Shame
Robb Starr - J.A. Howard

Mia had a crazy crush on Rob, just like everyone at her school.  Their mom's are best friends so they basically grew up together.  When tragedy strikes and he notices her, she feels like it is the time to make the most of it.

 

Rob, to his credit spends a lot of time with her.  She has no idea why and worries about it a lot.  Mia does not feel worthy of him - but still he comes back around again and again.  Is it even possible to wish a future into happening?

 

This story was quite wordy.  I felt the pace went fast and I felt lost several times while reading.  This was more of a coming of age book to me than young adult.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

KINDRED IN DEATH by J. D. Robb
Kindred in Death - J.D. Robb

The teen-age daughter of a Captain in the Illegals Division is found murdered in her bed. The Captain asks for Eve Dallas to find the killer.

 

This was a good one. Eve has a psychological profile of the murderer but no pictures. He has managed to bypass a Roarke system, which Roarke is not pleased about. Together along with Eve's team at Cop Central they find the glitch in his plans. I like that Eve talks it out and that Roarke and others on the team can fill in where she has not gone in her thoughts which put her on the path to finding the murderer. She knows the why. She just has to find the who. I lost sleep staying up to read this book I was so intrigued by the path Eve took to find her murderer.

 

I look forward to the next one.

SALVATION IN DEATH by J. D. Robb
Salvation in Death - J.D. Robb
A priest dies while officiating a funeral mass.  Eve is called in when it looks like he was poisoned.  Who would want to kill a priest?  Eve has to look into the priest's past to find out why the murder happened.
 
Eve is more introspective in this one so there is not as much action as usual.  She keeps running into parallels with her own past and needs reassurance that she did not enjoy the killings she had to do in the line of safety.  Roarke and Eve are softer in their relationship.  Eve still harps at Roarke but is now more accepting of his ministrations towards her.  Both know what the other needs.  I love these two.

Review

This was a strong installment in the series, but not one that was memorable. A story of vengeance of two wealthy white privileged boys who get their hands on a bio-weapon. Although there were scenes that were well *chef's kiss* worthy, such as Peabody going OFF on the snide, smug asshole headmistress when her Free-Ager childhood was besmirched, there was little to go on mystery wise until the second death. It was nice to see Louise and Charles and an update to Rochelle and Crack. I think Roarke's assistance in this case was appropriate and not so over-reaching as he can get sometimes, especially in these later books.
