There is no doubt that it is because of the narrator Susan Ericksen that that one becomes so involved in these books.
She makes the characters come to life and makes you feel you are at the scene looking and listening to each as they talk.
She is so good at having a voice for each person as apposed to someone just reading a book to you.
Eve as she is so down to earth.
Every bit of it she is so good.
You have got to see it and experience real drama.
I have read 5 of this series and will be buying all of them
Just started reading Nora Roberts under this pen name, a colleague recommended her. What a great mixture of mystery, suspense and sci-fi. I enjoyed the character Eve. I've already purchased the next five books in the series.
Another great In Death book. Susanne Erickssen does a really good job narrating. The audiobook is actually about thirty minutes shorter, the audible title includes a preview of book three.
I am completely all in with these books! The mysteries are in depth and complex, even if I do figure them out way early. It usually takes something exceptional to pull one over on me, so I can't dock a book because it fails to do so, especially if it's quite well written.
I got the first four books on sale and have inhaled them! It's also comforting to know I have many many more in the series to look forward to!
Eve is a fantastic character. She's tough, kick ass, smart, and she has hints of a troubled past. I like that the author doesn't dump a ton of information on us about her past, she gives tidbits in each book.
She was a great narrator and would listen to her again.
I listen while I walk and this was a good story to hold my attention.
Will be listening to the rest of the series.

Speed Date Review:
At first glance: This is my 2nd go around with JD Robb so it is more like a 2nd chance to fall in love.
First Date: Eve is back on the case in Glory in Death. She is an awesome cop and willing to do whatever it takes to solve the case. I love what a hard-nosed by-the-book cop she can be.
Second Date: I am starting to get the Roarke thing. I mean he gave her a room which just made me melt. I am coming to like them as a couple.
Third Date: What an exhilarating end! I loved how the case worked out and have to say that I am sold!
Narrated by Susan Ericksen /9 hrs and 49 mins
I love Susan's narration. I think her pacing is really spot on and her voice for Eve is perfect. I still don't like her Roarke, it is growing on me :) I will be continuing these on audio!
Dating Status: Considering a relationship
The interaction between Dallas and Rourke
The relationship with Roarke is one to be envied, of course fiction.
