Salvation in Death

Salvation in Death by J.D. Robb

What was this book about?

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is out to solve another murder. This time a Catholic priest is poisoned in the middle of giving a funeral service. Once they start trying to figure out who may have done this evil thing they find out that the priest is not who they think he is.

There is a history with this person, this area. And it will mean decoding all the lies that have been told over the years. Eve is the perfect person to make sure that this death is figured out.

But for once it isn’t a strict case of right and wrong. Eve will have to confront her own past to solve this murder. When is killing someone justified?

What did you think about the book?

Sometimes with this series I think I am a bit biased. I have read every single book in the the “In Death” series that has come out and they have become my favorite book series to read. Which means I am so excited when the book comes out that I almost don’t want to read it because then it will be over and I will have to wait months for the next one to come. It also means that I pretty much always LOVE the book.

I can’t say that it is any different with this one. Yes I probably would have liked to see more of the other characters that I have grown to love – Mavis, Nadine, Roarke, Feeny, I could go on and on. I almost feel like friends have come to visit when the book is at my house waiting for me to read. I can’t wait to see where things have gone with them.

Either way once again I think Nora Roberts/ J.D. Robb has hit another one out of the park. I wish there were more series like this that make me feel the same way.


Question for you?
What series of books make you so excited when it comes out you can’t wait to read it (but don’t want to because then it will be done)?

I haven't yet read this series, but it has lots and lots of fans. I put up an author spotlight on JD Robb at the library this week and it emptied in the first three days! Thanks for the review

You know I've never read any JD Robb books but heard so many good things about them. For me, the Harry Potter were books I anxiously waited for and then tried to draw out a bit so they wouldn't be over.

I loved the Harry Potter books as well. I have read them many, many times and made my husband an addict as well. In fact I think those were the first "for fun" books he had read in several years. So I totally understand what you mean about drawing them out!
