    One thought on “Born in Death”

    1. Another totally enjoyable In Death episode, cleverly titled Born in Death since birth is as important as death in this story.At last Mavis has arrived at the final stage of her pregnancy and Rourke and Eve have to face up to being present at the birth. With so much else going on it is amazing that they actually make it. This is a book packed with deaths, disappearances and other crimes, so much so that I was beginning to get totally confused.Luckily Eve manages to stay in control and solve every [...]

    2. Eve has to throw her bestie a baby shower. She's not amused that the men get out of the whole thing and are going out drinking during it stinks, if you ask me, really stinks, that you get to go out somewhere drinking beer while I'm stuck at Baby Central. Just because you have a penis.""We'll think fondly of you over beer, me and my penis."She ate a little more, then smiled slowly. "You've still got to be in the birthing room when she pushes it out.""Shut up, Eve.""Your penis won't save you then, [...]

    3. Once again no time for a proper review which stinks because I absolutely LOVE this series.This installment was another solid read but I will say it started off a bit slow for me which is something new. To be honest I think it was just me and my mood.I continue to adore Eve and Roarke. I love that J.D. weaves the typical life stuff that they have to deal with into the stories. For Eve it was the planning of a baby shower that was sending her for a loop and for Roarke it was the fact that he had c [...]

    4. Suspense 4.5 stars / Romance 4.5 starsAs always interesting and captivating. The story got an unexpected turn. Loved Eve's strength. Thanks God they saved the last victim. Romance. It was good except for their 'fight'. Did I tell that I admire Eve? *lol* She is a very wise woman. Hard, yes, unapologetic, yes, but extremely devoted and just amazing! I get that Roarke and Eve are not fond of kids, but it was a bit ott.Bella Eve, welcome to the family! 👪Nevertheless and despite everything, Eve i [...]

    5. “Okay, okay.” She rolled her eyes. “I can handle it. But it stinks, if you ask me, really stinks, that you get to go out somewhere drinking beer while I’m stuck at Baby Central. Just because you have a penis.”“We’ll think fondly of you over beer, me and my penis.”” ”“Five or six what? What?” She thought…for a moment she thought her heart actually stopped. The buzz in her ears was so thick she barely heard his laugh. “That’s not funny.”“It certainly was, especial [...]

    6. What can I say - I love this book. The experience that Mavis, Eve, and Roarke (and of course Leonardo) go through is quite hilarious and right on the mark. This book really humanizes the cast of characters - the "crime" is despicable as are the criminals, which makes this police procedural a great book.Two thumbs up and 5 stars - highly recommend this book!

    7. 1st read 8-11 September 2013Aww Births usually make me laugh or creep me out[in books I mean] but it was great in this book, I even cried!2nd read 3-8 January 2016

    8. Bu ayrı bir güzeldi, gerçekten. Dava nişanlı iki gencin öldürülmesiyle başlıyor ve Eve bunun işleriyle alakalı bir şey olduğunu düşünüyor. Her ikisi de muhasebeci ve muhtemelen buldukları bir şey ölümlerine neden oluyor. Eğer tüm konu böyle gitseydi eminim sıkılırdım - ki biraz sıkmaya başlamıştı. Daha sonra öyle bir dönüş oldu ki, başka bir davayla birleşti ve ben elimden düşürmeden okudum o sayfaları. Dava ile ilgili en güzel kısım Eve'in şüphel [...]

    9. 5 Stars! By far the most amusing read in the series.This ragtag crew has endured the worst human nature can dish out, murders, kidnapping, mutilationhorrific things, and it barely even fazes them, but a baby coming into the world turns them inside out. Just the mere thought or mention of what the body has to endure during a pregnancy and birth has them cringing in fear and disgust. I was in stitches for a good part of the book, but the last hour I was howling with laughter. I thought Roarke woul [...]

    10. This book deserves five stars for just the scene where Eve is dashing back and forth between two hospital rooms and two women giving birth. The baby shower is a close second. And Roarke and Eve's reactions when two women go into labor in their home is a definite third. All of them are wonderfully funny. I love the way Eve is working two cases at once, going without much needed sleep along with Roarke, while she juggles the two and barely beats out the babies' arrivals with a solution to both cas [...]

    11. See review at audiobook/mmpb. Dallas needs a major kick in the butt about paying attention to major needs in her friends' lives, and Peabody keeps picking up the slack - like managing the details of Mavis' baby shower, since Eve is too clueless (and squicked out at the idea of being at the baby's birth) to deal with them.

    12. Eve, Roarke, Peabody and the crew are always a good read but the craziness off Mavis, Eve's BBF ready to deliver her baby and Eve and Roarke as her birth coaches just adds to the reading enjoyment.

    13. What can I say - I loved this book. So far, this is one of my all-time favorites of this series. Eve is investigating the murder of a professional woman. Quickly, the murder becomes two as her fiancé who happens to work for the same company is also found murdered. In the middle of all of this, Eve is tasked with throwing a baby shower for her BFF, Mavis. Both Roarke and Eve are at crossroads with Mavis’ impending delivery since they were requested to be in the birthing room. Eve is extremely [...]

