Creation In Death by J.D. Robb (thoughts)

Summary from Goodreads:

"To police lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke, the corpse seemed like a ghoulish personalized greeting card. Not only was the young brunette victim an employee of Eve's billionaire hubby; products from his company were used in the staged crime scene. Dallas recognizes the slaying as the latest handiwork of "The Groom," an arrogant serial killer just returning from a nine-year break. What she doesn't realize immediately is that she herself is targeted as one of his next victims."

My Thoughts:

This series gets harder and harder to review the farther I get in to it because it is next to impossible to not share a spoiler here and there from past books. In this book Eve is up against a killer from a past case that was never solved. The killer seems to be taunting both Eve and Roarke, and it is turning out to be one of her toughest cases yet. What I liked about this book is that we got to see a little bit of Eve's past history as a rookie cop. This wasn't an easy case for Eve (back then and now) and it was a nice change to see her work so closely with Feeney. This series has become a comfort series for me that I go to whenever I need my Roarke and Eve fix or when I'm in the midst of a reading slump. This wasn't my favorite book of the series but it was a solid read.

This is a series that I can't help but recommend. Start at the beginning and watch as the characters grow throughout....I couldn't resist and found myself immersed in the world that Robb has created. Highly recommended!!

Bottom Line: Another great addition to one of my favorite series!

Disclosure: This book was given to me by a friend.


  1. I have read JD Robb before and enjoyed it. I think it might have been the first in this series.
    Glad you are enjoying these.

  2. I really must read more in this series...

  3. I love Roberts, but have never read her as J.D. Robb...sounds like I need to give it a shot!! Thanks for the advice on starting at the beginning. I like watching a character grow.

  4. Naida- You should continue on if you get a chance. The series really gets better the further along that you go :)

    Kailana- Yes..I do agree! LOL!

    Staci- Let's make a deal. I'll try Austen in 2012 and you start with Naked In Death by Robb. :)

  5. Arghh, I need to read book 1! I keep hearing about Roarke and this world and I am very very curious

  6. *headdesk* I didn't realize that JD Robb and Roberts were one in the same. Gah!

    If I don't make it back here I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. Happy holidays Samantha!

  7. Blodeuedd- I do hope you get the chance to try this series some time. It is one that I highly enjoy!

  8. Trish- The things you learn from the book blogging world :) LOL! I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas as well. Happy holidays!!
