    I know I know All of you are thinking how the heck after 22 books I am still handing out 5 star reviews Well it is simple I love these books I love JD Robb's writing I love Eve and Roarke And I love all the secondary characters Peabody will always be at the top of this list with Feeney McNabb and Dr Mira following There was a moment in this one when Dr Mira's husband did something that warmed my heart I love these two I hope JD weaves him in to the story lines a bit There really wasn't anything too crazy going on with the murder and the mystery side of things in Memory in Death Maybe because it was Christmas time I did piece things together before the reveal but it was still intriguing It loved spending Christmas Eve and Christmas day with Roarke and Eve As always Eve is stunned by the beauty in his gifts to her but it would be Eve who surprises him with the best gift evera photoAnd poor Galahad Eve had fun with him on Christmas Eve And I have to admit I've done this to my kitties too

    This was a good book to reread this week since it is set at Christmas and I am still in a Christmas frame of mind It was fun to read about the holidays in the Roarke household and see them exchanging giftsI thoroughly enjoyed Memory in Death It was fairly light hearted for an In Death book I think only one person actually died and there was a lot of time spent on personal relationships Poor Galahad ended up wearing reindeer antlers but was high on catnip at the time so he probably did not mindEve and Roarke dealt with a few issues but they are both maturing in their relationship and manage to solve their problems without too much difficulty Peabody gets one of her best Christmas presents ever and Mira and Eve arrive at a new understanding For once I guessed the murderer very early on but still enjoyed watching Eve come to her conclusion The finale was uiet without the usual drama but still satisfactory As I said earlier a thoroughly enjoyable read

    I liked Eve for most of this book She's sarcastic as always but has become nicer to Roarke over time and even expresses her love for him freely now Of course she has a cat which is usually a strike against a book character for me You know I'm a dog person But at least she routinely expresses disdain for this cat I've got this fat cat hanging around I think we should torment him on Christmas make him wear some of those antler things You know like a reindeerRoarkeUndermine his dignity Good idea She gets points for that idea and Roarke is already the book love of my life but gets extra points for his reply Cats love getting dressed up for the holidaysIn this story we get Eve's first foster mother coming for a visit Only it turns out that she was of a foster monster who tortured the already tortured young Eve And she's not really there for a visit she wants to shake down Roarke for money The good news is that someone kills the bitch It's a Christmas miracle The gift that keeps on giving as she burns in hell for all eternity That's right No wifi Now go out and confess your sins now because I hear heaven has unlimited data and rare pokemonSo now Eve has to thank find the foster monster's murderer Some days are better than others at workThe bad news is that there is only one murder in this book and it's not very satisfying If the foster monster was going to die couldn't they at least torture her first? Is that asking too much? sigh Oh well it was still a good book and worth reading

    An enjoyable episode where the personal life of Eve and Roarke gets nearly as much attention as the murder mystery making for a nice change of pace It's close to Christmas Eve's second with Roarke and she's looking forward to it but then a bad reminder of her past shows up in her office in the form of Trudy Lombard Trudy was Eve's first foster parent after she was found bloody and traumatised next to her dead father's body But Trudy was not the soft motherly foster parent that Eve needed at that time but a horrible woman who treated her charges cruelly Now she's discovered that Eve is a policewoman married to a very wealthy man and thinks she might be able to gain some advantage from this When Trudy is found murdered two days later Eve is the detective called in to investigate her deathIt was good to see Eve relaxed in this case despite the memories Trudy brought back for her She even gets into the swing of Christmas organising some gifts and enjoying decorating the house for their annual Christmas party Eve tries to follow up leads amongst the Christmas preparations and shut downs at work but seems to be getting no closer until after Christmas when things start to click into place and the culprit is exposed It's great to see the high standard in this series holding up so well after so many books

    I know I know I’m obsessed with this series There must be something subliminal inside the books because I cannot stopAnd the most amazing thing is that even if all the books are similar they’re all different and the mysteries are excellent In this book the crime touches Eve’s unfortunate foray into the foster care world It was not enough for Eve to have a monstrous scam of a father she also had a monster for a foster mother A cheating lying sadistic monster disguised as a loving cookie making mommyI think she deserved her daughter in law LOL ““No No No hugs No hugs No Oh shit” she muttered as Peabody threw her arms around her and sueezed “We’re on duty we’re in public Let me go or I swear I’ll kick your ass so hard that extra five pounds you’re whining about will end up in Trenton”Peabody’s response was incoherent and muffled against Eve’s shoulder “Get snot on my coat and I’ll strangle you with that scarf after I kick your ass” ”“Catnip” She held the mouse up by the tail in front of Galahad’s face “Yeah that’s right” she said as Galahad reared up on his hind legs and grabbed the mouse with his front claws “Zeus for cats”“And you a duly designated officer of the law” Roarke said “dealing”“I’ve got my sources” While the cat rolled deliriously with his new toy Eve stuck the antlers in place “Okay you look really stupid so this is only for tonight We humans have to get our kicks somewhere”“Is he trying to eat it” Roarke wondered “or make love to it?”“I don’t want to think that hard about it But he’s not thinking about cookies any”” Well another excellent one On to the next

