The death of history teacher Craig Foster devastated his young wife, who'd sent him off to work that morning with a lovingly packed lunch.

I could not put "Innocent in Death" down. Although, I guessed the killer from the beginning, I hoped I was wrong.

All is well that ends well. The journey through this book was the best entertainment! The solution to the mystery does not make anyone happy. that said, I thought it was a great book

Newest in the series. This one was somewhat more predictable. I figured out the who early on...and the storyplot just didn't seem as intriguing as the other installments. However, as an addicted fan to this series...of course I read all in one sitting! Enjoy.

Excellent! Love this series! In this book, Eve is surprised at her own reaction when she has competition for Roarke's attention.

There is more angst than usual between Lt. Dallas and her mega-rich husband, Rourke. A stunning woman from his past appears and distracts Dallas from her case of a popular young teacher who is slain in his classroom. This is one of the only series that I HAVE to read in hardback as I can't wait for the paper.

When I ordered this book, I didn't realize it was part of a long series. Once I noticed, I ordered the first book of the series then read it before this one, and although I liked it, I wasn't very impressed. I couldn't put this book down though. Very good writing and great suspense. This is not my normal book genre but I would highly recommend it.

I've said before that the "...IN DEATH" series by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) is my all-time favorite series, and after 24 books, that still holds true.

With INNOCENT IN DEATH, I spent as much time crying over the emotional disturbance between my favorite couple, Eve Dallas and Roarke, as I did trying to find out who committed the crimes.

When a likeable, all-around good guy teacher at a private school ends up dead, poisoned by ricin in his hot chocolate, the school is in shock. Eve immediately realizes that not all is at it seems at the school; that everyone, from the principal, to the other teachers, to the students, and to their parents have things they'd rather keep hidden.

While trying to solve the murder of Craig Foster, and the subsequent death of yet another teacher, Eve must deal with the emotional roller-coaster of the reappearance of one of Roarke's old flames. And unlike the majority of women from Roarke's past, Magdelena Purcell is a woman that Roarke never forgot.

As one passage states, when Magdelena informs Eve that Roarke didn't leave her, but that it happened the other way around, both women know that that small distinction makes all the difference.

INNOCENT IN DEATH is one of my new favorites in the series. Not only was the mystery an interesting and compelling one (with a suspect that I didn't see coming), but the true, deep emotions of my favorite couple made this a real winner. Thankfully, everything worked itself out in the end, and my heart, along with Eve's, is finally feeling lighter.
