Series In Death #29
When the newly promoted captain of the NYPSD and his wife return a day early from their vacation, they were looking forward to spending time with their bright and vivacious sixteen-year-old daughter who had stayed behind.

Not even their worst nightmares could have prepared them for the crime scene that awaited them instead. Brutally murdered in her bedroom, Deena's body showed signs of trauma that horrified even the toughest of cops; including our own Lieutenant Eve Dallas, who was specifically requested by the captain to investigate.

When the evidence starts to pile up, Dallas and her team think they are about to arrest their perpetrator; little do they know yet that someone has gone to great lengths to tease and taunt them by using a variety of identities. Overconfidence can lead to careless mistakes. But for Dallas, one mistake might be all she needs to bring justice.

I picked this book up because Series

What I liked the Most? The wedding & that that entails

What I liked the Least? (This is the what you are supposed to dislike FYI) Pretending to be someone else, befriending them and gaining their trust – just so you can kill them

Review: Wow – just wow. I’ve been hesitant to continue the series because it was up and down the last few – but this was a home freaking run. Total & complete. Homer!!!! Beenie – you get to see/read a little bit of what it’s like living in Eve’s head this time around.

I love the fact that JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts) knows how to edit a scene to the breaking point – take in point The Wedding. It was very simple, just a few lines about the dress & then bam.

All my favorite supporting cast members were here – though some were not as featured as they should be (I love me some Mavis!!! She’s the BFF I’ve always wanted)

Recommended to: Fans of the series

Best Quote: “We’re not stumped, the bleeding investigation is ongoing and we’re pursuing all shagging avenues.”
