View our feature on J.D. Robb’s Eve Dallas series. Eve Dallas is one tough cop. It should take more than a seemingly ordinary middle-aged lady to make her fall apart. But when that lady is Trudy Lombard, all bets are off. Just seeing Trudy at the station plunges Eve back to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized young girl—and trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits smiling in front of her. Trudy claims she came all the way to New York just to see how Eve is doing. But Eve’s fiercely protective husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise—and a blackmail attempt by Trudy proves his suspicion correct. Eve and Roarke just want the woman out of their lives. But someone else wants her dead. And when her murder comes to pass, Eve and Roarke will follow a circuitous and dangerous path to find out who turned the victimizer into a victim.

Happy sigh. This is one of my favorite re-reads. I tend to read it around the Christmas season. But seriously. I needed a happy (as it can be) In Death book. It gets to be a bit of a grind to just read about rape and murder in every other book. Memory in Death (In Death #22) is a really good Eve D...
When I need a little change from my regular reading material I grab some JD Robb. It just stays wonderful!
My first excursion into Nora Roberts' (J.D. Robb's) "In Death" series, and while it wasn't enough to make me a wild fan or rush out to find the 21(!) previous volumes, I enjoyed it well enough. The world-building for the year 2059 setting was fun - basically just odd details, or often just oddly-nam...
