    After a tip from a reporter, Eve Dallas finds the body of a young woman in a Delancey Street dumpster. Just hours before, the news station had mysteriously received a portfolio of professional portraits of the woman. The photos seemed to be nothing out of the ordinary for any pretty young woman starting a modeling career. Except that she wasn't a model. And that these photos were taken after she had been murdered. Now Dallas is on the trail of a killer who's a perfectionist and an artist. He carefully observes and records his victim's every move.

    Story

    This book was one of my favorites in the series.

    Roarke finally learns the entire back story with his mother and father, and it was written so beautifully that you wanted to reach into the book and give him a hug. I loved how Eve reacted as well, it was all so natural.

    You can tell that Eve and Roarke are both growing in their marriage.

    As for the murder, I thought the perpetrator came out of nowhere, though it was interesting to see a killer who really, truly thought he was doing something okay. He wasn't mean about it, just crazy. The action at the end really had me holding my breath, but of course everything turns out alright.

    P.S. :Love the narrator! Susan IS the voice of Eve to me.

    Technology has advanced in 2060 New York City, but childbirth has been the same since the beginning of time. And despite the brutal double homicide on Lieutenant Eve Dallas' caseload, she has to be there for her pregnant friend, Mavis, even if it means throwing the dreaded baby shower. But Mavis needs an even bigger favor now. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms-to-be in her class, has gone missing, just days before her due date.

    Story

    The crimes being done behind the scenes to the women was truly horrifying, especially for any mothers out there, but it was overshadowed by how hilarious the scenes with Eve and pregnant Mavis, especially when they were going into labor. I've never laughed so hard in this series!

    Number 12 is an urban legend in 2060 New York City. The hot club in the 1960s, it is now reported to be haunted...and cursed. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called there to investigate the apparent murder of Radcliff Hopkins, its new owner and the grandson of the man who made Number 12 a cultural icon.

    I do not really understand why there are such negative reviews for this one: I found it really enjoyable.

    There were supernatural elements to it, but that was kind of the point; and seeing Eve react to them was at times hilarious.

    Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She's got no problem dealing with a holiday reveler in a red suit who plunges 37 stories and gives new meaning to the term "sidewalk Santa". But when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows up, it's all Eve can do to hold it together.

    Yet another one that really puts things together. I, for one, did not see through it to the true villain until the end.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    Story

    I loved how normal (well, for apocalyptic fiction) the world was. The protagonist did the things that seemed normal, and it didn't always work out, which is how the real world works.

    Very fun to listen to, and made me want to get the next in the series.

    New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her partner Peabody enter the hallowed halls of the Wilfred B. Icove Center for Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery on a case. A hugely popular vid star has been beaten to a bloody pulp - and has killed her attacker in the process. After a post-op interview, Dallas and Peabody confirm for themselves that it's a clear-cut case of self-defense.

    In the end, you can't always save everyone.

    This is another great addition to the series. As a mom, the end really hit me. I won't say more, so I don't spoil it, but this one tugs at the heart strings.

    From a mystery standpoint, I figured it out about 3/4 the way through. I enjoyed listening to the whole thing, and as usual the narrator is 5 stars!

    No affairs. No criminal connections. No DNA. No clues. Eve Dallas may be the best cop in the city - not to mention having the lavish resources of her husband Roarke at her disposal - but the Swisher case has her baffled. The family members were murdered in their beds with brutal, military precision.

    Another great installment in the series! I especially love the interaction with the side characters, and Eve's reaction to having a kid! Being a mother myself, the way she treats the young girl is both horrifying and hilarious and so in-character for Eve.

    Really shows that Eve and Roarke aren't quite ready to have kids of their own yet.

    On one of the city's hottest nights, New York Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas is sent to Central Park - and into a hellish new investigation. The victim is found on the rocks, just above the still, dark water of The Lake in the park. Around her neck is a single red ribbon. Her hands are posed, as if in prayer. But it is the eyes - removed with such precision, as if done by the careful hand of a surgeon - that have Dallas most alarmed.

    At this point, if youre going through the series, you're falling into the rote process. This one was still interesting, especially with the visions aspect of it: and I honestly, did not see the ending coming. Kind of whacked me, and I was like, what? Had to rewind and listen again to get it all.

    Another good one in the series!

    Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law.

    Story

    This will be the first one I have not given a full five stars.

    The Nora Roberts Story: Was dull, and uninteresting. I found myself spacing out a lot. The man was alright, I suppose, and the woman was just...typcial. And whiny, to me. The best character was Big Jack himself, and he only had a few scenes. The villain was just too... obviously villainous! Very little depth. A kind of, thisis what you see, this is what you get.

    Now, the J.D. Robb story: was awesome, as usual.

    Bottom Line: If you don't care about the back story (and don't really need it), I would just buy Big Jack. If, however, you are using a credit, just get them both and try it out, but don't get your hopes up much.

    Reva Ewing, a former member of the Secret Service, a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises, is a prime suspect in a double homicide. She had every reason to want to kill her husband, the renowned artist Blair Bissel. Not only was he having an affair, he was having it with her best friend. But Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who's on the case, believes Reva is innocent.

    I have to say, the most interesting books are the ones were Roarke and Eve have difficulties.

    As it is, I don't agree with Eve's opinion here, more on Roarke's side, but I can see why she felt the way she did, and it is in character. That Roarke was willing to give in really show how much he loves her and values her opinion.

    The perfect man. :D
