* AscendedExtra[=/=]EarlyInstallmentWeirdness[=/=]EnsembleDarkhorse: Rizzoli is actually a secondary character in ''The Surgeon'', the first book in the series, while Isles doesn't exist at all, and author Gerritsen had planned to kill her off--the author herself states this is why she's so unlikable--before positive reader feedback changed her mind. Similarly, when Isles makes her first appearance in ''The Apprentice'' (2nd book of the series), she's a minor character until her role enlarges to be almost equal with Rizzoli in most books, or the primary character in several.

* DoubleStandard[=/=]{{Hypocrite}}: In the books the series is based on, [[AdaptationalAttractiveness plain Jane]] is jealous and resentful of beautiful women and contemptuous of any man who is attracted to them--when her partner in the first book falls in love with the lovely Dr. Catherine Cordell, she accuses of him of [[AllMenArePerverts "falling for the same thing every guy falls for - tits and ass"]]. But she conveniently overlooks the fact that she herself has spent the book lusting after him, and in the second book, when she meets the gorgeous FBI agent Gabriel Dean, she falls head over heels for him in seconds. So as a woman (and an average-looking one, at that), it's apparently perfectly okay for ''her'' to fall in love with someone attractive, but when a man does it, [[AllMenArePerverts he's a shallow jerk]].
