Glory in Death- Bookish Thoughts #50
What Glory in Death is about:
Even in the mid-twenty-first century, during a time when genetic testing usually weeds out any violent hereditary traits before they can take over, murder still happens. The first victim is found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second is murdered in her own apartment building. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provide Eve with a long list of suspects-including her own lover, Roarke.
I am truly amazed that Nora Roberts is JD Robb! Her Death series is tougher, smarter, sexier, and grittier than anything she writes as Roberts and I'm truly hooked!! She delivers another scorching book in the series that starts out with a gruesome death and never loses steam until the very last page. I have a MAD crush on Roarke (Eve's Lover) and I can't seem to get enough of him. He loves Eve with every fiber in his being and will go to any extreme to keep her safe, even when it totally pisses her off. I love that about him...he's very Alpha Male!! Eve's character is still evolving and very slowly is she letting her guard down when it comes to trusting others. She's a complex woman and I like her!
Recommend? Absolutely. I'm very excited about the fact that I have a ton of these to read. When my reading slump was in full gear, this book helped lift me out of my funk and actually made me want to keep my head in a book.
