Connections in Death – J.D. Robb



It’s hard to believe that we are already at book #48 in this series.

I know that many readers might feel intimidated by this number but please don’t be. I know a couple fellow bloggers and readers that just started this series this year, and they are already hooked and are looking forward to reading a JD ROBB book each month. At this rate, one book a month, it doesn’t feel too overwhelming and there is enough time for other books as well.

But if you love romantic suspense, love police procedural books and you enjoy strong women (this series is full of them), awesome male characters (you can’t count them all there are so many to swoon over) and fantastic banter and relationships that warm your heart – this series is a MUST read!!

Not every IN DEATH case is like the other.

Some hit closer to home, others are OTT, this one was gang related, and the author nailed it!! She must have researched the heck out of gangs, because the speech pattern she used and the stupidity that can be found in these groups had me shaking my head. Roarke called them “barking morons” – so very apt if you ask me.

As always there were so many wonderful one-on-ones between my favorites characters, but what I loved the most is the trust, faith, and the level of understanding between Roarke and Eve. After only a couple of years together, they reached a point in their relationship where both of them are so in-sync with one another it makes my heart all gooey.

For me, reading a JD ROBB book is like coming home and visiting family and friends. I’m looking forward to every single book and hope the series never ends. But if it does it’s finally time for a reread.

Connections in Death – J.D. Robb


Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads—and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering—whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle’s support.

Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.

Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances…
