Book Review: Apprentice In Death by J.D. Robb

Apprentice in Death (In Death, #43)

The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people were dead at Central Park’s ice skating rink. The victims: a talented young skater, a doctor, and a teacher. As random as random can be.

Eve Dallas has seen a lot of killers during her time with the NYPSD, but never one like this. After reviewing security videos, it becomes clear that the victims were killed by a sniper firing a tactical laser rifle, who could have been miles away when the trigger was pulled. And though the locations where the shooter could have set up seem endless, the list of people with that particular skill set is finite: police, military, professional killer.

Eve’s husband, Roarke, has unlimited resources—and genius—at his disposal. And when his computer program leads Eve to the location of the sniper, she learns a shocking fact: There were two—one older, one younger. Someone is being trained by an expert in the science of killing, and they have an agenda. Central Park was just a warm-up. And as another sniper attack shakes the city to its core, Eve realizes that though we’re all shaped by the people around us, there are those who are just born evil...

                              My Review:

Apprentice in Death (In Death, #43)Apprentice in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
#43 in the In Death series. Someone is out shooting people in public. The first time the shooter took out 3 people on the ice rink in Central Park. After investigating it seems there is a sniper out there that can shoot from a couple of miles away using a tactical laser rifle and this person does not miss. When Eve brings her husband in to use his skills she finds out that there are 2 people, 1 young, 1 older. What we find out is horrifying. Then another attack happens that brings the city down to it's knees and why is the big question.
while this is going on there is also going to be a 1st birthday party for Mavis's daughter, which Eve is not looking forwards to.
Also Roarke is having Eve's office remodeled at their house and she is non to happy until she sees the results.

Book Review: Brotherhood In Death by J.D. Robb

Brotherhood in Death (In Death, #42)

Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.

Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD’s top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. When the two arrive on the scene, he explains that the last thing he saw was Edward in a chair, bruised and bloody. When he came to, his cousin was gone. With the mess cleaned up and the security disks removed, there’s nothing left behind but a few traces for forensics to analyze.

As a former lawyer, judge, and senator, Edward Mira mingled with the elite and crossed paths with criminals, making enemies on a regular basis. Like so many politicians, he also made some very close friends behind closed—and locked—doors. But a badge and a billionaire husband can get you into places others can’t go, and Eve intends to shine some light on the dirty deals and dark motives behind the disappearance of a powerful man, the family discord over a multimillion-dollar piece of real estate . . . and a new case that no one saw coming.

                               MY REVIEW:

Brotherhood in Death (In Death, #42)Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Dennis Mira has a cousin, Edward, who is a former Judge, Lawyer and Senator, and they have inherited their Grandfather's house. But the cousin, Edward doesn't want it and wants to sell it. Dennis wants to honor his Grandfather's wish and keep it in the family. Dennis goes to the Manor and finds his cousin there and he is in a chair with a bruise and blood on his mouth and then blacks out as he is hit in the head with an object. When he wakes up his cousin is gone. Dennis calls his wife Charlotte who is NYPD's top profiler and she calls Eve to figure out what happened.
Edward has made many enemies in his career so exactly who would do this and why.
What Eve has discovered is so sad and maddening.
This will have triggers of abuse.

Blog Tour: Wild, Wild Rake by Janna MacGregor











ABOUT WILD, WILD RAKE:

Wild, Wild Rake, the next sweeping, emotional, witty, and sharp romance in the Cavensham Heiresses series from beloved author Janna MacGregor.

Her first marriage was an epic fail.

Lady Avalon Warwyk never did love her husband. Arrogant, selfish, and cruel, it’s a blessing when she’s widowed and left to raise her son all by herself. Finally, Avalon can live freely and do the work she loves: helping fallen women become businesswomen. She’s lived these past ten years with no desire to remarry—that is, until Mr. Devan Farris comes to town.

Can he convince her to take another chance at happily ever after?

Devan Farris—charming vicar, reputed rake, and the brother of Avalon’s son’s guardian—is reluctantly sent to town to keep tabs on Avalon and her son. Devan wishes he didn’t have to meddle in her affairs; he’s not one to trod on a woman’s independent nature and keen sense of convictions. But she’ll have nothing to do with a vicar with a wild reputation—even though he’s never given his heart and body to another. If only he could find a way to show Avalon who he really is on the inside—a good, true soul looking for its other half. But how can prove that he wants to love and care for her. . .until death do they part?

              
                     MY REVIEW:


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lady Avalon Warwyck was married off to a man she didn't love and he didn't love her. In fact he bed her once and got her pregnant and that was the end of that. He kept a mistress which he ended up flaunting in front of he because that was his love. Then not to long after that she became a widow. She lives freely and helps woman who are in dire straits and become businesswomen. Avalon vows she will never get married again or do as a man says. Then Devan Farris comes into her life. He was sent to spy on her by his brother who is in charge of Avalon's son's fate into his teen years. Devan is also the Vicar and now in her town. He has always called her Lady Warlock. He has a wild reputation with the women. But he has never given his body or heart to anyone and he will prove it to her and show his true self to her.
I really enjoyed reading this book and the characters were a lot of fun together. There was instant chemistry between them.

