If you're like me and you've read all of these Eve Dallas books, you're probably not going to stop after 27. If you haven't read them yet, you can read them out of order and not miss much. It's gotten so that lately there are really no chances taken with the main or supporting characters. Nothing advances in the ongoing stories or relationships (the ME has a girlfriend - zzzz). Too many of the secondary personalities are living happy little lives now and there isn't any conflict or interest there. If Nora really wants to energize this series, she'll introduce some new characters or have something major happen in the lives of the ones she has. Personally, I'd like to see Eve and Roarke get custody of a kid. That said, as always, this was a fun and easy read.

Another excellent book. The relationships in these books are one of their big attractions, you feel like you know these people and like them. Of course the mystery is always pretty good also.

Haven't had time to read this yet - still have most of the series to go thru first! And in this case it does help to have read at least the previous book at a minimum. But if it's anything like the ones that I _have_ read, it'll be great.

This installment moved a lot slower for me than other Eve Dallas books, but the story was still very intense and thought provoking.

What starts out as a routine investigation into the murder of a neighborhood priest during a funeral mass turns into a case of identity theft, greed and retribution and linking to multiple unsolved murders seventeen years prior. Eve tackles this case with the same tenacity and determination she gives to every case. As more layers are revealed, the more complex this case becomes.

When a televangelist is murdered the same way during a sermon, I immediately thought Eve would be tracking a serial killer targeting religious leaders. When the second murder is solved fairly quickly, I realized that the murders are not connected, other than cause of death.

Not a lot of sparring with Somerset in this story, unfortunately. I am looking forward to Eve losing her mind over hosting Louise's bridal shower. She would much rather get into fights with criminals than come within a hundred miles of giggling women. I can't wait to see how it plays out.

After 27 installments of this series, I feel like I'm putting on a comfortable sweater when I'm reading an Eve Dallas book. The characters are so well written that the reader feels a deep rapport with them. Luckily for the readers, this series does not appear to be running out of steam.

As always, J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) has the reader at the edge of their seat and laughing also. The suspense and puzzle of "who done it" is excellent. A terrific read for those who like action.

Was a very good book. Something a little different in the way you see Eve's life. Not the page turner of some of the books in this series......but maybe you get to see why Eve does the things she does and acts the way she does with this one.
