Remember that one time where I was obsessed with the Rizzoli and Isles series by my favourite author of all time Tess Gerritsen?
I know you do because I talk about them ALL. THE. TIME.
Sorry not sorry.
After hoarding them on my bookshelf for nearly a year, I was able to binge read all remaining books in the series last month in preparation for the newest release, I Know A Secret (which I reviewed here with my CJS reads counterparts).
I don’t even need to go over the fact that I believe this fast-paced stories are well written and filled with twists and turns because that is a given. And, I will say one thing for sure, I feel like this series is getting better and better. Each installment is better than the last.

When #cjsreads is choosing titles for our upcoming months, we usually decide together on titles. It is easier that way. The only general rule we try to stick by is to avoid any novels that are deep into a series; it makes sense for our sanity. However, when I discovered that I Know A Secret, the twelfth novel in the Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen, was coming out this summer, I begged and forcefully pushed my friends to read this book asked kindly and, since they are nice, Chandra and Jessica obliged. Am I glad they did!
I’ve mentioned about a bajillion times on my blog how much of a Gerritsen fan I am, especially in regards to her Rizzoli and Isles series. I picked up the fifth book in the series randomly last summer, binge read it and ended up going back and devouring the first nine in the series before deciding to pace myself. Kick ass female leads are pretty much my favourite and Gerritsen has created two brilliant characters in these novels; downright addicting, they are!!
The newest installment is no exception. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. Gerritsen is a master storyteller and this is consistently made clear in her novels. From the rich character backgrounds to the fast-paced, dark, suspenseful plots, she leaves no stone unturned and weaves the story brilliantly. In fact, I find the series gets better with age! This novel is a highlight in the series!!
If you are a crime lover that has yet to dive into this series, you are seriously missing out! I urge you to go and check out The Surgeon (the first in the series), I promise, it does not disappoint!!! You can absolutely read this as a standalone, but trust me, you will want to go back and read the rest of the series anyways!!
Thanks to the author and the publisher for a copy of this novel; it was my pleasure to provide an honest review.
Keep reading to see what Chandra and Jessica thought of this one…or if they regretted listening to my intense book recommendation. Yikes.
