The Bone Garden

Sunday, January 10, 2010

New home owner Julia Hamill loves her new house. That is, until one day she discovers bones in her garden. And not just any kind of bone–human bones, to be exact. And so the quest of the history of the house and the garden, as well as the previous home owners begin.

Although I did enjoy this book very much, I can not help but mention that this is probably my least favorite Tess Gerritsen book.

The plot itself was very interesting; the idea riveting, the characters likable. But all in all, it ended up stumbling into a story and conclusion not so satisfying. Maybe it has to do with the fact that Gerritsen wrote better thrillers before that I felt as if this particular book did not live up to her usual standards.

There are positive things about it though because it still was good. The writing, as usual, is fast-paced. The story itself is fast-paced, not dragging or boring at all.

If somebody picked this book up without having read any other of Gerritsen’s previous books, they might like it and appreciate it more for what it is. If you are already a Gerritsen fan, then this might be your least favorite. Again, not saying it was bad. Just the least “favorite.”
