  Holiday in Death another great addition to the series

The "...in Death" series by J.D. Robb continues with the holiday season and a serial killer on the loose. The killer uses the Christmas carol, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" as his theme for the murders and leaves with each victim a partridge in a pear tree at the first murder scene and two turtledoves at the second scene. Eve discovers that the murderer dresses up as Santa Claus to gain easy entry by the victim.

As in the other books in the series, the spicey romance between Eve and Roarke is a pleasant diverstion from murder and mayhem.

The book is fast paced and holds the readers interest. If you haven't read any of the other books in this series, start with Naked in Death and read them all. It's a terrific series that will have you waiting and anticipating the next book.

 
  Even the Holiday Season attracts Killers....

Holiday In Death is another great addition to this thrilling series. Not only is it Eve and Roake's first Christmas together but there is a serial killer running around. A serial killer who dresses up like Santa Clause, is very neat and tidy and uses "The Twelve Days of Christmas " as his theme. The suspense in this series just keeps getting better. I never know the "who done it " until the very end. This is an excellent installment.
 
  Santa's packing....

This book was very well written and kept me on the tip of my toes from beginning to end. It was the first of the series I read and it left me craving for more. Most of the time when I read a book that has a murder mystery plot I figure it out long before the detectives, but it kept me guessing right up until the end. I LOVED IT and you will too.
 
  Dallas & Roarke Do Christmas

I've been a big fan of this series ever since the first one, Naked in Death--and ordinarily l don't like romance novels. These intrigue me.

I was a little worried after Vergeance in Death that Robb had lost her steam. (I'm sorry, I just can't buy that Whitney and the police chief buy Eve's story about the seral killer that covers up Roarke's true involvement in the earlier deaths.)

But that may be a minor quibble. She's back at the top of her form here. A good story with a nice twist. And I was glad to see Charles Monroe again. Maybe w/ a little competition, McNabb will get off the dime about Peabody.

Only down side -- nearly a whole year before the next one. Bummer!

Note to the author: At some point, Eve and Roarke have to end the honeymoon. It would be nice to have them have some serious difference of opinion and then work it out.

 
  Ho Ho Ho!

It is Christmas in Manhattan, and someone is celebrating the season by killing. The only link between the victims, is a dating service named Personally Yours. To help solve the murders, Eve puts Peabody and her arch nemisis, McNab undercover as clients of the exclusive dating service. As Eve uncovers secrets about the clients and owners of Personally Yours - secrets that might be worth killing over - she struggles with her past and the the cruel rape-murders. When the attacker goes after one of her own, Eve must fight the darkness with in her and obey her training as a law officer.
HOLIDAY IN DEATH is a great addition to the "IN DEATH" series. This is Eve's first Christmas where she actually has a family and is surrounded by people she cares about. It is very touching and amusing to watch her struggle with buying gifts and Roarke's tree trimming. In contrast to this beautiful season for Eve, is the cruel reality of her past. Eve and Roarke struggle to find the balance between past and present, so that they can go on with there future, and start new traditions together.
