My Thoughts

This is the fifth book in the In Death series by J.D. Robb and while I am still really enjoying it and want to continue with the series there are some things that bothered me about this book.

I of course am still really loving Eve and Roarke however the steamy scenes weren’t very steamy in this one and that was kind of a bummer to me. Those types of scenes were more fade to black in this book which is fine but I prefer having the steamy scenes.

In this book we actually know early on who the killer(s) is/are so we get to follow along while Eve works everything out. I personally would have preferred a big reveal at the end which there was a little reveal that I didn’t expect but overall knowing made it less suspenseful for me.

I have started noticing things being repeated in several of the books like how Eve doesn’t like shopping or something to do with her hair. While just minor things the repetitiveness is a little annoying.

As I mentioned I still plan to continue on with this series just because I love Eve and Roarke so much but this is probably my least favorite book in the series so far.

    1. Yeah I don’t expect to love them all. This was the first one I haven’t enjoyed much. I will be fine if there are a few here and there that I didn’t enjoy as much but if it starts happening back to back I might not be able to make it through the whole thing. We will have to see how things play out I guess lol.

    1. I can’t believe I’ve never read a J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts book until this year. Although technically I’ve still not read a Nora Roberts book. Yeah knowing it pretty early on takes all of the suspense out of it and makes it less fun.
