    "Awesome!"

    These books are great! This is my 6th read in this series & I can not imagine any other narrator. Ms Ericksen has become these characters for me. I love the In Death/Eve Dallas series & will keep purchasing them as long as she keeps writing them.

    Story
    "". . . My True Love Gave to Me . . .""

    In the midst of preparations for Christmas 2058, a murderer begins killing people. There is a murder each day, and each corpse is decorated with jewelry depicting a day from the Christmas carol : a partridge in a pear tree, etc. By the time of the 4th murder, it is clear that clients of an exclusive and expensive computer dating service are being targeted.

    Meanwhile, back at the Roark estate, Roark is really getting into the holiday spirit, planning a huge Christmas party, decorating everything in sight, and buying gifts -- many gifts. He has not had a festive holiday since he was a youngster living with Somerset in Dublin. Eve has never had the experience, so she doesn't understand all the fuss. And she has a problem -- what can you give to the richest man on earth? When she finally has an idea, Somerset helps her obtain the gift -- after Eve saved his life, there has been a truce between them for the holiday season. Not that they're friendly, just not so openly hostile.

    As usual with the "In Death " books, the best part is the development of characters and relationships. When the team on the murder case includes McNabb, Peabody protests -- she really dislikes him. Of course, Roark sees and informs Eve that McNabb "is sweet on " Peabody. The relationship between Eve and Peabody has deepened enough to survive a rather serious difference on a personal level. Eve and Roark grow closer and their love deepens and matures as they begin to establish their own personal holiday traditions.

    Once again, Susan Ericksen delivers an excellent performance in her narration. Her familiar and distinctive voices for each of the characters have become old friends.

    I really enjoyed this 7th installment of the Eve Dallas adventures. My only quibble with the story was that the identity of the killer seemed to come out of left field, with very little information to establish a motive or explain a neurosis. That is unusual in this series. Even so, I am eager to read the next book, but will try to wait a bit in order to get full enjoyment from each adventure.

    What made the experience of listening to Holiday in Death the most enjoyable?

    I love all of the In Death books and this is one of my favorites. Susan Ericksen IS the voice of Dallas and Roarke. She was great in the first book and gets better every time. Each character has a distinct and instantly recognizable voice. I can't imagine one of these books without her.

    "Love Eve Dallas"

    I am have listened to books 1 thru 7.5 and am not sick of this story line at all. I love Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her million +dollar husband Roarke. Cannot wait for more. Good thing JD Robb (Nora Roberts) keeps 'em coming!

    Story
    "Pleasantly surprised by Lt. Eve Dallas"

    I didn’t look too closely at the description of “Holliday in Death” when I found it on my sale list, and it wasn’t what I was expecting. I thought I was getting a legal/criminal procedural thriller with a strong sense of place – like Kathy Reich’s forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan series (the basis for television’s “Bones”); Linda Fairstein’s series based New York District Attorney Alex Cooper; or Lincoln Child’s Pendergast series.

    “Holliday in Death” is a legal/criminal procedural thriller, based on a future New York. I was so dismayed when I realized I’d gotten a sci-fi romance criminal mystery thriller, I would have returned the book – but at the time, I was on a long drive with no reliable internet access, and I was stuck. So I listened – and was hooked..

    The main character, Lt. Eve Dallas, is strong, no nonsense, and fun. I like Robb’s technique of not describing her in too much detail, so it’s possible to imagine her how you want her to look. She’s also vulnerable, and needs the people who love her to help her.

    The plot was twisty, and pleasantly unpredictable – and it kept me wondering “Who done it?” until close to the end.

    The narration left me confused – since it was the first J.D. Robb book I’d listened to, I wasn’t sure by the narration if Dallas’ assistant, Peabody, was a person or a droid. The narration of that key character was clipped and mechanical. I’ve discovered when a narration is remembered because it changes a character, it’s not a good narration.

    I don’t see myself ever reading Norah Roberts, the romance writer. That’s a genre I never took to. However, I expect I will listen to more of Norah Roberts writing as J.D. Robb.

    As always the action starts right away but did not find this story as good as the previous ones. I will continue on with the series. The narration continues to be outstanding!
