I just love this series. I love that it can have me laughing over Eve's observations about bouncing babies to have me crying just a few short pages later.

"She wondered why people were forever bouncing babies when it seemed--from her wary observation--that the perpetual motion only caused what was in their digestive systems to come spewing out. Of either end."

"Do you know who designs shoes like the ones I'm wearing, Peabody?"

 

"The shoe god. Those are magolicious shoes, sir."

 

"No, not the shoe god. These are the product of a man, a devious flesh and blood man, who secretly hates all women. By designing shoes like this, he can torture them for profit."

 

"They make your legs look a hundred feet tall."

 

"Yeah, that's what I want all right. A pair of hundred-foot legs."

 

Reason 172,839,283 why I love Eve Dallas.

Shelter in Place
Shelter in Place - Nora Roberts
SHELTER IN PLACE by Nora Roberts
SHELTER starts out as a horrific massacre in a shopping mall but quickly becomes a combination love story (an intelligent love story) and a thrilling search for a murdering mastermind.
Roberts has a genius for writing characters her readers fall in love with. SHELTER is no exception. Simone, CICi and Reed, the lead characters, are richly endowed with personality complete with interesting quirks. The supporting characters, while not as intimately drawn, are fully developed. The Maine coast is a major player in the tale. You will hear the waves crash and smell the flowers. Two of the main characters are artists and their talent is clear from the text as are their methods of expression.
The plot is terrifying and builds to a crescendo of a climax.
Readers of mysteries will enjoy the twists and turns of the plot. Readers of love stories will watch as the characters grow into a satisfying relationship. If you are squeamish, you may find the violence off putting, but it is necessary to the story line. The sex is present, but not overdone or gratuitous. Foul language is present, but, again, fits with the character and story line and is not omnipresent. Altogether an enjoyable read.
5 of 5 stars
