Celebrity in Death by JD Robb

 Futuristic Romantic Suspense
February 21, 2012

Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground—and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy over rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty. Eve, on the other hand, is more likely to roll her eyes than have stars in them. But she has to admit it’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody—drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K.T. had made an embarrassing scene during dinner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene—and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop.

My Thoughts
I love all the Eve Dallas books. This makes it now 34 in the series. Like all of the Eve books it takes you though a homicide investigation. But it isn't a normal investigation this it involves celebrities. Eve and everyone respond to seeing the Peabody look-a-like dead.
Like all of the J.D. Robb (AKA Nora Roberts) it will take you though all the ups and downs of Eve's investigation. And you learn that what happened in Dallas is still affecting Eve and Roarke. I love this series and hope that there are many more to come. I also love that it has the same people though out the whole series. That is really hard to find. I HIGHLY recommend this book. But it is something you have to read from the beginning. So make sure that you have lots of time!
