5 of 5 stars
Book 2 in the In Death series
Genre(s): Romance, Mystery
In the second of this futuristic mystery series, protagonist New York police Lieutenant Eve Dallas looks for a serial killer of prominent career women. Eve tenaciously follows the clues whether they imperil her romantic relationship with a millionaire or her beloved job. Truth and justice are the goals she works resolutely toward and that lead her finally to solve the case, save the life of a friend, and command the respect of her tall, dark, handsome lover.
LOVED this book! Can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this book. Since this is the second book of the series, JD Robb takes off right from the start. The crime story and love story were more much more developed than Naked in Death, and it was awesome.
Eve is thrown into another murder case, and this one leads right to her front door. She can link herself to the other women being murdered and puts herself on the news as bait. The only thing I did not like about this story was how Roarke is always tied to every one of Eve’s cases. I mean, come on, what are the odds!
We get to see more of a glimpse into Eve’s past… but just enough to keep you frustrated to read the next book (which of course I will!).
Eve finally admits to herself (and Roarke!) that she is in love with him. And I must admit that I love the dynamic of their relationship. Robb created a complicated, aggressive, frustrating, passionate and extremely refreshing to read. There are not many relationships in books that have captivated me the way Eve’s and Roarke’s have.
And that scene when they go to Mexico so Eve can relax? *fans self* Wow. Can I get me some of that?
A definite recommend, and I cannot wait to read the next book.
