My second J.D Robb book - I really like this series. Easy read and fast pace - love the relationship between Eve and Roake
I am in my late twenties, a commuter, a romantic, & am loving life.
This book is the second in the series - and I am reading them in order. It was just as enjoyable as the first, and I enjoyed getting to know the characters I met in the first book. The sexiness from the first book for sure carries over to this one... the chemistry between the main characters is definitely still there.
The 'who-done-it' part of the book was more transparent than in book one, however. I had the mystery figured out by the early middle of the book... then it was just a waiting game until Eve figured it out.
Enjoyable, though. I'll be moving on through the series - because I'd like to see what happens after this book's surprise ending.
I purchased the first 8 books in this series because I got a great price. I thought they were mysteries - I didn't realize there would be so much corny romance. I will continue to listen because the stories are ok, I'll just keep fast forwarding through the supposedly "steamy" sex.
I wouldn't buy a book at full price. I will listen to the ones I have already purchased.
Overly dramatic and she makes the main character seem really hostile - I think this is why I dislike her so much.
The Likeness, Tana French
This is a seriously boring, poorly written, predictable story. I'm surprised at all the positive reviews.
Say Hello to the characters you will come to love. Enjoying the character development as the books proceed adds immeasurably to the enjoyment. Read the series in order if at all possible. You won't regret it. And it is Impossible to believe that one woman provides all the narration. I honestly forget I'm not listening to multiple people!
I love this narrator! She is excellent. As for the story, it's good. The plot was a little bit predictable in some places, and very suspenseful in others! It's a good listen if you like some mystery, murder and a bit of unbelievable romance. It's a good listen.

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.
