Two more slightly predictable but very enjoyable installments in JD Robb's in Death series. I mostly read these for the non-case related scenes and I suspect I'm not alone!
I love Eve's relationship with Roarke, the vulnerability she only shows to him and the constant wonderment she experiences when examining her feelings for him. I get supreme kicks out of almost every scene with Peabody and their friendly bickering. Every cop on her squad, Nadine, Summerset, even Galahad (that fat cat!) make me smile. I guess these are the reason I'm still sticking with this series even after 38 books! The cases are a bit predictable but some new characters introduced in CiD are giving at least the procedural aspect a wisp of fresh air.
I'm almost all caught up now, one more to go and I'll be ready for the first 2015 release.
