She was one of the most sought-after women in the world. A top model who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted -- even another woman's man. And now she was dead, the victim of a brutal murder. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas put her professional life on the line to take the case when suspicion fell on her best friend, the other woman in the fatal love triangle. Beneath the facade of glamour, Eve found that the world of high fashion thrived on an all-consuming passion for youth and fame. One that led from the runway to the dark underworld of New York City where drugs could fulfill any desire -- for a price . . .

I've noticed a formula for the In Death books and noticing this formula has dimmed my enjoyment.

1. Eve gets a murder case
2. Mavis does something cute and funny to cheer her up
3. Another person dies and adds the the case
4. Roarke does something romantic. This may or may not follow Summerset sassing Eve.
5. One more corpse, just for good measure.
6. Roarke does something illegal to help Eve, with a charming grin of course.
7. Everything's coming together now. This is totally the bad guy.
8. Hmmm, something's a bit off.
9. Though she's purportedly "the best" Roarke figures the case out before she does and just in the nick of time to rescue her from the actual bad guy, who holds off on killing her so he can describe his nefarious deeds in detail.

I really like all the secondary characters, as they have rich and unique personalities, but the plots are a bit too predictable so far.

One more book, and I'll decided if I quit or stick with the series.more
This is my favorite book so far in this series. I liked that Eve has remembered her past and was even strong enough to talk to Dr. Mira about it. I also loved how Rourke understands Eve and takes care of her whether she likes it or not. All the friendships Eve is forming also made me smile. She's basically creating her own family.

