Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

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.

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.

interesting book

I enjoyed this book as I have most of Nora Roberts (and J.D.Robb) books. I find her J.D.Robb books good, but find that I get a little annoyed with the character of Dallas as she is too hard for a female of her characteristics. This is the 5th or 6th J.D.Robb book I've ...
I enjoyed this book as I have most of Nora Roberts (and J.D.Robb) books. I find her J.D.Robb books good, but find that I get a little annoyed with the character of Dallas as she is too hard for a female of her characteristics. This is the 5th or 6th J.D.Robb book I've read and although they are interesting, I get peaved with Dallas and her attitude toward women. She is one,isn't she?, and married to a very hot man, has hot steamy sex, and then acts like she doesn't know how a women should act around babies or other women. I can see her wanting to be a bad ass cop at times, but tone it down a little when she is not being a cop--although she never seems to have downtime to be just a woman. Oh well, I do mostly enjoy the books, though.

    Good Book

    I liked this book. I prefered the angle with rorke eve and magdelana more than the actual murder. I already knew it was the little girl from the moment they talked about the son dying. So it was a little predictable, but I was ready to strangle roarke at one point. Also the person who badmouthed the book I think you have your series mixed up. Eve Duncan is from Iris Johansens series in the Eve Duncan Thrillers. This is Eve Dallas not Duncan.

    another good book by JD Rob

    this book was very good and well wwritin . some things i liked1. Pebody was more voutspoken than in other books. she has her moments but in this one she shined. something else i liked it seemed Eve had to try harder in this case than with others. not that she hasn't tryed hard in others but this one was harder. things i didn't like. 1. Eve having her bad dreams again it seems she can't go a hole book with out them. and any one who has red all the books knows the bad dreams by now. but bad dreams aside this was a good book and one fans of the indeath books should like

    I couldn't put down this book. The story just moved along well and my curiosity was in gear. The plot was entertaining and fun.
