While i enjoy all of the In Death books and hope to have them all as audio books i would not have purchased this one if i had read it first. Not that by itself it is not a good book, it is just to much like an earlier book in the series. Been there, read it & listened to it already.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
I don't own all of this series, but I do own any that feature Roake &/or anything Irish. Ms Ericksen has the voice and enriches the author's Irish intent. The first 2 chapters will steal your heart and make you want to book tickets for Ireland.
Vengeance in death, will introduce you to Brian Kelly, a sweetheart, he is. e.g. "Lieutenant darling"
JD Robb, AKA Nora Roberts, is one of the few authors who has successfully written a wonderful sci fi/ romance/mystery series. Some books are better than others as there are over 40 now. But book #1, 2, Rapture, Vengeance and this one are my top faves.
As author introduces a new character in the first 10 books, they are hard to skip as author is so clever how she does it. From fat cat "so how are we going to be friends again?", Roake as he feeds the cat bacon, to Sean in this book getting cake. Author is that good.
Note: some of the stories are darker than others, but all have humor and foul language, so if you don't care for that writing style, beware. I have re listened to book #1 as least 3 times and I own over 150 yet to be listened to. So you know that book stays with you as pure entertainment of this series.
I almost literally stumbled onto this series by accident. I looked at a two 4 one sale on Audible. I bought two just to see knowing Nora Roberts is top tier and the genre was a favorite. I got busy and couldn't listen for a few days. Well, Eve had me at once....then I was frantically trying to buy the other 38 before the sale ended ... I am talking last 3 minutes of.... I am listening my way thru the series... which for once is better than reading them... why? Because Susan Erickson is GENIUS!! OMG, she IS Eve Dallas and Rourke and Peabuddy and McNabb.... I almost never read anything twice but I already want to go back and listen again. I know I will. Just try the first book. I couldn't recommend it more.
have all books, need more. the narrator is great with the voices work on military time
a Veteran who loves all.
The love, support, and respect Roark and Eve have for each other and their professions.
I did not know how Eve was going to be able to bring the criminals to justice.
The Conference Room. Eve was briefed her Team on the evidence that she and Peabody had collected.
This book made me laugh. Eve just cannot seem to get the expressions correct. I love her relationship with her friends.
Eve learns what it means to be a friend. She analyzes her relationship with each of her friends and compares their relationship with this case. Eve finds that her friends love and respect her and value their relationship.
Love love love this book and this whole series!!!!! And the narrator makes the character even better then J.D. Robb did on paper!!!!! I can just see the book playing out in my mind!!!!!
What I don't like about this series is it is so addictive! This book was good except it started slow. It picked up about a quarter of the way through and turned out to be really good. But for the books that are not as good, I still want to listen because of the character development. Each book has its own story, but each one builds on the characters so now I have a vested interest. I highly recommend.