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martins for the ARC to review.




Excerpt from Wild, Wild Rake by Janna MacGregor
Avalon read the first line in the letter from her son’s guardian, Gavin Farris, the Earl of Larkton. By all appearances the words resembled something innocuous, purely designed to lull a person into thinking it contained real concern with a touch of whimsical affection.
My dearest lady, I do hope this finds you and your intrepid son well.
“Avalon, did you hear the news?” Seventeen, on the cusp of eighteen years of age, Avalon’s sister, Lady Sophia Cavensham, looked up from her embroidery and smiled. Her gaze darted to her friend Miss Penelope Rowley, the one and only niece of the wealthiest gentry landowner in the shire. Though she was two years older than Sophia, Penelope had become somewhat of a fixture at Warwyk Hall over the last six months since she’d moved to her aunt and uncle’s home. The two women were inseparable.
Penelope let out a dramatic sigh then collapsed in a swoon across the pink-and-gold brocade sofa. In the process, she kneed the table, upsetting the delicate pink china cup and saucer. “Oww.”
Avalon tried to ignore their chatter. The Earl of Larkton’s correspondence had increased in frequency over the last several months. The weekly letters were turning into biweekly posts. Each one wanted more and more control over the Warwyk estate and more decision-making control over her ten-year-old son, Thane Pearce, the Marquess of Warwyk. She doubled her concentration on the letter as she read the entire first paragraph.
The purpose of my correspondence is to inform you that I’ve appointed a new vicar for the village of Thistledown. The man comes with impeccable standing and experience. In addition, his educational training is second to none. He’s a protégé of Lord Bishop Marlowe.
“He’s extraordinary.” Sophia’s dreamlike whisper floated through the air like a dandelion seed.
“He’s . . . simply exquisite.” Penelope’s voice joined Sophia’s in a chorus of dazzled fascination.
My dear Marchioness, it’s my pleasure to announce that my brother—
Avalon swallowed the sudden onrush of bile that marched up her throat. It couldn’t be. Fate was not that hateful.
“Mr. Devan—” Sophia sighed.
“Farris.” Penelope finished the sentence and slowly drew her hand against her forehead as if saying his name caused her to faint.
“No. Not him.” Avalon murmured the words aloud. The sanctimonious prig had arrived to make her life a living hell. Avalon grimaced to keep from casting her accounts. Now she was just exaggerating like the girls. She wasn’t really physically sick, but the news could make a person ill. “When did he arrive in the village?”
Clueless as to how the news affected her older sister, Sophia scooted to the edge of the crimson-and-white striped club chair that sat adjacent to Avalon’s matching one. “Two days ago. Penelope and I just happened to be walking in front of the vicarage when we saw the Earl of Larkton’s coach arrive. The new vicar followed behind on horseback.”
Penelope nodded vigorously as if Sophia’s story needed affirmation.
Avalon wanted to roll her eyes. The two women “never just happen” to do anything. They orchestrated and connived everything from shopping to men. God save anyone who crossed their paths. If one of the girls took a shine to any of the ton’s marriageable men, then London’s finest would soon understand what it meant to be hunted.
As the girls continued their chatter, Avalon devoted her full attention to the rest of the letter. Better to finish the horrid task, then take a long walk through her gardens. Though it was January and bitterly cold outside, a brisk hour of exercise would help Avalon clear some of her unease at the news that Mr. Devan Farris had invaded her village.
I’ve considered your request that the young marquess continue his studies at home, but at the age of ten, his interests would best be served by attending Eton sooner rather than later. That’s where boys turn into men. Your suggestion that he attend Harrow won’t do. His father had insisted that I promise he attend Eton. However, since his Latin skills are somewhat lacking, I’ve decided to hire my brother, Mr. Farris, to tutor him in the subject.
Her blood simmered at the words. The earl’s declaration was nothing more than gilding the lily. Everyone within fifty miles of London knew that Devan Farris sought to marry an heiress. Until he found one, the fortune-hunting vicar thought to use her son’s marquisate to pay double for his services. Since her son’s estate paid for the vicar’s wages, Mr. Farris would receive another wage from the coffers for tutoring lessons.

But what really brought her blood to boil was that the smug vicar would be nosing into her business, and that wouldn’t do at all. She and only she ruled the parish with a fair and impartial hand. No one, including Devan Farris, would upset her world.

