No sure. The "In-death" series is my favorite and all installments including the novella's are excellent.
The plot and sub-plots and that the story moves quickly. Lots of emotion in this one!
I have listened to Susan almost thru the entire series. I love how she has each main, secondary and guest voices down to a science. You can always tell who's speaking. The series (audio) would be nothing without her.
Laugh out loud funny!
I would have given this one 5 stars because I was laughing out loud due to the reactions of birthing classes Eve and Roarke attended for Mavis! This really is 4 1/2 stars, what was missing for me was more of Dr. Mira. She played a very small part in this and I like the way she handles Eve, almost as good as Roarke. Not only was this installment (#23) laugh out loud but it was awesome to see Roarke actually lose his cool to the degree of rage. It's funny that he got so pissed with the NYPSD for covering their butts even though he knew that they had every right to do so. It was disturbing to see Eve almost lose her cool and start to cry. I didn't think she could but that just shows how much she loves Roarke and treasures their relationship. Summerset was cool and controlled until Mavis asked him for a particular favor, that part almost had me in tears!
A double murder and a missing person, WOW, Eve really had a lot on her plate this time around. Very interesting plot line and the story moved pretty quickly, never a dull moment. Babies, babies and more babies. I loved that Eve had to give the shower but even gladder (?) that Peabody took over. (LOL) I will definitely read this one again!
a lover of books and finer things
Loved how the plots intersect. The best was the personal interaction of the characters and how life is changing for all of them. This one had me laughing at the end. Roarke pushing Eve was hilarious and him promising not to go to Mexico. LOL!
Another episode with Eve and Roarke and the gang. And this time with death there is a little new life to mix in with it all. Murder, fraud, a baby snatching ring all combine to give Eve and her team something to get their teeth into. While I could see that possibly the two cases could be related before it was shown it didn't matter. As usual the narrator did a fabulous job. No one else could ever narrate these books!
You could not predict the finish! I liked 2 story lines at once even though some characters were very unpredictable. Well written and exciting! I love Eve and Roark. Please continue their story!!
This is another winner!! It was good to have a book focus on Mavis Freestone. JD Robb was able to take a gut wrenching and interweave comic relief. Highly recommended!
I'm a big fan of this series and with a few exceptions, every book has been good and well worth the read. This one had one of best story lines of any I've read so far and didn't go into Eve's childhood too deeply.
I loved this book because of the mix of mystery and laughter. So touching to hear the parts where Eve connects to her 'softer' side with Mavis.
The end..don't want to give it away but so touching.
Susan does such a good job portraying the characters!!
It made me laugh and cry and literally gave me goosebumps at certain touching moments.
Just Love this book. The story is great, per usual, and we finally get to meet Bella.
I do not think the narration could be any better. Susan Erickson has these characters pinned.great story, lots of fun.
