In Their Footsteps and Thief of Hears were different than what I'm used to in Tess Gerritsen's books. The only other books I've ready by her were the Jane Rizzole/Maura Isle books, which deal mainly with medical forensic who done it stories, this one wasn't like that at all. It was more of a try at mystery romance I think. I can't say it really succeeded completely, but it was a nice attempt. The stories seemed to move too fast, there was more of a short story feel to it than 2 full novels, which wasn't bad, it just didn't quite hit the mark. None the less, I enjoyed them for what they were, and at the end wasn't disappointed.
In Their Footsteps is basically the first part of the story in which Beryl and Jorden Tavistock unravel the truth about their parents murder, with the help of handsome and clever Richard Wolf....it's not hard to figure out where that story is headed right?
Thief of Hearts is the continuation of the story so that Jorden Tavistock can have his fun too...when he and a female thief are both secretly retrieving things from a third parties house at the same time.
As obvious as it is where both stories lead, they are enjoyable and quick reads, and a good way to kill a couple of hours before bed.
