This is the first Tess Gerritsen book that I have read, and while I will look out for more books by her, I did feel that on the whole 'Keeper of the Bride' was slightly rushed.
We are instantly thrown into the throes of the story and from the first page the reader is left guessing just what is really going on. However, for me, I felt that the entire story was told in too fast a pace, which is something I rarely say, as I like fast-paced stories rather than ones just plod along. I just didn't feel that the pace quite worked with this one, and it could have done with being padded out slightly more.
Overall, the story is quite good, and while not particularly edge-of-your-seat stuff, it did make me want to read on and discover the real reasons behind what was going on in the main character's Nina's life and why. The ending of the book for me was a little disappointing, as it felt quite abrupt, so again I would say this is where the book could have done with being lengthened out slightly.
Keeper of the Bride is one of Tess's earlier novels (first published in 1996) so, while it is a good effort, I am hoping that her later works will be much more thrilling and full suspense.
