Disappointed

I don't want to come down on a Tess Gerritsen book because I really love this author, but I didn't care as much for this particular title. I had high expectations because I love her "Detective Rizzoli" books, but this wasn't up to that level. It was predictable and many times, unbelievable. I never really got attached to the characters or cared much for the story in general. I still really enjoy Gerritsen and look forward to listening to The Keepsake.

Presumed Guilty

I was disappointed in this book. I usually love reading Tess Gerritsen but this one was not like her usual writings. It was more of a romance novel than her normal page-turner mystery.

Please rerecord with new narrator

I was only able to listen to the book for 5 minutes before the overly dramatic reading grated on my nerves. I would enjoy listening to the book but narrated by a different person.

A Whiny Dependent Female

I am not a big fan of romance novels and it's time I admit and accept this fact. The female character was too whiny and dependent.

not her best

To wishy washy in the back and forth romance. Kinda juvenile reading. I love Tress but a couple of her books do that.
