    "Not what I have come to expect from Tess Gerritsen"

    Until now, Tess Gerritsen was, for me, equivalent to "edge of your seat" thrillers and characters full of personality. The Harvest, Gravity, wonderful medical thrillers. Her Jane Rizzoli in The Surgeon... superb. And now, this book that had me repeating "oh please" as I hit the forward button to bypass the unbelievable nonsensical musings of the two main characters. I actually had to go back and make sure that this was a book by the same Tess Gerritsen that I had come to enjoy so much reading; in short, if you are a Tess Gerritsen fan, don't bother with this book, you will be very disappointed.

    "Who knew..."

    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.

    "A fun read"

    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.

    "Not like her later novels, this is simple"

    Love the later novels, this is more romance than I like. Too simple for me, not a thriller or intriguing as her other or later novels, that I give high marks.

    "Not what I expected"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book is more of a romance novel than a mystery. Don't expect a Rizzoli and Isles style mystery. The essential elements of a good mystery are here but the book really revolves around relationship developing between the two main characters.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tess Gerritsen again?

    Yes.


    What about Montana Chase’s performance did you like?

    The performance is fine and not an issue.

    "Worst Tess Gerritsen EVER written....DID she write"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Totally predictable, no backbone to any of the characters and if I had not listened to so many books by Tess Gerritsen and this were my first one.....it would DEFINITELY be my last. I can't believe that she actually wrote this. Characters have no substance...plot is any that a sixth grader could write.....(and that's not being complimentary to sixth graders)
    AWFUL! Would LOVE to have my money back on this one!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Flat, no emotion....might as well have been reading a cookbook.


    What character would you cut from Keeper of the Bride?

    The question should be which character would I KEEP


    Any additional comments?

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY! I'M a huge fan of Gerritsen...but what a disappointment.

    "fast paced worth listening to"

    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.

    What did you love best about Keeper of the Bride?

    The story.


    Any additional comments?

    Story
    "A bit disappointed"
    What did you like best about Keeper of the Bride? What did you like least?

    The storyline had some promise, but it seemed to be mingled with a sappy love story that overwhelmed the story line at times. There was also some fairly unbelievable behavior, like how people in the story react to death, betrayal, etc., and this detracted from the story and caused confusion about the characters.


    Has Keeper of the Bride turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I will watch for reviews about this kind of suspense/romance style of storyline in the future (I think I saw one before I downloaded this book on my phone).


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    More realistic interactions between the two main characters. Too much of the romantic aspect was highly predictable and unnecessary. This part of the storyline was not believeable and made me tune out on several sections. For instance, would a veteran cop who (in the beginning) barely knows this woman really insult her mother and comment on how badly she raised her daughter?

    "My least favorite Tess Gerritsen"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Compared to other TG books, this plot was thin and hard to believe. Overall - disappointing.
