Three-star review of Choose Me by Tess Gerritsen and Gary Braver
This is a well-written murder mystery and a quick read. However, I had trouble with the idea of a college student obsessively seducing her professor. It didn’t seem to flow from the character as she was earlier described: a poor kid who worked hard to get into college to be with her high school sweetheart, who then becomes obsessed with the boy when he breaks up with her. All the misdirection was obvious. The little we learned about Frankie Loomis, the policewoman in charge of the investigation of the murder, was interesting and I could see how it could affect how she looked at the case. The overweight kid who was obsessed with the murder victim was a cliché at best. I’ve enjoyed other Gerritsen’s books much more than this one.
