Another great installment in this futuristic series by J.D Robb (aka Nora Roberts)! This time our favorite cop, Eve Dallas, must find a series killer who rapes and murder women and men in Christmas time. I am glad to see that after seven books this series the author continues to give us books with a quality. We still have a lot to learn for our favorite characters and for the futuristic world-building. I was sure that Eve would have a problem with this time of year. I was so right! As a woman with no good memories as a child, her reaction was expected. She is not used to have family and friends and now she has to buy presents for the people she cares about and have a party with her husband! Yes, that makes her uncomfortable. Sometimes she is abrupt and tactless she's saying things in a wrong way. It's good that she understands that she's not right and she apologizes in her own way. In this book, because the case involves rapes, she takes it personal and she pushes herself too much. Some people will call her cold but I don't think it's true. I simply believe that she is afraid to feel. Rightly, if you want my opinion, because the one person that should have been there and take care of her, her father, was a monster who raped her when she was just a little girl. Roarke.... Best husband ever! Really, he's there for her every step of the way. Sometimes it's weird to see him put his own life behind so he can help Eve but his love for her and his need to protect her from herself is obvious. He's still a mystery. Yes, we learn some things for his past but not everything and I am very curious about him. His need to belong and to have a family and make memories it's obvious and sometimes I think that he knows Even better than she knows herself! Peabody is another character that I really like in this series and although she and Eve have some problems in this story, they care for each other a lot. It's easy to see that Peabody feels lonely and that she has not the same mind with Eve and that means that Eve wants to protect her when there is no actual need for protection. Nevertheless, they respect each other and they always find a way to work things out. Also, I like this love/hate relationship between Peabody and McNab. I truly believe that they should give it a try and start a relationship! It would be hilarious! So, this was another great story with very well-written plot that I enjoyed too much! I just love this series!!!

I just love the characters in this series. Their love for each other, sarcasm, and sense of humor always puts a smile on my face. I can't get enough of Eve, Roarke, and Peabody. I love Eve and Roarke's marital relationship, and Eve and Peabody's work relationship. Everytime I read this the author reveals a little more about the characters.

I think this one was one of my favorite cases. Awesome story telling as always and the development of different relationships between the characters is great! I loved the fact that Peabody had some more spotlight here and that we got to see her and McNab together a little more..something's brewing there and I can just feel it. Roarke and Eve have this annoying but amazing habit to put us through this myriad of moods and the ending is just one of the good parts of the book.

Another hit for J.D. Robb!! This is my go to series when im craving something fast paced with action, suspense and romance! If you read any of the books on their own they're good, but if you start at the beginning and work your way down they're terrific!!! Cant wait to read the next one!!
Holiday in Death4 Star...
Holiday in Death4 StarsIn her latest case, Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas is on the trail of a sadistic serial killer who dresses up as Santa and finds his victims at an online dating service. An exciting installment with several red herrings to keep the reader guessing. Eve's complex and prickly nature make her one of those characters that evoke strong reactions in readers. While one cannot help but admire her strength and resilience in overcoming childhood trauma, she does have the unfortunate tendency toward allowing her personal demons to influence her investigative focus, which ultimately leads her down the wrong path. Furthermore, there are times when Eve's harsh words and hurtful actions toward those closest to her can be grating. That said, it is clear that she is slowly coming to understand she is no longer alone in the world and that she needs to let people in. In terms of the murder case, the symbolism associated with the 12 Days of Christmas is entertaining albeit underutilized. The links between the symbols and corresponding victims could have been used to better effect. The secondary characters are wonderful as always. The developing love/hate relationship between Peabody and McNab is a highlight, and it will be interesting to see where this goes (if they don't kill each other first). Overall, the In Death series is engaging, exciting, and entertaining. A definite must for lovers of romance and suspense.
