10th Anniversary by James Patterson

10th Anniversary by James Patterson
2011, Century
Series: Book 10 of Women's Murder Club

Synopsis: Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets.

At the same time, Assistant District Attorney Yuki Castellano is prosecuting the biggest case of her life - a woman who has been accused of murdering her husband in front of her two young children. Yuki's career rests on a guilty verdict, so when Lindsay finds evidence that could save the defendant, she is forced to choose. Should she trust her best friend or follow her instinct?

Lindsay's every move is watched by her new boss, Lieutenant Jackson Brady, and when the pressure to find the baby starts interfering with her new marriage to Joe, she wonders if she'll ever be able to start a family of her own.

The Good: Great interwoven mysteries I didn't see coming. Yuki is getting more interesting and it's about time. Maybe she just needed some male interaction. I especially loved Lindsay in this book, and her having to come to terms with being part of a married couple as opposed to just an individual who only consider herself.

The Bad: I would have loved to have seen a ton about Lindsay's wedding, since we've been leading up to it since almost the start of the series. It was glossed over so completely I thought I may have missed a book between the last one and this one. Also, in certain instances, main characters should die. Patterson has done it earlier in the series, so it's confusing as to why he's letting everyone live pretty much happily ever after.
