Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Good, great, grand! These books always keep me guessing and this one was no different! The perfect blend of mystery, suspense, and romance!
Definitely Dallas. Susan got the tone just right - exactly as I imagined her.
Have you been naughty, or nice?
If you are a fan of this series, you will enjoy this audiobook!
I enjoyed this mystery. The plot line was better than most.. I did figure out who-did-it.. well, mostly about 2/3 through the book.. but, still wasn't 100% sure!
Ms. Dallas, et al. appeared to me a bit more realistic in this installment, except for Roarke who is just not a real man, in my humble opinion! I wish, I could get dressed for a party in 5 minutes!! I liked the bit about the couple making their own holiday traditions. It was rather poignant.
Ms Robb used more of her characters here, and that was great. We got to know a bit more about them.
The narration was great, as usual!
Yes, this installment was worth the credit.
Yes, Good series
Shows how Dallas gets involved with her growing number of friends.
I have onlly heard Susan Ericksen on Death Series by J.D. Robb
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Excellent story line and as always a perfect narration. Just love this series. Thumbs up all round.
Yes, it was enjoyable
Eve and the whole issue of Christmas
She shines in all her performances.
When Eve tries to apologize to Peabody.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
This was quite the story. It kept me listening to the end.
The development of the characters is fabulous since I listened to the last half of the series first and I am now learning how the characters met and got together. Sometimes I have to laugh.
I enjoy listening to the whole series many times over. I enjoy listening to the progression of the characters and the story line. This particular book is a great addition because it makes Eve confront pieces of her past that she's just remembering.
I liked that Eve was wrong about the suspects. She let her personal stuff get in the way of the case and as a result went down the wrong path. I also enjoyed that Eve and Peabody got into a little spat this time. Finally - of course the holidays brought a lot to the story. Eve trying to find all the right gifts for the new people in her life was fantastic.
Susan Ericksen draws the emotions out of the book that you wouldn't necessarily get reading it for yourself. you can simply close your eyes - relax and let it all in.
That's actually one thing that I didn't get out of this book. I didn't have any extremes in the book... just a good book all the way around without much in the way of extremes.
McNabb---he's coming into his own, his character is becoming more developed. He's part of the gang.
Yes. It's comparable to the others in this series. She does a good job.
I have listened to or read 27 books. Some already twice. I can not wait to finish all the books then I will b wanting more. I love all the characters in the book love the way it all goes together. I can't wait to see what everyone is up to now.
Lt. Eve Dallas has already lost her holiday cheer--she simply has no idea what to buy her gorgeous, richer-than-Croesus husband, Roarke. What is a woman to buy the man who has absolute everything? However, this problem pales in comparison when bodies begin showing up around the city and apparently--Santa is the killer! Can Eve find the serial killer before everyone's holiday spirit suffers a permanent set-back?
After the intensity of the previous "In Death" installment, this volume is an enjoyable, slightly more light-heated episode in the lives of Eve and Roarke and their close friends, as is fitting with the holiday theme. The murder mystery remains as intriguing as ever, but more attention falls to Eve's relationships--particularly her dance with Roarke as they develop a rhythm as husband and wife, and her blossoming friendships with Peabody and Nadine.
An enjoyable story and a thorough pleasure to listen to as Susan Ericksen continues on as narrator in this series.
