Even in an age of cutting-edge technology, old beliefs die hard...

Conducting a top secret investigation into the death of a fellow police officer has Lieutenant Eve Dallas treading on dangerous ground. She must put professional ethics before personal loyalties. But when a dead body is placed outside her home, Eve takes the warning personally. With her husband, Roarke, watching her every move, Eve is drawn into the most dangerous case of her career. Every step she takes makes her question her own beliefs of right and wrong - and brings her closer to a confrontation with humanity's most seductive form of evil...


BOOK REVIEW:


Totally dug this installment.

Okay, so we have this lovable couple who grow more and more on me every book. I see why a man like Roarke made quick work of marrying Eve.

He's obviously bedded many a woman in the past as they do keep popping up. #Ifeelsorryforeveattheconstantreminder

Although the villain was easy to pick, there was a slight twist, which I enjoyed. There were pages spent trying to convince Eve to believe that it was another. They really were kind of  wasted pages because the reader can quite blatantly see the transparency there... but that is okay. What isn’t okay is a woman like Eve who is so thorough going down that track when we know it ain’t so. But these things happen in plot, but shouldn't in Eve's case as she is too intelligent to do that. She is too methodical with her process and always has Roarke's special devices to run her thoughts through. 


Roarke and Eve are just so delicious together, they truly are. He's just something special with her and their bedroom antics get a little saucier each book.

Peabody is a brilliant sidekick to Eve and I hope she continues to step into the limelight. Roarke was surprisingly surprised by her in this installment. #teampeabody

Mavis is adorable and quirky and in my head I can’t help hearing a young Melanie Griffith’s voice.

Enter Jamie, a new addition for me to enjoy. He outsmarts Roarke and that is intriguing. I hope he stays for a long time in this series. It will open up so much more storyline I think. 

The formula appears set in stone for this series…hopefully not for 46 books, but time will tell. I ain’t peeking. 

Another wonderful ride alongside Eve and Peabody, and of course Roarke. The man who is so super busy professionally—but always has time for his Eve and assisting in solving the case—while he takes on dominating the world with his business ventures and property purchases and also bedroom lurving.

I do really enjoy this series. I only have another 41 books to go. I need to step my game up because the math is showing many years to get to book 46 releasing in 2018, but more will still no doubt be releasing after it. One a month isn’t gonna cut it. I need to aim for two minimum.
