  • nice 50th title in series

    I read and enjoyed a few of JD Robb’s Eve Dallas near-future mysteries back in the 1990s, when they first came out. But somehow, over the years, I lost track of the series, and didn’t read any more. So I was happy to get an ARC of the 50th (!!!) title in the series, Golden in Death, to read in exchange for my honest review. And I enjoyed Golden in Death a lot. First, one of my favorite types of mysteries is a police procedural, and this is arguably (give-or-take a few romance-y scenes, which I tended to skim over quickly) a police procedural, since we get to watch Eve and her colleagues find evidence, follow the clues and hunt for connections, with, of course, some help from Roarke and his crew. Second, I continue to like the relationship between Roarke and Eve, although after 50 books, I might have expected a bit more development. After many many years, I didn’t remember very many other specific characters, but did remember Summerset, Roarke’s major-domo, and was glad to see that he was still around. I was pleased to find that I didn’t feel as if I needed to have read all of the intervening books to enjoy this one, and I didn’t feel as if I missed much by picking this one up after such a long time. Finally, with the exception of the aforementioned romance-y scenes, I like the crisp writing style, which seems to match the police procedural nature of the book. I’ve decided to add JD Robb to my “watch” list and maybe pick up some of the earlier titles in the series in e-book, although I’m sad to see that most of them are pretty pricey, so I’ll have to keep my eye out for some to go on sale, perhaps. Thanks again to Edelweiss and the publisher for the ARC. And also please keep in mind that I try to fight “star-inflation” a little bit. I reserve 5 stars for a very few of my most favorite books, ones I’m likely to read and reread time-and-again, and 4 stars is a great rating from me.

  • A Decent Addition to the Series.

    I was expecting more given that this was an anniversary book-it felt like too much of the plot was recycled from previous works in terms of the murderers and their reasons/personalities. The murder method was original though, and I did enjoy the book overall as a fan of the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
