I really enjoyed "Celebrity in Death" as I do the entire "In Death" series. What I really enjoyed about this one was the subtle exploration into Eve's psyche now that she has had time to digest the events that occurred in Dallas (Dallas to New York).....we see the effect they had on Roarke, as well as some of the others in her life. Each book allows us to see a softer side of Eve, as well as see her visibly healing from those scars inflicted on her as a child. We also get an opportunity to see her relationship with Roarke evolve and grow beyond the mere physical (although it was always more than that) to a deeper understanding of each other. Who would want to miss an opportunity to revisit those characters that we have grown to know and love over the years. There is ever steady Peabody; the ever present Sommerset; the quirky but lovable McNab; sweet but still healing Dr. Morris; the candy-nut eating techno-geek Feeny; the ever calm Dr. Mira; feisty Nadine Furst; and the captivating Commander Whitney. And even those characters we didn't get to see in this installation, are mentioned or referred to. You would think that I would tire of the same old....Eve gets a case... can't sleep... has flashbacks of her abusive childhood.... looks to Roarke for solice and understanding...refuses to eat a vegetable to save her life...lives on coffee during the entire investigation....snarks at Sommerset....and finally in a stroke of genius and good fortune, solves the case, either with a few scrapes and scratches, or a full blown injury......BUT I DON'T. I simply can't wait for NR/JD Robb to deliver another.
The Icove Agenda was Nadine Furst's book that rocked to the best seller list, Eve Dallas had lived it, now she is standing on the set watching an actress play out the lines she herself spoke when finding young Dr. Icove dead in his home office. The case that caused such a media sensation had turned into the book that took the known worlds by storm had now turned into the movie destined to be a box office smash and instant classic. But, wait, Nadine might get another book out of this because the night the main cast, the producer, publist, director - and wife - pkuse Eve, Roarke, Peabody, McNabb and the Miras got together for a nice dinner party death ended up part of the entertainment.
Now, with a very small suspect pool of actors - and who knows when they are telling the truth - money men and people who know how to spin a tale to shift through to find out who killed the most unlike actress on the set, and then the pi she hired to follow her on set love interest, Eve is up to her eyes in lies, half truths and manipulations.
A wonderfully put together story where Eve gets her man, but doesn't have to run her into the ground to do it, and is able to get the case closed without damaging her new body leather coat Roarke had specially designed for her with body armor lining but butter soft leather outside. Yeah, he really gets her, he may not always be perfect, but he does get her. They also seem to be getting back on more solid footing since Dallas. A must read if you like mysteries, and double if you have been sucked into the world of Eve Dallas.(less) e
I would not rate this as one of my favorites of the series.
This book was much more low key - and ironically enough for a book all about the drama it was remarkably drama free. Roarke and Eve are on pretty even footing, Summerset and Eve are getting along, Eve is not overly anxious with everything that happened in the last book, and there no one attempts to kill Eve or Roarke.
Still a great book - I loved the Peabody/McNabb scene.
I really liked the interaction, this book seems to give people a little more depth, and it is a great time to show how settled in their places and the trust they have built over the series.
A new character is introduced who I really liked, and hope is incorporated into series.
This book will by no means have you gripping the edge of your seat, this is more like a nice visit with friends you have come to know and love over the years. I think this has been the mellowest In Death book, and I did like the change of pace.
The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because for this series, while a great solid book, it did not wring an emotion out of me, nor did it make me antsy to finish it then go back and re read. I think this is the slowest I have read one of these books, and that is not really a criticism, it was nice to have a change of pace. But for me to do a five star I have to want to immediately re read the book.
I tried not to give spoilers, just tell you how I felt about it. This is definitely worth purchasing and is still a keeper and still the best long running couple series out there :)
