J.D. Robb is at it again!

I have been hooked on the stories Nora Roberts writes as J.D. Robb since I read the first one. I have always loved anything Ms. Roberts writes, but especially her Eve Dallas stories. The only thing I had a problem with in Bump In The Night was that it was too short. The story was too hurried. I read to relax and enjoy myself. All of Nora Roberts books do this for me! I have every one of her Eve Dallas books and can't wait for the next one. I really wish the Eve Dallas series were made into a movie or a made for television movies and would star Ms. Roberts as Eve!

Very bad, not worth your money

At least, not worth mine. I bought it because I'm a fan of Robb, but even that was not enough for the money spent. The story was OK, but nothing to write home about, and it's true that it's a bit surprising to find Eve so easily persuaded to believe in gosts. The ...
At least, not worth mine. I bought it because I'm a fan of Robb, but even that was not enough for the money spent. The story was OK, but nothing to write home about, and it's true that it's a bit surprising to find Eve so easily persuaded to believe in gosts. The 2nd story barely passed the mark, with the corniest ending, the 3rd however was just plain STUPID !! and made me want to hurl the book at the other end of the room (and I love books...) Anyway, the 4th story saved the antology, nice story, a bit cloying, but hey, it's a romance book. Nothing bumps in the night, no chills, no thrills, buy something else....

    Unfortunate disappointment

    I absolutely love the In Death series. Unfortunately, I couldn't get on board with this one. It was a short story and you can skip it and go to the next book in the series w/o skipping a beat.

    Disappointing

    I am a huge JD Robb fan and that's the primary reason I buy these anthologies. I was eager to read the mini Eve Dallas story, having found the previous two in these collections, to be quite good but Haunted in Death came across as hurried and sloppy. Eve investigates the murder of a man, whose family background is linked with the decades old mysterious disappearance of a jazz singer, and in the process finds herself in 'Number 12' the supposedly haunted house at the centre of the jazz singer's vanishing act. The main problem I had with this story was not so much the supernatural themes, but the fact that Eve, so grounded in reality and facts, suddenly finds herself face to face with spirits and ghosts and suddenly the story is over and she's convinced. Why? An ending that was entirely too pat for my liking and not in character with Eve Dallas.
