    One thought on “Reunion in Death”

    1. Reunion in Death is, I think, one of the best books in the entire series. It certainly runs thought the entire gamut of emotions, from laughter at all the witty conversations to tears when Eve goes back to Dallas and faces some of her fears.This is also one of the books where Roarke goes almost too far in the direction of controlling male. I always like to see him as perfect and he is most certainly not this time!Amazing too that Roarke and Eve have only been married one year. An awful lot has h [...]

    2. Suspense 4.5 stars / Romance 4.5 starsA female killer! Call me a sick f*ck, but I think the authors discriminate our gender by writing almost all villains as males I liked to read about a case with a female murderer. She was a very strong and clever opponent to the brilliant Eve.Eve was / is / will always be the best!Romance. I liked their time/his support in Dallas, but was slightly annoyed with Roarke toward the end. Stubborn man, but guess what? Eve can be stubborn too!

    3. The bed was covered in a spread exploding with what she thought might have been poppies There was one particular scene in this book that was heartbreaking. I cried for Eve and for Roarke, who cannot change the past.Watching her, knowing he had no choice but to watch her live the nightmare, Roarke broke inside.Roarke seems to be trying to ingratiate himself into her work life more and more I don't mind that. We get to see more of him. Eve, though, is not too pleased."Darling Eve." His lips foun [...]

    4. “By the way, Peabody looked wonderful. Love’s in the air.” (Luise)“Something’s in the air,” (Even grumbled)”I know where I am and when I am. And that we’ve got an anniversary coming in a couple of days. And, Carlo, I’ve never loved you more.” (Eve)”I feel exactly the same way, Miranda. ---- If you’re feeling better, perhaps I can let the children in. Carlo Junior, Robbie, Anna and little Alice are anxious to see their mum.” (Roarke) Mmm… this seems something Eve could [...]

    5. I skipped this one when I read the series because I couldn't get it at the time, so reading this book was like going back in time in the series set in the future. And, I gotta say, this is one of those series that gets better as it goes on. In this one we have a lady poisoning rich old men.She's maybe taking this a little too literally.Eve is going to get her, don't worry. She's a strong, powerful woman who is determined to kick this chick's ass because she's making it personal. And, all the men [...]

    6. Fourteen books in and I am still LOVING everything about this series. I LOVE that Roarke and Eve feel so real to me. Their love, their lives and all the challenges they face.I LOVE each of the side characters and how they are developing. Peabody is my favorite right now. The ebb and flow of her and Eve’s relationship is just perfect. She is funny and sweet. Feeney, McNab, Mira, Summerset and Whitney continue to shine as well.I LOVE that with each book there is no need for some big revelation o [...]

    7. When wealthy businessman Walter Pettibone is murdered at his sixtieth birthday party, Detective Eve Dallas is quick to recognise the face of the person who killed him. It's someone she helped put in jail ten years ago but now she's served her time and is out of jail seeking revenge. Eve can't work out her motive for killing Walter Pettibone - or her next victim and is frustrated by the lack of leads in tracking her down. But the murderer has plans to meet up with Eve again and is planning the pe [...]

    8. ★★★★★ Wow! How does this series just keep getting better and better? I usually listen to the audio, because Susan Ericksen does such an exceptional job with the narration, but I found myself “stranded” with only the paperback in hand. So many memorable scenes with wonderfully developed characters in this one, even the cat, Galahad.

    9. Another good one and more so because the killer was a female. She was smart and I felt like Eve had to work more for this one.Loving the series more and more.

    10. Interesting story. A killer from Eve's past came back to taunt her and to wage war against her. A stone cold killer who targets wealthy older men who meticulously researched the victims background and habits. My heart just about broke for Eve when she returned to confront her past. It was a nightmare but still she faced it with Roarke beside her. I couldn't love him more for it. "I can't imagine not wanting you so that it puts an ache inside me. Seeing you, smelling you, touching you so everythi [...]

    11. I really do adore this series and maybe it is because it's been awhile since I've read one but this was so hard to put down. I adore Eve and Roarke and have always loved their crazy and slightly messed up dynamic. Their love it real, no matter how ugly that sometimes gets. I loved seeing them work together just a bit more in this instead of butting heads like they usually do. A well thought out plot line that kept me turning the pages furiously.

    12. Posted on Under the CoversREUNION IN DEATH is hands down the best book in the series. It could possibly be one of the best books I’ve ever read. I consider all the In Death books to be above most books in terms of writing and characters but with this book, Robb has really surpassed herself exponentially.Robb takes a different approach to this book. We find out who the killer is early on, but in order to shut her down, we need to find the motive. As a birthday party becomes a murder scene, Eve [...]

    13. This was an OK read. What draws me to this series is the futuristic aspect and the investigation interwoven with it!But this book concentrated more on the personal aspect of Eve Dallas's life. There was too much info dump on her emotions and relations and I just felt like skipping all those chapters.From the start we know who is the culprit. The book is all about Eve finding the killer to stop anymore killings and (view spoiler)[even stopping an attack on Roarke's life. (hide spoiler)].The main [...]