    Another solid read Is there ever any other read in this series? Not so far anyhow It's the holiday season The house is decorated a little too much according to Eve A face from the past appears and Eve is not happy Nor is Roarke for that matterOf course they have their ups and downs but making up is such fun I'm a lousy wife I get that I don't remember to do things don't know how and don't give a rat's ass about finding outYou're not a lousy wife and I'd be the one to judge that But you are Eve an extremely difficult woman All the regular characters are there Love them all Easy now Roarke murmered I've got you Was kept guessing up to almost the end Nearly halfway through the series not bad “Nothing ever seems too bad too hard or too sad when you’ve got a Christmas tree in the living room All those presents under it all that anticipation Just a way of saying there’s always light and hope in the world And you’re lucky enough to have a family to share it with”

    Happy sigh This is one of my favorite re reads I tend to read it around the Christmas season But seriously I needed a happy as it can be In Death book It gets to be a bit of a grind to just read about rape and murder in every other book Memory in Death In Death #22 is a really good Eve Dallas and Roarke book We get to spend about eual time with Roarke in this one And I just sadly realized it's been a while since we got a significant third person POV of Roarke in an In Death book Hmmm I am going to have to go back through my re reads and see when that dropped off As I was saying we get a lot of Eve a lot of Roarke and for once we actually get to delve into Eve's past I really wish we got information about her Robb has gone fairly deep on Roarke's side of the family but as long time readers know we solve the mystery of Eve's mother and father in New York to Dalls In Death #33 and you would think that Eve just popped up at age 8 and then transformed into a cop Memory in Death does such a good job of giving us layers into Eve's life I really do wish that Robb would revisit that well in the recent booksMemory in Death has Eve confronting her former foster mother Trudy Lombard who has come back to blackmail Eve once she finds out that Eve is now married to the richest man on the planet look Roarke's a billionaire apparently several times over so I am just going with he is the richest at this point Eve gets a nasty shock since recalling Trudy and the things she did to Eve as a kid locking in her room and forcing her to take cold baths throws her for a loop When Trudy is found dead hit with a sap then the case turns toward Eve and Roarke This was a really cool case to sink your teeth in I didn't care about the victim but it was still pretty awesome how Eve figured out who the doer was and why And I of course wonder now what happened with the characters from that case Too bad I don't think Robb has thrown out any commentsWe get to see Eve hit for a loop several times during this investigation Due to the events in Origin in Death or as I call it now the dreaded Icove case Eve is on the outs with Dr Mira She is feeling even unsettled when a woman she hasn't seen since she was a child popping up insisting that she's Eve's mother Eve has an uncharacteristic scared response and then when she lets Roarke know about itoh boy We get to see the dark side of Roarke that we don't really get to see much in the series any I had to crack up when Trudy went and tried to shake down Roarke Dude Dude Hotness We get a couple fight my least favorite thing between Eve and Roarke and honestly I was on Roarke's side on that one Eve says some pretty terrible things to Roarke because she realizes that Trudy is only popping up due to her being married to him She throws Roarke's mother's murder in his face and the fact that even though that was terrible he has a whole family in Ireland now gah I hated re reading that I cringed the whole time going oh no Thankfully Eve and Roarke work through itWhat I thought was interesting this time through though is that Eve and Dr Mira are on the outs because of Eve's last case They both feel their way around each other but I loved it when Eve and Dr Mira worked through it And this is the beginning of Eve starting to realize that Dr Mira in her own way is Eve's mother and will mess someone up that will hurt one of her kids We get the usual characters of Peabody McNabb and Feeney Due to Eve's close ties in the case I thought it was hilarious that Peabody had to interview Roarke We also get some other characters besides Eve's foster mother her biological son Bobby who I just felt pity for throughout and Bobby's wife The writing was in terms humorous clever and a few times sad when realizing how terrible Eve's foster mom was Considering the subject matter this ended up being the most light hearted In Death book I think I have read Since this takes place over Christmas you had Eve dealing with decorators decorators who also got into fights and hilariously putting antlers on Galahad I also really loved that we got to see Roarke and Eve exchange gifts with one another It was nice to just seem them having a really great couple moment I do tend to skip over the later books romance scenes since they don't move me much any But the earlier books do make me smile The ending was pretty cool and I loved how Eve identified the murder I seriously recall the first time I read this not having a clue who done it which to me is what makes a great mystery book
