One of those days

Man, I really miss Steve Irwin & Mr. Rogers.

 

They are some of the "famous" people whose deaths feel really personal, as if they were family. Each time I see mention of them, I burst into tears. There are other famous people whose death feel personal, but I grew up with these guys. Death really gets to me even if I barely knew the person, even if I didn't know them at all. I don't mean only for famous people. Anyone. I've been told it is because I have a big heart, but does my mental health "glitches" play a part in how death basically triggers me into a melt down, depressive state?

Celebrity in Death by J.D. Robb
Celebrity in Death - J.D. Robb

At a party in honor of the movie based on Nadine's book, The Icove Agenda (detailing the case in Origin), the actress playing Peabody is found floating in the pool. The suspects are almost legion, since K.T. Harris wasn't exactly known for her easy-going and sunny disposition. But who would actually kill the woman? And the PI she hired to spy on the man who spurned her for the actress playing Eve?


Somehow I just didn't feel this one. Maybe it was the fact it was predictable (I knew who the killer was before the one-third mark), maybe it was the fact the killer's motive (for everything that happened) was beyond iffy, or maybe it was the fact the story lacked the usual chemistry between the characters (even Roarke and Eve left me strangely cold).

It was a good, solid story, but the tempo was odd and it lacked that "special connection", the "oomph" I was expecting with the whole movie-thing involved.

Death Of A Celebrity by Eleanor Calder
Death of a Celebrity (Book 1 of a Harriet Rose Cozy Murder Mystery Series) (Harriet Rose Humorous Cozy Murder Mysteries) - Eleanor Calder

I really enjoyed this Cozy Mystery. I've given it a 4.5* rating. It pulled me in from the beginning and held me to the end. The heroine is a mystery writer and she can't help snooping into things. Along the way I had a few laughs to lighten things up. Look forward to more of her work.

Celebrity in Death
Celebrity in Death - J.D. Robb I never knew how much I looked forward to the chase scenes, shootings, stabbing and all the other excitement that permeated these books, until I read this one. I never thought I would find myself saying that an Eve Dallas book could be boring, but this one was.

Eve, Roarke and Dehlia have been invited to the party that is celebrating the the movie (vid) "The Icove Agenda". While there, nasty words are exchanged between the actress playing Peabody and almost everyone who is at the party. Naturally she is later found dead under suspicious circumstances. Everyone is a suspect...

There is a lot of leg-work for Eve and Dehlia, a lot of people to interview and that's about it. J.D. did do the usual and toss in plenty of red herrings, but I just didn't care. I kept trying to force myself not to page to the back of the book to see who really dunnit.

Oh and did want to mention to the proof -readers and editors, that they may want to rethink using the abbreviation 'anal' for the word 'analyze' or 'analysis'...just sayin'!
