Will have to see if I can find it - good thing I've got a a couple of months :-)


Brenda How did you come up with In their footsteps, Marla?

In Their Footsteps won our recent poll:
http://www.goodreads.com/poll/show/55...

I voted for it on the poll because it's one of the few I haven't read :-)


Brenda Oh I didn't realize there was a poll, I just put my vote in the thread!!! Oops!!

so you nominated a title at least :-) which one did you nominate?


Brenda The Surgeon:)

Okay. I wasn't going to vote for that one :-) but I was debating between Footsteps and Vanish.


Avid Series Reader (msbooties) If I had known there was a poll before it closed, of course I would have voted for Vanish - since I nominated it :-) It's the next book in the series after our current group read. I notice the reviews for In Their Footsteps are mixed...so I'll pass on that one, and hope I see a poll for March group read in time to vote.


Brenda I'll pass on Footsteps too...


Tracy Yeah! I have been waiting for a group read for this one. I haven't read it yet.

My library had In Their Footsteps on audiobook and in print and it is shorter than the average Gerritsen book. I will be reading this soon, but right now I'm reading Body Double :-)


Dustin the wind Crazy little brown owl (dustpancrazy) | 568 comments Mod
I have started reading this. It's a short one so shouldn't take too long :-)

Susan, I have posted a comment in the Mini-Group Read Discussion Forum. Maybe we can set up Vanish as a mini-group read before March. Please click here if you're interested:

"Yeah, I should just settle down on those ten acres in Connecticut. Declare myself Earl of Whatever and grow cucumbers."
-In Their Footsteps, Chapter One

I like the opening lines for Chapter Two:

(view spoiler)

Note: there is really no plot spoiler but it is a whole paragraph so I went ahead an marked it as such :-) The first sentence is "The Eiffel Tower was melting." I liked this because it grabbed my attention :-)

Just finished the book yesterday. :-) Sorry, I could not wait until January.


Brenda Well, that's no good...not setting a good example there DC!! That's the whole idea of a challenge;D


Dustin the wind Crazy little brown owl (dustpancrazy) | 568 comments Mod
Well, I didn't want to get behind like I did with Body Double :-)

Ha! Excuses, excuses!!!!! Now you'll have to re-read it in January! ;)


Dustin the wind Crazy little brown owl (dustpancrazy) | 568 comments Mod
I'm afraid I won't be doing that :-) I've got my Dean Koontz books to read.


Dustin the wind Crazy little brown owl (dustpancrazy) | 568 comments Mod
But I will be reading Vanish in January :-)


Brenda OK...you'll enjoy Vanish...it's really good:)


Dustin the wind Crazy little brown owl (dustpancrazy) | 568 comments Mod
Oh I know :-) I've already read it twice. This will be my third time.
Some of us are reading it as a Mini-Group Read if anyone else wants to join us, please feel welcome. Here is the link to the Discussion Thread:

Glad you like the book so much. I didn't like it quite as much as you, I prefer her newer stand alones & Rizzoli & Isles series :-)

So you're reading Thief of Hearts also - haven't read that one - not in a big hurry to do so either.

When do we start nominating for the next group read title? :-)

I quite liked it actually. Yes it was a bit dated, but the story was good and had a fast pace.


Dustin the wind Crazy little brown owl (dustpancrazy) | 568 comments Mod
Glad you enjoyed it. Of the Tess Gerritsen books I've read it is probably my least favorite - still I gave it four stars - I had to really stretch to give it four stars :-)