    14. This one so good!Roarke wanted 5 or 6 kids, hallelujah for that Eve, LOL:)))Breathe Eve, breatheI kind of found out what was going on at 60%, but still fun to see how it's happened!I love this series, actually the mystery or suspense in it not that fabulous.I won't keep read them if just for those reasons, but I love it because the characters in this series are so wonderful and fun eventho the crime itself are grim. Yup, that what make me continue reading how Eve and Roarke keep supporting each [...]

    15. Eve Dallas is my hero. Just putting it out there. I had to adjust with her being cold and bitchy the first few books but man, she is awesome! So in here Eve is juggling two cases and no sleep. The murder of two young lovers and missing pregnant friend of Mavis. Let the investigation begin.I have to say out of all the books I've read in this series. This one is the funniest. The baby shower preparation." But it stinks, if you ask me, really stinks, that you get to go out somewhere drinking beer w [...]

    16. Born in Death4 StarsWhether one loves or hates her writing style, Nora Roberts, aka J. D. Robb, has hit on a winning formula with her In Death books and this installment is no exception. While the murder mystery and abduction storylines are rather predictable (it is easy to guess both the culprits and the motives relatively early), they, nevertheless, make for gripping reading and the resolution is exciting and satisfying. The interactions between the characters are fantastic as always, especial [...]

    17. Born in Death by J.D.Robb is the 23rd book in the In Death series. An accountant and her fiance are found murdered and an expectant friend of Mavis goes missing. Another amazing book with quite a lot happening leading up to Mavis giving birth to her daughter Bella. Eve manages to carry out her investigations while attending birthing classes and holding a baby shower for her friend. luckily she gets plenty of assistance from her loyal friends. Another fantastic book in a very entertaining and cap [...]

    18. Eve Dallas is simply a bad assed mofo, anyway you slice it. Extraordinary wealth, incredible greed, and basically all the human depravity of one family (Corporation) are exemplified herekes my brain sprain. Kinda makes me want to drive like dude in 'Baby Driver' or f like Gannicus in 'Spartacus'. Whatever, a great read and series, highly recommend the audio as wellI'm really into this series and hope to read several more in the coming weeks.

    19. Is the In Death series really up to 23 books? Wow. No wonder it's getting harder for it to have installments that stand out from the crowd. The last few have been more or less "meh", and this one didn't particularly grab me either. It wasn't bad reading--just didn't have any particular substance. The mystery was simple and unsurprising, and I was tired of the subplot of "Eve and Roarke are panicky about Mavis having her baby" a few books ago. (At least the good news is, now they can actually sto [...]

    20. I read this book out of order because it was the BoTM for a group I'm a mod in. Before reading this, I'd never read any of the books in the series and frankly, I wouldn't consider this a standalone story. The mystery plot of the story does stand on its own but the characters and everything is so set that there's no descriptions or explanations to help keep the confusion away. I debated on what to rate it but decided to leave the # of stars blank rather than rate it unfairly. TBH, I think a good [...]

    21. It's the first time I read J.D. Robb book and I didn't expected at all that this book is so intense. 2 cases in one book. Murders and kidnapping. It's like different matters but the truth is there is something big behind these 2 cases. The story is interesting, and I found that the mystery is pretty difficult to solve. Maybe because it's about the motive? or maybe because of the accounting theme? I don't understand anything about accounting so it's really hard to get into story sometimes but I e [...]

    22. You can see the following review also here: loveandlivetoread.wordpressAfter reading this book, I have to admit that I am very glad for the fact that this series has so many books! Simply amazing! Mystery, drama, humor, romance… everything combined perfectly!This time, Eve has to solve the mystery of the murder of two lovers and to help the very pregnant Mavis find one of her friends who is also pregnant and missing. Of course, she has the help of her sexy husband but this time there are some [...]

    23. BORN IN DEATH (Police Proc-NYC-Future) – VGRobb, J.D. (aka Nora Roberts) – 25th in seriesPutnam, 2006- Amer Hardcover*** Eve Dallas is investigating the murder of a young professional woman. One murder quickly turns into two as her fiancée is found murdered in his apartment; two murders, one killer. To Eve, the motive clearly ties back to their work. But in the midst of the investigation, Eve’s extremely pregnant friend, Maise, begs Eve to find a fellow mother-to-be, Tandy, who has sudden [...]

    24. Woo-Hoo!!! That was a good one. Plenty of love, emotions, tense, finger-gripping, good amounts of humor that has you snickering and laughing, aggravation, steaminess, some good doses of weirdness, some panic (still smiling about those bouts), some happy and touching moments, and everything in between. A great read that gets you started and keeps pulling you along. Love the interactions in this one. The ending was page-flipping and left you with a smile that's both fun and a sweet happy at the sa [...]

    25. I found this book difficult to put down, much like the entire In Death series I've read to date. The action picked up the first page, and through a maze of plot twists, some expected and some unexpected, the climax came quickly. When the dual reasons for the title of the book hit me, I had to take a moment. I loved the resolution, but would have liked to have seen a little more.

    26. Save me, Dr. Mira, because this installment was absolutely bonkers. It felt like I was trying to eat a birthday cake with different flavors because the baker wanted to please everyone at the party. I could barely understand anything, but the final chapter was spectacular. There was a double homicide, missing person, suicide, money laundering, and a rock star baby delivery. Most of the vernacular concerning the financial reports made my eyes glaze over and I couldn't keep the names straight. It w [...]
