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

There is someone in New York, killing for their friend, the other half of them, Lieutenant Eve Dallas. First was a bitchy defense attorney, next it was a funky-junky snitch...Their major sin was showing disrespect for Eve, at least according to the messages the killer left for her at the crime scenes.

Eve and the rest of the crew know it's just a matter of time before the admirer turns onto the object of their obsession, but Eve hopes that turn comes soon—she'd just love to meet her biggest admirer.



Just when I started to despair that this series might've lost its edge, this book slammed me right back into fangirl zone.

The suspense was through the roof in this one, the sense of urgency palpable and almost stifling, and the waiting game as to who might come next and when the switch from admirer to enemy might occur excruciating. Sure, the pacing had its weaker moments, but once it picked up for the last time, it was non-stop, breakneck hurtling toward the finishing line.
And because of that sense of urgency and, let's face it, all-around danger, the "personal" aspects of the story shone even more. The characters, the relationships, the family the connections, the conversations and confessions...And in the middle of it all, Eve and Roarke with their ever-strengthening bond, the protectiveness of what they share, provided loads of quotable material.

Roarke bulled his way through Central as he'd bulled his way through downtown traffic, carving away the distance to Eve with single-minded focus.

He didn't think his heart had beat since Eve's face blinked off his 'link screen.


Tingles and shivers up and down my spine, and with that final showdown at Eve's "house", the urgency, the danger, the suspense...It was so thick you could cut it with a knife. It's fiction, and it's a series, so you know everything would work out, but there were a few moments in that last chapter that made me think it was touch-and-go. This is what good writing brings to the table.
I didn't even notice the formula or cared about the template, I just wanted to learn who the killer was and wanted everybody safe and sound at the end of it.

God, I loved this one.

Obsession: Mafia Ties: Christian & Mia
Obsession: Mafia Ties: Christian & Mia - FIona Davenport,Elle Christense,Rochelle Paige

I Picked Up This Book Because: I wanted a quick read and I’ve loved previous installments of Mafia Ties

The Characters:

Mia Ricci:
Christian DeLuca:

The Story:

Well I got what I asked for, a quick read. That doesn’t mean I’m happy with it. Most of this story happens within 24 hours. Christian and Mia are in love and Christian is ready to be married before he even speaks one word to Mia. I cannot suspend reality for this but I won’t continue to complain as that would make this review longer than the book. I did enjoy the second half of the story.

Writing: Okay.
Forward Motion: Fine
Overall Interest: It was rough in the beginning
Length of Reading Time: Took longer than I wanted due to lack of interest
Re-read-ability: No.

The Random Thoughts:



The Score Card:

2.5 Stars

October is National Book Month!
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Agatha Christie
Secret Obsession - Kimberla Lawson Roby
Don't Let Go - Harlan Coben
Salvage the Bones - Jesmyn Ward
The Widow - Fiona Barton

 

 

First of all, October is one of my favorite months or perhaps my only favorite month! I absolutely love everything about Fall and October...Halloween, autumn smells, the cooler weather, the shorter days, everything!!! So when I found out that October is also National Book Month, you can pretty much guess that I almost lost it!! I mean how  much more amazing can this month get?!!!

 

To observe this wonderful holiday, I am going to create my first TBR post. My October reads are set to include the following (hopefully, I can indulge in them all!!!):

 

Salvage the Bones - Jesmyn Ward

This is a read for my book club. A novel centered around a poor family and their issues as Hurricane Katrina makes landfall.

 

Don't Let Go - Harlan Coben

Nap Dumas is a police detective who is a little obsessed with digging for answers to his brothers mysterious death and his high school girlfriend's disappearance.  However, somebody doesn't want him to.

 

The Widow - Fiona Barton

I'm listening to this one. 

Jean is a master pretender. Once pretending to be the perfect wife and now that her husband has died, people are searching for the truth. Or what Jean makes them believe is the truth...

 

Secret Obsession - Kimberla Lawson Roby 

Paige is up to some dangerous scheming as a result of a jealous feud...scheming against her own sister. Sounds like some drama!

 

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Agatha Christie

I told myself that I would like to try and read at least on Agatha Christie a month.

 

So those are my tentative reads for now. I may get to them all and I may not. I feel like I should add a horror story in honor of Halloween...

 

What is on your October to read list?
