How in the heck do I rate "Suite 606"? This is a collection of four paranormal romantic suspense stories by four different authors, and I had four very different reactions.

First up (and the overwhelming reason to buy this sucker) is J.D. Robb's "Ritual in Death". Here we're treated to the latest doings of Eve and Roarke. When the glittering society party Roarke and Eve are attending is interrupted by the appearance of a very nude, very bloody man with a knife, Eve thanks whatever god is watching out for her and kicks into action. The corpse appears to have been a victim of a ritual sacrifice of some sort and Eve may have to resort to some extremely unorthodox techniques to catch this killer.

"Love Endures" by Mary Blayney is a historical about love betrayed and love regained...with the 'help' of a not-so-helpful ghost.

"Cold Case" by Ruth Ryan Langan tells of a modern burned out, bummed out cop and his arresting, and haunting vacation.

And the book closes with "Wayward Wizard" by Mary Kay McComas, another contemporary story about an estranged mother and child and the wizard whose unexpected appearance helps bridge their gap.

As expected, I LOVED Robb's story and for Eve & Roarke fans, this one alone makes shelling out the cash for the book woth every penny! Next best for me was a tie between Mary Blayney's story and "Wayward Wizard" even though both heroines took a bit of warming up to. As for Langan's story, it didn't particularly sit well with me and the ending was a bit jarring.

Writing short stories aren't as easy as some may think. For JD Robb, I think it's sometimes impossible. Fans complain that the four authors(Robb, Mary Blayney, Mary Kay McComas, and Ruth Ryan Langan)aren't writing the same type of story, therefore it's an uneven effort. I, however, beg to differ. While none of them on the surface have nothing to do with each other, the link is the title. I have a feeling someone floated the premise of using just the phrase "Suite 606" and asked all four ladies to run with it. While I preferred some of the stories more than others(Robb is tops, with McComas, Blayney, and Langan following behind in my likability scale), I appreciate how their minds work and their writing styles complimented each other. There is a thread that ties all four stories together(if one is paying attention)and it made me smile after I picked it up. I agree that the book may not be for everyone, but I'd go through a lot to get my hands on a new "In Death" story.

I found Suite 606 as much fun as any of the books that I have read from J. D. Robb and the extra authors that were included. As usual, some of the stories are really off the grid but still keep you hanging in to find the answer out. I have all of the J.D. Robb series and as most have read it more than once. I enjoy the extra books with different authors also so have only a real positive to offer for anyone buying. I have shared many of my books with friends and this last one with a neighbor who reads all the time and the ghost was her favorite. I stay with Dallas and her friends as my main reason for purchasing any book with Robb as the main author or a special part. She always sends her characters into really great places and seems to knw just when to get you the reader really involved.
