    Tess Gerritsen writes consistently good books However, for me, the kind of good they are varies depending upon the era they come from Never Say Die and Presumed Guilty both fall into her romantic thriller category, which is my least favourite category for her work Don t get me wrong, they re both great books, but there is far too much of a romantic focus as the category title would suggest.If you re a fan of all of Geritsen s work by that I mean you have read her early nineties stuff and Tess Gerritsen writes consistently good books However, for me, the kind of good they are varies depending upon the era they come from Never Say Die and Presumed Guilty both fall into her romantic thriller category, which is my least favourite category for her work Don t get me wrong, they re both great books, but there is far too much of a romantic focus as the category title would suggest.If you re a fan of all of Geritsen s work by that I mean you have read her early nineties stuff and not just her Rizzoli and Isles books then by all means give these two a try I m sure you ll adore them, as I did However, if you have only read her crime thrillers, be aware that you get something quite different in these books.There is the consistent mystery across all of her books You are always trying to uncover some hidden facts When it comes to her romance thrillers, though, you have a predetermined ending in a number of ways You get the lead male You get the lead female You know they re going to get a happily ever after together It ruins quite a few aspects of the story for me, with attention being focused upon forming a relationship between the two Why does this relationship need to be formed Because we have a consistent main character initial hatred Alone the thriller aspects are wonderful, if not short, but with the romantic aspect you have a tale of old that has been done many times before.Nevertheless, they are still four star books They are weaker four stars than her Rizzoli and Isles books the Rizzoli and Isles books are four stars working towards five, for me, whereas these are four stars with the occasional slip into three star territory mainly through my inability to deal with too much romance at once but they are still four stars.Certainly give them a read if you enjoy Gerritsen

    Decent two book deal of fairly early TG work from the 90s.Never Say Die sees a young women searching for her father, a pilot lost in Vietnam With a strong love story will they won t they and the feel of an old time cold war spy story it is pretty entertaining stuff, if a little predictable.Presumed Guilty begins with a murder and an obvious suspect It wasn t her of course, so she has to clear her name The beautiful ex lover of the powerful murdered man from an old monied family is joined Decent two book deal of fairly early TG work from the 90s.Never Say Die sees a young women searching for her father, a pilot lost in Vietnam With a strong love story will they won t they and the feel of an old time cold war spy story it is pretty entertaining stuff, if a little predictable.Presumed Guilty begins with a murder and an obvious suspect It wasn t her of course, so she has to clear her name The beautiful ex lover of the powerful murdered man from an old monied family is joined by the handsome black sheep in her quest It s a decent story but the characters are rather stereotyped the family patriarch, the small town cop and several other spurned lovers

    Contemporary Romance Was not expecting so but I thoroughly enjoyed both books Light reading but each story had a thrilling plot that kept me wanting to read until finished I thought I was going to read something like risk like and isles, but I thoroughly enjoyed it though not a huge fan of romance novels.

    3.5 starsI always have time for a Gerristen read but these feel weaker than her other works They just didn t grab me as much.
