Book Review : Fantasy in Death

On July 1, 2010 by Aimee

I’m a big fan of the J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) ‘In Death” series. I’ve read every single one and own a copy of each … paperback versions from way back when and hard back now. They are part of my library.

In any case, Fantasy in Death did not disappoint.

Back were Dallas and Roarke who I swear I’d want to meet if they were real people. Peabody, McNab and Feeney, a smidge of Bella and Mavis and Nadine, oh! and Dr. Mira. So the whole cast.

The entire series is based on Eve Dallas’ word as a cop in the New York Police and Security Department — she’s a Homicide Lieutenant. The books are always full of surprises, inspiration, revelation and of course some steaminess.

This one didn’t have nearly the steam, stuck well and solid to the investigation.

I’m okay with that because J.D. (aka Nora) can weave the twists and turns from the start to the finish and all along, we go with her and can learn the whodunnit as she does, though Lt. Eve always knows it way ahead of time.

In this book, Eve is faced with some serious electronics work and relies heavily on her team to figure it out — which is kind of cool, though she’s still a main and key player.

We also really see her soft side with Roarke, or I did at least. She doesn’t show it often, when she does, it’s heartfelt. Gotta love her!

So without giving further pause, I say read this one too because while it’s not much about relationship dynamics this one is a great story on the investigation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. :)
