ORIGIN IN DEATH by J. D. Robb
Origin in Death - J.D. Robb
  A much lauded doctor is murdered and Eve gets the case. She uncovers more than murder and knows the doctor should not be lauded.

This was good. Eve has to deal with family. Roarke's family is coming from Ireland to partake of an American Thanksgiving dinner. Neither knows what to do but they will figure it out along with murder. There were several times I laughed out loud as Eve and Roarke try to navigate family and friends as family. I like how Eve is learning to handle her "family" so she doesn't hurt their feelings. I also like that she is learning to fight and forgive within that "family."

This is a good series that deals not only with the police work but the softening of Eve as she protects the city she cares about and the people she loves.

Apprentice in Death - J.D. Robb

Apprentice in Death is the 43rd installment in the In Death series and I loved it every bit as much as I did Naked in Death, which is the 1st book in the series. Seriously I have mad love for this series and it hasn’t diminished after 43 books.

I adore the romance between Roarke and Eve. Their relationship has grown so much since the first book and I love watching them work through the every day issues in their marriage and come out stronger in each book. I also love how much help Roarke gives to each and every one of Eve’s cases. It is so sweet to watch him worry over how hard she works and how much she gives of herself to every single victim.

 

I also loved getting to spend so much time with Eve’s team as they searched for the newest killer. Yes they had the names of the people they were looking for pretty early on, but it still took lots of teamwork to find locations to search. We don’t always get enough time with Eve’s team and friends, but I loved getting to spend so much time with so many favorite characters. I know part of the reason I continue to love this series is because of the ensemble cast. As much as I absolutely love Roarke and want to be Eve Dallas when I grow up, I love how the relationships and friendships have grown so strong over the course of this series.

 

I love even with all the ugliness of murder in each book, we always get something sweet in each story. Mavis and Leonardo’s daughter Bella’s birthday party had me smiling from ear to ear. I absolutely love watching Dallas and Roarke interact with this little girl and be so far outside their comfort zones.

 

I had a few ideas about the bad guy early on, and was glad to see I had part of it right. Although I was off on one aspect, I still found the mystery part of the story solid. I have to say I love watching Eve’s brain works as she breaks down each and every detail of the case. She has a way of seeing so much so fast and I love trying to keep up with how her mind works.

 

I highly recommend the In Death series to any readers who love the romantic suspense genre. Apprentice in Death is an amazing addition to the series and I believe both old and new fans will fall in love with this book.

SURVIVOR IN DEATH by J. D. Robb
Survivor In Death - J.D. Robb
  This one got to me. A family is murdered but their daughter survives because she disobeyed and got out of bed to go to the kitchen for a snack. I cried as I read the sections with Nixie. Watching Eve deal with a nine-year-old was fun but heart-wrenching. I did think it would end differently but
'twas not to be. Oh, Eve does get the bad guy. Probably the best of the series so far.

VISIONS IN DEATH by J. D. Robb
Visions in Death - J.D. Robb
  A serial killer is lose in NYC and he takes the eyes of the women he has raped and killed. Eve gets the case and she finds other cases of missing persons that may be related. She also has a psychic who tells her she has visions of the murders. It gets more personal when Peabody is attacked.

I like this group of characters. Eve is having a hard time with all these friends and friends of friends but she is building a family from them. She is learning to care for them although it scares her, especially when Mavis asks her and Roarke to be the back up coaches for her baby's birth. Eve needs to be stronger than she is when Peabody is attacked and Eve has to deal with the personal costs as well as the job. I like Eve's vulnerability. I also like that Roarke can read her and know what is going on in her mind. I like how the two complement each other.

Can't wait to read the next one.

DIVIDED IN DEATH by J. D. Robb
Divided in Death - J.D. Robb
  Homeland Security seemingly sets up Roarke's employee to take the fall for her husband's murder. Roarke asks Eve to step in to ensure the real murderer is caught.

I like that Eve has a growing family. I am amazed as I read how much Roarke's emotions are shown. I also like how Roarke can read Eve and understand her without her being able to verbally express herself. I have fun watching Eve try to deal with her insecurities of dealing with her "family" on an emotional level.

I love this series.
