Bump in the Night-Nora Roberts

I enjoy this series by Nora Roberts, and this book kept up with her great work. I always hate when the book ends and want the story to keep going.


As usually J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts) has brought us the complicated Eve Dallas with all her baggage, passion and skills, to solve a murder. The complicated relationship between her and Rourke and the realistic futuristic setting make it all intriquing and enjoyable

only some of the stories

(Haunted in Death by Robb, Poppy's Coin by Mary Blayney The Passenger by Ruth Ryan Langan, Mellow Lemon Yellow by Mary Kay McComas) In this anthology of futuristic mystery stories, I enjoyed Robb's HAUNTED IN DEATH - a brief in-between story for the Eve Dallas IN DEATH series. Eve and Roarke have to face the history of a murder site - and the ghosts that haunt it. In POPPY'S COIN by Mary Blayney, romance blooms between two unlikely people when they are brought together by Poppy's coin, which grants the beholder's most wanted wish - but only if it is something that should be. THE PASSENGER brings together two people who realize how much the need each other to fulfill their lives - but only when thrown together in a magical wilderness. McComas' story of MELLOW LEMON YELLOW is an eye-opener - not scary - for a young woman who has devoted her life to her parents, and now has to live her own life. This was definitely an interesting mix of stories - great for passing time.

four fine science fiction-fantasy tales

"Haunted in Death" by JD Robb. In 2060 NYPD Police Detective Eve Dallas investigates two related homicides that happen to have occurred one hundred years apart with the prime suspect being a ghost even if the sleuth does not believe in apparitions. "Poppy's Coin" by Mary Blayney. In 1817 London, David is guardian to preadolescent Poppy and her infant brother Billy. He raises them as his own with love and tenderness. Poppy gives her "Papa" a gold coin that legend says makes wishes come true though not quite in the way that the beneficiary expected; just ask Papa and Lady Grace. "The Passenger" by Ruth Ryan Langan. The plane crash near Spirit Lake brought their lives rushing past them as each of the pair reflects on the ghosts of their past and what could have been. As athletic adventurer "fearless" Josh and photojournalist Grace begin to emotionally heal from more than just the crash they find more than surviving in common as they become lovers as each now knows how fragile life is. "Mellow Lemon Yellow" by Mary Kay McComas. Mellow Lemon Yellow has not visited Charlotte since she began to grow up and no longer needed an imaginary friend. However, Mel is there for his Charlotte when her father dies except this time he is a real person; either that or Charlotte has totally lost it. These are four fine science fiction-fantasy tales that fans will enjoy especially the whimsical poignant "Mellow Lemon Yellow". Harriet Klausner

4 stories that gave me "goosebumps"!

I love J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts and will buy any collection she is a part of. This collection presents 4 romantic stories that all have some type of supernatual touch from a ghost to magic to "angels." "Haunted in Death" is another in the amazing "In Death" series in which we join Eve and Peabody at their usual homicide crime scene but this time besides the newly murdered Radcliff C. Hopkins, they find a skeleton that had been hidden behind a wall! As the logical and down-to-earth Eve hears singing, music and other unexplained sounds, she with Roarke and Peabody's help uncovers the decades old murder mystery along with solving her current case. As always, a great story with a lot of detail packed into so very few pages. "Poppy's Coin" is Mary Blayney's wonderful go back in time tale of two people who are determined to be independent but also have social and financial problems to solve. The magic of the coin -- or is it magic? -- and the touching romance made this a sweet and tender story. "The Passenger" is a modern story of a sports celebrity and daredevil who heads to pull off one more adventure and finds himself in a very mysterious, ghostly and magical place. It is also the story of a young woman photographer who is not good at relationships and is devoted to her career for an international magazine. How they meet, fall in love and resolve their pasts, presents and futures defintely gave me some goosebumps! "Mellow Lemon Yellow" is about a young woman who did all she could to please her parents but now they are both gone -- has to discover what she really wants from life and who she really is! The "friend" who comes to help her, encourage her, push her and nag her gives some real comic relief to a very real story of a woman breaking out of her shell and finding all she could want and more! Highly recommended!!
