Review 'Festive in Death' by J.D. Robb

The kitchen knife jammed into his cold heart pinned a cardboard sign to his well-toned chest. It read: Santa Says You’ve Been Bad!!! Ho, Ho, Ho!

It's Christmas, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas is in no mood to celebrate. While her charismatic husband Roarke plans a huge, glittering party, Eve has murder on her mind.

The victim - personal trainer Trey Ziegler - was trouble in life and is causing even more problems in death. Vain, unfaithful and vindictive, Trey had cultivated a lot of enemies. Which means Eve has a lot of potential suspects. And when she and Detective Peabody uncover Trey's sinister secret, the case takes a deadly turn.

Christmas may be a festival of light, but Eve and Roarke will be forced once more down a very dark path in their hunt for the truth.

My Review:


A view weeks ago I read the fortieth book in the In Death series by J.D. Robb. I loved that book so when I was asked to review ‘Festive in Death’, the thirty ninth book in the series, I immediately said Yes!! I love J.D. Robb a.k.a. Nora Roberts writing style and I love that you can read these books in the series also as standalones. I don’t think I can read too much by this author.

In ‘Festive in Death’ Lieutenant Eve Dallas has to investigate the murder of Trey Ziegler, a personal trainer and just a terrible human being. It’s almost Christmas and all Eve wants to do is tie this murder up as fast as possible. Unfortunately there are a lot of potential suspects and soon the case takes a turn which will add more work to the Lieutenant. Between attending a fabulous Christmas party Eve’s husband Roarke planned and investigating a murder, this year’s Christmas is definitely going different than planned.

Even though I read the fortieth book in this series first before I started reading this one I really loved this book. This book is filled with twists and turns and I loved how descriptive J.D. Robb writes. There is a lot of details in this book and I could almost imagine myself being a part of the investigation. I loved how this book goes from moments in the investigation, to personal moments between Eve and Roarke. It’s just the perfect mix.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is an awesome main character. I love her personality and how she just isn’t really a social person but tries for her husband. I love her flaws and how she acts with suspects. It’s just so much fun to read and I couldn’t stop reading.

This book is definitely another great one by J.D. Robb. I would recommend this series to everyone out there. I even bought my mother in law the first book in this series because I just knew she would love it!!
