Reunion In Death Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Murder was work. Some went about the job devotedly, others carelessly. And for some, murder was a labour of love.
On the day of his sixtieth birthday, Walter C. Pettibone is blissfully unaware of his impending death. His final act in life is to accept a glass of champagne by a woman with startling green eyes. A big mistake.
Homicide lieutenant Eve Dallas knows she faces a deadly foe - one with a frightening vendetta. And as the chase draws Eve dangerously close to her own dark past, her focus slips.
But then Eve's billionaire husband's name is put on Julianna's fatal list - and Eve ups her game. Luring Julianna into a dangerous trap which puts everyone at risk, Eve finds herself fighting for more than justice.

Eve is pitting wits against a killer she helped put away once before as a new detective. A woman who should never have been let out of jail and when she targets Roarke to get to Eve, the gloves come off.
Eve and Roarke are really building a solid foundation for their marriage but butt heads a lot in this one, as well as also celebrate their first anniversary.
Their solid connection really shows the most when Eve returns to Dallas and confronts her memories of what happened the night she started to become Eve Dallas.
Peabody takes on a cold case and brings it home. And I loved having Peabody’s parents spring a surprise visit and whammy Eve and Roarke with The Look.
Good to see a softer side to Eve when she turns to Dr Mira for advice and how she deals with going back to Dallas and those memories from her brutal childhood.
Roarke also struggles with feeling helpless about Eve’s past.
I have read all of these books twice already as I own most in paperback and am slowly collecting the kindle versions too.
I am rereading this series once more, updating and replacing missing reviews.
I just hope the newer cover version has the errors sorted out.

While this book was quite dark in places it also had plenty of the humour fans of the series already know to expect. Eve has decided Peabody is ready for more responsibility and she gives her a cold case to work on her own. I love seeing how far Peabody has come under Eve's watchful eye and seeing Eve as a teacher shows us a different side to her character. We also have a visit from Peabody's parents which I have to admit was a bit on the weird side, Peabody's mother somehow manages to manipulate Eve into inviting them to dinner and then she manages to get Roarke to invite them both to stay which was surprising to say the least. I'm not sure why they'd choose to spend their time staying with Eve and Roarke not with their daughter - well the mansion, swimming pool and incredible food might have something to do with it! - but it was still odd. There were some interesting conversations while they visited but I didn't like the way they ended up making Eve feel uncomfortable in her own home though.
I found the murderer in this book quite fascinating though, it's not often we go into a book in this series already knowing who the killer is but that's exactly what we have here. Eve has already caught this murderer once but she's now been released on parole and immediately gone back to her old ways. What's interesting here is seeing Eve work out how to capture someone who has spent years planning her crimes and who hasn't left them many clues to work with. It was also interesting to come across a female serial killer, not something we see often in real life or fiction. Julianna was a worthy opponent for Eve and their battle of wits was extremely entertaining.
It's not often that I get 14 books into a series and still find myself desperately wanting more so J.D. Robb is doing a wonderful job on that front and I have a feeling it's not actually going to take me too long to catch up on the remaining 30 or so books that have already been published!
I am still thoroughly enjoying this series. The dialogue and interplay between the characters has, in my opinion, improved a great deal since the first book. The character that is Peabody has become one of my favourites and the comments and asides are highly amusing.
The endings have all been quite thrilling but this one in particular had me holding my breath until the final moments (trying to avoid a spoiler here) and then I was on the edge of my seat. The fact that the end cannot really be in doubt as there are other books to come does not detract from the thrills and spills of the conclusion.
Another very enjoyable read.
I started at book 1, never expecting to get so totally hooked. Its set only about 45 years in the future, but the imagined changes by J D Robb are fascinating, who am I to say that it won't be true.
Dallas and Roarke, what complicated and damaged people, to have found each other and still be together despite coming at the murders from different sides of the fence, can't wait to see if she gets pregnant...think Roarke will have his work cut out then!!!
