I Hate to Keep Repeating Myself...She's Done It Again!!!!

I've read every single one of the "In Death" titles, and it's still as exciting as the first title I picked up! Nora Roberts seems to hit gold with just about every title written under J.D. Robb! In this story, Eve and the Catholic Church clash, and I think the Church will never be the same again. Once again, Ms. Roberts has written a tightly researched(re recreation of the funeral Mass and priest's roles were spot on(I was educated in Catholic school from K-12 grades), thrilling, joyride of a mystery. Eve is definitely at the top of her game, and I cannot WAIT to read about Louise's bachelorette party/wedding shower, and the wedding of all weddings. It bummed me that Nadine and Mavis were merely cameos this time, but I still eagerly await the next title, and her adventures in a very realistic New York City 50+ years from now.

I've read all the "in Death" books and this one was a bit of a disappointment.I love the character development of all the previous books and this one didn't seem to build on them. I liked the idea of Morris with a love interest, but very little of the supporting characters was mentioned. I love Peabody and McNab's relationship, Nadine's friendship, Mavis' colorfulness, Sommerset's snarkiness, but quiet concern and all the others. I especially love her relationship with Roarke. I felt like this story was all murder case with none of the extras that affect Eve. The second murder in this story didn't seem necessary. I'm still excited about the next book, but hope it's not all case and a lot more of the outside influences.

    Good but not Robb's Best

    This book just was not up to J. D. Robb's usual standard. If you had taken out the second murder it would have been one of her short stories. The edge of your seat, nail bitting, goosebump thrill just was not there. The interaction between Eve and Roarke and She-body and McNabb was good, I always get a good laugh out of one of the scenes and Robb delivered on that. But as for as the other members of the In Death family it didn't shine. Nora is a great writer, I have read just about everything she has published but the In Death is my favorite of them all. I think she is spread to thin, that she needs to put more of her time and attention in the In Death books.

    Not My favorite Eve Dallas book!

    Kinda boring, not quite up to the Eve Dallas/Roarke standard. Better luck next time!

    How many previous characters and background situations can you fit into one book? Read Salvation in Death and find out!

    I really enjoyed the plot of the book being a subject that has been touched on in the past that Eve and Rourke don't feel too comfortable with. I like the fact that Eve is continually learning and growing with every case (ie. studying up on Catholicism, being able to view her childhood situation from a distance). However cramming everyone who is important to Eve and Rourke AND their background AND harping on Eve and Rourke's background is just tedious and boring unless it is worked into the story selectively and successfully. I started reading, I believe, Loyalty in Death and was curious about some of the back story so I read the book before that and then the book before that one, until I had them all. I had a great time enjoying how these people came into Eve's life in the same way we acquire our own friends. Starting with Innocent in Death I'm not wondering about any of the back story or how Eve met this person or that person because as soon as that person pops up in the book I am told everything! Yawn. I will be reading Promises in Death but I greatly fear that I will have to say goodbye to Eve and Rourke at the end and find a new friend that's not so bogged down in the minutia.
