Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have enjoyed several of Gerritsen's other books, including The Surgeon and The Apprentice, but found this book a little disappointing. The Keeper of the Bride is a fairly good suspense thriller (with a bad title). It is well paced with one or two good twists, although with a slightly less than satisfying conclusion. My main problem with this book, however, is the developing relationship between the two main characters: it reads exactly like a Mills and Boon romance - predictable and cheesey. Although published very recently I wouldn't be surprised if this book was written much earlier on in her career - it reads like a first novel: promising but with underdeveloped potential.

Like Tess Gerritsen's other books "The Surgeon" and "The Apprentice". Keeper of the bride keeps the suspense taught.
This one begins with an abortive wedding with a twist.. When the bride leaves, the church is blown up by a bomb that was set to go off during the ceremony. Here, however, she falls into cliché land with the detective investigating this latest terrorist linked bombing who ends up questioning the bride to be and then finding himself drawn to her(YAWN).
However, despite the clichés, I couldn't put the book down and finished it in one sitting. All in all, not as good as the two previous books, but well worth a read if you have a couple of hours to spare, especially in a departure lounge!

Love romantic novels? Read this book. Love Tess Gerritsen? Love gripping and detailed crime novels? Love the usual Tess gerritsen suspense? Love a book you can't put down? DON'T read this book!!!! This is an early novel by Tess Gerritsen, one of a few recently re-published. They shouldn't have bothered. It lets her down terribly. No real plot, a romance which is obvious from the first pages and really nothing happens. Hard to believe Tess Gerritsen would want this re-published.A poor Mills and Boon, with no substance at all.

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.

Very, very disappointed to say I did not enjoy this book at all. I thought I was reading Karen Rose but at least Karen has a decent murder story going on at the back of the Mills and Book love story. Why have you gone down this road???? Both Bride and Cop were totally pathetic.

As an avid fan Tess Gerritsen it does not fill me with joy to rate this one star.

I have read most of Tess Gerritsen's books. I have to say this sticks in my mind as being one of the most cheesy, ridiculous books so far. Tess, either stick to crime thriller or write Mills and Boon. Bringing the 2 together reads as cheesy and ridiculous. It takes away from the credibility of the entire story and just becomes a predictable romantic novel. I honestly considered not bothering reading any more Tess Gerritsen books after this one but having seen the reviews of the latest Rizzolli one, I will give it one more go. If you like a meaty story with credible characters, don't bother with this.

Very disappointing.
If I wanted to read a Mills and Boon or Harlequin Romance I would have done that.
In my opinion, that is all this is, just a glorified romance novel and not even a good one at that.
