I am not sure I would listen to these types of books again as they are more for enjoyment. There are too many other books in the world that I want to read/listen to.
There is a tendency to for JD Robb to repeat background information about Eve Dallas in each novel. That gets a bit annoying at times. I also am not overly find of Dr. Mira and her psychoanalysis but I see how it fits into the plot.
I thought the plot was well done and it was not overly obvious who the killer was.
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.
Always after books that read well in the tractor!
I didn't get this for the mystery, really, but because I love Eve and Roarke's relationship, and this did not disappoint! I love them two together! The mystery was like a added bonus, and it was good as well. I didn't figure it out until midway through. Love the ending! Can not wait until book 3!
I have a lot of these books to download now and I am looking forward to downloading them all. The first one I didn't like so much and I suppose it was because I had to get acclamated to the character,Eve, the policewoman. In the first book she was so "hard" and emotionally inaccessible, cold and hard. I couldn't understand how any man especially a rich, fine, one could love someone like this character. Now as I listened to book 2, her character begins to become tender, open even loving to her mate. This is because her character with experience and understanding from her georgeous boyfriend has grown.
And again Susan Ericksen is one of the best narrators I've listened to. She is superb!
Dramatic, intriguing, exciting
This book reminds me of all of the other books in the series. All of them make me want to continue reading about the main character, Eve Dallas.
She really brings all the characters to life.
The different ways the characters showed their love, whether good or bad.
Eve and Crack were a good moment.
Susan is perfect for all the In Death books. Her different voices make me see the faces of the characters more clearly.
Careful what you say
I would recommend this. It flowed and it was just enough characters that it made it easy to follow.
I enjoyed the ending.
Tenacity at it's best
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Great action love the strong women in story Eve is my favorite and the billionaire is my dream guy.
I am an avid reader, but listening to the In Death series read by Susan Ericksen makes it feel like I am in the story.
Eve is my favorite character because she is a strong woman who overcame a horrible childhood. She didn't let the nightmare of her childhood turn her into that kind of adult.
I enjoy listening to Susan reading this series.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Not quite as good as the first but worth a listen. It was a bit to easy to identify the villain too early.
