This is short and non-stop from start to finish, and once again, Eve is shown with some slight interaction with kids...which once again made me wonder if the author is gearing up towards ending the series. JD Robb has apparently said that it will not continue once Eve becomes pregnant, and it does seem if Eve is slowly softening.
This is a great little tale, and I liked seeing old fave characters, but I did think that it was a little shorter than most In Death novellas, and rather expensive at this price. I actually read this in the anthology Mirror, Mirror, which contains 4 additional tales (by Mary Blayney, Elaine Fox, RC Ryan and Mary Kay McComas), for just a little bit more than the price of this single title, so I'd recommend that as a more reasonably priced read.
The antho itself, though, is mismatched and I skim-read the remaining tales, so I suppose if you only want the JD Robb tale, the Kindle edit might be the better option, though you can't sell that on to recoup monies.
