I have missed this series for so long. I have felt lost without Roarke and Eve’s banter. With school over I am finally able to read more and that includes the rest on the In Death series. As you know for my previous posts that the In Death series follows Eve Dallas as she solve murders with her faithful friends. Here is the background on this novel provided by Goodreads: Eve has seen this crime scene before: the artfully arranged body of a young brunette, arms spread, palms up, body marked by the signs of prolonged and painful torture. Carved into her torso is the time it took her to die – in hours, minutes, and seconds. And on the third finger of her left hand has been placed a silver ring. Eve is catapulted back to a case nine years earlier, when a man whom the media tagged ?The Groom? put the city on edge with a killing spree that took the lives of four women in fifteen days. Eve and her partner Feeney, her friend and mentor, couldn’t stop him before he disappeared, only to resurface in other parts of the world to kill and kill again. But now The Groom seems to have come back to where he started. When it turns out that The Groom’s most recent victim 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. The corpse was washed in products from a store Roarke owns and laid out on a sheet his company manufactures. With the Groom’s monstrous return, Eve is determined to finish him once and for all. Familiar with his methods, she knows that he has already grabbed his next victim. But his sights are set on the biggest challenge of his illustrious career – an abduction that will test his skills and that promises to give him satisfaction as he’s never known. Time is running out on another woman’s life?and for Eve.
This one was very interesting and complex. This story is about women being tortured and killed (not unlike the other novels), however, this novel is about serial killer that was not caught 9 years ago when Eve and Feeney first stumbled on the case. I thought that was a great connection and plot twist. You really don’t see much of Eve falling at anything and this time she is able to see the previous murders in a new light. I thought the dynamics between Eve and Feeney were great both struggling with mistake they believe they have made in the past. Their relationship grows and it’s really cute and adorable to see. The banter between McNab and the other E-dectective.
As for the sex scenes, give me a moment while I swoon. I have missed Roarke way too much. He is one of my favorite of all time male characters in a romance novel. And if you have read this series or started you know why. He is just great. The sex scenes were really well written and I had no doubt about that. I was a little disappointed that there were not that many sex scenes but it made sense in the storyline. Forewarned in some parts of this novel you will need to fan yourself down.
Overall, I give this novel 5 out 5 kittens! Cause everyone LOVES kittens. If you love the In death series, keep reading cause I know I will. If science fiction crime drama is not your thing, don’t worry I should be getting new books for Christmas.
