Changes made to the TV show

  • The most notable/confusing difference after reading the books is that they kind of switched the appearance of the characters. Maura is depicted as tall, lean, rather cream faced with black hair in the books. And Jane is small and more Italian looking... which is opposed to the appearance of the characters in the series.
  • One of the most notable difference of the show from the books is the relationship between Jane Rizzoli & Maura Isles. In the show, they are depicted as very close best friends, while in the books, their connection is merely professional.
