If you don't care for Nora Roberts BUT love Mystery/Dark Thrillers with a side of romance and a dash of comedy - then I think you'll love J.D. Robb's ... In Death series written by Nora Roberts alter ego.

I won't go into the details of the books but will tell you this: Superb character development, continuity of the story line (which means you really need to read the books in order although they can stand alone) is top notch, the relationships that are webbed and weaved together throughout each page are phenomenal and let's the reader 'really' get to know the characters.

Here's a list of all the books in order (I'm leaving off the 'In Death' part):

1 Naked
2 Glory
3 Immortal
4 Rapture
5 Ceremony
6 Vengence
7 Holiday
7.5 Midnight in Death (Silent Night Anthology)
8 Conspiracy
9 Loyalty
10 Witness
11 Judgement
12 Betrayal
12.5 Interlude in Death (Out of this World Anthology)
13 Seduction
14 Reunion
15 Purity
16 Portrait
17 Imitation
17.5 Remember When (1st part by Nora, 2nd by JD Robb - stories are connected)
18 Divided
19 Visions
20 Survivor
21 Origin
22 Memory
22.5 Haunted in Death (Bump in the Night Anthology)
23 Born
24 Innocent
24.5 Eternity in Death (Dead in the Night Anthology)
25 Creation
26 Strangers
26.5 Ritual in Death (Suite 606 Anthology)
27 Salvation
28 Promises
29 Kindred
29.5 Missing in Death (The Lost Anthology)
30 Fantasy

From Publishers Weekly
The year is 2058. Guns are banned and medical science has learned how to prolong life to well beyond the century mark. And man has yet to stop killing man. At Cop Central, it's Lieutenant Eve Dallas's job to stand up for the dead. So begins the seventh riveting installment in Robb's (aka Nora Roberts) futuristic romantic suspense series (following Vengeance in Death). With Christmas only weeks away, Eve is stressing out trying to find the right gift for her new husband, Rourke, who "not only had everything, but owned most of the plants and factories that made it." More to her concern is the latest serial killer who is using "The Twelve Days of Christmas" as a theme for his heinous rape and murder spree. The case touches Eve on a personal level, and while flash-backs from her abusive childhood are flinchingly repetitious, it defines Eve's gritty, hard-boiled character and validates her obsessive determination to bring down the killer any way she can.

Another really good story. I am a bit amused, though, that Eve is just exhausted and dragging at the end of each day, yet has such wild, yeehaw sex every night too. Maybe life will be different in the year 2058!

I love powerful Lt. Eve Dallas and how the complex New York City crimes are solved. If you don't wanna bite her husband, don't read these books! Nora Robert's best writing is as JD Robb in this "In Death" series of some 30+ stories to date. I collect all of the JD Robb books, but skip the Roberts, whose stories are not as tight as those about Lt. Eve Dallas - ass kicker! If the future of New York is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex.

No one likes to be alone during the holidays. For New York's most posh dating service, Personally Yours, it is the season to bring lonely hearts together. But Lt. Eve Dallas, on the trail of a ritualistic serial killer, enters an elite world of people searching for their one true love--and one killer searching for his next victim. Another great "In Death" book.

I loved this one. They have all been great but this one really sucked me in. I like the mystery, romance and the laughter that comes with these books. I really feel a connection to the characters growing with each book. Maybe that's why I enjoyed this one so much.

Best series I have ever read. I cant put them down. This is Nora roberts as J.D. Robb. This is another story about Future cop Eve Dallas. Its not so out ther that its sci-fi. However the stories capture you and you cant wait for the next. I have 9-10 of these books and everyone is awsome if you like romance/mystery novels.

Lt. Eve Dallas is investigating the brutal rape and murder of two woman. The killer is using "The Twelve Days of Christmas" as a theme to his murders. The victims common bond is they were both using the Personally Yours dating service. Eve asks Peabody and McNab to go under cover as patrons of the dating service, while she investigates the owners and tries to stop the killer from striking again.

This is one of my favorite in the series. Not only do we have a great mystery, but we get some funny scenes of Eve doing some Christmas shopping while McNab annoys Peabody. My rating: 5 Stars.

Eve Dallas, on the trail of a ritualistic serial killer, has made a disturbing discovery: All of the killer's victims have been traced to Personally Yours. As the murders continue, Eve enters an elite world of people searching for their one true love - and a killer searching for his next victim. A world where the power of love leads men and women into the ultimate act of betrayal..."

I really love the "In Death" series, and this book was a replacement for one I lost several months ago. Each time a new one comes out, I go back to the beginning and re-read each of them in sequence (including the "tweens") to thoroughly enjoy the continuing timeline.
