A Devoted Jesse Stone Fan
on October 6, 2012
I have enjoyed reading and watching all of the Jesse Stone books and movies, several times over on all of them. But, this latest book just leaves me flat. I almost did not finish it but since I paid for it I forced my way thru it. Somehow there were times when I thought I was reading about someone other than Jesse Stone. The interaction between Jesse and the young girl that refused to stop using her cell phone while driving, while not a very important part of the main plot, was puzzling. While Jesse is generally a kind person, his attitude towards this young girl at the end of the book was much too "un-Jesse like" to suit me. The words did not sound like Jesse's words.
However, being a fan of the Jesse Stone books I am sure that I will continue to read any new ones that are released. I will hope that any coming books will stick more to the original Jesse.
