REVIEW: Holiday in Death

Title: Holiday in Death
Author: J.D. Robb
Finished: October 9, 2011
Pages: 326
Published: 1998
Format: paperback

I’m loving this series more and more with every book and I’m so excited to eventually catch up.

In the latest adventure Eve is searching for a holiday serial killer and the only connection is a dating site and the employees are either too helpful or unwilling to talk.

With the help of her friends, co-workers and husband, Eve tracks down the only link between the deceased and Personally Yours, the dating website. While in the process, Eve finds out that despite her hard outer shell, she can not always protect those she loves or hide her feelings when it comes to survival.

This was another great time in the lives of Eve and Roarke. The next one is even better who who knows what is in store for the future books.

2012 Countdown Challenge

As far as I know, no one has really started up the next round of Countdown Challenge and I’ve went back and forth between whether or not I wanted to do the same thing this year, especially since I didn’t complete the 2011 challenge by only one book.