Excerpt: 

The warm water slid over Annitas body as she dove into the crystal blue sea. It was a ritual she did every day without fail. The waters had called to her for as long as she could remember. Her parents hadnt been able to keep her out of the sea.
There were as many theories surrounding the waters around Crete as there were myths and legends about the ancient gods and goddesses. In fact, it was said that Zeus had been born in one of the caves on Crete. Annita didnt care about that, but she couldnt deny that without her daily swim, she didnt feel right.
Her strokes were strong as she glided through the water. Thankfully, she didnt have to fight the tourists for the beach since it was her familys land. Holdings that had been handed down for generations—and would pass to Annitas sister, Louiza, eventually. Annita wasnt upset about that. She had grown up in the house overlooking the Sea of Crete and its sparkling blue waters. Life had been idyllic, if not a little…odd.
In general, Greeks were a superstitious lot. How could they not be with all the tales of gods, goddesses, monsters, and heroes? Then there was the Seer in the family. Annitas great-aunt, Chara, had pointed to her and said, Shes the one.”
For the longest time, Annita hadnt a clue as to what Chara had been talking about, and she hadnt asked her parents either. Until, one day when she was thirteen, shed overheard their conversation and learned that she had a destiny of great importance—with a dragon.

Devoted in Death by J.D. Robb

Devoted in Death (In Death, #41)

When Lieutenant Eve Dallas examines a body in a downtown Manhattan alleyway, the victim’s injuries are so extensive that she almost misses the clue. Carved into the skin is the shape of a heart—and initials inside reading E and D . . .

Ella-Loo and her boyfriend, Darryl, had been separated while Darryl was a guest of the state of Oklahoma, and now that his sentence has been served they don’t ever intend to part again. Ella-Loo’s got dreams. And Darryl believes there are better ways to achieve your dreams than working for them. So they hit the road, and when their car breaks down in Arkansas, they make plans to take someone else’s. Then things get messy and they wind up killing someone—an experience that stokes a fierce, wild desire in Ella-Loo. A desire for Darryl. And a desire to kill again.

As they cross state lines on their way to New York to find the life they think they deserve, they will leave a trail of evil behind them. But now they’ve landed in the jurisdiction of Lieutenant Dallas and her team at the New York Police and Security Department. And with her husband, Roarke, at her side, she has every intention of hunting them down and giving them what they truly deserve . . .

                        MY REVIEW:

Devoted in Death (In Death, #41)Devoted in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This starts out with a couple on the road and their car breaks down. They decide to steal a car of the next person driving down the road. They were just going to steal the car but it ends up as murder. Ella-Loo actually liked how she felt after the kill and her boyfriend Darryl will do anything she says and these 2 are so in love that they don;t ever want to be apart. He was in jail for a few years before this and she stayed by his side. Even having a baby and dumping it at her parent's doorstep because a baby would just hinder them.
They are on the way to NY and leave a trail behind them but once they get into NY then thy are in Eve Dallas's jurisdiction and she won't stop trying to find out who is killing these people.

Book Review: Festive In Death by J.D. Robb

Festive in Death (In Death, #39)

Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn’t count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who were loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler’s enemies, she’s also dealing with her Christmas shopping list—plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband’s upcoming holiday bash.

Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Year’s 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.

                      MY REVIEW:

Festive in Death (In Death, #39)Festive in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Trey is a personal trainer and in perfect shape but winds up dead with a kitchen knife in his chest. With so many women in his life that he had hurt and screwed over makes this difficult for Eve Dallas to find out who did it.
It is also Christmas time with Eve doing her Christmas shopping, which she hates to do. Plus Roarke's Holiday bash in their house with all their friends had her having to be home for that day to help with the caterer's florists and whatever else needs to be done.
I don't think I will ever get bored of this series.

EXCERPT:
She shivered. The fire had gone out. She kept on her jacket while she added logs to the fireplace and kindling to get it started. Within a couple of minutes, the fire was going. She’d had a fireplace as a kid, so relearning her way around this one hadn’t been so bad. She went back to the kitchen and turned on the kettle for tea.
Bob growled low in his throat and stared toward the front door.
She froze. Her phone was in her hip pocket. Her gun was still in her waistband at the small of her back. This was something else Marshal Holloway had in­sisted upon. He’d taught her how to use a handgun. They’d held many target practices right behind this cabin.
A creak beyond the front door warned that some­one was on the porch. She eased across the room and went to the special peephole that had been installed. There was one on each side of the cabin, allowing for views all the way around. A man stood on the porch. He was the typical local cowboy. Jeans and boots. Hat in his hands. Big truck in the drive. Just like Marshal Holloway.
But she did not know this man.
“Alice Stewart, if you’re in there, it’s okay for you to open the door. I’m Sheriff Colt Tanner. Branch sent me.”
Her heart thudding, she held perfectly still. Branch would never send someone to her without letting her know first. If for some reason he couldn’t tell her in advance, they had a protocol for these situations.
She reached back, fingers curled about the butt of her weapon. Bob moved stealthily toward the door.
“I know you’re concerned about opening the door to a stranger, but you need to trust me. Branch has been in an accident, and he’s in the hospital undergoing surgery right now. No matter that his injuries were serious, he refused to go into surgery until he spoke to me and I assured him I would look after you, ma’am.”
Worry joined the mixture of fear and dread churn­ing inside her. She hoped Branch wasn’t hurt too badly. He had a wife and a daughter.
She opened her mouth to ask about his condition, but then she snapped it shut. The man at her door had not said the code word.