The actual crime and mystery were perhaps not as good as the very first book, but that didn't matter because it was the character growth and interaction that really made this a stand out read.more
This is one of my many go-to series when I want to fit a quick audiobook in between more serious reads, mostly because I have access to all the books for free and also because they're like junk food for the mind. I find they're entertaining enough, perfect for casual reading and when I don't feel like tackling anything heavier.Story in this one didn't quite appeal to me as much as the first couple of books did, probably because I just don't find plots about illegal drugs as interesting when it comes to trashy romance/crime novels. Sex and political scandals, on the other hand? Hey, if I'm going to be reading this genre anyway.As usual, Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb's propensity to change points-of-view randomly and often right in the middle of a scene continues to drive me bonkers.more
I loved how this book was about Eve and Roake trying to get married while there were murder's to be solved. I think the topic of it being a youth delivering drug was fasinating in terms of waht could be achieved in future technology. I did not suspect who did it in the end it was a surprise.more
'Immortal' being a highly dangerous drug which becomes a vicious bone of contention involving a model and the fashion scene. I rather got bogged down with too much analysis between Eve and Peabody towards the end, and lost the plot, a little, but it didn't spoil my enjoyment. Eve and Roarke pair each other nicely, and Eve's pal Mavis is hilarious. Eve's and Roarke's preparations for their wedding is squeezed in between events, and this was a highly entertaining read. more
Reluctantly determined to get through all the wedding planning, Eve Dallas allowed her best friend Mavis to take her to a designer for a wedding dress. During the meeting, Leonardo’s ex-girlfriend, the supermodel broke in and picked a fight with, everyone. Discovering later that she had been murdered and all the evidence pointed to Mavis, made this murder investigation personal for Eve. Doing every thing by the book all the while trying to find the one piece that would clear Mavis’s name, keeping up with her regular work load, and preparing for her wedding started to take it’s toll on Eve. With nightmares, she started to regain some of her memory from her childhood, all combining to leaving her wondering if she was doing what she should be doing or if she was just fooling herself. Book 3 ….. The first couple of books, I was not crazy about Eve (but came back for Roarke of course). After reading this one, I get Eve a bit better and can cut her some slack. Really enjoyed the scenes with Mavis and Roarke. For a murder mystery, this one was pretty good, it was easy to see who had NOT done it (Mavis), it was easy to see the connection between the cases, but I enjoyed the fact that for the majority of the book I had no idea who all was involved. Of course in hind sight I maybe should have guessed earlier, but I suppose I was in the mood to be surprised. Eve and Peabody may have taken care of things with the bad guy but in the end, Rourke is still the hero (in my opinion). Marriage might have an interesting effect on Dallas, will have to wait and see in ‘Rapture in Death‘.more
Det. Eve Dallas has been called out to a murder and the victim turns out to be her "snitch" Boomer. Boomer was over-killed, his face beaten beyond recognition, and then dumped in the water. This sets in motion a whole trail of murders and suspect swith the same m.o. and motives yet one would never connect some with the other. Super models, actors and actresses, directors, drug dealers, strippers, all intertwined in this odd mystery. Sadly Eve's best friend Mavis gets pulled into the mess as a prime suspect in the murder of Pandora, a supermodel who also was involved with Mavis's new boyfriend, fashion designer Leonardo. Eve makes it her mission to show how all the murders are connected so that Mavis is cleared.In the midst of all this mess, Eve and Roarke are planning their wedding. This is something that Eve is absolutely clueless about. She is like a fish out of water and getting very nervous about the whole thing. Leonardo is designing her gown, Mavis and his crew of hair/make-up and fashion assts. flutter around her having her just trying to let go and be. Luckily Roarke is so devoted to her, he carries her through all of this, because her nightmares about her past are getting very intense as well, just adding to her stress level. His strength is a boon to her.The usual cast of characters are present, getting to know Mavis a bit better, but the one I'm really happy about is P.O. Delia Peabody. She is witty and sharp, a great foil to Eve's sometime downer ways. Feeney and Commander Whitney round it out nicely with a couple of new characters introduced in the mix.This book had me going allll the way to the end. A real who done it for me, and I love that. Though I have to be honest, this wasn't my fave, not on the edge of my seat, and sometimes Eve's darkness gets to me. I also would have liked a bit more at the ending, it kinda just stopped. Not enough to pack it in and give up on this series. I love Roarke, I like the chemistry between the two, he is a perfect fit to her and really can push her buttons sometime and you just laugh.One of my fave quotes takes place while Eve and Peabody are on a stake-out and Roarke came along with her unofficially. Eve is using these special night vision goggles to look in the window of a suspect who is about to have some, uh, ahem, fun -Roarke tapped Eve's shoulder. "I don't suppose you have another pair of them?"more
The detective story is well-written and tensely paced so you'll keep turning the pages to see who did what and why.The romance is a bit more graphic than the earlier books, but not too much so.The 'flashbacks' to Eve's past are annoying, but I guess they serve their purpose in explaining Eve's behaviors. (Well, actually, I find it mildly disappointing that the author can only 'explain' why Eve is strong and determined by having her have to overcome such a loathsome childhood - it'd have been better if a woman could just be strong on her own... but anyway... everyone knows women just can't simply be born strong so a 'reason' is needed).more
I love the In Death series but part of me had forgotten how laugh out loud funny some of the earlier books are. This one had me giggling several times. The funnies lines are often the kind of throw away lines between characters and this contributes to the feeling of the characters are real. The realism of the characters is something I really appreciate. Although things have happened to Eve and Roarke that have never happened to me I can relate to their problems in blending lives and wanting to keep your life as it was. I can also relate to the dry sarcastic wit that Eve employs as this is something that we use in my family quite a bit. This book also discusses what family is and that we make our own family. This is something that I personally find fascinating and important. I have a fantastic family but at the same time I also have a fantastic family that isn’t my family by birth but by love. I would like this type of discussion to be more prevalent in today’s world.Overall this is a great book.more
I wish more detail had been given about the wedding. As much build up as we got about Eve's reluctance and difficulty committing, I would think the wedding would have gotten more airtime.Still, the "bridal shower" was a hoot. Seeing Dr. Mira get plow faced as well as Nadine was worth the price of admission.more
Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb, continues Lieutenant Eve Dallas's story with Immortal In Death. Book Three has Eve hustling as her best friend calls her from a murder scene and ends up charged as the prime suspect. While juggling her engagement and near marriage to Roarke, and trying to nail down the real killer and clear her friend, Eve is stretched thin as she begins to confront and deal with her own memories of a very troubled childhood.I don't recommend starting this book unless you have the next two or three books in the series available to read when you finish this one. Enjoy.more
I'm still happy with this series. I think what I really like is the interaction between Eve and her significant other, Roarke. Beneath the whodunit of the story, there's a lot of stuff about relationships and family and just dealing with other people.more
Not one of my favorites of the series--I'm not sure if it's because of all the little nits that bugged me, or if I noticed all the little nits because it's not one of my favorites. Frex: the biggest thing is that I can't buy that Eve, no matter how great a cop she is, would be allowed to head a murder investigation when her best friend is the primary suspect. Eve uses magnolias to describe one character's voice and another character's skin, yet doesn't recognize petunias. There's no reason for Leonardo to wonder if he's killed someone when he wakes up, other than to provide a red herring. Roarke admits sleeping with Pandora, yet elsewhere, Pandora's described as only sleeping with men who are easily manipulated. And of course the irritating "that's so first millennium" line, when you know they're not talking about 1 - 1000 A.D. Also, even though I've read this probably a dozen times, I still get the characters mixed up. And Eve's reaction to the revelation from her personal life was just goofy. I buy that she'd have trouble coming to terms with it, but the specifics didn't make a lot of sense. The mystery was pretty decent--the new drug, the overkill murders, but there wasn't much development on the relationship side, either, which is probably another reason for liking this one a bit less.more
Action packed, steamy love scenes, interesting plot. I like how the storyline continues seamlessly from the previous book. I thought the true murderer was kind of predictable. But overall, a decent read.more
Eve must prove her best friend innocent of commiting murder while making wedding plans with Rourkemore
Another satisfying installment int he series about Eve Dallas, a NYPSD homicide cop in the latter half of the 21st century who happens to be engaged to a multibillionaire. With the wedding itself imminent and preparations demaning her time, the last thing Eve needed was for her best friend to be in the frame for the murder of a top fashion model.A great read as always, with slightly less sex than usual. However I've learned the pattern of the book series now which led me to guess the identity of the killer quite early on. I don't think Robb laid enough groundwork for the twist at the end. However, more enjoyable than a lot of dross being published at the moment.more
