I wasn‘t as emotionally invested in the main characters as I would have liked, but I WAS invested in whodunit. The villain was sufficiently creepy to keep me reading. Honestly, the first book in a series can sometimes be problematic. The author hasn‘t quite gained their sea legs. I will definitely be giving the rest of the series a go. If anything, it‘s helping me get out of this Book Distraction Syndrome/slump BS. 😂🤣

Bookzombie I really like this series. It‘s been so long since I read the first, but you definitely get more invested in the characters with each book. 3w
AshleyHoss820 @Bookzombie I was certain that was going to be the case, so I definitely want to keep reading! First books tend to be a set-up book and the characters get more fleshed out as the series goes along. That‘s the hope anyway, right? 😊 I really did enjoy the story and the writing! 3w

While I‘m in Boston might pop in and see Rizzoli and Isles, but need to ensure I don‘t become a victim of The Surgeon or any of the other killers! A great series!

#13books13weeks Book 3! The first of the Rizzoli and Isles series sans Maura Isles. This really introduces Jane Rizzoli and starts to develop her character. The mystery is well laid out and although there aren‘t a lot of clues to the real culprit (at least that I noticed). An intense last couple of chapters wrapped things up nicely. Overall a good start to the series.

JoScho I really enjoy this series. 12mo
Mollyanna @JoScho I‘m looking forward to the rest of the series. If it maintains, its quite fast paced. 12mo

1. Rizzoli and Isles, Women‘s Murder Club, Gretchen Lowell and Archie Sheridan series 💔
2. Ugh this one is so hard! Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Six Feet Under, Golden Girls
3. Never ever
4. I have nothing fancy planned-maybe some takeout
5. Does the Sports section of the paper count?

I think I found Patricia Cornwell replacement 😍(her last 4 books were very bad 😭). This book is a page turner with believable characters and great plot. I haven't seen the TV show yet. I probably will. #book #bookaholic #booklovers #ler #leitura #leitora #reading #instabook #instaread #instabooks #bookstagram #litsy #booklover #readingabook #vero #Sha2018

4/5⭐️ - This book started out a little slow for me. You could tell the author did her research to make the book more realistic and believable but for me it didn‘t really pick up until we found out who the murderer was and what his motivation was. But defiantly a murder mystery/suspenseful thriller!

Johanna414 I read the first few books in this series when I was in college and loved them- I‘ve always intended to go back and read the rest! 1y

Perfect vacation read! Full of suspense, but not too heavy. I watched the Rizzoli and Isles TV show because I have a girl crush on Angie Harmon. I've wanted to try the books for awhile. Way more serious tone than the show, I'll probably read them all if they don't get repetitive.

Women are raped and killed in their 🏠. Organ is missing. The ‘trophy‘ that the killer took. But 1 managed to escape. 1 managed to kill the psycho before he took her. But now, similar killing is sighted. Someone is mimicking the killings. Or he‘s back to finish the survivor?? #thriller #series #suspense My 1st read by this author. A very detailed book with Moore and Cordell as the main. Rizzoli seems to be the secondary character.

Hmmmm... I'm not sure. It was a compulsive read. Gerritsen's characters aren't cardboard at all. There's real depth here, but it's so "women in peril." It never feels quite gratuitous, but it gets close. It's kinda nice to see the crusty, unlikeable cop be a woman. And Jane Rizzoli is not a pleasant woman. It's also interesting that it's the first in the Rizzoli and Isles series, but there's no Isles yet.

This is one I bailed on a couple years ago, simply because it freaked me out. A serial killer who breaks into the homes of single women and pretty much butchers them. Hit a little too close to home. #SleepWiththeLightsOn #SplashIntoSummerReads

#Characters2017 #day14 #QueenBee Maura Isles is definitely a Queen Bee. Known by the Boston PD as the Queen Of Death, she's dark, mysterious, beautiful & aloof. Completely different than the TV Maura, she's had a tough time & can only count on Jane Rizzoli as a friend. But in her morgue, she's the Queen of all she surveys.

Do you like your thrillers on the graphic and gruesome side? Do you like forensics work that involves a lot of talk about hair? Then this is the book for you. It's page turnery. There's a serial killer. There's a female detective who has to deal with misogyny on the job. What more do you want? #crimefiction

Loved her style! Lots of suspense, medical lingo and realistic tension, with grey's anatomy-type short scenes to break the gruesome story. My only issue was the soon-to-be heroine, Rizzoli, who was too masculine, uptight and uncomfortable being a woman. Wonder why no one can nail a smart AND feminine powerful woman. Let's see if I can pull it off :)

Seemed a little confused about which detective was supposed to be the focus of the story. But it was otherwise very engaging though graphic and horrifying. Interested in the rest of the series if only to find out where/when Isles comes along.

It was a reasonably compelling story, fairly typical of the genre, but the characters didn't particularly grab me. That said, there was enough potential for me to put the next in the series on hold.