    14. Loved it. Love this series. Yes, it's a police procedural (set in 2059), and she's a homicide cop and her cases are generally pretty convoluted and/or horrific. (And the bad gal in this case is evil!) But the reason I keep coming back in the ongoing development of the main characters. I love the development of Eve's (Dallas) & Roarke's marriage and their relationship to and with each other -- this book brings us to their first wedding anniversary. I love the love the continuing development o [...]

    15. 3.5 stars for this installment in the In Death Series. The mystery and crime of this book was awesome, and I enjoyed it very much. I didn't enjoy that this book took another long look into the tragic and horribly events of the past when Dallas was 8. It's really the ONLY thing I don't like about this series and I appreciate the books where it just touches on the subject. although I wish we could just be done with it and it doesn't have to play a part in each book. Also, this book felt really pre [...]

    16. Reunion in Death4 StarsIn her latest case, Lieutenant Eve Dallas investigates the poisoning of a wealthy business man. After ruling out the obvious suspects, Eve realizes that the victim was targeted by a newly paroled prisoner - a killer that Eve was responsible for incarcerating. With vengeance in mind, the killer has set her sights on Eve and is determined to fulfill her deadly agenda. The mystery in this installment is interesting, mainly due to the sociopathic nature of the villain who alwa [...]

    17. Another great read - love the fight scene at the end especially, plus things get blown up a couple of times!We meet Peabody's parents (and I really like their characters). My "favourite" female serial killer on the loose using her speciality "arsenic poisoning" and then happily set up and apprehended in Eve fashion!Two thumbs up and 5 stars!

    18. This is the fourteenth book of the In Death series, set in 2059, and featuring Eve Dallas, a lieutenant in the New York Police Security Department. She and her husband, wealthy billionaire, Roarke, have just returned from a two week vacation. Eve is feeling more relaxed that we've ever seen her until she is assigned to the homicide of Walter Pettibone who was poisoned at his birthday party. After Eve eliminates all the obvious suspects like the trophy wife, the ex-wife, and the grown children, s [...]

    19. This might be my favorite in the series so far. The mystery was great. Julianna was seriously deranged and I couldn't wait for Eve to give her what she deserved.I not only loved the mystery, but really every part of this book.We got to meet Peabody's parents, who are just such a delight. Eve made huge steps in moving forward from her past. And there were some scenes between her and Roarke that brought me to tears.Not to mention McNab and She-body! *dies*

    20. I hate what Roarke did going around Eve in this book - and in the previous one. I think he gets off too easy with it. And I hate Whitney in those situations also. I also don't really like the ending. I liked their anniversary celebration, Phoebe and Sam, and the trip to Dallas. It's always a bit of a see-saw to me in this book with those things I like and those things I don't.

    21. There were way too many misspellings and strange hyphenation in my Kindle edition. And even that couldn't take away my enjoyment with this installment. Number 14 is the best of the bunch so far, if you can believe that!

    22. Reunion in Death is the fourteenth book in the lengthy and highly entertaining In Death series featuring New York City homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas. While it can be read as a stand-alone, I try to recommend people read the series from the beginning (as daunting as that appears) in order to fully appreciate the amazing character development of everyone in the cast. I am fourteen books in and I think this may be one of my favorites so far.The story starts off with a wealthy businessman [...]

    23. This was a good one. The antagonist was smart, really smart, and one step ahead of Eve for most of the book. For all the cat and mouse, it was satisfying in the end when Eve embraces her "grey" side, going a little off the grid, rather than sticking to the rules in the final showdown.It lost a few points with the side story for Peabody's first case. It was too easy, and I wanted Eve less involved so Peabody could really take the reins. I also wanted some more closure on that one. How did the hus [...]

    24. Wow! I'm inching my way up there! I see Robb's about to publish #40, but I remain undeterred :)Some installments are very good, and some I just love. This book falls into the love category for me. Eve takes a trip to Dallas, TX and relives and confronts the childhood nightmare that has been haunting her and edging closer to the surface all year long. It's hard to make me cry, but Robb did it with this heart-wrenching scene. Then we have Eve and Rourke's one year anniversary, and trust, he put AL [...]

    25. This was a rather interesting installment in the Eve Universe. She comes to a few understandings about her relationship with Roarke, and how to interact with families, as Peabody's family comes to town. The murder mystery was more of a black widow serial killer than anything else, so there were really no surprises there, but the chick fight at the end was pretty awesome! All in all, another enjoyable J.D. Robb book!

    26. Juliana remains my favourite female perp in the series. Nasty as she is, I like her smarts, her ingenuity and her ability to go toe to toe with Eve. Reunion marks the point in the series (for me at least) where Eve begins to close the circle and chapter on her childhood. Great book. One of my top five.

    27. This is my favourite so far! Eve outwits her nemesis as usual but the scenes with Roarke in Dallas are heart-wrenching. The scenes with Peabody's parents and Eve's discomfort with ordinary situations is hilarious. It was nice to see that Eve did plan for their anniversary though. Looking forward to the next installment!
