Keeper Of The Bride By Tess Gerritsen…….Always Exciting!

When I am looking for an entertaining audio book, I know that I can always depend on Tess Gerritsen. Her mysteries are never boring and Keeper of the Bride is no exception!

What is the worst thing that can happen to a bride? Yes, you guessed it!  Nina Cormier was left standing at the altar. Just minutes before she was to walk down the aisle the best man handed her the note:


                                                                 I need time to think about this. I’m sorry, I  

                                                                 really am. I’m leaving town for a few days. I’ll

                                                                 call  you.


How could Robert do this to her… and why? They had been planning this wedding for months. If he was having second thoughts he had plenty of time to let her know. Nina was devastated! And then to make matters worse, as she sat crying in the minister’s car, mascara running down her face, the church exploded right before her eyes. If the wedding had not been canceled she could not even imagine what would have happened to her and her guests! The icing on the wedding cake was when later in the day as she was driving home to lick her wounds someone tried to force her car off the road. Clearly this was not a coincidence. Someone wanted Nina dead! But why? She had no enemies. Nina was an ER nurse. She prided herself on being a good person.

This was not the first bombing in Portland and Detective Sam Navarro was working the case. He was handsome and unattached but he was also a professional and knew better than to get involved with the “damsel in distress”. He was determined to keep Nina safe and find out who was behind the bombings and why!

Keeper of the Bride is an easy, fun read and an entertaining audio book. If you enjoy a mystery with a little romance thrown in you will enjoy Keeper of the Bride. I sure did!

Update…I am STILL reading IQ84!



  1. I haven’t read/listened to this one yet – I’ve been working through the Rizzoli and Isles series this year – stand-alones are next year I think

    • Hi Dee! I just happened to pick this one up because it was sitting there in front of me in the library. I have read several of the Rizzoli and Isles books in no particular order. Gerritsen’s books are good audio books…..entertaining and suspenseful yet not too complicated to listen to while driving, cooking, cleaning…you name it!

  2. I love Tess Greeitsens books. I have never listened to an audio book but would like to try it out. I do not know if my library has play aways. I do not remember seeing them.
