Creation in Death by J.D. Robb

This is getting to be a bit of a habit, this posting of my TBR Day review a week late. I'm hoping that next month is better. No really, I am.

Creation in Death is the 25th book in the In Death series by JD Robb. Because of that, it's starting to feel like I've reviewed them all before, so this will likely be very short.

Here's the plot of this one: Someone has been horribly murdered. As they were a perfect nice someone, it's a bit shocking to all their friends and family. Eve starts to investigate, only to discover that the clues are all connected to Roarke! And her! Can she figure out who done it before the next victim dies? Clearly the killer is out to get Eve and therefore she should use herself as bait, thereby saving the next victim! She's going to need some help from her team- Peabody and McNab will talk sex and make Eve uncomfortable, Feeney and Eve hurt each other's feelings, she calls in her "civilian consultant" and in this one he uses his superior skills to make key things happen. Wait, which one is that the plot for?

Regardless of the repetition, this is a nice solid entry into the series. The button is only mentioned once, Trina doesn't mention Eve's hair, Mavis only makes a cameo, and the ongoing battle with Summerset isn't overdone. There isn't too much sex for the sake of sex. The Pepsi machine doesn't steal Eve's credits.

If you're still reading the series at this point, you know what to expect and you get it.

  1. Not a genre I read too often. Some of the members in my book group would probably enjoy this series though. I'll have to mention it to them.

  2. The author has written a lot of books hasn't she? Not only in this series but under her other name too.

  3. Sounds like quite a novel...I think I read a review of this book ...
