Keeper of the Bride / Whistleblower Reviews
Tess Gerritsen writes consistently good books. However, for me, the kind of good they are varies depending upon the era they come from. Keeper of the Bride and Whistleblower both fall into her romantic thriller category, which is my least favourite category for her work. Don’t get me wrong, they’re both great books, but there is far too much of a romantic focus (as the category title would suggest).If you’re a fan of all of Geritsen’s work – by that I mean you have read her nineties stuff and not just her Rizzoli and Isles books – then by all means give these two a try. I’m sure you’ll adore them, as I did. However, if you have only read her crime thrillers, be aware that you get something quite different in these books.There is the consistent mystery across all of her books. You are always trying to uncover some hidden facts. When it comes to her romance thrillers, though, you have a predetermined ending in a number of ways. You get the lead male. You get the lead female. You know they’re going to get a happily ever after – together. It ruins quite a few aspects of the story for me, with attention being focused upon forming a relationship between the two. Why does this relationship need to be formed? Because we have the drama of a relationship that may not work out. Alone the thriller aspects are wonderful, if not short, but with the romantic aspect you have a tale of old that has been done many times before.Nevertheless, they are still four star books. They are weaker four stars than her Rizzoli and Isles books – the Rizzoli and Isles books are four stars working towards five, for me, whereas these are four stars with the occasional slip into three star territory (mainly through my inability to deal with too much romance at once) – but they are still four stars.Certainly give them a read if you enjoy Gerritsen.
Both books very average read, nothing to write home about.
Another great book by Tess Gerritson
