Welcome to Coffee Pot Reviews! These are short and sweet reviews done in the length of time it takes my coffee pot to brew! Today I am sharing vintage Tess Gerritsen with a romantic suspense novel called Keeper of the Bride.
Before Tess Gerristen began writing the psychological suspense thrillers that make me squeal she wrote romantic suspense with Harlequin, since her success with the Rizzoli & Isles series they have reissued and updated them. Keeper of the Bride is a classic romantic suspense featuring bomb squad Detective Sam Navarro and registered nurse Nina Cormier. Nina has the worst day ever, and someone wants her dead. Why? Detective Navarro intends to find out, and the tale that unfolds is an intense who-dun-it. The mystery was clever, and I identified with Nina and Sam. They are clearly attracted to one another, and try to avoid it and be reasonable, but fate has other plans. The relationship was insta-love in nature but felt genuine, and I was rooting for them. The pacing was intense, and I enjoyed the action-packed ride. While Keeper of the Bride is predictable and not as complex as Gerritsen’s future novels, it was a pleasurable read.
