View our feature on J.D. Robb’s Eve Dallas series. Eve Dallas has a grisly double homicide to solve when two young lovers—both employees of the same prestigious accounting firm—are brutally killed on the same night. It doesn't leave Eve a lot of leftover time to put together a baby shower for her buddy Mavis, but that's supposedly what friends are for. Now Mavis needs another favor. Tandy Willowby, one of the moms-to-be in Mavis's birthing class, didn't show up for the shower. A recent emigrant from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family—and she was really looking forward to the party. And when Eve enters Tandy's apartment and finds a gift for Mavis's shower wrapped and ready on the table—and a packed bag for the hospital still on the floor next to it—tingling runs up and down her spine. Normally, such a case would be turned over to Missing Persons. But Mavis wants no one else on the job but Eve—and Eve can't say no. She'll have to track Tandy down while simultaneously unearthing the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city's richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against this particularly vicious killer. Luckily, her multimillionaire husband Roarke's expertise comes in handy with the number crunching. But as he mines the crucial data that will break the case wide open, Eve faces an all too real danger in the world of flesh and blood.

Her best friend is about to give birth and Eve is supposed to be there, which to her is one of the worst nightmares (and she knows nightmares), she's dealing with a double homicide connected to one of the most prominent financial firms in the city,...

4.0 Born in Death (In Death #23)
I really enjoyed this installment! I liked how much Eve was pushed out of her comfort zone and had to change tactics when searching for a missing person, rather than hunting down a murderer. I also liked seeing her discomfiture at Mavis giving birth! That added an element of humor to the story that ...

3.5 Three things on it
First, to borrow from Baxter too: "Coincidences are hooey" Second: I feel like I'm watching a half-season series. Whenever the case is so-so, the interpersonal can more than pick up the slack. Third: the whole baby thing carried me in laughter. There were some touching too “Hello, my baby. He...

4.0 Born in Death [J.D. Robb]
I'm still a little stuck on Tandy's disappearance and the main case (the murders of a young couple who seemed to have no enemies) being connected. I'm not sure how useful this review is going to be, since I've already started on Innocent in Death and I finished this book yesterday. The layers of ...
