Karen Does J.D. Robb's Creation In Death...Sort Of...
Here's the blurb from Amazon:
"Lieutenant Eve Dallas keeps the streets of New York City safe in this extraordinary series. But even she makes mistakes, and is haunted by those she couldn't save-and the killers she couldn't capture. When the body of a young brunette is found in East River Park, marked by signs of prolonged and painful torture, Eve is catapulted back to nine years ago.
A man the media tagged The Groom-because he put silver rings on the fingers of his victims-had the city on edge with a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days. But now, The Groom has returned-and Eve's determined to finish him.
Familiar with his methods, Eve knows that he has already grabbed his next victim. When it turns out that the dead woman was employed by Eve's billionaire husband, Roarke, she brings him onto the case-a move that proves fitting when it becomes chillingly clear that the killer has made it personal. And chances are that he's working up to the biggest challenge of his illustrious career-abducting a woman who will test his skills on every level and who promises to give him days and days of pleasure before she dies: Eve."
I really can't be bothered reviewing this book, so I'll just put down the top ten things that I loved about Creation:
1. Eve Dallas - I love her humour (I have to put her first because after the Why Do People Hate Hillary Clinton discussions over at the SB's blog, I feel the need let the woman come first. *g*)
2. Roarke - Nuff said.
3. Peabody - Love the interactions with Eve.
4. Summerset - Love that Eve insults him constantly, but you know there's great affection underneath.
5. Mavis and Baby - Love the bit where she wops her breast out whilst Roarke is having his eggs sunny side up.
6. The dialogue - Too many great lines to go into, but the ones between Eve and her colleagues amuse me greatly.
7. The Plot - Total page turner, love that.
8. The emotional investment - The scenes between Eve and Roarke are just beautiful.
9. The humour - It's good to laugh for all the right reasons when reading a romance.
10.The lack of TSTL female characters - I love that LaNora doesn't turn Eve into a snivelling wreck who ultimately needs saving by the hero.
In short, it was another fab In Death book, so you really should go and buy.
