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....

Haunted in Death by J. D. Robb - I listened to the audio of this one and reviewed it earlier. It was an entertaining story that had ultra-rational Eve confronting a ghost. I liked the by-play between Eve and Roarke in this one. The story was well-told and well-read.Poppy's Coin by Mary Blayney -- This is a historical romance centered around a magic coin. A gentleman, short of coin and the guardian to two young children, takes a job as a companion for a rich widow and then has to deal with falling in love with her without feeling like he sold himself to her. It was a nice romance.The Passenger by Ruth Ryan Langan is a contemporary ghost story. The hero and heroine meet in the wilderness where she is trying to get a story of a mysterious light on a lake and he is beginning a daredevil quest of survival. They meet when his plane crashes and she finds him and fall in love - guided by the spirit of her dead mother. It was also entertaining as the two lonely people decided that they had found the perfect person for each of them.Mellow Lemon Yellow by Mary Kay McComas -- I abandoned this one when the male lead (at least I think so) made his first appearance at the heroine's father's funeral wearing ruby red slippers. Apparently the heroine was the only one who could see him. I didn't have the patience to keep reading and figure out what was going on.All in all, the J. D. Robb story was great, the other two stories I read were entertaining, and only one didn't suit my taste.

Just okay for me. I enjoyed the Eve Dallas story, but the rest were just kinda eh for me. Not a big romance reader anyway. If you enjoy romances, this would be a good read, otherwise read the first story and skip the rest.

A lovely, short interlude with Eve, where she faces a mystery that might have a paranormal element - something she refuses to believe in. Well told and fits nicely in a paranormal anthology without going over the top about it and changing the essence of Eve and her stories.

"Haunted in Death" by J. D. Robb. Futuristic paranormal romantic suspense. I'm not sure how I feel about the introduction of a ghost into the series. It feels a bit like the magical healing in Ceremony in Death, but not quite as intrusive. I think how you feel about the introduction of paranormal elements into a series (or book) that's otherwise not paranormal, depends on whether you think those things do exist in real life. I'll buy the psychic in Visions in Death, but while I think there is something to psychic healing, I don't think it takes the form of magically making injuries disappear. The same with ghosts--I'll buy a feeling, and maybe a sighting, but not the elaborate production the ghost put on here. I thought Eve's reaction was exactly right, thought the killer's motivation was idiotic, Roarke was his usual credulous self, and Peabody was star-struck, also as usual. Poppy's Coin by Mary Blayney. Historical romance. Pretty standard story about a magic coin that grants the holder one wish. Hero's a major who was at Waterloo, guardian of two young children, no way to support them until he sells his commission, which is hard to do now that the war's mostly over. He wishes for lucrative & enjoyable employment, and the heroine, a well-off widow, hires him to be her escort. Entirely predictable, but not horrible.The Passenger by Ruth Ryan Langan. Contemporary romance. You could call it paranormal, I suppose, since a ghost/guardian angel brought the h/h together, and there was some time distortion, but that was only on the periphery of the story about two loners/adventurers who find each other in the wilderness.Mellow Lemon Yellow by Mary Kay McComas. Women's fiction. I'm not going to call this romance because, while the heroine does get married at the end, we don't see her falling in love. What we do see is her changing her life with the help of her childhood imaginary friend, a product of her imagination. "Mel" seemed to waffle between being an independent person and being only what she imagined, consciously or subconsciously. If I tried to think about it too much, it just got confusing. Pretty standard story of a woman changing her life and getting a HEA as a result.

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.
