5 out of 5 for suspense, 1 out of 5 for cheesey romance!
on 15 January 2004
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.
