My favorite authors: Tess Gerritsen, Anne Perry, Deborah Crombie, & Lisa Scottoline. Also, MC Beaton/Marion Chesney writes hilarious fluff.
I've read a bunch of books by Tess Gerritsen, and I really enjoy her medical thrillers. However, this seems to be more of a "Harlequin Intrigue" book. The focus is on the relationship between the couple, rather than the mystery/crime, which is not very engaging. And by "which" (in the previous sentence) I mean BOTH are dull - the relationship between the H/h and the mystery itself. I didn't like or dislike the hero and heroine...they didn't have much of an impression on me at all. I felt that the story dragged near the end, and could have been wrapped up more quickly. In fact, I felt that it probably could have been condensed to half the length that it was. Don't get me wrong - it wasn't terrible, but after reading Gerritsen's later works, I kept thinking about how much better her other books are (as I was listening to this one). I also was not a fan of the person reading the book; I've heard a lot of audiobooks and I think they could have chosen someone better. I was not impressed by her "accents."
Terri Gerritsen keeps you at the edge of your seat anticipating action. I could not stop listening!!
Story line keeps flowing and keeping my attention
Overall a good performance. Sometimes I had to listening closely to determine which character was speaking but overall good job.
The ending was spellbounding. I almost got frustrated that the story time would speed forward with the outcome. LOL
I will definitely buy another book from this author. Very enjoyable and exciting!
Who knew Tess Gerritsen could write romance! This is definitely not one of her typical high suspense murder thrillers, but I thought it was a good mix of light romance, a little suspense and a murder mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this one.
Let me start by saying that I really like all the books I have listened to by Tess Gerritesen, but this audo book was the only one that I wanted to turn off at the begining. The story is good. The characters are good. The reader is not. There wasn't much difference between each character, especially the males. They all fell prey to her horible voice over. I have not been one to criticize so far, but this one I did have to speek out on. Please Tess Gerritsen, pick someone better next time....
If you can get past her voice, like I forced myself to, the plot is really good. Maybe this would be a better book to get than the audio version :)
The storyline was predictable but I still enjoyed it. Tess has a way of keeping your attention and wanting more. The insecurity of the two main characters got to be a bit much, but was necessary for the story to work. I highly recommend it.
Tess is a great writer her books grab you from the first sentence and keep you listening to the end -- this book was no exception but rather what I have come to expect from her. the characters are down to earth and you get the feeling that you could know them, live next to them, or meet someone just like them in a chance encounter. Not always the happy ending keeps this book real and interesting. Worth listening to.I'm sure she will become one of your favorites as she has mine since the first book of hers I read.
