Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With settings that range from the future to the historical past, these stories make the most of romance and emotion. They're great tales from great authors that don't disappoint!"—RT Book Reviews
Publishers Weekly
A talky, tepid entry from Robb/Roberts sets the stage for a disjointed and mostly disappointing collection of paranormal romances. Only Robb's and Ryan's stories adhere to the volume's "bump in the night" theme, and they are the weakest by far. The former, which centers on a murder in a haunted house, substitutes tough cop talk between series detective Eve Dallas and her assistant for verve and suspense; the latter spins a by-the-numbers romance between two workaholics who find love and inner peace while relaxing near a haunted lake. The remaining stories feature a sunnier atmosphere and more well-developed protagonists. Blayney tells a sweet if conventional 19th-century romance in which a young girl's magic coin helps a widow and a down-on-his-luck officer find happiness. But it's the inventive contribution from relative unknown McComas, about a woman who changes her life for the better with the help of her handsome imaginary friend, that steals the show. McComas focuses on the most important relationship of all-the relationship one has with oneself-and spins an introspective and irresistible story that, for some readers, may make this collection worthwhile.

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!

I find this book fasinating so far as a police detective story can tell. It could be very interesting if the detective has to deal with supernatural or a ghost.The intervening murders between the two eras. It took me a while to get into the story.

Well the first story was pretty good..the second however was kind of corny at the end..I think it could have ended better, or even that the writing of the whole story could have been better and more interesting...The third was better than the second, I liked it also(even if its kinda strange..)...The fourth, Mellow Lemon Yellow, was my favorite...Im glad the book ended on a good note...

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....

This is a collection of short stories from a variety of authors. If you like a bit of the paranormal, you will be entertained by this collection. They were short, easy reading to finish off a story rather quickly. The stories tend to feature ghosts, wishes or imaginary friends who might not be so imaginary. I picked up the book as it had one of the In Death novellas in it, but found that the last story featuring the childhood "friend" was my favorite of the bunch.

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.
