Publisher's Summary

Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy over rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty. Eve, on the other hand, is more likely to roll her eyes than have stars in them. But she has to admit it’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody - drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K.T. had made an embarrassing scene during dinner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene - and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop.

Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Lacking

What would have made Celebrity in Death better?

There is no excitment and little to no feeling in the new characters and the regulars fell flat. There seemed to be no inspiration just meeting a deadline.

Has Celebrity in Death turned you off from other books in this genre?

I will continue to with this series. I like the base characters and until this book have found the stories great and engaging.

What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

I love the inflection, the tone and the individual cadance Ms Erickson give each person

After 34 books it's hard to be creative

I enjoy Nora Roberts and JD Robb but I am disappointed in the book and the series, it just felt like the same old thing, Peabody was still her silly and comical self, Roarke still hacks into everything and Dallas still saves the day. I know it's not her fault, but I am bored with the same old, stuff with the only difference being who died this time.

Go Dallas! You rock.

This is a very good Eve Dallas story. I didn't figure it out until near the end. The performance was very good and entertaining and the story was first rate. I love some of Peabodys sayings and some of them had me laugh out loud. I highly recommend.

Another Great One!

Loved the latest installment of Eve and the rest. Not as dark as New York to Dallas, so that was nice. Wish we could get more than 2 a year!!

Celebrity celebrates Eve Dallas once again

I've been a big fan of Nora Roberts writing as J.D. Robb from the very first "In Death" novel.

She's chosen over time to make Eve just a little more vulnerable, just a touch softer in her relationship with Rourke, and has added more more dimension to her characters in this novel.

Eve and her partner Delia have grown and have become much more than just a working relationship.

Another great novel in the best detective series out there. Can't wait for the next one.

When are they going to make these novels into either a TV series or movies?

Good but predictable. . . dare I say reliable?

I love this series, you can count on J.D. Robb to weave an entertaining tale (with the exception of some of the short stories she's written for compilations). The thing is, that it is the same formula everytime. Someone is murdered, Eve has interactions with Morris and D--khead. Mavis and Leonardo and sometimes Bella make a cameo. Trina freaks her out and intimidates her with the girly stuff she doesn't get. She deals with Mira and Roarke about her past, or she has nightmares about her parents. She has an awkward or affectionate moment with Feeney. She has snarky, funny moments with Sommerset, Peabody and McNabb. She uses Nadine to trick the killer. The Candy Thief rears its head. There's rough, needy sex and usually affectionate and loving sex. These books are like my favorite pair of jeans. I know what to expect and love them. They make me happy and I've never felt let down. Susan Ericksen does a fantastic job, as usual.

This woman knows how to write. Keeps on doing it!

What did you love best about Celebrity in Death?

I loved everything about this book. The pace was good the storyline was strong and Eve Dallas draws you in!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Celebrity in Death?

When Peabody and her man are sitting at the breakfast table and after the deep discussion about how they feel about one another, and Eve's call for them to come into work, they run off to the bedroom for a quicky!

Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have heard them all to date and they just keep getting better and better!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It makes me laugh because these characters have sense of humor to make them seem more real.

Any additional comments?

Hurry up with the next release, I need my Eve Dallas fix!!!!
