England and back on this wild adventure and it’s still the same day or two later 📚

Thoroughly enjoyed the read, got involved with the characters, and the way they interacted with each other. Love his way of writing in short chapters, can read quite a few at night without having to finish in the middle of a chapter.
Would like to see more of these types of writing, but given his prolific output, anything is nice from Mr Patterson and Co.,
