4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Go Wrong with Eve and Roarke, 26 Feb 2008
This review is from: Strangers In Death: 26 (Paperback)
This mystery wasn't that mysterious for me, but possibly I'm just sharper than most knives in the drawer: NOT! I did, though, figure out who da killer was early on but that in no way lessened my enjoyment of the book.
With Eve and Roarke, it's not the destination but the absorbing scenery along the way that makes each journey worthwhile.
Great chemistry between this "old married couple" and I turned an internet friend on to this series a few years ago by comparing the on-going love story to "Hart to Hart," a 1980s American TV series starring Robert Wagner and Steffani Powers. Eve and Roarke are, of course, better but Nora Roberts didn't write for TV so it's no shame for ABC.
Feeney, Peabody, McNab, Sommerset and the rest are back. Roarke is as hot as ever and he and Eve have some wonderful scenes together. I was glad she didn't have as many bad moments, nightmares and such featuring her sicko Dad, may he rot in Hell.
It was good to see Charles and Dr. Lou featured more prominently in this story and I was a bit nervous of what fate awaited them. Whew! Scared me there for a minute.
Still want to lobby Nora to hook up Nadine Furst, the nose for news anchor who restores Eve's faith in the journalism profession. Baxter, the hound dog detective who's showing Officer Trueheart the ropes, would be good. Heck, I'd even consider Trueheart for Nadine but I believe Baxter would be more of a challenge as well as a better match for our girl.
Speaking of glamorous gals, what a nice touch for the Chief's wife, an ex-model, to be introduced in this episode. Nora's worked so hard over the years to painstakingly build layer upon layer to make this detective series work. The afore mentioned characters are but a part of the reason why the "In Death" books are such a treat to buy and devour as soon as they are released.
