The Sunday Salon- Imitation In Death by J.D. Robb
Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is warm and cozy wherever they are. We just got a few more inches of snow here and it feels like winter may never end. That being said, yesterday was a perfect day to curl up with a book and that is just what I did. I gulped down New Moon by Stephanie Meyer and found that it was the perfect way to spend the day (aside from cleaning which couldn't be ignored). I also finished The Kingmaking by Helen Hollick this week and absolutely LOVED it! I'm excited to have found this new author and am looking forward to reading the other two books in this trilogy. I've picked up Wicked By Any Other Name by Linda Wisdom as my next read and am excited to begin it. Oh yeah, America and the Age of Genocide came back in from the library so I'm back to reading that as well. Yay! Well, that's my reading news for the week so on to the review:
Imitation In Death is a continuation of the In Death series featuring Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke. In this novel, Eve is dealing with a killer who imitates famous serial killers like Jack the Ripper. The killer leaves a note on the body of his first victim addressed to Dallas, and just like that Eve is caught up in a new case.
I really enjoyed this book and find that for me this series just gets stronger and better. I love the characters and their relationships with one another which is what makes this series for me. They grow from book to book and it is fun to see it. Eve is prickly and difficult but I just love her as the main character. And the ending of this book was great! I'm so excited to see how this changes or affects Peabody and Eve's relationship or if it doesn't change it at all. Of course, I love this series but if you haven't read it yet then give it a try!
My Rating/Recommendations: 4 out of 5; Recommended to those who enjoy mysteries, romance, and lots of character growth
