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 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.
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.
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!
Flat, no emotion....might as well have been reading a cookbook.
The question should be which character would I KEEP
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY! I'M a huge fan of Gerritsen...but what a disappointment.
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.
I felt like the book was not finished. There was a story line left hanging.
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.
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).
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?
Compared to other TG books, this plot was thin and hard to believe. Overall - disappointing.
I enjoy thrillers and mysteries. I find the work of Tess Gerritsen, Anne Perry, Deborah Crombie, & Lisa Scottoline interesting.
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!
