Come on???!!!! The Queen of mystery writing this bit of soft porn??? I was SO disappointed. This book should be a Harlequin Romance and Ms. Gerritsen should have used a pseudonym! In the future I will make sure her book includes Maura Isles and Jane Rizzoli before I buy it! What a letdown!!

This is the first time I have read Tess Gerritsen. I loved both stories in this book.
They kept me glued to my book from the first pages. Good murder plot with a little love thrown in. Clean wording and clean love scenes.
It clearly carried me to the end on my toes. Loved it! Now looking for the next novel from the same author. I cannot get enough.

Duo of two older Tess Gerritsen romantic suspense novels. They do suffer from the usual romantic suspense tropes--like poorly timed romantic interludes--but since that's common to the genre, and they're older books, it's hard to complain too much. The mysteries, however, are well-done and page-turning.
These were obviously from the very early stages of Gerritsen's literary career. The second was a vast improvement over the first and both served their purpose quite well. They were used as a learning process for her and ultimately lead to her current novels. It's nice to know she has developed into the author she is!
Very strange. Does not even seem like Tess' writing. Maybe she needed a break from all of her intrigue.

I loved both of these books. Didn't want either one to end.
Kim Scanlan
A bit different from Gerritsen's later books and pretty predictable.
Not my cup of tea at all. I was expecting a murder mystery, and what I got was more like a Harlequin romance. I did finish the first one, which wasn't very long, to find out who dunnit, and I was surprised. But decided to pass on the second one. No more of this author for me.
Presumed Guilty: Enjoyed the storyline and two main characters. Story kept me guessing and wanting to find out whodunit until the end.
Keeper of the Bride: good storyline and characters. Kept me reading. [library ebook]
I liked these better than the other two books of hers I read recently. Both had engaging characters, and both had exciting conclusions. Again, a cheesy love scene didn't do anything for me.
I read a review that said that they had figured out who was doing the killing right away. I however did not know in Presumed Guilty until the very end.

I enjoyed both of these books.
not what I was expecting. Borrowed BPL book and didn't realize it was more romance than murder/mystery. Was at least a quick read.

What was Tess Gerritsen think of? The Surgeon is one of the scariest books I've ever read but this is like bad Barbara Cartland.
Started out a little slow then got going fast. Liked the ends of both stories.
Both were classic Gerritsen with a dash of romance. I liked Keeper of the Bride, especially.
Cindy Kester
Two more titles by one of my favorite authors. Fast read that didn't let me down.
It was a pretty good book. Endings were predictable but still enjoyable.
Joyce McKune
Both books were really good. Easy to read and follow.
Kristen Mckinney
Definitely not one of her best works. A bit lame.
S.J. Hitchcock
Loved this book, and could not put it down.
Starr Gardinier
Read Keeper of the Bride only.
Kristen Doherty
two great stories with happy endings
Predictable, but a quick read.
Presumed Guitly was a good book.
Carol Hurtig

“Günün birinde ben de böyle bir şey yapacağım,” dedi.
”Nasıl bir şey?” diye sordum.
”Büyük bir şey.Dünyayı değiştirecek bir şey.”

Ona bunu çoktan yaptığını söylemek istedim.Varlığının dünyayı daha aydınlık bir yer haline getirdiğini.Ona yanındayken nefes almayı zor bela hatırlayabildiğimi söylemek istedim.Ama bunun yerine salıncaktan atladım ve ”Her neyse gitmem gerek,” dedim.”
