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.
I listen to a book a day just about. I am 49, I love mystery, thriller, true crime. G.Guidall best reader for me.
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.
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.
The performance is fine and not an issue.
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.
