Death of an Outsider by M. C. Beaton (audiobook)
Death of an Outsider - M.C. Beaton,Shaun Grindell

Series: Hamish Macbeth #3

 

This one was read by a different but equally competent narrator. I'm rating this a little bit higher because although Hamish has some messed up ideas about marriage (this is the 80s not the 50s as far as I know), this had a line that greatly amused me and sparked discussion about lobsters and whether they'd actually eat a corpse.

 

Otherwise I don't have much to say; Hamish has to deal with another murder while subbing in for another policeman on vacation.

Naked in Death - J.D. Robb,Susan Ericksen

I'm rereading on audio. I read this book back when it was first released and as I started the audio I quickly realized my memory is not at all good! I wonder if it'll live up to my painfully vague memories of it?

Divided in Death
Divided in Death - J.D. Robb

This is probably one of my favorites in the series, and, if I'm being honest, I didn't think it would be. I knew going in that there was going to be a big "Issue-with-a-capital-I" between Eve and Roarke, and I didn't want to read it. Even though I knew it'd all be alright in the end.

 

But, I did, and ended up loving it. Stayed up past my bedtime last night to finish it.

 

A cheating husband and his lover are found brutally murdered. The man was married to an employee of Roarke's. She immediately comes under suspicion, but both Eve and Roarke believe she's innocent. In the course of their (Eve's and Roarke's) investigation, information is discovered about Eve's heartbreaking past. What to do with that information is where the division between Eve and Roarke begins. And this, to me, is the heart of the story.

 

I like that while they were both angry and hurt, and confused and unsure as to how to resolve their differences, you never once doubt their complete and total love for each other.  And the resolution, when it did come? I will admit to getting teary eyed and then rereading it once more after I got home from work today.

"She was drinking sherry from the bottle, like a harlot."

 

That's got to be one of the best lines in the book.
